Grierson family from Balmaclellan
« on: Monday 22 October 12 17:32 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am trying to find out details about  a John Grierson, who is listed on the 1861 census for Strathaven, Lanarkshire as being born in Balmaclellan. He was 66 in 1861 so would have been born in about 1795. I wondered if anyone has any details.

In 1861 - he is 66 and wife Janet is 35 - likely marriage here https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XTTZ-69M

In 1851 he is 58 and Janet is 25

In 1841 there is a 75yr old Agnes Grierson living with him who could possibly be his mother

As he died after 1855 - have you checked his death on Scotlands People as it will give his parents names and mothers maiden name
