Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

I think I have the right WYLIE family. Seems siblings Elizabeth and James married MALCOLM siblings. Parents are James WYLIE and Janet LADE. A street named after the family. :D

I've not found the marriage yet but there is an extracted birth for a John that seems to fit:

John WYLLIE b. 29 Apr 1827 Largs, Ayr
- parents James WYLLIE & Janet LADE


1841
Piece: SCT1841/602 Place: Largs -Ayrshire Enumeration District: 4
Civil Parish: Largs Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: Largs
Folio: 3 Page: 20
Address: Lade Street
Surname First name(s) *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
WYLIE Janet F 50 Independent Ayrshire
WYLIE Jean F 20 Sempstress Ayrshire
WYLIE Mary F 20 Dressmaker Ayrshire
WYLIE Elizabeth F 20 Sempstress Ayrshire
WYLIE James M 15 Hand Loom Weaver Apprentice Ayrshire
WYLIE John M 14 Draw Boy Ayrshire
Seems James and John both became tin smiths.

Please see if you can John, Elizabeth and family in 1871. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

Four children seem to match so it looks like the right family.

Emma Graham WYLIE c. 7 Aug 1853 United Presbyterian, Largs, Ayr, Scotland
John WYLIE & Elisabeth CAMPBELL

Grace Hutchison WYLIE b. 4 May 1867 Largs, Ayr, Scotland
John WYLIE & Elisabeth CAMPBELL


Try for 1881 please.

Regards,

Dave
