I have found them on the 1851 and 1861 census, but I cannot find them in 1871.
George I believe dies in 1878 Jedburgh.
George's occupation is given in one form or another as being a Court Sheriff / Messenger at arms.

If anyone can help fill in the missing pieces, 1871 census, marriage to Isabella Scott and when Isabella Scott dies I would be most grateful.
