Cannot find an Archibald Low baptism in Hampshire but there is one in Glasgow

Archibald Low 22 October 1793 John Low/Margaret Clerk

John Low married Margaret Clerk in Glasgow 28 October 1792

Archibald Low died 24 March 1863 and Probate on his Estate (less than £6,000) to widow Elizabeth. Buried Portsea 28 March 1863
Disregard that baptism as the child must have died young. There is another baptism for another Archibald Low in Glasgow in 1804 with parents John Low and Margaret Clerk. This particular Archibald died aged 19 in 1823 of Consumption.

Back to the drawing board!
