The 1901 has over 100 Swanson entries in Wick so can you post the full details of your particular family so we can find them in 1891 for you

Thanks so much, you have the correct swansons, Carrie Swanson was my grandmother.  So happy to have information about my family.

Do you have Margaret's maiden name from Carrie's birth or marriage certificate?  I can then look her up on earlier censuses for you

Yes, I know Margaret's Maiden name was Miller.  I noticed on the 1901 census, the two oldest children are not mentioned, John and Maggie, John would have been 17 and Maggie 15, maybe they were out of the house and working.

Looking at the 1871 - there is no entry for Margaret with a birthplace of Latheron but there are 2 entries with a birthplace of Wick

Only one family is living in Latheron and given the fathers name here - I wonder if she could be this entry

Address East Clyth - Clyth Estate Latheron.  All b East Clyth except mum Margaret

Magnus Miller   41 pavement quarrier
Margaret     34 b Midlelyth
Christena  11
Margaret    9
Williamina 7
Donald  5
Magnus  2
John  2 Months
