Another go at this one. I can't find the them in 1851 in FreeCEN.

Piece: SCT1841/573 Place: Paisley -Renfrewshire Enumeration District: 14
Civil Parish: Paisley High Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 0 Page: 24
Address: 17 Castle St
Surname First name(s) *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
JACK Alexander M 45 Cotton Hand Loom Weaver Renfrewshire
JACK Isabella F 45 Renfrewshire
JACK Alexander M 14 Drawboy Renfrewshire
JACK John M 12 Drawboy Renfrewshire
JACK James M 10 Drawboy Renfrewshire
JACK Grahame M 8 Renfrewshire
JACK William M 6 Renfrewshire
LAIRD Alexander M Unk Drawboy Renfrewshire

William marries on 8 Aug 1861:

1861 Marriages in the Parish of High Church in the Burgh of Paisley
No. 73 1861 August Eighth 54 Wellmeadow Street Paisley After Banns according to the forms of the Congregationalists
[signed] William Jack Grocer Bachelor - 26 - 33 George Street Paisley - Alexander Jack Weaver (deceased) Isabella Jack M.S. Graham (deceased)
[signed] Sarah Blackley Mill Worker Spinster - 21 - 57 Broomlands Street Paisley - John Blackley Mason Isabella Blackley M.S. McGuire
[signed] John H. Lochore ? Minister of the Tabernach, Paisley
[signed] Robert Young, Witness, [signed] Mary Blackley, Witness
1861 August 13th ? at Paisley John Mitchyers ? Assistant Registrar

There is a death that fits for Alexander in 1860. I can't find a death for Isabella.

I'd like a look up please for Alexander in 1851 and William in 1851 and 1861 assuming both are in Renfrew or Lanark.
