I have found a death record, in 1918, for an Alexander Macrae, aged 66 years, who died in Pulteney Street, a single pauper. He must have been illegitimate because only his father, Philip Macrae is mentioned on the death certificate. The death was registered by D Ross, Inspector of Poor.

That doesn't make much sense- if father is listed on death certificate then why do you think he was illegitimate. The most likely reason for no mother listed is that the informant didn't have that information.

Still cannot find Alexander in 1861 but found Alexandrina/Lexy McKenzie living in Market Street with mother Mary McRae ( whose age has been transcribed as 80 here). Had to laugh... Alexandrina has been transcribed as Sexy McKenzie!

I'm getting more and more confused..........

In the 1871 census, Lexy Mackenzie, aged 40, unmarried, born 1831 in Ullapool, is the head of the house in Market Street, Ullapool.

Also in the house are:

Mary Macrae, aged 60, unmarried, born 1811 in Ulapool.
Alexander Macrae, aged 16, unmarried, born 1855 in Plymouth.
and a lodger.

I cannot find any record for a birth in Plymouth for an Alexander Macrae.

Harking back to the death record for Alexander Macrae, when it is stated that he was the son of a Philip Macrae, a deceased sailor.

I cannot find any record for a birth or death for a Philip Macrae.

I have however found an 1851 census record, in 43 George Street, East Stonehouse - which is an area of Plymouth.

On this census are:
Mary Ann Macrae, head, aged 49, seaman's wife - born in Thurlston, Devon.
Philip GA Macrae, son, aged 11 - born East Stonehouse, Devon.

If the Alexander Macrae that I am trying to find out more about was 66 years old, when he died in 1918, he must have been born about 1852, so Philip Macrae couldn't have been his father....but then there's the Plymouth connection??????

What on earth am I looking at? Where do I go from here?

I am totally confused.

Hello Heilanlassie,
     On 1851 Census, Mary Ann Macrae is listed as Head & Seaman's Wife. Not a widow so presumably hubby is away at sea. Could her husband be a Phillip Macrae, born Scotland? Their son Phillip is 11yrs old. Son Alexander born approx. 1yr after Census. Mary Ann either dies or can't cope with 'lunatic' son so he goes to live with Phillip Snr's family in Scotland?
     Could be Lexie & Phillip Snr are siblings, both children of elderly Mary Macrae?
     Lots of theories & checking to do. Good luck with you search.
               Regards,     Dod.
