Thanks for looking. At the moment I have no idea how that later George might fit.
I was looking for an explanation for the different places of birth for the four daughters. I've not found George in 1841 and I have no idea re his occupation. He could have been a journeyman stonemason or a blacksmith or he could have been in the army. I suppose there is a way of ruling that out by trying to trace the movements of all regiments stationed in Scotland 1815-1835. I can't find the marriage and have no idea when George was born. Just one of many problem spots in my tree.
I have no record of any male BUCHART/BUTCHART/BUTCHARDs in my tree after 1834. Christina married in 1853 and Jean in 1843 but I have not found either in 1841. I have not found a definite death for any of the daughters, or for George or his spouse.
I think I'll get a copy of the birth/baptism record for one of the daughters.
EDIT: I have now found the marriage:
20 Aug 1820 Denny, Stirling
George BUTCHER & Christian HANNA
This is the baptism record:
Christian Gib BUCHART c. 5 Aug 1821 Campsie, Stirling
George BUCHART & Christian HANNA
EDIT: I now have a copy of Christian's baptism record and it says George was a weaver.
George Butchart & Christian Hanna were my husband's gg grandparents. George had various jobs in his life, weaver, boiler fireman, shawl seller. He had been in 71st Foot (Highland Light Infantry) seeing action at Nivelle, Nive, Orthes & Toulouse.
I still don't know why he travelled around so much, maybe his time in the army made him restless. He was in the 1841 census but as often his name was written as George Butcher in Highland Lane Paisley (Abbey)
He also appeared that year in the Poor Law records:
Age 45, address Highland Lane, married in 1820, wife died in 1839. He was a fireman (probably keeping boilers or furnaces stoked) with Craig & Donald, at that time Engineers, Millwrights and Machine Makers at 8 Renfrew Street.
Born Glasgow. 7 years in Paisley, since 1834.
He could read, he attended the Church of Scotland, he had been chargeable before to Abbey Parish for I/- (probably per w
His parents were dead.
There was one child at home, Janet, 9 years. Children living elsewhere were: Christine aged 19, Jean aged 16 and Elizabeth aged 13, all house servants in Glasgow.
He had applied for relief because he had been bedrid for a month past, when employed he earned 12/- weekly.
Received an injury to his hand 11 weeks ago, admitted to Royal Infirmary (Glasgow) 3 weeks afterwards and was dismissed 3 weeks afterwards. Has been at home since and his thumb was cut off 6 weeks ago since which the rose has attacked his arm and his whole body is in a state of disease and of great exhaustion. (We take 'the rose' to be the flush of rising infection.)
October 1841: the petitioner has been in the Infirmary and his general health is greatly impaired. He still however wants the power of his left hand. His friends have advised him to begin to sell shawls and to obtain a license for that end. He thinks he might be able to do for himself in this way as he was in that way 2 years before with Mr Haiden (John Haiden & Co, Shawl Manufacturers, 9 Marshall's Lane). He requires a licence which will cost 20/- per quarter or 80/- a year. He wishes one quarter paid and his clothes taken out of pawn, which comes to 23/-.
As far as I can tell he died later in the year.
