Hello,

1851
Piece: SCT1851/646 Place: Govan -Lanarkshire Enumeration District: 6
Civil Parish: Govan Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: Fireworks
Folio: 626 Page: 13 Schedule: 44
Address: Fireworks, Garden Square
Surname First name(s) Rel Status *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
ARMSTRONG George Head M M 49 Coalminer Lanarkshire - Glasgow
ARMSTRONG Margaret Wife M F 47 Lanarkshire - Shotts
ARMSTRONG Mary Dau U F 21 Dyer Lanarkshire - Glasgow
ARMSTRONG William Son U M 18 Coalminer Lanarkshire - Glasgow

ARMSTRONG Alexander Son U M 15 Coalminer Lanarkshire - Glasgow

Trying to find this family in 1841 but having no luck. I would not rely on the details for George. He may even have been born in Ireland. Lots of ARMSTRONGs in Lanark born in Ireland.

Regards,

Dave

Hello,

Daughters:

Janet b. 19 Jan 1826 c. 26 Feb 1826 Barony, Lanark, Scotland

Helen b. 18 Jul 1841 c. 3 Oct 1841 Cathcart, Renfrew, Scotland


Therefore:

1841
Piece: SCT1841/560 Place: Cathcart -Renfrewshire Enumeration District: 4
Civil Parish: Cathcart Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 4 Page: 4
Address: Cross Hill Village
Surname First name(s) *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
ARMSTRONG George M 40 Coal Miner Ireland
ARMSTRONG Margret F 35 Outside Census County (1841)
ARMSTRONG Jannet F 15 Outside Census County (1841)
ARMSTRONG Alexr M 6 Outside Census County (1841)

So the question now becomes: Where are Mary and William in 1841?

Regards,

Dave

Hello Dave,

Yes, thanks. I believe so but minus two children.

As a possible help if Mary and William are with relatives in 1841 then related family names are:

McLUCKIE / McLUCKY
MALCOLM / MALCOME
COCHRAN / COCHRANE
KERR

Thanks.

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello,

This looks like Margaret's death:

Death 1866 Margaret ARMSTRONG (McLUCKIE) b. 1803 +/-1 Govan, Lanark

Spouse George was either born in Ireland or in Glasgow. ???

I've had no luck yet finding Mary 11 and William 8 in 1841. I would expect them to be in school and possibly with relatives.

Regards,

Dave
