Henderson family Glenhead Farm Kilmadock
« on: Saturday 03 July 10 05:14 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find a bit more on my family

James Henderson  inherited "the house property at Doune Perth"  when his father James Henderson died in Glasgow 1868  age 83
I would  love to know  where and what this house  was as it does not say in the will ...I am thinking it could be Glenhead  Farm

The 1851 census has James Henderson  at Glenhead farm 160 acres,
1861 census has  him still there   and son James Whitehead Henderson age 2 he married Margaret Whitehead in 1852
James Henderson died in 1868 age  55  in the 1871  1881 & 1891 census family  are still on the farm & Margaret is now head
other siblings of James 1813-1868  moved on to Glasgow  Margaret Henderson  nee Whitehead died in 1901 at Glenhead  James W  Henderson son was  witness  1912 Scottish County Directory James Henderson was still  farming Glenhead. they also appear at Clarkton Farm does anyone have local knowledge about those farms

Hello Craigsanquhar.  Glenhead is roughly 1 mile east of Doune and Clarkton is just on the outskirts of the village to the West.
Their are still Hendersons around this area but wether they are related I don't know.
Will see what I can find out .
