Hello,

William ROBERTSON & Jane ARROL
Marriage: 31 Dec 1874 Bridgeton, Glasgow, Lanark

I'd like a look up please for the family in 1881.


I can see no death for a Jane/Jean ROBERTSON/ROBINSON (ARROL/ARROLL) 1874- 2009

Is it worth 6 credits to me?

Regards,

Dave

Hello Dave,

Here is possibility for 1881...

William Robertson 32, born Edinburgh, Iron Planer
Jane Robertson 25, born Glasgow
Christina Robertson 1, born Glasgow

Address: 2 North Street
RD: Dennistoun
CP: Glasgow Barony

Let me know if you don’t think this is correct, as there are other possibilities!

Re the credits - I'd hang on and see what materialises! Perhaps Jane was widowed and remarried!

:biggrin: Josie

Hello Josie,

Thanks for looking.

Age is right but pob is not although that could be an error.

My Jane was born 27 May 1857 High Church Paisley, Renfrew. The family moved from Paisley and in 1871 Jane was a mill worker in Glasgow.

I'll look for a death for a Jane without 'other name' being ARROL.
EDIT: 255 of them and 66 in Lanark born 1857 +/- 1.

This is not much help:

name: Robertson
gender: Female
baptism/christening date:
baptism/christening place:
birth date: 16 Jan 1881
birthplace: Blythswood, Lanark, Scotland
death date:
name note:
race:
father's name:
father's birthplace:
father's age:
mother's name: Jane Robertson
mother's birthplace:
mother's age:
indexing project (batch) number: C01900-9
system origin: Scotland-EASy
source film number: 232673
reference number: p36

Curious. SP has 3x Christina ROBERTSON born in Lanark in 1881 but none in Blythswood.

I'm searching without spending. :)

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave,

I had another look! Although there are several Jane/William entries, the one I posted yesterday seems the most likely. (The others are the wrong age/birthplace or have in-laws living with them.)

If yesterday’s post was correct, then here they are in 1891. Unfortunately, Jane’s POB is still shown as Glasgow! :eek:

William Robertson 42, born Collinton, Edinburgh, Iron Planer
Jane Robertson 35
Christina Robertson 11
Jane Robertson 8
William Robertson 6
James Robertson 4

Address: 4 Fleming Street, Dennistoun

Had a search on IGI and FS for the baptisms of the children, but they don’t show up! Are you able to do some more free searches on SP? ;)

Hello Josie,

Thanks for looking.

I can do unlimited free searches or even some that cost me credits. ;)

On SP for births after 1855 you do not get either parent on the input.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Josie,

I found a tree that says this Jane was born abt 1847 to parents James & Catherine.

Curious because age in 1891 agrees with mine not the other one.

My Jane was born 27 May 1857 High Church Paisley, Renfrew - extracted record.

You have the same family for sure both years but ...

William is a contracts carter and the marriage was 31 Dec 1875 Glasgow not 1874 ???

Name: Jane Arrol
Birth: ABT. 1847 in 14 Young Terrance, Glasgow, Scotland
Death: 5 May 1916 in Shettleston, Glasgow, Scotland of Carcinoma of the breast and Carinoma of the liver
Occupation: Power Loam Operator


Curious. There is one marriage in 1875 Bridgeton, Lanark.

Ok, the extracted record says 31 Dec 1874 so it could not be registered that year. It therefore appears in 1875 in the index. So, is the tree totally wrong?

Regards,

Dave

Hello Josie,

Just spent 6 credits to show Jane's parents are James & Catherine and she was 27 in 1874.

So we have my Jane in 1871 a 14 yo mill worker and after that...

Regards,

Dave
