FreeCEN only has 48% coverage of Perth in 1851 and no Andrew Menzies.

FS
Scotland Census, 1851
No records found for Name: andrew menzies, Event: Birth, Place: perth, Event Range: 1827-1831

Remove Andrew and FS has 9 born Perth in that range but no Andrew.

Margaret 19 in 1855?

Don't think it's Glasgow.

They would have left very soon after daughter Ann was born in Perth 6 Mar 1855.
