Maureen & Graham, it looks like Olive Leaver (1816), daughter of Bannister Lever (1780-1839) and Betty Whitaker (?-1837), married John Nutter (1816), and Abraham Leaver was her child.

I cannot find Abraham Leaver (1839-1919) in either the 1871/81 or 1891 census, and I cannot find a birth registration for Abraham circa 1839/40. Also, it would be nice if there was a marriage between an Olive Leaver and John Nutter to confirm everything.

Possibility…

13 Union Place, Edinburgh
Abraham Leaver, 53yrs, Lodger, Commercial Traveller, b. England

Kris, I've spent ages before now searching for an Olive Leaver/ John Nutter marriage. All I ever came up with was Alice Leaver/ John Nutter 6/1/1840. See my post 27/4/08 ( viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1129 ). It all got complicated.

I've got Abraham 1891 somewhere - I posted it recently, I just need to find it.

It was 22/1/09:

Hi Maureen, I thought I had read a post about this family, but I couldn’t find anything in the search.

Anyhow, after reading through your post again, I believe Alice and Olive are the same, and I am going to add this info to her name.
