Seeking the 1841 census for George Dickson, born 1806 in Tweedsmuir, Peeblesshire. I don't know what date the 1841 census was taken. If it was after 18 June, then his new bride Janet would be listed with him. Else he's perhaps a stray somewhere, considering the age of 35.

All the best,

Hi Bruce

The only entry I can find on the 1841 is for a George Dickson born c1816 in Peebleshire, Scotland. His address is Carlops Coal Houses and he is a coal miner. With him are Janet Dickson born c1826 and she is a coal Beaver, and Jean Dickson born c 1821 and she is a coal beaver as well. The 1841 Census for Scotland was taken on the night of 6 June 1841 so I don't think these are your lot, even allowing for mistranscriptions of age.

I looked in England 1841 and found a George Dickson born c1811 (could be 1806 allowing for the rounding down of age in 1841) in Scotland and he is District Fourhouse Barracks, Hampshire and a Soldier.

I'm sorry if this is not much use to you but that's all I can find.

Dee,

That's what I was afraid of. Rascal, that George. I can find him elsewhere in 1851+.

I appreciate your efforts, including the look at the English records.

Best regards,

Bruce
