There is a John Crawford born 1835 Glasgow age 26 occupation nailer
Lodging with a Margaret Monaghan age 64 born Ireland  and her family 34,Walkinshaw Street Johnstone Paisley
Might be a possibility on the 1861 ...But no more further with finding the right parent's I'm afraid  ???

Thanks to you both.

I saw that to Rosie - is a nailer similar to a slater in terms of occupation? Maybe he started makings nails then moved on to being a slater. A slater uses nail!!

John Crawford, 25, Slater, born King, Newton Moven's of Meares
That looks really bizarre. Can you post an extract from the image so we can see if we can make sense of the birthplace?

Maybe John b c 1832 was illegitimate? Could he be in an earlier census as John McGovern?

Yes they seem to be in Kilsyth.

he didn't marry. Children John born 1867 and others have a date and place of marriage but I have never found it.
Marriage place always Glasgow

What date and place did it give for the parents marriage ?
