I have a Robert Finlay son of Robert and Isabella (Gill).   His birth in the OPR is shown as 7 August 1841 (Galashiels).    However in the 1841 census (June) he is shown with his mother as Robert Gill aged 10 months.   Robert and Isabella appear to have been married in Gala on 26 November 1841.  I just cannot see any other Robert/Isabellas in Scotland at all.   Have I got the correct families??? and could the OPR be wrong, could they have registered the birth in 1841 and the date has been wrongly entered???
