hi thanks dawn ,
the john scott born abt 1840 is related to another scott family, and i have just realised that i shouldn't have asked for a lookup on him as i already have him in 1851,sorry abt that he's listed at ladhope 1851 living with his mother and stepfather,thomas murray and elizabeth scott.  ihaven't worked out yet whether elizabeth married another scott and had john scott son or whether he was illegimate. Elizabeth scott was the daughter of james scott land steward, and ann blyth they were also in the 1851 census. living at easter langlee from memory. are there any scott's listed in the census that where born yarrow.

Hi Kate,

If you have the 1851 census for Selkirk, could you please lookup a family by the name of MURRAY?

John MURRAY age about 30; born 1821-1823 in Selkirk.
married Helen MOFFAT in Selkirk -Banns Innerleithen in 1851

Helen's daughter Helen should be about 6-7 years old (from previous marriage.) Helen MOFFAT was aged about 35  in 1851.

I am trying to locate their address and also John's father James MURRAY.  John's mother Elizabeth HALL died in 1821-23 circa so James Murray probably married again.

If John & Helen are not in the 1851 census then the marriage (also 1851) probably took place later in the year, so I am wondering who John was living with prior to his marriage to Helen Moffat, and also if there were any brothers & sisters.

A son of the above couple named William Murray born 1855 in Selkirk married Elizabeth Lees born 1859. They were my GG Grandparents.

Thank you

Sandie
