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

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much. Yes a carter. :)

I'm not sure about Mary after 1861.

Please see if you can find them in 1881 at 30 St James st Paisley. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

I'm not sure if she married or died by 1871. One possibility to look at:

Spouse: THOMSON STEWART

Marriage: 8 NOV 1867 High Church, Paisley, Renfrew

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thanks. Curious.

The extracted record has spouse as:

Ann GILCHRIST

Marriage: 8 Nov 1867 High Church, Paisley, Renfrew

So a second marriage to an Agnes (can't find) or two Thomsons or Ann is Agnes. ???

I'd say Ardice is supposed to be Airdrie which is not far from Old / New Monkland.

Please try for Ann / Agnes for 1881. Thanks

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thanks. It might yet help. Her age certainly fits.

I can't see an alternative at the moment except that Ann is down as Agnes but I might be proved wrong. :D

Regards,

Dave
