Hi down-under,

Sorry for the delay in thanking you for all your work on this. I actually posted this for a friend who I will see on Wednesday and I'm sure will be delighted. Will get back to you then.

Cheers

Hi down-under!

My friend bopsey posted a search for the parents of Michael McPake b. some time between 1801-1816 on my behalf.

Thank you so much for your sterling efforts in listing such detail.
 Although I had looked at all the censuses you list, I had only been tracing my direct line through

                      Lawrence Mc Pake b?......... (my GGGGf)
                      Michael Mc Pake b1802? 1807? 1812? 1816? IRELAND(my GGGf)
                      Michael McPake b 1846  Selkirk(my GGf)
                      Michael Mc Pake b 1874 Selkirk (my Gf)
                      Edward Mc Pake b 1894 Glasgow (my father)

so reading all your peripheral detail was of great interest.


I am still seeking information as to the date and exact whereabouts of the birth of Michael McPake b Ireland 1802 - 1816
......... and of his father Lawrence McPake


With reference to your 'probably not broker' theory relating to the 185I census, I believe this word to read 'barker' - which would be more in keeping with the profession of 'hawker' listed 10 year later.   (Given the unlikelihood of a dramatic downturn in the fortunes of the McPakes!) 
A barker seemingly rallied the crowds to come to the fair, circus etc., or vocally advertised various wares.

Thank you again ............ and happy hunting!

   :)I have some information to the McPake family for you.
My Great Grandfather (Charles Hunter Beattie) was married to a Mary McPake around 1859 in Selkirk, Scotland. Her father was Michael McPake b1811 Ireland. He was married to a Elizabeth Miller b1813 East Lothian, Dunbar, Scotland. His father Lawrence McPake b1780 in Scotland. I may have more on this as I search my tree. He married a Mary Conway b 1797 Scotland. They also had a daughter call Rose McPake b1823 in Ireland. She married a James Gallagher b1825 also in Ireland.
There is also a census statement as follows: The 5th Ward In The City Of Chicago, Cook, Illinois, USA1860
They had a son John b1856 :)
