Deaths Sep Qtr 1909
DOUCE Walter Willoughby 54 N. Bierley 9b 95

I don't think Walter will be found in 1861 or 1871.

I'd like a check for any burial and probate record thanks.

Thanks for looking Amanda.

Census says born in Ireland but don't know when he came to England. I searched on FS and didn't find him. It's a name that is easily mangled.

No, it's Kilmallie, Argyll. :)

married to Janet Stewart; died 18 Dec 1879; age 61; parents Alexander

The other odd thing is that in later census when Catherine was back in Scotland it's born Inverness.

Two born Glencoe and one Fort William.

Allan changes from Glencoe to Appin 1861 to 1871.


I can't find the family in 1851.

I have this for Catherine

23 Nov 1853 Lismore (525) Appin & Duror

but I don't know where I got that.
