Thanks Geoff.

Don't know yet if that's the one in my tree who was a coal miner in 1851.

This is not the one in my tree:

Alexander Armstrong
Christening Date 8 Sep 1833
Christening Place GORBALS,LANARK
Birth Date 31 Aug 1833
Father's Name William Armstrong
Mother's Name Anne Jarvie


There seems to be only the one Alexander born abt 1834 in all census to 1891.

There should be 2x in 1851 if the one in my tree died 1851 - 1861.

Dave

We have no marriage but we have the maiden name:

William Armstrong
Birth Date 29 May 1860
Birthplace BATHGATE,WEST LOTHIAN
Father's Name Alexander Armstrong
Mother's Name Janet Sneddon

But the problem with naming pattern Richard and William but not a George.

Probably means my Alexander died 1851 - 1861.

1861 Iron miner household for names of children thanks Geoff.

Probably the same family:

William Armstrong
Event Type Census
Event Date 1871
Gender Male
Age 38
Birthplace Lanarkshire
Registration District New Kilpatrick
County Dunbartonshire

If there is no son George within the first three then I'll rule that one out as well.

Thanks Geoff.

Barony fits and 1st son George and 2nd daughter Margaret fits.

Possibly this one:

William Armstrong & Elizabeth Muir
3 Dec 1854 Gorbals, Lanark


??
Elizabeth Muir
Christening Date 19 Aug 1838
Christening Place , OLD MONKLAND, LANARK
Birth Date 16 Jul 1838
Father's Name William Muir
Mother's Name Isabella Hutchison

??
Elizabeth Muir
Christening Date 29 Aug 1837
Christening Place , DOUGLAS, LANARK
Birth Date 20 Aug 1837
Father's Name William Muir
Mother's Name Isabella Greenshields

There are others but not with parents who would fit the naming pattern.
