Hi Michelle

Welcome to rootschat.

Looking at the 1861 census you will see that there is another son, John, born 1855 and also that the place of birth for Thomas and the children is given as Ancroft.

Go to 1841 census for Ancroft and you will find Thomas Young age 23 still living with parents and siblings. His parents names are William and Isabella which fits nicely with the names of his children.

Can you confirm that his wife's maiden name was Grey?

I have followed these people from their daughter Mary Ann who consistently gives her place of birth as Edinburgh and names her father as James when she married.

There are 4 potential siblings in Edinburgh (names provided by Forfarian), two of whom died there in infancy, so I can place them in that area between 1829 and 1838.  Before 1829 there does not seem to be any sign of them there but James was an Ag Lab so probably moved around a lot.  I havenít been able to link Janet born Ednam 1823 to them yet but she is on my list.

James died in 1856 and is buried in Warkworth, Northumberland.

The family were in England by 1841 so most census records simply give Scotland as place of birth.  This clue on the 1861 for Janet is the only possible lead I have.

Also this is not my family.  I am researching for a friend who can no longer see well enough to do her own research.  We met on a genealogy course about 20 years ago when online research was very limited so this part of her family was left unexplored.  I am trying not to play fast and loose with her cash so am hoping to be reasonably certain before I use up SP credits.

Thank you all for your suggestions and guidance.  I will now follow them  up and see where they lead.

This place of birth is taken from the 1861 census in Amble, Northumberland for Janet Richardson (nee Scott).  Ancestry have transcribed it as Briglands, FindMyPast have made no attempt at all and Iím struggling to find any location which might fit.

Does anyone have any idea, please?

The Common Room / Re: CARN cards to be phased out
« on: Monday 09 March 20 23:29 GMT (UK)  »
Why do they need the photograph, I wonder.  Is there a high incidence of people accessing the archives using someone else's card?

I have reservations about yet another database holding my personal details as well as a photograph. 
We do not know how secure this will be.

Northumberland / Re: Thomas Richardson abt 1804 Rothbury
« on: Monday 09 March 20 23:14 GMT (UK)  »
Excellent news  :D  That puts his birth year back to 1804-05 so I'm still inclined to think that Thomas baptised in Gosforth 1798 could be an earlier Thomas.

It's definiely building up a good picture though
