This is another photo from the great album purchased last month. And on back we have names and ages! Madge Balleny, four years, four months, and Willie Balleny, three months! Photo taken by J. C. Tunny, Fine Art Photographic Galleries, 13 Maitland Street, West end of Princes Street and 19 Salisbury Place, Newington, Edinburgh.
With just a bit of research I found a 1901 census for Scotland – father, James Balleny, 52, mother, Mary, 49, daughter Margaret, 9, and William, 2. James Balleny is a Secretary of Brewing Coy. Madge is a nickname for Margaret, so it is very possible this is the correct family. William married Christine Mitcheson. Does anyone have these names in their family history?
