Thanks, Dave..

Looks as though both of Archibald Jr. parents may have died before he married, I can't see any remarriages?

Geoff
 
Yes, parents may have died before 1851 even.

Still thought junior could be found in 1851.

Dave
 
Thanks Geoff.

Date and location are ok but extracted marriage has Andrew. So an error somewhere.

Only two daughters and naming pattern fits ok.

Two children in 1881 are of 2nd marriage.
