Dear Mr Scott
I can find no trace of William Scott attending the school. However I do have some information concerning the rest of your family.
George Scott entered GWBC on 12 October 1884, aged 5. His address was
8 Buccleuch Place.
John Murray Scott entered in October 1886, aged 6. His address was
28 Buccleuch Place. Their father was George Scott junior. I am not sure whether a mistake was made over the house number in Buccleuch Place in our records or whether the family moved around the street!
Ian Murray Scott (DOB 12 December 1910) was admitted on 1 May 1917.
His father, John Murray Scott, was an advertising agent. They lived
at 9 Dick Place. Whilst at GWBC he played rugby, and belonged to
the OTC and the Scouts. He left in April 1929 to go to Edinburgh University to do medicine. There is a brief entry in our World War II War Record which reads
1929 SCOTT, Ian Murray Capt. R.A.M.C.1940-45 Algeria, Sicily, Italy.
I hope that this information is of some use to you.
