hi julie,

i wonder where thomas was? IGI showed him as being born in 1838, Falkirk.
IGI shows the following:

Thomas Alexander Aitken born 1838 in Falkirk to parents
Henry S Aitken and Eleanor Elizabeth Mowat (sometimes written Eleanor Isabella Mowat)

On IGI:
Children of Henry S Aitken and Eleanor Elizabeth Mowat shown as
Thomas Alexander Aitken B23-4-1838 Falkirk, chris 8-11-1838 Falkirk
Elizabeth Clark Aitken chrs 5-7-1840 Falkirk
Margaret Aitken Chris 26-5-1842 Falkirk

In Thomas Alexander Aitken's death obit in the Glasgow Herald, dd June 8, 1893 states, "Aitken, at 19 Albion Crescent, Thomas Alexander Aitken, son of the late H S Aitken, W.S. Edinburgh"

Regards
Jackie

Jackie,

Unless its a different family that I found. Will have another look later on. Also 1851 cant seem to find Henry on there either, only a Henry with a wife Margaret and children. But there is a Thomas Atken born Falkirk abt 1840 in Glasgow with mother Isabella (but her pob is Berwick Upon Tweed) and she is an inn keeper. They do like to hide. So will have another look at that one again later on.

Had a look for Thomas this was the only one that came up in 1841 for birth Stirlingshire.

Civil parish Falkirk
Address Dorator house

Thomas Aitken born age 3
Elizabeth Aitken age 40 born England
Elizabeth Aitken age 20 born Stirlingshire
George Aitken age 3 born Stirlingshire
John Aitken age 10 born Stirlingshire
Margt Aitken age 15 born Stirlingshire
Thomas Aitken age 45 born Stirlingshire occ writer
Isabella Maeallan (as transcribed ) age 26 born Stirlingshire

As the 1841 census dosnt give household relationships its hard to determine if Thomas is their son or a visitor. There must be a connection between the 2 famlies as both Thomas and Henry are writers.
