Thank you. Looks as if the Mrs Turner in the 1841 can't be his wife then, as he was still alive in 1841.

Is there any record of the death of his wife? Specifically, what her given name was?

I wonder......

With the marriage taking place in Scotland, I wonder if Elizabeth and her mother may have returned to Scotland after the death of James? George and Elizabeth may have met in Montreal and perhaps he then travelled to Scotland to marry her?

Anyway, food for thought.

I have failed to find Elizabeth in either Canada or Scotland in the 1851 censuses, let alone her mother.

SP is currently inaccessible* so I cannot check for a death of Helen Turner or Swan at the moment.  :)

*This may be because for reasons I won't go into I am using a tablet on a public network at the moment rather than my usual PC.
