Thanks Peter.

Strange one this. No sign of Jean or Jane as it is Janet and unmarried in all census and all in Largs and no sign in 1901.

Ages in census 18, 27, 38, 48, 59, 69

A few variations of the name in the census - MALCOM(E) but that is common with this family.

Looking for a Janet Malcolm (variations) born Largs 1820-1823 there are only two in 1841 and I can account for both in my tree.


Margaret nee Shearer died before 1841 so no death certificate to check her parents.

Naming pattern for the children of Mary and Margaret point to parents of both being William & Margaret but that does not help.

Death of the other Janet.
