William not found in 1861. No death for William 1855 - 1856 Lanark.

In 1841 in Ayrshire Agnes was listed as not born in county so Largs may be wrong in 1851.

I'd like a look up please for Agnes in 1861 and 1871.

James Struthers
marriage: 18 February 1856 Tradeston,Glasgow,Lanark,Scotland
spouse: Agnes Wright


parents Peter WRIGHT & Elizabeth SKULL... ? Can't find that marriage or baptism for Agnes.

I'm now out of credits.

Agnes & William married in Largs, so was it her home parish?

I can't find a tree for Agnes.

Thanks.

Yes. Not sure that the informant got the names right.

I can only see the marriage in Largs. Was expecting to also find it in Dumfries perhaps with a date a month or so different.

Thanks Geoff.

If we assume we don't know her parents we can say that there is an Agnes in 1841 census in Torthorwald and a marriage in 1840 in Largs for one who also shows later with birthplace as Torthorwald - hence my question do we have 2x Agnes born abt 1816 Torthorwald.


One tree has Mary Dean KING in Wales in 1891. Don't know if that is correct.

Doubt it unless she is a superwoman!

1891
Reg No: 627
RD: Cambuslang
Civil Parish: Cambuslang
County: Lanarkshire
Address: Bushyhill
ED: 3; Page: 20; Line: 19; Roll: CSSCT1891_229

Robert King 58 [b. Kilbarton, Renf., Labourer (Boat Yard)]
Mary D M King 50 [wife, b. Lay, Ayrshire]
Rosina McK King 33 [dau, b. Greenock, Renfrewshire]
Malcolm S King 19 [son, do, Steelwork Labourer]
Thomas G King 17 [son, b. Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, Assistant Grocer]
Jane M King 14 [dau, Cambuslang, Lanarkshire
Agnes S King 9 [dau, do]
Archibald Malcolm 21 [cousin, b. Paisley, Pit Labourer]
Hugh S Malcolm 5 [cousin's son]

I wonder if that is one of the confusing Archibald's from another thread?

Thanks Geoff.

Very interesting 1891 census. :biggrin:

The work on the MALCOLMs will never end.

I can't see how Archibald can be a cousin. William's brothers:

James in 1861 census then of to NZ
Robert not found after 1841 census
Archibald not found after 1841 census
Alexander not found after 1851 census

I can't find a baptism for Archibald abt 1870 or Hugh in FS.

I can find a tree with either of them.

I'd like a look up please for the King family in 1881 and 1901.

I've put the 1901 first because the dates and some names are out. This must be them because of the Archibald/Hugh link!

1901
Reg No: 627
RD: Cambuslang
Civil Parish: Cambuslang
County: Lanarkshire
Address: Morriston Bldgs Main Street
ED: 15; Page: 47; Line: 9; Roll: CSSCT1901_253

Mrs. Malcolm King 39 [Head, b. Lamas, Ayrshire. Housekeeper]
Elizabeth Campbell 14 [Boarder]
Mr. A Graham 24 [Dau, b. Cambuslang. (Spouse: Andrew Graham. Parents: Malcolm King)]
Andrew Graham 33 [Son-in-law, b. Coatbridge, Grocer's Carter]
Archibald Malcolm 40 [Boarder, b. Paisley, Labourer Coal Pit]
Hugh Malcolm 15 [Boarder, b. Paisley, Labourer Coal Pit]
James Mulholland 35 [Boarder]

So, Archibald has gained 10y and age dif. between him and Hugh looks better and he is traceable now [parents possibly Archibald M Sr. and Isabella Holms].

Mr A Graham is probably Jane!

And Mrs Malcom King must be Mary Dean, age out should be nearer 60y.

Geoff

Edit: Malcolm King was married to a Jemima by 1901
