Monica, thank you so much.  You have given me plenty to think about and I'm gonna have fun going through all this  :D  It is brilliant to think I may have a positive lead now!  I'd lost my way a bit but this has given me something to think about and I hadn't seen the other posts so thank you for that too.   :) :)

Hello all, I haven't been on for a while but I'm at a dead end with the Edgar family.  I can't seem to find them on the 1901 Irish census recently released to the public which makes me think they are probably in scotland (?) at that time.  I'm going on an old memory that there were Scottish links and the fact they are not on  the 1901 census seems to reiterate the fact  ??? ???

The details I have are -
William Edgar (Snr), wife's name unkown but known children are -
Hamilton Edgar
Archibald Edgar
William Edgar
Martha Edgar
Jane(t) Edgar known as JInty.
The men seem to show up on the 1911 census but Wiliam Snr is a widower then.  I would greatly appreciate any more help  :)

Hi Bo

From the details you gave:

William Edgar (Snr), wife's name unkown but known children are -
Hamilton Edgar
Archibald Edgar
William Edgar
Martha Edgar
Jane(t) Edgar known as JInty

Is this from the 1911 Irish census. Can you post the details from it - ages etc. Do they all show as born in Scotland?

Hi Monica

No, these details are not from 1911 census but from information gleaned from (now diminished) family.  However, the 1911 census shows that (whom I believe to be Hamilton Edgar) was born in Glasgow. I'm also working on the fact that I was told as a child that Granda Edgar 'was Scottish'.  I find it strange that I cannot find the whole family on the 1901 Irish census and only parts of it on the 1911 census.  And, because I do not know the mother's name I'm at a bit of a loss how to proceed.  :(

To be honest Bo, I've got confused the few Hamilton Edgars we have found over the searches  :P You get the feeling that the ones we have found to date in Lanarkshire are probably connected as extended family.

Your grandfather who shows as born in Glasgow in the 1911 census in Ireland, can you post his details from that entry you have found - can't easily see him myself  :-\

Who else have you found on this census from the potential siblings for your grandfather Hamilton - ages and place of birth?

Rubbish at finding Hamilton in the 1911 Irish census....but think I  have found the family in the 1901 census in Ireland  :) www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai000716617/

William and wife Lizzie born in Glasgow but all five children including Hamilton born in Belfast by the look of it.
