census look-ups for the FLEMING family Bathgate
« on: Wednesday 04 January 06 21:53 GMT (UK) »
I wonder if some kind person could please look up my gt.gt.gt.grandfather Alexander Fleming in the 1841 census and the 1851 census. I think he was a weaver and he would have been 80 years old in 1851.
I would be particularly interested in other members of the household.
With thanks
Jill

Hello Jill,

I don't have the census info. you require, but I wonder if your Alexander is the same as mine ? He was born on 30th Nov., 1772 in Bathgate. He married Janet Neilson about 1800. Their children were, James and Andrew, there are probably more, I haven't looked as I was interested in James who is my g-g-grandad. Do contact me if we have a connection. I have lots of Fleming certificates to share.

Regards
Kit

Dear Kit I think mine may be a different Alexander Fleming although possibly related .I have his death certificate which as you know list a great deal of information including the names of his wife - Isabella Leslie and parents -James and Marion. (he does have a son born 1801)
He was also born in Torpichen a little village near Bathgate.
 There seems to be a lot of Flemings in that area.
Goodluck with the family history hunt - it certainly is compulsive !!

Hello Jill
          There is an Alexander Fleming age 65 Cotton Hand Loom Weaver Wife Isabella 55 children Elizabeth 25 Mary 20 Jane 15 Alexander 11 James 9 all born in West Lothian on the FREECEN site

The reference is
SCT1841/662  Folio 0 Page 1
High Street

If the same rules applied to the 1841 Scottish Census as the English yhen ages were rounded down to the nearest 5years which means Alexander could be anything between 65 and 69 close to the age you are looking for.

Thanks Grant for your look up.
This is proving to be another puzzle.I'm almost certain that this is the right Alexander Fleming married to an Isabella and a cotton weaver as this ties in with the info on his death cert ificate in1855. However none of the children seem to match although these could in fact all be grandchildren looking at their ages. Thanks anyway.
