Raeburn Ancestry, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Raeburn family history as sourced from a memorial at Glasgow's Necropolis burial ground. This provides information on the following deaths:

  • James Raeburn on Oct 29th 1880 age 84 years.
  • Janet Hay, wife, on Nov 18th 1846 age 49 years.
  • Various children who died in infancy, Inscriptions illegible.
  • James Raeburn Jr died Sept 4th 1895 age 64 years.
  • Elisabeth, daughter, died June 9th 1906 age 47 years.
  • Marion, daughter, widow of Frank Maskew, March 18th 1918 age 49 years.
The name Raeburn appears to originate from the Scottish Borders and translates as:
  • Rae=Deer or Roebuck
  • Burn=Stream
