Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. The ages for Archibald & Alexander are way off in 1891 census. Alexander in 1861, 1871 & 1881 is 26, 36, 46 all born Largs.

Well, what a surprise. :D 2nd marriage.

His first spouse Jane (nee BARBOUR) died 18 Aug 1889 Greenock, Renfrew.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

A revisit. :)

1841
Address: Nelson Street, Largs
Alexander Malcom 29, weaver
Anne Malcom 30, b. Scotland
Archibald Malcom 6
Jane Malcom 4
Rebecca Malcom 2
Anne Malcom 5 mo
1881 Scotland census
C.P: Largs
County: Ayrshire
CRAWFORD Jane, head 1826 age 55 Grocer Paisley, Renfrew
CRAWFORD Joseph, son 1861 age 20 Baker Largs, Ayrshire
CRAWFORD James, son 1863 age 18 Draper Largs, Ayrshire
CRAWFORD Jane, daur 1865 age 16 Scholar Largs, Ayrshire
CRAWFORD Mary, daur 1870 age 11 Scholar Largs, Ayrshire
BAILLIE Alex, boarder 1809 age 72 Cotton Weaver (Unemploy) Paisley, Renfrew
MALCOHM Alex, boarder 1812 age 69 Cotton Weaver Largs, Ayrshire
PRIESTLY William, boarder 1843 age 38 House Painter Ayr
Alexander died 19 Apr 1892 Largs, Ayr. All I can add about spouse Anne [ nee COCHRAN(E) ] is that she died before 16 Jun 1863. I don't think daughter Anne will be with them at all after 1841. We just did son Archibald but I don't have him in 1851. I don't know what happened to daughters Jane and Rebecca.

Please see if you can find Alexander in any of the missing years. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Sorry about that. Don't know why it was not in the database. I keep the census listings in the database and in text files on a different hard disk.

I am 100% sure I don't have Alexander age about 79 in the 1891 census. :)

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Archibald sen. spouse Rebecca (nee WILEY) died between 1851 & 1861 then. Looks as though I need more credits on SP. :rolleyes:

Archibald MALCOME Spouse: Rebecca WYLLIE
Marriage: 21 Dec 1807 St. Quivox And Newton, Ayr, Scotland

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I have Alexander's death as 19 Apr 1892 Largs, Ayr but not confirmed by purchase from SP.

I'm sure I don't have Alexander, age about 79, in the 1891 census, however it seems he can't be found.

I'll gather a few more look ups to make it worth my while getting more credits on SP.

These two extracted records on IGI:

James RIDDLE Spouse: Rebecca MALCOLM
Marriage: 12 Aug 1859 Largs, Ayr, Scotland

Alexander RIDDEL b. 27 Dec 1859 Largs, Ayr, Scotland
James RIDDEL & Rebecca MALCOM

I don't know about Jane/Jean yet. :2fun: There are only 7 marriages for a Jean/Jane MALCOLM in Ayr between 1853 & 1863. The two most likely:

Jane MALCOLM Spouse: William ANDREW
Marriage: 30 May 1858 St. Quivox And Newton, Ayr, Scotland

Jane MALCOM Spouse: JAMES ROY MCGILLIVRAY
Marriage: 4 Feb 1856 West Kilbride, Ayr, Scotland

West Kilbride is not that far from Largs. The others in Ayr and Irvine are probably too far away as is St Quivox, except that Jane's grandparents married in St Quivox even though they were from Largs and their children were born in Largs.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Age is out and so is place of birth but occupation and location fit. There is an Alexander MALCOM born in 1795 in Dunlop, Ayr and one born in 1786 in West Kilbride not far from Largs.

Could you check the 1881 census for an address thanks. It's not here:

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. So I wasn't missing anything. :D

One of the other two Alexander MALCOMs is a fisherman married to Ann living in West Kilbride next door to a William MALCOM also a fisherman. Can't find the other in 1841.

Jane MALCOLM Spouse: William ANDREW

Jane MALCOM Spouse: JAMES ROY MCGILLIVRAY

Please see if you can find these two couples in 1861 or 1871. I'm hoping to tell by address which one is worth spending money on. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking for Jane.

I've managed to go back one more generation thanks to the first daughter named after her grandmother, Jean Porterfield who married a Robert MALCOLM. I can't find the marriage or find either Robert or Jean in 1841. Their grand daughter is the only one in IGI:

c. 26 Nov 1815 Largs, Ayrshire, Scotland
Archibald MALCOM & Rebecca WYLIE

Alexander born abt 1811 was the first born. Archibald born abt 1786 is the only child I have so far for Robert & Jean.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

There is a death in Largs for a Jean MALCOLM on 30 Jul 1853 which would fit the census.

Also a death in Largs for a Robert MALCOLM on 27 Dec 1839.

Regards,

Dave
