Thanks Geoff.

John and Mathew but not sure it's the right John. Naming pattern only half fits. Three daughters but no Martha for father's mother.

Civil Parish: Paisley Low Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 49 Page: 11
Address: 89 Cannal St
Surname First name(s) *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
KERR - (Mrs) F 55 Renfrewshire

It is the right death for Sarah. I have a copy. John listed as a hand loom weaver although he gave that up long before.

Yeah, one or two anomalies with this family, doesn't help :(

Just rechecked the Directories by street name, in 1881/2, 8 Mathieson Road is occupied by a Dunlop, occ = baker. Unless they are multi-occupied businesses, there still isn't a 'Houston' registered there.

Thanks Geoff.

Also the extracted dates are listed as birth dates yet the dates agree with SP which usually puts baptism dates in the index.

They might be baptism dates.

No Matthew Houston b. 1858 - 1862 in 1881 on FS.

There is one born Renfrew 1863 in Blackfriars, Lanark in 1881.

2x deaths after 1901 born 1860 +/- 2 but only one in 1881.
