Willowbank Crescent, Glasgow
« on: Monday 12 February 18 19:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi all from Ireland

Not familiar with what Glasgow info is available online, but would love to know who exactly was living at No. 18 Willowbank Crescent around 1911-15.

Is there a 1911 census that's free to view online? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

LH

In 1915, Valuation Rolls....   18 Willowbank Crescent:

Mary Dunlop
Alex Farris
Thomas Logan
Wilhelmina McDougall
Neil McSween
Thomas Malley
Gavin Pettigrew
Lizzie Robertson
George Williamson

Each name will be the Head of each family.      Possibly, this is a tenement as there are a lot of different surnames at this address.       Are any of these names familiar to you?

Hi

Thanks for your reply.

None of the names ring any bells with me but I will check with other family members today.

Do you happen to know if the 1911 census is freely searchable anywhere online?

Kindest regards

I think Scotlands People is the only place for that, but it costs a few credits.       What is the name of the person you are looking for?

Many thanks for all this info.

I'm asking on behalf of another family member, who has a photo of a lady, on the back of which is written - but hard to decipher - "?? Alexander".  Then below this is the address, which is clear enough.

I've just come across something on the net mentioning an "Alexander M'Lean" at that address, but I wonder who he is and what the connection was.  Maybe the writing on the photo is "To Alexander"...

Doesn't sound like an Irish name, does it.   I'd guess at Scottish, so wonder did he have an Irish wife?

Kindest regards

You do find Irish Macleans, often spelled McClean but Alexander Maclean sounds Scottish enough!.

Skoosh.

In 1908 and 1909, there is a Margaret McLean living at number 18, and in 1910 there is a Thomas McLean and an Algernon W. S. McLean.      In 1914, there is an Alexander McSween, a Traveller.

Perhaps Alexander McLean in your photo was visiting Margaret McLean, Thomas or Algernon.    If he was only visiting for a short period of time, he would probably not show up on any records.

My information comes from Ancestry's Glasgow Elecetoral Registers.

   I have just discovered an Alexander Mclean living at 18 Willowbank Crescent from at least 1886 up to 1899.       He appears on the lists as a Grain Merchant.
