Don't expect any arrivals Geoff.

Not sure about Janet/Jean in 1841 as there seems to be nothing in Largs.

Must be an error in 1855 marriage with Maryann.

Jean/Janet I presume was from Glasgow so she may have returned after William died. ??

Something is very wrong. Census 1861 to 1901 have Janet born Largs. Census 1861 to 1881 have Margaret born Largs and 7 or 8 years younger.

The given names change but both born Largs and 7 or 8 years apart.

1871
Civil Parish: Barony
County: Lanark
Address: 18 Elderslie St
John Malcolm 43 Porter at Cabinet Works Largs
Jane Malcolm Wife 46 Largs
Margaret Yuile S-in-law 38 Dressmaker at Warehouse Largs

1881
Civil Parish: Barony Glasgow
County: Lanark
Address: 24 Belgrave St
John Malcom 53 Porter (Cabinet Works) Largs
Jenet Malcolm Wife 55 Largs
Margaret Yauille Boarder 48 Cloak Maker Largs


So do we have 2x William and Janet CRAWFORD one in Glasgow and one in Largs with only one marriage in SP in Glasgow?


There seems to be some extracted records on FS that are not on SP ???

May be worth bearing in mind, Paisley and Glasgow are very close, [Largs only abot 30k from Glasgow], even though different counties... If William was working in both places at different times, may account for some variations :rolleyes:

I think we have two families and only one marriage and only some baptisms on FS only and some on SP only.
