No baptism found for Agnes, daughter of Robert & Agnes, or for any siblings.

Seems to be only 3x Robert old enough in 1841 in Renfrew and Lanark.

The Agnes who died in 1855 aged 57 was the daughter of Robert Gilmour Flax Dresser (Deceased) Agnes Gilmour Maiden Name Callender (Deceased) and she married Porterfield Malcolm.

There is no flax dresser in 1841 on FreeCEN. That site found only two of the three in post #2. One a coal miner and the other ind.

Thanks Geoff.

The death in post#1 is part of the large image that makes up the special 1855 records with the extra details.

Porterfield was the informant.

The naming pattern for the children only half fits. It points to both fathers being Robert. Porterfield's father was Robert.
No help re the mothers as daughters were Margaret and Mary so not Agnes and Jean as you would expect.

Agnes had a brother Robert who was with them on Census night in 1861. He was on the 1861 census at the same residence as them.
