Hi Cupcake, I'm hoping you could do a look-up for me:

I have a Margaret Henderson, born around 1824. She had always named Annan as her birth place in censuses and James Henderson, a school master, as her father but I've not found a baptism for her or any census with a James Henderson, school master.

I'm not sure if there's occupations included, but if you could check for an adult James Henderson in the 1821 census for me please?

 I have checked the Early Annan 1821 census but no luck. Have even checked on Scotlands People for a baptisim/birth for Margaret with father James between 1823 /1826 none for Annan.

I do know there are no BMD's for Annan before 1855.

If I find anything I shall let you know.

Thanks for having a look Cupcake. I've always suspected the father's name and occupation were a fib, as she couldn't write which must be strange for a school master's daughter. Also haven't found any trace of a school master James Henderson anywhere. Thanks for your time anyway :)

You're welcome. I know how frustrating it can be  trying to find someone with very little information, especially if it isn't correct.

I have had the census for a while now.  I  purchased it from "Family History Centre" Dumfries. Can't remember how much it cost.
