Must be an error in my tree somewhere.

re the previous post - John the son of Isaac. But is Isaac the son of John the gardener in 1841.

In the 1861 census there is no son Isaac born abt 1852.

Thanks emeltee.

Thanks Barbara.

I'm not sure how I ended up with John and Elisabeth in that 1841 census in my tree.

I don't have Isaac in 1861.

Arrival of Isaac senior?

Passenger arrivals index, 1898 - 1972
Ferrier Isaac 27 Jul 1912 Fremantle AJANA Avonmouth 9870282

Something is wrong with that list in the previous post. John born 1887 ? And only one Isaac.

Death 1911 FERRIER CATHERINE [ELDER] 58 - Penicuik 697/ 35

Isaac unlikely to have left Scotland before Catherine's death.
