William Brown and Rebecca Armour. How would I find the Irish Board???

Glad you are good at the English records - you were a big help with the earlier censuses. A big pat on the back for that!  :  )

 :D Found her death record!!! She died in Bridgeton in 1873. But her her age was 54!!! Talk about a swing in dates - wow. Cheers for your help (and interest). Are you tied to my line? If so, please feel free to PM me.

I totally agree with you about the inconsistencies. Margaret (Thomas McAulay's wife) is of a different age based on every document I found. It's crazy, but such is the world of record keeping. You had asked which ancestor I was descended from - I don't believe I answered that, since I actually didn't see that question until now. Thomas and Margaret (nee Brown) McAulay had another daughter named Elizabeth. She married a Joseph Murphy. That is my line.

I spent many hours sorting out the children last night. But today, I need to find that death record on Thomas's wife. I think we have the general dates right. Keep your fingers crossed! The sad part in all of this, however, is that finding that record will give me what I was looking for (hopefully) - Margaret's parents' names. But that will only bring me back to Northern Ireland, as with Thomas McAulay, and it will be a dead end given that there are almost no records left for that period in time.

Still trying to track down Margaret (wife of Thomas). Figuring her death is after 1869, given that she is still alive at the time of Thomas' death.

And then that would account for Thomas' son. It seems like a proper match - I mean, you expect there to be some inconsistencies given that none of the older records are perfect, right? I hope we're right - so many Margarets!

I think the 1871 census might actually be right. You are correct in saying that ages are a bit off, but I'm finding that with everything. I think thta is her, but then she moved from High Church to elsewhere before she died.

Located the 1851 record - a few thoughts. While occupation matches, as well as birth place, the age of off by about 6 years. It also says "family visiting" - so he was visiting family in Scotland and left the family back in NI? Hmm. Hard call - a 50-50 shot.

Although...age at 1871 census is most likely not my Margaret. The 1861 census is the correct one.

At first glance, that was exciting, but you're right - I don't think that is my family. But I'm going to try to track down original on SP for the first link you sent, as well as what you found for the deaths.
