William Laughland


Valued Member
In the 1841 census, there is the following


My William Laughlan (however you want to spell it), was born on 15 April 1827, which would make him 15. Given that the Census sometimes rounds ages off, could someone please tell me who he is living with at the time?

He was born in Drumachose, Co. Derry, Ireland

I should add that his father is also William Lac (however it is spelt) and mother Jane Stewart hopefully should be on the census with him. They were both born around 1800, and his father was from Ireland also.

Ive seen the name spelt Maclachlan, Lauchline, Laughlan, etc etc

I have previously asked about this family before, but it is a different question. If you do happen to read through the previous long message, I have since found the marriage of William & Elizabeth and Elizabeth's death soon after the birth of Samuel, hence the reason for William & Jane marrying and looking after Samuel later.
