Stirlingshire / WATT/GILLIES in St Ninians
« on: Tuesday 08 April 14 09:29 BST (UK)  »

I'm looking to find out anything I can about the family of James Watt and Elizabeth Gillies. I've found on Family search in St Ninians their marriage and the baptisms of 5 children

Marion 16 Jul 1820
James 6 Feb 1823
Mary 14 Oct 1827
Elizabeth 7 Sep 1829
John 14 Mar 1835

The parents and some of the kids are on the census in St Ninians too

1841 South Side Cowan Street, St Ninians
James Watt    45 Wright Y
Elizabeth Watt 45 Y
Mary Watt    13 Y
Elizabeth Watt 11 Y
John Watt    5 Y

Maybe James Junior
1841 Bandeath, St Ninians
James Watt    20 Ag Lab Y
Alexander Grame    15
Peter Ferguson    15
Andrew Shearer    12

1851 Town Of St Ninians
James Watt    59 Wheel Wright St Ninians
Elizabeth Gillies    57 St Ninians
Marion Watt    28 At Home  St Ninians

1861 6 East Side St Ninians
James Watt    69     House Carpenter  St Ninians
Jessy Watt    63  England
John Watt    26  House Carpenter  St Ninians
Mary Rae    6  Boarder  Scholar  Renfrew, Renfrewshire

James second marriage was to Janet Mill and luckily it was in 1855. This says he was the son of George Watt and Mary Munn and he had from his previous marriage 5 children living and 4 deceased

I have James' death certificate in 1868 informant was his son John and have Janet's death certificate in 1872 informant was a nurse

So what I really want to find out is

1. When and where did Elizabeth the first wife die?
2. When and where were the other 4 children born?
3. Are the four missing children the four who were dead on the marriage certificate?
4. Where is Marion on the 1841 census and after the 1851?
5. Where is James Junior after 1841?
6. Where is Mary after 1841?
7. There's an Ancestry tree that suggests Elizabeth married James Thomas Reid in 1857 and I've found census that seem to match but where is she in 1851?
8. I've found John in 1841, 1861 through to 1891 and have his 1892 death certificate but where is he in 1851?
9. Where is Janet on the 1871?

Any help would be really appreciated

The above is everything the entry says, it doesn't say bach or wid.

So it could be either

I don't know if that will help


Unfortunately you can't get access to births after 1921.

But if you buy Gertrude's death certificate it should have the names of her children

DOUGHERTY Gertrude Elizabeth
Father  John Will Foxon
Mother Mary Theresa
Died Oakl
Aged 88 in 1984
Reg Number 16825

If you go to this website you can download the certificate immediately for AUD $17.50

Hope that helps
