LANG is also used as a middle name by her eldest son for one of his daughters.

Hi, I looked at some births of the children to James Roberts & Agnes Lang hoping they would have the parents' marriage date but both pre 1855 & post 1855 in Kirkintilloch do not seem to list what date parents married. I went back and looked again for a birth for Agnes and between 1800-1817 there are 4 in Scotland, one catching my eye. 31 Oct 1802 Agnes born Kilsyth, Stirling to James Lang & Agnes Hamilton. It only struck me as in the censuses James Roberts says he is also born there. This may be no relation at all or ??. Its possible the birth was no registered or the marriage as it was not compulsory at this time. Kim

Hi Kim and thanks.

1802 looks a bit early, but who knows really.  Thanks for your efforts.

They may have been members of a Dissenting church and those records may be held in Edinburgh

Sorry, I had to google it!  Good Grief.... I'm a Dissenter, How exciting.  Do all Presbyterians know this?!

Hi Steven:

I have Langs in my family.  William Lang married Janet Scott on 2/21/1828.
They had a daughter Isabella Lang born in Denny circa 1831.  Both of them were weavers.

Team

I'm just putting it out there again....

I've worked out that this all must of been happening in a short space of time....

1841 Census.  My James ROBERTS still at home in Kirkintilloch with his father and siblings aged 18.
1841 Census.  Agnes LANG.  No idea where she is or even if this is really her name!!  But I have now found this...

1841 Census.  Bothwell Castle Gate.
John Gordon. 56
Agnes Lang. 55
Agnes Lang. 23
Gaven Gordon. 18

All born Lanarkshire.

Soooooo.... The 1841 Census was enumerated on 7th June 1841 and William Roberts, the eldest child of James Roberts and Agnes Lang was born in March 1842 (cant find a baptism for him but I can for the other children).  So for William to be born in March 1842, Agnes probably became pregnant in June 1841, Census time!
