Hi Shezzy,

Was reading your post and thought I would add this info for Palmer.(Doesn't give a lot of information, though)

1801 Annan Census - Burgh North Side - Mary Palmer, Elizabrth Pool.  Murray Street William Palmer,cottr, Mary Palmer, John Palmer,(manf.2) 'cottr' was an abbreviation of the word 'cottoneer' meaning those who worked in the cotton factory, which was established in 1785

1811 Annan Census - BUTT Street - Wm. Palmer, Spo, 2m. 3fem.

Hi skasd,

There are lots of Steel's in the 1801/1811/1821 census's all spelt without the 'e'. Was William Steel's father Davis or David?

Will go through them and get back asap.

Hi,

I am trying to trace back my Lindsay ancestors in Annan . I have them already traced back to Battery street in Annan in 1841 as Fleshers (butchers) . There main place of business seemed to be as Fleshers (butchers) in High street Annan though.

I am wondering if there are many Lindsays in Annan in these early census's pre 1821 which would enable me to trace my 3rd gr grandfather John Lindsay and David Lindsay also Daniel Lindsay Fleshers (butchers)

Would it be difficult to get a list of all of the Lindsays in Annan on those early census records.

Thank you for whatever you can provide.

skasd,

Found these with the names David Steel/Jane/Jean Steel. The early census's don't give an awful lot of info.

1801 Census

HILLTON David Steel,Eliza Smith,Jean Steel,John Steel,Mary Steel,David Steel, George Steel. (Ag.4) I assume the Ag means Agriculture.


1811 Census
ALLALEE  Jean Steel,Elizabeth,Robert,John, George, William.  (Ag.)


1821 Census
STIRKPOOL  Jane Steel 40, David Steel 10, John Steel 10, Will 10, Eliz 20, Beoni (fem) 5 Rebecca 5. (I think the ages could be incorrect)

Hi!,

The Lindsay's at Hallmeadow seem to be the family. I did not know about the Hallmeadow location though it may prove helpful.
Of course ages seem a bit rounded though.

The Battery road family in 1811 I think are the likely parents of John at Hallmeadow but nothing is really obvious.

Thanks a lot for your help.

One other query I was wondering if there were any Reid, Reed or Bell familys in Annan on the same census.?

Interested also if there was a Benson at the Queensberry arms in 1821.?

I wonder also who the Flesher was in High St in Annan during these Census's.?

Sorry if too many questions

But thanks anyway
