I must apologise, I didnít see your post above, sorry. It would have saved me sometime, as Iíve just spent time looking for Ann in 91, thankfully I got your last reply before I spent credits for the wrong Anns. Thanks again!

Thanks Forfarian, appreciated the help. Through your advice I tried SP again, and I believe Donald Snr is perhaps deceased as I think Iíve found wife Ann with Children that were there in 71. Now to find Donaldís death cert.

Cheers,

Hi thanks for looking. The 1851 family I believe is correct is the one in Bruan Mission, that is working back from the 1871 where I found one of their children who is my ancestor. From 71 I found out Donald was born Kildonan, Sutherland.

I believe that the 81 census has Donald alone, age 67 (dob 1814 in Kildonan) a crofter of 3 acres.

Cheers

Thanks Forfarian. Am I correct that FS did used to have the LDS transcriptions? I managed to find it on Ancestry though (I think).

If itís not too much trouble I was looking for the Sutherland family Donald and Ann(e) of Latheron, Caithness in 51 and 71 he was born Kildonan, Sutherland, in 61 it was Ragnan, Caithness. Various dates of birth 1817 to 1819. Ann is reported born various Caithness. If I have found the correct family It looks like Donald is now on his own, but now born 1814?

Thanks

Aberdeenshire / Re: Robert Watson and Margaret Chalmers

Thankyou. Seems there were another few children after Elizabeth too. Maybe the marriage record for Robert Watson and Margaret Chalmers is not around anymore for some reason. A real mystery couple.

Hi please see my post https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=195562.msg972337#msg972337

I may have found out a wee bit more since posting, Iíll have check my records.

Scotland / Missing 1881 census , Familysearch/SP ?
« on: Saturday 10 October 20 14:48 BST (UK)  »
Hi can anyone advise please, Iím obviously doing something stupid, but I canít find the 1881 scotland census on family Search. On SP the 1881 option is not available, the tick box being shaded out with (LDS). Yet I canít find it on Family Search. The area I was looking for is not available in Ď81 On FreeCen.

The Lighter Side / Re: Connection between tragic incident and court case?
« on: Sunday 16 August 20 11:32 BST (UK)  »
The story of the drowning of 3 youths of Bredon in a boating accident on the Avon that I am sure must have had a bearing on the court case. Two of the three drowned youths were a Wagstaff and a Stephens. I later managed to find the Wagstaff was Thomas, 18 year old son of John (I have yet to find the forename of Stephens - and his likely close relationship to Cornelius).

Perhaps the Stephens surname is a co-incidence and there is no connection between the drowned youth and Cornelius.

I found Thomas Wagstaff when I had a subscription to Findmypast, and it gave me details (his age, burial info), unfortunately my Ancestry subscription gives little detail in comparison. Could some kind soul with FindMyPast do a look-up for a May 1835 death in Worcestershire for Stephens (other youth was Trapp) please?

Update on Ancestry found Daniel Trap (same church, day after Thomas burial) but no Stephens.

Hello jbml,

A very interesting fact, I wonder what date this was repealed? Certainly it is not enforced nowadays if it is still one. But if it were still in force in 1831 perhaps the Stephenís lad (still to find his relationship to Cornelius) may have been another apprentice to John Wagstaff, after Cornelius? And Johnís son Thomas an apprentice to another Blacksmith.

Unfortunately the original cuttings posted have disappeared.

Hello Sante,

Sorry I canít help with the birth of George.

But can I just add a note of caution that perhaps that John and Ann (Nancy) may not be his parents. The ages in 1841 were rounded down to 60 and 55 respectively, (strangely in 1851 they are 70 and 71); so Iím suggesting that perhaps they may have been too old in 1831 to have George. He may be a grandson for instance.
