James and William both married a Margaret.

The Margaret and family in 1841 is William's.

William without any of his family is with his brother James and family in 1861.

This is not a main line.

James KELTIE & Cecilia MASTERTON
4 Sep 1835 Torryburn, Fife
Batch: M114587

Keltie is a main line but not James.

A great-aunt of James is the ancestor so Masterton is just a side branch.

Hello Dave
My 2nd great-grandfather, James Forsyth's address in the 1861 Scotland Census was 46 High Street in the Civil Parish of Torryburn.
I have been unable to find High Street on any modern map.
Do you know where it was located in 1861?
Thanks
John Hewison
