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.

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.

Dave
 
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.

Dave

Thanks a lot, Jim. :)

I have the death certificate now for Archibald.

Don't have a death for Elisabeth yet.

I used Ancestry before this year and they have a very good free search.

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.

Elizth Malcolm age 72 in Largs in 1891

also

Elizabeth Malcolm age 70 in Largs in 1891
 
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.

Search for a marriage 1835 -1841 in Scotland with spouse = malcolm or malcom or malcome and surname starting with 'ba' or 'be' and given name starting with 'e' no hits.
