Scotland / 1841 census my only hope
« on: Saturday 05 November 05 22:52 GMT (UK)  »
This is driving me balmy.  I'm trying to find the recorded births of a whole family.
Their name is Lochart (Lockhart), James and Christina nee McKelvie(Christian)born 1791 Kilmory Isle of Araan.  They were married in Ayr Ayrshire on 29 Nov 1811.
Leslie may have lived Isle of Mann
Catherine married James Neilson 1845 Gorbals Lanark
Agnes married John Stevenson Gorbals Lanark
Mary born c1823 came to NZ with mother by then a widow.
Janet born c1825 came to NZ with mother
Isabella Ferrier born c1832 came to NZ with mother
I think I need a miracle or the 1841 census as they arrived in NZ Nov 1851.
Much thanks for any help with this. I've searched physically the IGI and OPR and on the internet and on Scotlands people site.

Isle of Man Lookup Requests / Lockart early to mid1800's
« on: Wednesday 05 October 05 08:07 BST (UK)  »
Could any let me know who Leslie Lockart was.  I spotted him on an Isle of Mann page about 1865 and now can't find the page again.
The family I'm interested in and which he may be part of is
Father James Lockart married Ayr Aryshire to
Mother Christina (Christian) nee McKelvie born 1796 Kilmory Isle of Aran
Agnes married Stevenson
Katherine married James Neilson
Isabel Ferrier

I can't find them anywhere until 1851 then find Christian, Mary, Janet and Isabel en route to New Zealand on the 'Simlah'.
Thank you (It's a cold night in NZ)

Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Re: Laxton pre 1840 marriage lookup HOLMES
« on: Monday 26 September 05 11:39 BST (UK)  »
Thanks very much Heather,
Since posting this request, I've had a reply from someone who turns out to be related.
She says Samuels parents are Samuel and Sarah.  Samuel born 27.10.1811 in Nottingham. Wife Sarah was Sarah Lamling/Lammaman born 24.10.1810 where? Father Abraham Lammaman mother Elizabeth Hamstone Spalding.
Samuel and Sarah were married 5.6.1831 in Gainsbrough Lincolnshire.
Their children she said included Thomas 7.1.1838 born Shelford.

This is great information but I'll have to prove it.  Really, I'm so amazed at your help and the help from the new family.
I'd be grateful if you could look at this new information in any records you have to see if it looks ok.

Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Laxton pre 1840 marriage lookup HOLMES
« on: Monday 26 September 05 10:16 BST (UK)  »
Samuel Holmes and Sarah from Nottinghamshire.  Sarah may be a widow with son George.
Samuel and Sarah plus George and William immigrated to Australia as bounty immigrants on the 'Champion' 5th of Oct 1840. William was six, George was nine. The shipping information suggests they were from Layton which I've interpreted as Laxton because I found a William born to a Samuel and Sarah on the IGI for 7 April 1834 at Laxton. A Hannah was born to them as well, though she didn't make the ship.
Would love to know more although I will be going to order the parish films from the LDS

Ayrshire / Robert Hannah 1851 census lookup please
« on: Saturday 17 September 05 10:24 BST (UK)  »
Robert Hannah christened 1815 Liverpool married Elizabeth Barton born 1819 from Lancashire, marriage not found yet.  They both died in Glasgow.  I have found a reference to a Robert and Elizabeth on the South Scottish 1851 census.  Robert aged 37, Elizabeth 33 and Margaret 13. Since I know they had two boys, Robert Stuart Hannah age 11 and Stitt Chrichton Hannah age 8 who should be with them but are not, could someone tell me an address since there was very little information on the Cd.  The reference is 596/34/15/10/255926 for Robert.

Thanks for looking that up.  The babies grandfather was a master baker but I can't make a direct connection with this lot.

Ann Kelly born C1810 to Mike Kelly and Mary Clarke. Ann married John Costello from Borracshill in 1840 and took a boat to Sydney Australia.

Would anyone know of these Kellys and Clarkes in Dorrah?

Great, thanks, I'm not sure of any connection. 
The baby was born at No. 203 Cold Harbour Lane. Who was living there on the 1881 census?
