Hello,

1861
Civil Parish: Paisley High Church
County: Renfrewshire
Address: 80 Canal St
William GILCHRIST head b. abt 1826 age 35 Carder Paisley, Renfrewshire
Agnes GILCHRIST wife b. 1832 age 29 Paisley, Renfrewshire
Mary GILCHRIST b. abt 1851 age 10 Andrie, Lanarkshire
Elizabeth GILCHRIST b. 1853 age 8 Paisley, Renfrewshire
I think it more likely William was a labourer / carter and not carder (woollen).

I think Mary was probably born in New Monkland, Lanark.

2 more children:

Janet b. abt 1865 Paisley
Jane b. abt 1867 Paisley

William & Agnes (nee GARDINER / GARDNER) both died after 1891.

Variations include GILCHRIEST.

I'd like a look up for the family in 1871 please.

Regards,

Dave
