Not such a long shot, I am not ruling anything out until I get something more definite

Thanks that is the right family, I am trying to go the other way to get past Mary Charters and father Thomas. Could also be Chartres.

So not much more than Family Search. I was hoping there might be an "occupation" or a "parish of"

Do you know what Branton Twyst means?

Do you know where the actual records are?

thanks for the look up

Northumberland Lookup Requests / Mary Charters bap 1805 Branton Northumberland
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 23:33 GMT (UK)  »
I have a census with her birthplace of Branton and a Family Search record saying she was baptised at the Pressy church in Branton 16th August 1805, born 25th July 1805. Father Thomas Charters mother Mary.
I have no siblings or marriage or anything else for this family.

 Does anyone know where the actual parish registers might be for Branton Presbyterian?

Mary Charters went on to Marry John Wait in Tynemouth in 1826, but her father is not listed on the marriage record to confirm I have the right parents or any more detail.

Thanks Annie for all the suggestions. I have actually found him on the 1841 census! After 15 years of looking on and off. He is living with his mother Agnes Jackson and brother Jackson McNab. William names his second daughter Agnes, and third daughter Annie Jackson McNab.

Having found out more about where he died and his parents from his brothers death cert, I think I may have used up all my luck for today. Common names without useful middle names make the detective work more "indepth".

I will check the newspapers next.

Place of registration is same as other people on page who died in Uig. But I can't read it.

Do you think it could say "His x Mark Employer"?

can't find his girls in 1871, and in 1881 they are in Glasgow with the widow of William.

William McNab was born in Stranraer Wigtownshire in c1826. (according to 1851 census)
Cant' find him in 1841.
In 1851 he was married to Ann McDonald living in Middle Greenock.
In 1861 he was living in Rickergate Carlisle with 3 children.
In 1871 I can't find him, she is living in Glasgow with just one son, living under her maiden name, her son was William McNab plasterer. No idea where the, by then, 4 girls were, the youngest 2 were born in northern England.
1881 Ann McNab widow was living in Govan Glasgow with 4 girls.
In 1891 she was living in Dundee.
So pinning their locations down is tricky.

Death certificate says Journeyman Plasterer, married to (blank), Married, aged 50 the informant/Witness I have attached. I haven't followed through on this person. But I think it says his employer who lived in Glasgow.

The cemetery at Ardroil that is there now was opened in 1909.
Where was someone buried in 1877?
TIA
