Just spent 1 more credit and found mother's surname is LEWIS so not the stone mason (Rebecca WYLLIE).

I can find no William born in Scotland 1825 -1832 with mother = Lewis

There does not seem to be 3x William roughly the same age in Lanark in 1881.

Yes and yes. :)

If that 1883 death in Calton is correct with mother's maiden name = Lewis then it's not the baker who is in Govan and died after 1891 and it's not the stone mason who's mother's maiden name is Wyllie. Therefore there should be a 3rd William in Lanark in 1881 roughly the same age but there does not seem to be.

We now have Jean with her married daughter Rebecca in 1891. Is she listed as a widow? If William the mason died 1881 - 1891 then I can't find his death.

And I can't find Jean's death. I've searched with the given name blank to allow for Jean/Jane/Jeannie etc...

SP has 5 hits for a Jeanie Malcolm 1891 - 1901, if Rebecca was the informant it is the same name as the 1891 census.

There are 4 between 1901 - 1911:rolleyes:

Doesn't give marital status :(
:confused:

You referring to the 1883 death for a William or the 1847 marriage for Jean?

If Jean was a widow when she married that would explain why I can't find a death using MALCOLM etc as her maiden name but Rebecca's birth certificate says Jean's maiden name is Malcolm.
