Robert MALCOLM b. 6 Jul 1836 Gorbals, Lanark

Registration Number: 644/10
Registration district: Hutchesontown

COUNTY: Lanarkshire
Address: 161 Cumberland St
MALCOLM Robert head 1837 24 Blacksmith Glasgow, Lanarkshire

This may or may not be the same Robert:

Death 1873 Robert MALCOLM age 38 Tradeston, Lanark, Scotland

I'd like a look up please for 1x or 2x Robert in 1871 in Glasgow.


Mary appears to be with Robert's sister (re your other post)

1871 Census 18 Albert Drive Cathcart
Archibald Robertson 35
Mary wife 36
Mary Malcolm (no relationship given) 10 Scholar b Glasgow....

Can't see Robert or Agnes.... in 1871
Hello trace,

Thank you very much for looking.

Given that death there should be a Robert in 1871 who fits. Pity that one can't be found. It would be a help to see pob before I decide to spend any credits on a copy of that death certificate. My post was two-fold, to find one or two in 1871 to show one possibly died before 1871 and hopefully have enough info in the census to distinguish the two.

The other problem is that I'm not 100% sure the Robert in the 1861 census is the Robert in my tree. That's why I wondered in the other topic about Mary's middle name. If it was much more likely to be from a grandparent than from an uncle it would make that marriage even less likely to be my Robert's.
