Hello,

1861 Scotland Census
Name: Sarah Pollock
Age: 31
Estimated birth year: abt 1830
Relationship: Wife
Spouse's name : John
Gender: Female
Where born: Paisley, Renfrewshire
Registration Number: 573/2
Registration district: Paisley Low Church
Civil parish: Paisley Low Church
Town: Paisley
County: Renfrewshire
Address: 9 Senthill ?
ED: 14
Household schedule number: 41
Line: 25
Roll: CSSCT1861_80
Household Members: Name Age
John Pollock 33
Sarah Pollock 31
John Pollock 10
Stephen Pollock 8
James Pollock 5
Margaret Pollock 5 Mo
I'd like a check of that address please. I'm wondering if it is in fact 8 not 9. Also I'd like pob for John.


----

The 2nd John:

Elizabeth ARROL married a John POLLOCK baker journeyman in 1868 at Paisley. Elizabeth died in 1874 in Paisley. Looking at 1871 census that must have been John's 2nd marriage and it looks as though he married again before 1881.

1871
CP: Paisley Low Church
Renfrew
Address: 69 Causeyside
Elizabeth Pollock age 43 wife born Paisley
John son age 16 bakers son born Greenock
Robert son age 14 bakers son born Paisley
Ellen dau age 14 bakers dau born Paisley
I'd like a look up please for possible John in 1861 and 1881. I hope the children help.

Regards,

Dave

But there is no trace of any John the baker in the Paisley area. The only likely family I can find kind of matching are a Jane and her children but Robert and John are transposed. Helen/Ellen is the right age. Now it is intrigung me.

This is the family I first found in 1861 going by the children. With the added Isabella I would say they are the right lot with wife Jane even tho he says he is a widower in 61. Better kill off Jane quickly. I checked on Scotlandspeople and Ellen's mum was Jane and father John a baker.

I have 4 possible for John b. 1825 - 1829 Paisley in 1841 after ruling out non-weavers.

Sarah died 1899 and I have no death for John:

1891 Scotland Census
Name: Sarah Polloclk
Age: 62
Estimated birth year: abt 1829
Relationship: Wife
Spouse's name : John
Gender: Female
Where born: Paisley, Renfrewshire
Registration Number: 573
Registration district: Paisley
Civil parish: Paisley Abbey
County: Renfrewshire
Address: 8 Abbey Street
ED: 84
Household schedule number: 42
Line: 25
Roll: CSSCT1891_192
Household Members: Name Age
John Pollock 66
Sarah Pollock 62
I don't know what parish of Paisley Sarah was born in but they married in Low Church.

John POLLOCK & Sarah GIFFORD
10 Aug 1850 Low Church, Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland
Husband Age at Marriage: 21
Wife Age at Marriage: 20

Census says 66 in 1891 or marriage says 21 in 1850. I think I'll go by the census.

Children:

John
Stephen * Sarah's father
James
Margaret * Sarah's mother
Peter
Sarah

Seems to indicate John's father is John.

Ruling out those that are not John leaves only one in FreeCEN:

Hello,

1891 Scotland Census
Name: Sarah Polloclk
Age: 62
Estimated birth year: abt 1829
Relationship: Wife
Spouse's name : John
Gender: Female
Where born: Paisley, Renfrewshire
Registration Number: 573
Registration district: Paisley
Civil parish: Paisley Abbey

Address: 8 Abbey Street

Household schedule number: 42

Household Members: Name Age
John Pollock 66
Sarah Pollock 62
Sarah died in 1899 and I don't know which of these his spouse John.

Death 1891 John POLLOCK Paisley, Renfrew b. 1829 +/-1

Death 1902 John POLLOCK Paisley, Renfrew b. 1829 +/-2

I'd like a look up for John in 1901 please. I hope there is something that will rule that one in or out.

Regards,

Dave

Your addition is a wee bit oot! He is 66 in the 1891 so he is born around 1825 so your search for 1829+/- 1 year leaves out a John Pollock who died i 1896 aged 72 573/00 0083

Now I'll go lookin the census but still can't copy and paste anything, any ideas how to fix it?

The other two in 1891 are a

John born 1826 shall weaver married to a Maggie
John 1827 carpet weaver a vistitor to a Renfrew househouse (name not area)

going by that the 1896 death might be the most likely. The 1902 one is born 1831 anyway.

Hello Barbara,

Thanks.

I didn't use the age in the most recent census. ;) Hard to know which record to believe, the most recent census or age at marriage.

Do we know what his occupation was?

I'll ask you about the copy and paste problem tomorrow.

Regards,

Dave

Yep but better to trawl with a wider net on SP and catch more little fishes or Pollocks in this case:D Unless it is a name like John Mcdonald! Only 6 Pollocks came up with a ten year range of birth.

I'll plitter about with it and try and fix it but might be beyond me.
