Searching for William Wayman (Weyman)
« on: Saturday 27 January 18 12:21 GMT (UK) »
John Wayman was born in Greenwich in 1814, parents given on his death certificate in 1881 as William Wayman, a signalman in the Royal Navy and Ann Craig. Ann, I believe was born in 1765 in Neilston, Renfrew. William and Ann were married in Greenock in 1797 with their early family, William (1800) and Mary (!804) born in Greenock. A later sibling Robert was also born back in Greenock, making it seem likely that William (father) was in the Navy for a time. Family notes recall William as operating a sloop carrying provisions in the Firth of Forth area, so again a sea faring link. A William Weyman is listed on the forces records website as serving on the HMS Cornwallis in 1810, however the Cornwallis served in the Far East and only returned to the UK in 1814. This casts doubt on the John birth date of Feb 1814.

Question, does anyone else have any connections to this family? I have been unable to find a likely birth for William the older in either the IGI files or the Scottish records.

Doing the sums, it makes Ann Craig 49 at 1814, and even older when the later  (Robert) was born in Greenock?

It doesn't quite ring true.

What records/locations  do you have for John Wayman prior to his death?

Thanks for the rapid response Pauline.
John shows in the 1861, 1871 and 1881 census as an upholsterer working in Glasgow. The 1881 census gives his birthplace as Greenwich, the other census gives it as England. He married Jane McLauchlan in London in 1836 and their early family were born in London including my great great grandmother Jane. They moved to Scotland sometime between 1842 and 1846. No idea why he and Jane were in London, she was born in Argyllshire.
John's death certificate gives his parents details so most probably I have the birth of Ann Craig wrong.

William and Ann are living in Greenock in 1841 - he is shown as b.1765 England, and Ann as b.1772 Renfrewshire.

In 1851 Ann still there, now a widow, and shown b.1772 Greenock, Renfrewshire.

She died 7th (I think, hard to read) January 1856 Greenock - informant was son John Wayman - and her parents are given as John Craig and Mary Campbell.

So, William bc.1765 in England and Ann ca.1772 Greenock (I note when married her name given as Agnes).

A dau. Mary Ann Wayman also baptised in Greenwich on 26/11/1815 (perhaps the earlier Mary died).

Annette, That's great many thanks. I had been looking on ScotlandsPeople for the 1841 details with no success but have now found it - even the phonetic name option failed to pick up Wllm Weyman!
Very many thanks
