Hello,
1841
Piece: SCT1841/602 Place: Largs -Ayrshire Enumeration District: 4
Civil Parish: Largs Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: Largs
Folio: 3 Page: 15
Address: Wilson Street
Surname First name(s) *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
MALCOLM Archibald M 22 Hand Loom Weaver Ayrshire
MALCOLM Elizabeth F 20 Winder Ireland
MALCOLM Archibald M 10m Ayrshire
1861
Civil Parish: Largs
County: Ayrshire
Address: Gateside Street, Largs
MALCOLM, Archibald Head Married M 42 1819 Cotton Weaver Largs, Ayrshire
MALCOLM, Elizabeth Wife Married F 41 1820 Cotton Weaver Wife Ireland
MALCOLM, Archibald Son Unmarried M 20 1841 Cotton Weaver Largs, Ayrshire
MALCOLM, Alexander Son Unmarried M 15 1846 Cotton Weaver Largs, Ayrshire
MALCOLM, Robert Son M 13 1848 Tinsmith Ap Largs, Ayrshire
MALCOLM, Ann Daughter F 10 1851 Scholar Largs, Ayrshire
MALCOLM, Rabecca Daughter F 6 1855 Scholar Largs, Ayrshire
MALCOLM, James Son M 3 1858 Largs, Ayrshire
I'd like a look up for the family in 1851 please.

FreeCEN says it has 100% coverage of Ayrshire in 1851 but I can't find the right family. I keep finding families outside Largs.

Perhaps I'm wrong in thinking that stayed in Largs. Not Paisley or Glasgow.

Dave

Thanks Jim. :)

I can now see why my look up failed. Archabald and Elesabath. I searched for both of them as MALCOLM, MALCOM, MALCOME in Ayr and Renfrew and Lanark.

Archibald/Archabald died in August 1881 well after the census so I'd like a look up please for the family in 1871 and 1881.

Thanks.

Many thanks for that tip. :)

I spend my money on copies of certificates from ScotlandsPeople or GRO or the various States in Australia rather than a subscription to a site.

I'm turning my attention to Elizabeth spouse of Archibald.

Two deaths in Largs 1891 - 1920 for a female MALCOLM with given name starting with 'e' and born 1820 +/- 1 year.

Still two hits if the name is Elizabeth.

No hits using MALCOM or MALCOME.

1 1893 MALCOLM ELIZABETH Other Surname BELLENGER F 74 LARGS (AYR)/AYR 602/00 0058
2 1900 MALCOLM ELIZABETH Other Surname WYLIE F 79 LARGS (AYR)/AYR 602/01 0038


Archibald's death certificate has the name as Barranger.
