Hello,

I've been trying to find possible siblings of William KERR b. abt 1812 Rutherglen (Age 25 in 1841). I can't find William's death so I don't have his parents.

1841
Piece: SCT1841/654 Place: Rutherglen -Lanarkshire Enumeration District: 4
Civil Parish: Rutherglen Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 4 Page: 11
Address: Pant Head
Surname First name(s) *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
KERR James M 20 Cotton Hand Loom Weaver Lanarkshire
Page: 4/12
KERR Merrion F 18 Lanarkshire
KERR Robert M 15 Works At Printfield Lanarkshire
KERR Mary F 13 Lanarkshire
KERR Thomas M 10 Lanarkshire
James ROSS & Marian KERR
Marriage: 3 Jun 1842 Rutherglen, Lanark

1851
Piece: SCT1851/654 Place: Rutherglen -Lanarkshire Enumeration District: 19
Civil Parish: Rutherglen Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 630 Page: 3 Schedule: 9
Address: 21 Main Street
Surname First name(s) Rel Status *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
ROSS James Head M M 32 Labourer In A Printworks Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
ROSS Miren Wife U F 29 Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
ROSS Thomas Son U M 6 Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
ROSS Robert Son U M 2 Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
MURRAY Janet Niece U F 7 Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
KERR Robert Lodger U M 27 Calico Printer Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
KERR Thomas Lodger U M 21 Stone Mason Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
KERR James Lodger U M 22 Hand Loom Weaver Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
Janet MURRAY b. 27 Feb 1845 Rutherglen, Lanark
- parents Alexander MURRAY & Elizabeth KERR - private IGI

Marriage 30 Apr 1830 Barony, Lanark

That would make Elizabeth about the same age as William assuming they are siblings.

Elizabeth KERR b. 3 May 1809 Rutherglen, Lanark
- parents Robert KERR & Jean WILLIAMSON - private IGI

William KERR b. 17 Dec 1811 c. 29 Dec 1811 Rutherglen, Lanark
- parents Robert KERR & Jean WILLIAMSON - private IGI

Also entries for 1812. Hmmmmm... :) Are they guessing. ???

29/12/1811 KERR WILLIAM ROBERT KERR/JEAN WILLIAMSON FR209 RUTHERGLEN GLASGOW CITY CITY/LANARK 654/00 0010 0380

I'm wondering who should be traced. I could be barking up the wrong tree. :D

Regards,

Dave
