Hello,

1851
Civil Parish: Govan
Town: Partick
County: Lanarkshire
Address: Castlewalk Street Jamieson's Lands
REID James, Head 1803 age 48 Foreman Thread Manufactores Paisley, Renfrew
REID Janet, Wife 1811 age 40 Paisley, Renfrew
REID Jean, daughter 1836 age 15 Paisley, Renfrew
REID Robert, Son 1838 age 13 Message Boy Paisley, Renfrew
REID Jessie, Daughter 1842 age 9 Scholar Paisley, Renfrew
REID Margaret, Daughter 1844 age 7 Paisley, Renfrew
REID Barbara, Daughter 1849 age 2 Paisley, Renfrew
Marriage # 2763/1861 REID ROBERT C MCGREGOR ISABELLA RAYMOND TERRACE


Family arrived in Australia 1851 - 1861. ???

Jessie and Barbara married in NSW in 1874.

James is in NSW by 1878:

1878-79 N.S.W Electoral Roll - The Glebe
REID James, St. John’s Road, freehold, House St. John’s Road Glebe


Janet also arrived because she is still alive when daughter Jessie died:

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 20 December 1892, p. 8
THE FRIENDS of Mr. JAMES ARMSTRONG are kindly invited to attend the Funeral of his late beloved Wife, to leave the residence of her mother Mrs. Janet Reid, No 89 St. John's-road, Forest Lodge, THIS AFTERNOON, at half-past 1, for Rookwood.

Jean died in 1900 so Margaret is the only one not accounted for in NSW so perhaps the whole family arrived between 1851 and 1861. If not together then Robert arrived first and the others followed perhaps after 1861, even after 1871 for some of them.

Regards,

Dave
