Armed Forces / Census in the army
« on: Friday 12 February 10 16:23 GMT (UK)  »
Did the army take census' when stationed abroad? Excuse my ignorance.

I'm trying to find Private 1783 James Logan in the 1851 census & again as a Sergeant in the 1861 census.

He was with the 92nd Gordon Highlanders. According to a history of the regiment that I found on-line, they left Ireland on 5/3/1951 for the Ionian Islands. They were in India until 1863.

James was born in 1825 in Govan, Renfrewshire.

Any help would be appreciated.

East Lothian (Haddingtonshire) / Logan family - East Lothian
« on: Wednesday 03 February 10 17:27 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone recognise this Logan family from the 1991 census at Prestonkirk, East Linton?

David Logan     Head  aged 54
Helen Logan     wife   aged 54
Thomas Logan Barley Miller aged 18
John Logan      Rural Postman aged 15
Helen Logan    Scholar aged 12

The older children (David, Alexander, Margaret and James had left home at this stage)
The census claims that Thomas, John and Helen were born in East Linton but there is no record of them on Scotland's People. 
David (father) states he was born in Paisley but again no record. The only one I can trace is Helen (wife) who was born in Edinburgh.

Any help would be appreciated.

Midlothian / East Preston Street Burial Ground, Edinburgh
« on: Monday 12 October 09 19:32 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone have the "Lothians MI - East Preston Street Burial Grounds, Edinburgh 1 fiche"? If so would they be good enough to look up a MI for me -
James Stewart
died 4/4/1858

Midlothian / Death - James Stewart
« on: Friday 09 October 09 16:50 BST (UK)  »
I am stumped and wonder if anyone can help me find a death certificate for James Stewart or suggest a line to follow.

James Stewart married Margaret MCNaughton 3/1/1845 in Edinburgh.
According to the birth certs of their children James (1846), John (1847) and Jane (1849) and the 1841 census he was a printer. He was born in Midlothian around 1815 (1841 census he was 26) I'm hoping a death certificate will help me there.

At the 1871 census Margaret was a widow living in Edinburgh describing herself as "formerly a printer's wife" so his death was prior to that and post the 1848 conception of Jane.

Any help would be appreciated.

Can anyone help me find a birth entry for a William Gordon in Canada around 1772/1773? His death cert claims he was born at Brilar Julyer, Canada but I've looked on the www and there is no such place. Sorry, I have no other informaton other that he returned to Scotland around 1885.
