James Houston
birth: 27 Apr 1869 Calton, Glasgow, Lanark
father: John Houston
mother: Jane Blackley

Sarah Houston
birth: 15 Feb 1871 Calton, Glasgow, Lanark
father: John Houston
mother: Jane Blackley

Name: Sarah Houston
Event Type: Census
Event Date: 1871
Gender: Female
Age: 0
Birthplace: Lanarkshire
Registration District: Calton
County: Lanarkshire
Birth Year (Estimated): 1871

Something does not fit. :rolleyes:

Sarah can't be in Calton and Paisley in 1871 census so what have I missed?

I'd like a look up please for the family in Calton 1871 and in 1881.

Thanks,

Dave

Ok. Thanks. It's not Paisley, Renfrew.

Probably not this one:

Jane Blakey
birth: 4 February 1839
christening: 9 May 1841 Carnwath, Lanarkshire
father: Robert Blakey
mother: Elizabeth Macgillavry

No others in FS.

No idea Geoff.

I thought in the BLACKLEY topic on Scotland board that I had found James and Sarah the two grandchildren but it seems they are not the two HOUSTONs. I have nothing more than what is in this topic.

I'd just like to be very sure this Jane is not one of mine.

I have no Jane/Janet/Jean BLACKLEY in my tree yet.

I have James and Sarah in 1871:

1871
Civil Parish: Paisley High Church
County: Renfrew
Address: 57 Broomlands Street
Francelia B?? 57, born Ireland [Isabella]
Mary G 34, Mill Weaver born Paisley [Ireland]
--- who is this ? probably Isabella ?
Ann Bechett 24 daughter Paisley
Bechett 11 granddaughter England [Isabella]
Farrie Bechett 8 granddaughter England [Jessie]
James Bechett 3 grandson Glasgow ??
Sarah Bechett 1 granddaughter Glasgow ??


Family name can't be HOUSTON.

I can't see how it can be BLACKLEY.

The next step would be to get a copy of the image for that one.
