Shields 1861 census Kirkmaiden
« on: Wednesday 20 February 08 15:14 GMT (UK) »
Hi All,
Could someone please please help me with this family;

Ann 50, Rosanna 20, William 18 and Brabson Shields all born I think Ireland.
Ann's daughter Maryann married my GG Uncles John Chalmers in 1860 in Kirkmaiden and I am trying to piece her family together, I know from her marriage certificate that her father was dead when she married. The family aren't on the 1851, so they must have moved over in between.  I'm not sure if there are any other siblings, so I would be most grateful for any further information. Also where John and Maryann Chalmers (could be Chambers ) were living
Regards
Beenie

Yippee.....

Marriage on the IGI of Brabson Shields to Sarah McCutchan on 15 Dec 1864 at Kirkmaiden by Drunmore, Wigton, Scotland.  An 'extracted' entry

If you now go to www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk - a (pay per view site) you'll be able to download a marriage entry which will give his parents names.

Regards,   Steve    :O)

Hi Steve,
Thank you so much for this info, I had John and Maryann's children except Ann and William, I think Ann must have died as they called their next daughter Annie. I do have the MI booklet, their son David died aged 5 in 1878, so I would have thought they would have put any other children on the stone. John and Maryann had a farm at Sandmill Stoneykirk. I think their son John ran it after their deaths, he died in 1941 and then the trail runs cold. Will check Scotlandspeople for Brabson's parents, as I am sure he is related. Thank you so much for your help. Will have to check in the library next time I am in Stranraer.
Regards
Beenie

P.S. I have Sarah with her children Thomas 14, William 9 and twins Sarah and Annie 1, in Port Logan on the 1881 census, she is described as Seaman's wife, Brabson is very elusive!
