Are you aware of the journal for the "Duncan" in 1838?

Just an afterthought. Remember that ages were rounded down in the 1841 census.
Not a bad idea to use the "soundex" to pick up any spelling variations.

All original census records can be obtained at Scotlands People. The only place you will see the original records.

I would suggest you look on FreeCen which has very good coverage of the Renfrewshire census. Free and very easy to look up.

I'll get you started with Isabella Hunter at Mansion House Lane in 1841

Neale, what makes you think Sabina was born 1841 in birmingham?
Information from the 1861 census - previously posted.

I wouldn’t worry about the spelling of Maisey. There was not uniform spelling until very modern times. Names were written as they sounded when spoken, so you will get all sorts of variations - Massey, Mays, Mezey, etc. When Robert Maisey married in 1821, he signed his name with that spelling.


From the information you have so far, Sabina was born 1841 in Birmingham, and her father was James, a bricklayer.  The birth you have found in 1854 Norfolk is not her.

link for James Maisey 1861 census in Birmingham

His wife’s name is Eliza, (nee Basingthwaite),  but has been mis-transcribed here.

Do you know that you don’t have to order the birth certificates.
They are available for immediate download at the cost of 2.50

Please just use the reply button. Quoting large sections of text which have previously been posted and read, makes the whole thread confusing and difficult to follow.

Eliza Moreton looks to be unmarried in the 1871 census, but living 2 doors away were members of the Mays family from Yarmouth.  (William age 17, James Massey's son, and James' widow, Eliza)
