Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

Not sure about that one with pob and occupation both different.

Also possible Charles had died although I can't find a death 1861-1871.

I can't find a 2nd one in 1851. Can only find one marriage:

Chas. Shedden
Scotland, Marriages, 1561-1910
marriage: 1 Jan 1866 Dalkeith,​Midlothian
spouse: Madlena Carson

Looking at the family they were grocers in 1851 and coal miners in 1861 so it's looking as though that has to be Charles in 1871. I'll not worry about the change of occupation.

Death 1908 Charles SHEDDEN Canongate, Midlothian age 71
