I think the Archibald in the 1841 Census might, as you say, be too young. He shows with a birth year of 1816-18 in the English Censuses.

There is this submitted entry on IGI which probably relates to him,with really no additional info:

Archibald Baird  - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Male Birth: 1816 , Ayr, Scotland - Death 11 JAN 1873 

And of FreeBmd, a possible death entry for him:

Deaths Mar 1873: Baird    Archibald    57    Wetherby    9a   91

Only two children showing for Archibald and Mary in the Censuses and IGI, Emily and Archibald which doesn't help with possible clues re parents' names.

Smithy, maybe the way forward is to try and at least verify his father's name through his marriage entry, from FreeBmd:

Marriages Jun 1845:     Baird    Archibald        Sleaford    14   969

There is one entry on the OPRs that might fit:

24/06/1818   BAIRD   ARCHIBALD   JOHN BAIRD/HELLEN WATSON FR574   M   Mauchline   /AYR   604/ 0030 0114

This is the closest I can see with the revised birth year for Archibald on the 1841 index with the surname transcription slightly off, and the usual rounding down to the neares 5 years for the 1841 census. Given his age, it's not surprising he looks to be working away from home:

Archibald Barad, 20-24, gardner, b. Scotland

Address: Erchless, Kiltarlity, Inverness shire

Hi Everybody,
In the 1851 Census, Archibald was 33yrs old which makes his D.O.B approx 1818 give or take a few years, free BMD doesn't go back that far.
I really appreciate your help, it's fantastic.

Hi Smithy

FreeBMD relates purely to English/Welsh records not Scottish, you won't find anything there relating to your Archibald's birth details. You may find there details/refs. for his marriage (it shows on IGI as a submitted entry).

The 1818 OPR entry I posted as a possible for Archibald is on the official pay to view site Scotlands People www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk which covers Scottish records only. It's the only possible entry I could see coming up in Ayrshire. That, together with the possible 1841 census entry in Kitarlity, is all I could see for Archibald before he left for England.

As suggested, I think you need to try and verify at least Archbald's father's name, probably by trying to find his marriage record in Sleaford in 1845.

Regards.

Monica  :)
