Hello,

James COCKBURN & Christina BUTCHARD
4 Jun 1853 Low Church, Paisley, Renfrew
Husband Age at Marriage: 45
Wife Age at Marriage: 33

Thomas b. 1856 Paisley (Christina BUTCHARD)
Archibald b. 1859 Paisley (Christina BUTCHART)

I'd like a look up please for the family in 1861.

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello Dave,

This is the nearest I can get in 1861. There is no sign of Thomas, born 1856, but perhaps he died. The ages of the bride and groom are a bit out and I suppose there is a chance that Agnes is a daughter from a previous marriage.

Address: Back Land
Civil Parish and RD: Abbey Burgh
County: Renfrewshire

James Cockburn 61 (born Paisley, occupation, silk weaver)
Christina Cockburn 45 (born Campsie, Lanarkshire)
Agnes Cockburn 16 (born Glasgow)
George Cockburn 6 (born Paisley)
Archibald Cockburn 1 (born Paisley)

(Haven’t had any luck with your other requests of today.) :eek:

Hello Josie,

Thank you very much.

Well, it looked the most likely marriage for my Christina/Christian but age at death was so far out I turned my attention to the SMART marriage and age at death fits.

Now the born Campsie actually fits. :D

I have no doubt this is the baptism record for the one in my tree:

Christian Gib BUCHART c. 5 Aug 1821 Campsie, Stirling, Scotland
George BUCHART & Christian HANNA

However the birth is 16 Jun 1821 Arbroath, Angus. ??? EDIT: parents Robert & Isabel ***

Oh, these are two different Christina's. :rolleyes:

Perhaps the age is out and COCKBURN is the right one after all.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Josie,

Death 1887 Christina COCKBURN (BUTCHART) Paisley, Renfrew Age 60.

I think I was wrong to dismiss this one on basis of age at death.

Please see if you can find them in 1871 and 1881. Thanks.

I hope it continues to have pob as Campsie.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Josie,

After finding some more probable death records on SP I've decided the other two look ups were not for those in my tree, so SMART and ROBERTSON families have gone.

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello Josie,

I've returned to this one. I can't see a birth for George or the first marriage. A birth for an Agnes in Gorbals in 1846 but parents are David & Agnes.

I'm hoping it is my Christina/Christian.

Regards,

Dave

Dave,

I have a lot more on the family so I think it would be more appropriate to take our conversation off forum.
