Piece 559
Registration District:
Civil Parish: Abbey (Paisley)
County: Renfrewshire
Roll: CSSCT1861_ Page 2
ED: 11
Schedule: 11
Address: 3 Gauze St

JOHNSTONE Janet Grndau U 22 Shawl Sewer RFW Paisley
YOUNG Robert Nephew U 19 Reed Maker RFW Paisley

No baptism found for Robert, son of Collin & Margaret. Probably a grand nephew.

I've not proved the connection to Johnstone. Perhaps Janet's maiden name was Young.

Thanks Emeltee.

Don't know what I did wrong the other day when I failed to find that marriage on SP.

I can't find a death for Colin.

I think the marriage took place at Castlehead, Paisley. (What looks like the tail of a letter y is the P in Paisley.)
Christina was a Power Loom Weaver.
The witnesses are Robert Maxwell and Agnes Dixon and the Assistant Registrar is George Hallam.

Shawl weaver sounds reasonable but I cannot work out the word in brackets, possibly begins and ends with T and I think it's 65 Arral Street but not 100% certain

I looked for variations to Shawl weaver.

Seeker of the Dead
During the Plague, old women were employed to diagnose the Plague from the buboes and count the dead to enable the compilation of Bills of Mortality, for which they were paid from 3 to 4 pence per corpse. Risky job!
