Early Annan Census - look up offer
« on: Tuesday 20 July 04 12:13 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

I'm posting this offer here rather than the main offer board as it is a very narrow scope of interest.

I have a need/desire/whim to have another look at the 1801/1811/1821 census for Annan.  The book I have access to is the George Gilchrist transcript - not the original film which is available through the LDS I think.

If you let me know on this thread what names you are interested in I'll let you know what is there.

Most surviving early census i.e. pre-1841 are simple headcounts.  The difference in Annan is that people are named.  The ages are not to be relied on the instruction for the enumerator was to guess!

My direct family are well documented on all three census and it all ties in to births and marriages but I know I'm lucky.

Cheers,
PAm
 ;D

PS I'll be going to the National library (where this book is) on Monday 26th - work allowing

Update:  I've bought new shoes  :) but they are blisteringly sore  >:( so I'll be going the library tomorrow... P ;D

Hiya Audrey,

Hope to get to the library very soon (tomorrow).

Who are your Scotts?  I've already written all the Scotts out for the Early Census, 1841 and about 2/3rds of the OPRs.  I can send these to you if you want - pm me your email address if you would like all the files.  Alternatively let me know your specific interest and I'll post any connected info here.

My Scotts, starting at my brickwall are..

John Scott and Helen Carruthers both of Annandale lawfully married 14th Jan 1823

They had 9 children one was Helen Scott who married Michael Fallen she is my 3xgreat grandmother.

I've been up a few blind alleys as there are squads of John Scotts in Annan!

Cheers,
Pam

Hi Audrey,

I have to apologies I thought I'd come back to you on your question about Jean Irving & C Scott in Annan.

Quote
My grand mother was born in Kirkpatrick Flemming  in 1834 I have her Parents the were
John Douglas and Jean Irving  Jeans mother is listed as C scott of Anan

I looked at all the Irvings in Annan and noted any where the wife had a forename beginning with C.  I found this on...

1801

Lauriston
421
Robert Irving
Christain Irving
Charles Irving
Jean Irving
William Irving
(ag 3)

In 1811 there is even less info!

1811

Port Annan
413
Chrisr. Irving Sp dau

This is odd as it implies Chrisr. is the husband but the 1811 is of very poor quality of info.

There is nothing that fits in 1821.  Again sorry about the delay and I hope this fits or helps.

Next step I guess if it looks promising is to see if Christain Irving is nee Scott?

Cheers,
Pam

HI Boongie Pam

If you go back to the Library one day and it's not too much trouble
I'd appreciate a lookup on the Annan census for PRINGLE.   I'm in Canada and can't find this info.

Thanks for the offer

I noticed you offer and wondered if it was possible to look up a Robert Heard wife Jane (Rutherford) Children William Elizabeth Annie Andrew Joseph James and Mary in Annan Or HalfMorton. Maybe they are the same Place?
