That may not be the correct Archibald, Dave. This looks to be the rest of the census, he is a Marine Stoker, not a tailor.

Address: 3 Lapicide Pl

Thanks Geoff.

I'm not sure 1871 says 'tailor' because 'tailer' could be 'sailer/sailor' too.

I can't see a death before 1881 that fits that's way I expected to find him in 1881.

It's also possible he remarried between 1876 and 1881. Leith fits.

Thanks Geoff.

Ok, tailor but I'm still not sure he was born in Alloa. Cecilia's family was living there in 1861 so I think that explains why the marriage was in Alloa, not because it was his home parish.


Great weather and lots of interesting things to see such as the Deep Space Network Station at Tidbinbilla. I'll get around to posting a few pics over the next week or so.
