Hello,

This is one of two cousins the same age named William. The other is a baker.

1861
Registration District: Blythswood
Civil Parish: Glasgow Barony
County: Lanarkshire
ED: 64
Roll: CSSCT1861_105 Page 9
Address: 47 Renfrew St
William Malcolm 35 Stone Mason Largs, Ayrshire
Jane Malcolm 35 Mauchline, Ayrshire
Robert Malcolm 12
Archibald Malcolm 8
Elizabeth Malcolm 5
Jane Malcolm 2
Rebecca B P Malcolm 1 Mo
All offspring b. Glasgow
I'd like a look up please for the family in 1871. If William and or spouse Jean/Jane can be found in 1871 then I'd like a search for 1881.

Thanks.

Dave

Thanks Geoff. :)

Back to Mauchline. That's a real puzzle.

I searched for a death for Jane/Jean and didn't find one to fit assuming her maiden name was MALCOLM and that she didn't remarry. I'm thinking with lack of death with maiden name as MALCOLM and pob as Mauchline that it's not a cousin after all. Lots of Jean/Jane born Mauchline if she was not a MALCOLM.

Alex the visitor is perhaps a nephew. Time will tell if the other family can be found in 1871 as per other topic.

A try for 1891 please.

Dave

Someone suggested it was a cousin as I recall, was there any evidence?
Not real evidence yet. Still to find the death of Jean. Need to know when Jean drops out of census.

There is this marriage:

William Malcom
Scotland, Marriages, 1561-1910
marriage: 26 November 1847 Glasgow,Lanark,Scotland
spouse: Jean Malcom

which fits time and place but not pob Mauchline.

Have we got birth details for Robert b. abt. 1850?
Not yet. Not in FS. But will look again in SP.

No Robert MALCOLM/MALCOM/MALCOME in Lanark in 1850 with father = William and mother blank.

Will extend the search.

No Robert/Rbt MALCOLM/MALCOM/MALCOME in Lanark in 1849-1851 with father blank and mother blank.

I just spent 6 credits on Rebecca's birth and it's Jane MALCOLM M.S. MALCOLM.

I have searched all of Scotland for a Jane/Jean with married name MALCOLM/MALCOM/MALCOME and other surname the same with all combinations and I found one death in 1878 in West Kilbride, Ayr for a Jane MALCOLM ((MALCOM) Age 76, which only fits if the age is 25 years out.


and one more:

Death 1884 Jane MALCOLM (MALCOME) Not Ayr or Lanark Age 71 so does not fit either if age roughly right.

Is that from FS, if so it doesn't give either of their POB, only marriage place, Glasgow?

Can't see birth record for Robert or Archibald.

Found one more death:

Jane MALCOME (MALCOLM) 1884 Not Ayr or Lanark Age 71

Don't know if that is a different one or not but age does not fit.
