Hi all ,

Have you checked the original 1871 Census ?

Using the index at Scotlandspeople I've found -
St Nicholas Aberdeen
Mary Walker age 28(born c1843) , with second persons Alexandrina Walker age 5 , Mary Walker age 3 , Andrew Walker age 1.

The children's ages would seem to match with these references -
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYRH-9JS
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYGK-8X9
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYT4-J4P

The marriage certificate should help in confirming Mary Bruce's age.

So , are we looking for a Mary Bruce born c1843 not c1833 ?

marriage of Mary Bruce and William Walker 22/5/1865


William Walker was a Seaman - aged 28 & a Bachelor- living at 222 Overgate, Dundee. He was the son of Alexander Walker - Labourer & Helen Walker m.s. Gordon. Mary Bruce was a Domestic Servant - aged 23 & a Spinster - also living at 222 Overgate Dundee. Her father Alexander Bruce was a Bleacher's Labourer & her mother Ann Bruce m.s. Wilcox was deceased by the time of Mary's marriage...Their marriage was witnessed by Thomas Hunter & Arthur Kerr & the officiating minister was R. Logan.
 
according to marriage Mary Bruce born circa 1842 and not 1833. William Walker  1837

would like to find both Alexander Walker and Helen Walker in earlier census records and also Alexander Bruce too

Many thanks  :)

There is aa Alexander and Hellen Walker living at 21 Water Lane Aberdeen on the 1851 census. He was born Oldmeldrum and is a labourer. She is born Oldmeldrum too. They have George19, Rachel 14, Alexander 11, Joseph 7 and Margaret Smith 3 al children born Aberdeen apart from George who was born in Oldmeldrum.

Don't know if this is your family. No William with them

Think it may be your family as they are living at Park Lane Aberdeen in the 1841 census and have all children plus William Walker born 1835 living with the.

Yes, struggling to find them on the 1861. Did the marriage cert say if Hellen was deceased?
