William Houston b. 20 Sep 1846 High Church, Paisley, Renfrew
John Houston & Sarah Nicol Angel

The extracted record says it's a birth not a baptism but it also lists place of birth as High Church not just Paisley so I'm wondering if the date is in fact a baptism date.


William Houston & Jane Whyte
Marriage 30 April 1873 High Church Paisley, Renfrew

John Houston b. 12 Feb 1874 Bridgeton, Lanark
William Houston & Jane Whyte

1881
Registration District: Bridgeton
Civil Parish: Glasgow Barony
County: Lanarkshire
No address
Wm HOUSTON Head 35 Boot Maker Paisley, Renfrewshire
Jane HOUSTON Wife 35 Paisley, Renfrewshire
John HOUSTON son 7 Glasgow, Lanarkshire

I'd like a look up please for the family in 1891 and 1901.

Thanks,

Dave

County: Renfrewshire
ED:

I can't find a birth/baptism that fits for daughter Jan/Jane/Jean/ ...

Also, not sure where Jane Whyte was born.

William may have died by 1901 but there are several possible deaths so still looking for the family in 1891.

Thanks,

Dave

The only deaths that show are in Lanark. Matthew is not a common name so one of 1901 and one of these is probably mine.

Not sure about marriage to Jane Whyte as there is a marriage 4 June 1867 Paisley High Renfrewshire for a William Houston to a Elizabeth Taylor (b 1844 – died 20 Sept 1867) - ok so he married Jane after Elizabeth....
