Are you sure that Elizabeth wasn't a sibling of John's?
According to burial records she was interred in the Mains family plot on 3rd February 1903 aged 74 years. The records do not show who her parents were.

Hi Lodger,

No I am not sure at all is the honest answer. She might have been a sibling..

Was Elizabeth's mother Annie Duncan?
Do you have John in the 1851 census?

Hi Lodger,

I don't have John in any census before 1881. The earliest record of him is 1878 at one of the baptism's of his children.

As I said its a bit of a brickwall. He had varying jobs in Manchester from sexton of church to stoker at a dye works and a fireman

Best Regards

On the 1881 it looks like Glasgow, Scotland

Hi Lodger,

It does say Glasgow on the 1881 yes but the 1911 says Wishaw.

I think in 1881 what might have happened is in 1881 he was asked where he was from by the enumerator and said Wishaw. The enumerator probably not knowing where that was asked and John probably said near Glasgow.

It's the only explanation I can think of for the difference

Best Regards
Alan

On 1861 census there is a record transcribed as John Heater born Cambusnethan and boarding with the Main family at Greenfield Cottage N2 Branchel Road.

An Anc* member has corrected the entry to John Frater
