Death 1907 Janet MALCOLM Irvine, Ayr Age 77

Death 1913 Jane MALCOLM Largs, Ayr Age 88

No idea if they are spinsters or married or widows reverting to maiden name.

I'd like a look up please for those two in 1901, assuming either one could be Jane/Jean/Janet in census.

Thanks,

Dave

Not finding a full match on census so far Dave, nor one of the deaths but here's the ref for one death giving other names Muir and Clark to compare with your records

1907 MALCOLM JANET MUIR CLARK F 77 IRVINE /AYR 595/00 0223

Thanks a lot Woody. :)

You need not worry about those census now. I can tell from the other names which one fits and which one does not so neither is the death of one I was looking for.

I have a Janet MALCOLM born abt 1822 Largs and have this so was looking for a death:

1891
Name: Janet Malcolm
Event Type: Census
Event Date: 1891
Gender: Female
Age: 69
Birthplace: Ayrshire
Registration District: Largs
County: Ayrshire
Birth Year (Estimated): 1822


That household for 1891 would be handy thanks.

CARMICHAEL, Bella Daughter Single 16 Govan, Lanarkshire
MALCOLM, Janet Sister Widow 73 Largs, Ayrshire

Thanks Woody.

That seems to be the one.

Looks as though this is the death for William:

Death 1894 MALCOLM William Govan, Lanark Age 68


Some of this ended up in another topic as well.

Thanks Woody. :)

This one Geoff found had me puzzled:

1901
Reg No: 507
Registration District: Campbeltown
Civil Parish: Campbeltown
Town: Campbeltown
County: Argyll
ED: 16
Roll: CSSCT1901_177 Page 8
Address: 25 Glebe St
Peter Carmichael Head 62 Foreman baker Largs
Jeanie Carmichael Wife 59 Renfrfew
Bella Carmichael dau 16 Govan
Janet MacErloss Sister 73 Largs

Sister is a puzzle too.


Here is that mysterious niece wrongly given the family name MALCOLM in census:

1901
Reg No: 507
Registration District: Campbeltown
Civil Parish: Campbeltown
Town: Campbeltown
County: Argyll
ED: 14
Roll: CSSCT1901_177 Page 8
Address: 2 Cross St
Ellen Speirs Head 66 Greengrocer-shopkeeker
Janet Carmichael 22 General Serv (domestic) Paisley

You have found something with a different transcription of the 1901 that suggests Peter's spouse was a MALCOLM ???


EDIT: Ignore that - I need some sleep. It's married name = spouse of William.

See my post #8 Dave - it's a match for Geoff's except for the sister - different transcription?
DOH - IGNORE THAT - I'm blaming the clocks going back - God help me if I had jetlag!!!

Yes, thanks, I'm awake to that now. Janet is Peter's older sister.

Actually, I'll let you catch up and I'll catch some sleep. :)

Thanks Woody.

It seems daughter Janet was given the middle name Malcolm because William and spouse Janet nee Carmichael were looking after some of Peter & Jean's children from 1861 or even earlier.

This branch of my tree seems ok now so I'll move on to another MALCOLM puzzle. :biggrin:
