I'm struggling to find any christening records for most of the Sneddon children on SP which is rather strange as majority of them were born after 1855 when the the more detailed records started.

I did wonder about James/Janet on the census.

Weirs from Ayrshire, Scotland.

Because of the spelling variations on the surname, try searching the OPRs on SP this way:

Surname - SN*N

Area - Dunfriesshire

Time period - 1845-1855

That is enough to bring up all the pre 1855 christenings for them.

Here are 5 to start with.  Still puzzling as to why no George.

SNEDDAN   JANET   GEORGE SNEDDAN/AGNES MOFFAT FR226 (FR226)   01/08/1847   Kirkmichael
SNEDDAN   DINA           GEORGE SNEDDAN/AGNES MOFFAT FR229 (FR229)   19/01/1849   Kirkmichael
SNEDDEN   WILLIAM MOFFAT   GEORGE SNEDDEN/AGNES MOFFAT FR559 (FR559)   06/10/1850   Lochmaben
SNEDDON   MARY   GEORGE SNEDDON/AGNES MOFFAT FR562 (FR562)   04/07/1852   Lochmaben
SNEDDON   ELIZABETH  GEORGE SNEDDON/AGNES MOFFAT FR565 (FR565)   04/06/1854   Lochmaben

And these from the Statutory Records 1855-65 in Lochmaben

SNEDDEN   AGNES   1856   Lochmaben Landward   
SNEDDEN   JANE   1858   Lochmaben   
SNEDDEN   ROBINA   1859   Lochmaben   
SNEDDEN   AMELIA   1861   Lochmaben

Hi again, I did what you suggested but all the info I could find were of the parents and location as well as the date of the birth. No extra info were available. This is rather baffling...

@DonM I'm beginning to think that George Jnr may be a mistake and might be meant for another sneddon family.

Twaddles and Wrights from County Longford, Ireland.

Birth Date    18 Oct 1866
Birthplace    KIRKPATRICK JUXTA,DUMFRIES,SCOTLAND

ADDED: Given the gap between Amelia in 1861 and George Jnr...he must have been a surprise baby  ::)

SP is pay to view so you would have to buy credits to view the original images there. 7 would let you view 5 original images online (30 credits).

Monica as always you are a star. 

I never thought to look for the accident after having all those children.

I did pay for them but the info is vague. I'll post some on here and see what you think.

It also never has occurred to me that George Jr was a surprise baby! Don't know if I feel sorry for poor Agnes or not!
