Wow!! Totally blown away!!  :o :o :o

I am amazed by how you have got all this! I am still so much a beginner... don't think I would have sussed this on my own! Thank you!

I will have a look for the original documents with regards to it all and see what I can find out. I've got a busy few days ahead but I will try and get a bit of time to delve in.

However I have not been able to find a marriage of James Ross and Jane/Janet Sloan. Any ideas?

You'll find them in the Old Parish Registers, as they were married before the introduction of civil registration in 1855:

James Ross and Janet Sloane, 6 Aug 1845, Glasgow.

I think this must be them in the 1851 census:

145 Trongate Street, St Mary's or Tron
James Ross, head, married, 24, master musician, Glasgow, Lanarkshire
Jean (sic) Ross, wife, married, 23, domestic duties, Glasgow Lanarkshire
Elizabeth Mouet, visitor, unmarried, 20,  fruit dealer, Glasgow, Lanarkshire
Margaret Mouet, visitor, unmarried, 23, fruit dealer, Glasgow, Lanarkshire

Ruth

Thanks Ruth... will have a look into it.

Have you tried England with Jane being born in Liverpool

She wasn't the one born in Liverpool though was she? wasn't that the woman we thought might be George's mum in the Edinburgh census.

There is two death in the Clyde area of Glasgow in 1861:

Janet Ross/Sloan aged 31
Charles Ross, mothers maiden name Sloan, aged under 1 year.

Jane and Janet can be interchangeable, see www.whatsinaname.net/female-names/Jane.html

Found both deaths, they match up with James Ross and being a musician. However I have not been able to find a marriage of James Ross and Jane/Janet Sloan. Any ideas?

Nope! Forget that...I think.

From 1861, I found this entry:

James Rosa (as transcribed on a/try) 35, lodger, musician b  Glasgow
Jane Rosa 31 wife lodger b. Glasgow
Charles Ross son 4 months b. Glasgow

Address: 157 Bridgegate, Glasgow/ Clyde

There are 4 births showing for a Charles born 1860/1 in the Glasgow area. They are not the ones in Hutchesonton or Bridgeton as these show on Family Search and you can check  parents' details, so it potential points to Clyde (where we have the above census entry) or Govan. As luck would continue to have it, the Clyde and Govan entries do not show on FS so the only way of checking the parents is via the original image.

Monica

Yes... all correct.. it is Ross, the births for Charles is correct for the Clyde one.

Have you looked at this possible 1871 census entry for James and Agnes:

James Ross 44 fiddler b. Glasgow
Agnes Cummings Ross 43 b. Glasgow
George Knox 14 Boarder message boy b. Saltcoats Ayrshire
William Ross 8 son b. Glasgow (could this be Fallin?)
Helen Park 50 boarder b. Glasgow

Address: 115 High St Glasgow/Central

Monica

Yes! i just found this myself... I can still not find his birth under the name Knox... this is the right family as everything I have lists James Ross as a violinist/musician... so fiddler would be in keeping. I am wondering if Fallin is a misprint of William as it seems they match in age/DOB.

Yes! James Ross is a widower on their marriage entry! I hadn't actually looked up the entry! Just marriage and death, it seems Agnes was also a widow.  :o

So how do I find them? Do I assume they were Agnes' or James? James' surely of George lists himself as stepson.
