I'd like a look up please for that family in 1851. Perhaps they can't be found.

James Flockhart & Elizabeth Anderson
8 Nov 1847 Alloa, Clackmannan

Banns proclaimed on 5th and married on 8th - no occupation or status for James.

Do we have 2x James in Alloa? 1x James died 1850 in Alloa.

1851
Civil Parish: Alloa
Clackmannan
Address: Broad St
Elizabeth Flockhart 31 widow Grocer Abercorn Linlithgow

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

Several things not right. :biggrin:

Some trees have his death as 1850 (2nd Elizabeth a grocer and widow in same street in 1851) and other trees have his death in 1857.

One must have died before 1851 census:

There is an entry, an inventory, in the Wills & Testament section of Scotlands People for a James Flockheart, grocer from Alloa. A date is quoted of 4 June 1852.


The tree with 1857 death has his birth as Alloa but 1841 says the one I'm chasing was not born in county.

I say we have 2x James but that the one who married 2x Elizabeth was not born Alloa and died 1850 and merchant = grocer.

So there is one not connected to my tree who died in 1857.
 
Quote:
Marriage to Elizabeth Anderson
1847
8 Nov
Alloa, Clackmannanshire, Scotland, United Kingdom
James Flockhart and Elizabeth Anderson both of this parish recorded their names for Proclamation of banns on the 5th November and were married on the 8th. End Quote.
 
The tree with the 1857 death has no 1851 census.

The Bridge street one in 1851 is also older, with a different occupation. We need him in 1841. I had them all up in FreeCEN before.
 
Charles Batchen & Elizabeth Anderson
25 Aug 1851 Alloa, Clackmannan

I know we have been through the 4 marriages before but I received a bit of new info that made me return for another look at James.

Not sure why the 1852 date - perhaps it's an inventory and a list of creditors. It says 'grocer' so has to be the one who married 2x Elizabeth.

The tree has death of first Elizabeth as 1847 but last child born 1842 I'd say there is no death and that should read 'before 1847' ie. died before the marriage date.
 
Children:

John
James
Margaret
Andrew

The tree has parents as David Flockhart and Grizel Stewart.

So that does not fit naming pattern. The one who died 1857 may well have had parents David & Grizel but I'd say that does not fit the one who married 2x Elizabeth.


Another tree has Elizabeth K's parents as John KELTIE & Margaret HARVEY, which does fit better.

Most records have it as HERVEY.

John KELTIE & Margaret HERVEY
6 Feb 1807 Alloa, Clackmannan

John & Margaret also died before 1851. Well, not found in 1851:
