The census index at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk lists the family as James S Connolly, 41; Isabella, 35; Isabella, 9; and James, 7. If you go to the Scotland's People (SP) web site you can view the original of the census, which will tell you his occupation and where they were all born.

The SP index to the old parish registers lists the baptisms of Isabella on 19 July 1851 and James on 19 March 1854, children of James Smith Conally and Isabella McVie. You can view the original baptism records on the SP web site.

James and Isabella were married in Edinburgh in 1845, and the marriage is recorded in both St Cuthbert's parish and Canongate parish, indicating that they lived in different parishes at the time of their marriage.  You can view the original marriage records on the SP web site.

The 1851 census transcription at https://www.freecen.org.uk/cgi/search.pl lists at 459 Lawnmarket James S Connolly, 31, printer compositor manager, born Lasswade, and his wife Isabella, 27, born Canongate. You can view the original census at SP.

On the deaths index, Isabella Connolly, other surname McVie, mother's maiden surname Hamilton, died in St Giles in 1861, aged 35. Her death certificate will tell you the full names of both her parents.

The 1871 census index lists in Newington James Connelly, 51; Maria, 40; James, 17; and Walter P, 6. From the IGI at Familysearch, Walter Philip Connolly was born on 12 August 1864 in Edinburgh to James Smith Connolly and Maria Rutherford, who were married on 15 January 1863 in Edinburgh. You can view their marriage certificate and Walter's birth certificate at SP (the marriage is indexed as J S Connolly.)

James Smith Connolly, aged 54, died in Newington in 1874. You can view his death certificate at SP. It will tell you the full names of both his parents, including his mother's maiden surname.

If, as you say, you were 'looking for' James Smith Connolly, you must have been looking in the wrong places.  ;) Everything you wanted to know is available at Scotland's People.

I am not a member of Scotlandís People and am researching for my daughter, I thought it was pay for view for that website which I cannot afford, so although I  know of Scotlands people I came here for help. Thank you very much for the information you have provided, but I will not be paying for certificates or for credits on Scotlandís people.
I will pass this on to my daughter so thanks again

You cannot 'join' or be a member of, Scotland's People. It is only pay-per-view, and very modestly priced compared with some similar sites. £7.50 worth of credits buys you images 5 certificates, which is very good value compared to £9.25 for one English certificate which contains less information and has to come by post.

Everything I found for you was free of charge, and you could have found it for yourself by taking the trouble to search the free indexes at SP. It would cost you less than a cup of coffee to look at each of the two death certificates, which would confirm what I found and get you back another generation.

All this information freely available at our fingertips!
