A maybe for son Alexander from 1861:

Alexander Potter
Birth Date    21 Oct 1859
Birthplace    EDINBURGH PARISH
Father's Name    James Potter
Mother's Name    Isabella Johnston

Monica

I think you are right Monica.   I peeked at the image and the address was Campbell  Close, Cannongate which was the street Isabella and family were living at in 1861!  Informant Elizabeth Johnston - Aunt??

I can't see a baptism for Susan as Crew or Ogilivie and I wonder who was the father of Isabella's youngest son Alexander??   :-\

What names do you have for children of Amelia SPENCER and Alexander McNEILL?

This is a snip of the family in the 1911 census which I looked at yesterday. Alex listed as born Glasgow

Wow -Brilliant sleuthing and what an incredible family

Just to tidy up Stewart Olgilvie - He died in 1852 and by the look of the snips attached he was killed by an accident on the railway

Couldn't resist checking the 1881 death for Isabella.   Looks perfect and on the other part the informant was daughter Susan - of 8 Beaumont Place!

Struggling to find them after 1851 can't find a death for a Stewart Ogilvie so possibly died before 1855 there is a death for a Isabella Oglivie other name Johnston died 1881 age 61 which would fit with both being deceased before Susan marriage another to check when I get more credits so it doesn't appear she remarried if it's her
Maybe just looking to hard

I think this is Isabella (on the image listed as a widow) and family in 1861 - living in Canongate with daughter Susan - did she lie  about her age??? :-\

Isabella Ogilvie    36 b Dunbar
James Ogilvie    14
Elizabeth Ogilvie 12
Susan Ogilvie    8
Alexander Ogilvie 18 Mo
