Andrew McCreadie
« on: Friday 02 February 18 20:51 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find an 1891 census reference for the above person.  He was born 1870 in Girvan and eventually lived in Slatefield Road, Glasgow. He would have been in Glasgow from around the early 1890's hence the expectation that this is where the record will lie. He was employed as a Patern Weaver.

Anything anyone could do in helping would eb greatly appreciated.

Thanks Lud - that is very helpful and fits with the rest of its history.

He is still at 10 Slatefield Street in 1902, but then at 7 Annfield Street in 1903 there is an entry...
     
Andrew McCreadie, Weaver, so he appears to have changed his address, unless it is someone else with the same name.     In 1904, he is still at 7 Annfield Street... then in 1905, at the same address, he is listed as "Shopman".

Did he have a shop?

After this, the only Andrew McCreadie I see is living at 234 Wellington Street, but he is a Salesman, and he seems to be here up until 1910.      Don't know if this is any use to you.

I think a shopman was someone employed in a shop rather than the owner, who would more likely be described as 'merchant' or by the name of his trade, such as grocer or spirit dealer or draper.

Thank you for your feedback.  I think it most likely that he worked in a shop and was not a shopkeeper as such.  I have the other information, but its very useful to have this as a check.  He was a very famous footballer in his time.
