Think I've found them in 1871 in Carlisle, in what looks like a lodging house. Indexed as Prat - possibly one of those funny es that look like rs, although other es on the page are 'normal'

Barwise Court, Blackfriars Street,
RG10/5217/42/30
Elizabeth Hetherington, 65, b. Cumberland

Mathew Prat, lodger,  27,sawyer,  b; Scotland

......which is only 25 miles from Featherstone Castle, where James and Mary Prior were living in 1861 with some of their family, including 17yo Joyce.

Mat(t)hew Peat died in 1925 at the age of 85, still at Lochrutton and by then a widower.

I'm still thinking that Christian Flora and Joyce were probably twins . Such a pity that there's no birth record.  I wonder if there might be something in the Kirk Sessions records?
