I don't think you have the right Alexander - birthplace is wrong, surname is wrong, occupation is wrong, the only thing which looks about right is his age.

Do you have a marriage to an Isabella between 1858 and 1861?

The Alexander Haston who died Dalmeny 1869 was baptised 29 October 1797 in Linlithgow to Alexander Haston and Ann Wallace

Linlithgow, West Lothian, is 30 miles away from Humbie, East Lothian (Haddingtonshire)

Unfortunately I cannot find a baptism for Alexander nor can I see him in the 1861 Census.

Ok, let's start again using everything in post #4.

No baptism 1818 - 1824 for a Henry Hastings on SP.

No marriage 1800 - 1824 that fits for Henry's parents if Alexander and ? Annan/Annand.

Different tack.

Marriage 31/08/1794 HASTON ALEXANDER - ANN WALLACE/FR551 665/ 20 322 Dalmeny

29/10/1797 HASTON ALEXANDER - ALEXANDER HASTON/ANN WALLACE FR1680 M 668/ 40 555 Linlithgow

Death 1869 HASTON ALEXANDER 72 WALLACE 665/ 2 Dalmeny

That Alexander in census ? One found in Dysart Fife in 1841 and that's all.

Don't know if any of this will help but I have done a search in the Dalmeny area for baptisms surname starting Hast* and father Alexander and have found the following. Note Abercorn is about 4 miles from Dalmeny.

Alexander and Ann Wallace
1794 Janet Hasten Dalmeny
1799 John Hasten Abercorn
1802 Ann Haston Abercorn
1804 Alison Hastings Abercorn
1806 Henry Hastings Abercorn
1808 Joseph Hasting Dalmeny
1811 James Hasting Dalmeny
1814 Jean Hasting Dalmeny

Alexander and Janet Smith
1819 Henry Haston Dalmeny - the only child from the 1841 Census that I can find a baptism for.

Alexander and Isabel Kay
1833 Isabella Hastings Abercorn
1835 George Hasting Abercorn
1838 Ann Hastings Abercorn
1842 Jane Kay Hastings Abercorn

Thanks emeltee.

I agree the 1861 census in post #1 does not fit but I did think there was some sort of name change going on.
