William Young and Mary Duff marriage Glasgow 1817
« on: Wednesday 08 January 14 07:25 GMT (UK) »
Hi - we are looking for this family but finding it difficult to track them down in the 1841 census. From what we know the children were born Robert John William & a Mary born between 1817 and 1831.  Can anyone help please?
We believe William may have been a plumber.  Mary's maiden name was Duff.

Hi Westee and welcome to Rootschat,
Can I ask, have you found William and Mary Young on the 1851 Census?
Looby :)

Hi again,
Looks like this might be the family you're looking for. I found them on the Freecen website.
William has been recorded as the abbreviation Wm. So that's what you'd have to put in the search boxes to find him ::) Wm Young.-

This family are living at Park Holm, Govan

   YOUNG       Wm       M       40       Plumber        Outside Census County (1841)           
  YOUNG       Mary       F       40               Outside Census County (1841)           
 YOUNG       John       M       15       Engineer Apprentice        Outside Census County (1841)           
 YOUNG       Robt       M       11               Outside Census County (1841)           
 GARDNER       Margaret       F       20       Female Servant        Outside Census County (1841)           
 
There is no son William or daughter Mary listed and the family are recorded as all being born outside Lanarkshire (but that could have been an error).

Hope this helps,
Looby :)

Amended- Having another look at this family and having looked at the births for the family of William and Mary Young on Familysearch website , I'm now not so sure this is the people you are looking for....

Yes, yes yes.  I am fairly sure that is the family.  Thanks so much.
But no, I haven't found them on 1851 census.  Will look for him under Wm.
Can you help with this as well?

Just checking my notes.  William was born 1825 and Mary 1827.   :)

I thought this might be 1851:

Mary Young 53 Annuitant
John Young 27 Brassfounder (master Employing 6 Men)
Wm Young 26 Plumber (master Employing 8 Men)
Ann Gragham 19 servant

Address: 430 Argyll St, Glasgow

Which of the children of William and Mary are following back?

I think the first Mary b. 1827 https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FM9F-WM4 may have died young as there is a potential second Mary b. 1831 (who likely died young too as she didn't show in the entry Looby has posted?) https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FMSV-FYY

You might want to check a possible Will & Testament entry (an inventory from what is indexed I think) from Scotlands People www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk which shows:

William Young 21 Nov 1845 Plumber and Lead Merchant at Glasgow. Inventory @ Glasgow Sheriff Court Ref SC36/48/31 - 9 pages.

Thanks so very much.  Very interesting and now have to look at the Wills.  We were following William and thought that he had moved down to London.  So maybe not our family. But will check it all out tomorrow, Wills etc.  The family was in the engineering trade so there has to be some connection.  Must get to bed now as it is just after 11pm.
