George Coupar (or alternative spellings) married Margaret Doig (Doeg) on 30 April 1825 at Coupar Angus. 1841 Census indicates he was 39 so born about 1802.  One of his female children had a middle name of Maxwell which may be a parent or grandparents surname

So far I haven't been able to establish his parents. If anyone has any ideas or thoughts, it would be appreciated.

It may be an idea to give the address on the 1841 & list names of all known children in order/where they were born (areas) & George's occupation?
