In the 1882 Scottish census Emile Duvoisin, from Switzerland, was an iron merchant living at 27 Windsor Terr., Glasgow.
By 1891 we have Emile Davaisin (this is an ancestry transcription) married to Sarah with son John, living at 6 Broomhill Ave., Glasgow.

It is likely that Sarah was a member of the Hurll family hence the inclusion of her maiden name as a middle name for her son, John
