1841 Census Lookup - Rachel McLEOD
« on: Sunday 18 January 15 23:53 GMT (UK) »
Rachel McLEOD b. abt 1832 Ross and Cromarty

Sister Isabella born 1830 Ross and Cromarty - parents Angus and Catharine

I don't know if it's Catharine McDONALD or BETHUNE.

I'd like a look up please for Rachel in 1841. Failing that, a look up please for Angus and family in 1851.

Thanks,

Fred

Hello Colin,

Thank you very much.  There are 2x Angus & Catherine. Not sure yet if there are 2x Isabella. If only one then it's the right family.

Mary must have been 19 rounded down to 15 in 1841 and then 30 in 1851.

Rachel married 12 Dec 1853 in Glasgow and died in Australia 13 Aug 1909 aged 77. Death reg only has her father as Angus with no details for her mother.
