Thanks Ellie.

Yes there was an earlier marriage but I had this one being in Barony:

Marriage 30/10/1831 LITSTER JAMES - MARGARET PATON/FR4307 622/ 160 407 Barony

Where is Mary aged 14 in 1851 in the 1841 census?

I can't find a baptism for James in Lanark 1807 - 1812.

I can't find a Litster & Carne marriage 1790 - 1812.

Something is not right. James is a spirit dealer so this should fit ...

1841
Piece: SCT1841/622 Place: Barony -Lanarkshire ED: 12
Civil Parish: Bridgeton Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 90 Page 3
Address: Dale St
Surname First name(s) *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
LITSTER James 30 Spirit Dealer Lanarkshire
LITSTER Margaret 30 Lanarkshire
LITSTER James 6mo Lanarkshire

... but I can't find a baptism for James junior.


I think the baptism for Mary in 1837 in Paisley to a James & Mary is a different family that can be found in Renfrew in 1841.
