I've found discrepancies in adult ages can be significant.  Sometimes you can make sense of it through age mother would be when she gave birth.  Since we will hope that Mary wasn't 12 when she gave birth to James, you can assume that her age was wildly off in the 1841 census. 

The other ages line up well.  Seem like they had a boarder in 1841 and a young servant living with them in 1851. 

(I always imagine the census taker asking the youngest and least reliable child in the family how old everyone is.  Most kids have no idea how old their parents are and '30' could sound as old to them as '40'.)

Thanks for the responses everyone.

@GR2 - Do you think then, it's possible for them to be the same family?



I'm new to this site and I happened to come across your post. Don't know if it will help in any way but Welltress Square was only built in the early 1970's after the towns tannery was demolished. There was a Welltrees Street. Maybole has a very good web site of their own and there are plenty of people who would be willing to help.

If it is such a small place it may only have one church. So researching if the BMDs have been transcribed anywhere should pick up all the Clydes in the area. You should start with the local Record Office as well as the county section on here.

Hello Peter
Im jumping on board this old post because Id like to confirm that it is the same family
I dont know if the mother is the same woman tho .1 tree on Ancestry has Archibald's wife as  Mary Murphy born in Ireland

Im related thru the loom weaver  daughter Isabella CLYDE
She married David Blain b 1825 Maybole Aryshire

Their daughter Mary was my great grandmother .
