Thanks gibbo.

Didn't have that.

I looked on SP and didn't see the marriage.

That looks as though she arrived married with son William ??

Three possible births for Charles in Midlothian but can't match the district for Andrew or William.

1861 census might help. FreeCEN has no coverage of Midlothian in 1861.
