Help finding death date - Mary STEEL
« on: Wednesday 22 July 15 18:02 BST (UK) »
Hello

I am currently looking for a death date for Mary Steel, daughter of Thomas and Eleanor Steel at Stapleton, Cumberland.

Looking at the records, I found a entry from the 1851 Scottish census, a Mary Steel aged 73, wife of Thomas Thomson, living in Newcastleton, Roxburghshire.

Her home county is given as Stableton, Cumberland, which I assume is Stapleton, Cumberland

This could be her, though I cannot access the image on Scotlandspeople to see if its a transcription error

Any help proving or denying if this Mary in the census entry is the same Mary born in 1778 Stapleton would be greatly appreciated

thanks

Hi ,

Another transcription here -
http://www.maxwellancestry.com/census/51transcript.aspx?houseid=78411005

http://www.freecen.org.uk/  transcription also has it as Stapleton.

Not sure why you can't access the original image on SP ?

thanks ev

Cannot access it due to a ActiveX filtering issue, some people have had it before.

It looks like Mary married Thomson, so her death would come under that name

Have you tried the direct download option ?

Looks like Thomas was widowed by 1861 -

There is a death record here that could be her, since the age is quite accurate and the name Turnbull is mentioned, which was the name of her mother.

2 1856 STEEL MARY STEEL TURNBULL F 79 JOHNSTONE (RENFREW) /RENFREW 559/03 0044

No indication of a Thomson though and I am not sure how far Renfrew is from Castleton

I would think that is not the record you are after. Turnbull , I think , would be the married or maiden name on that record.

There is a Mary Thomson death 1855 Castleton Roxburgh , born c1774 , however the Steel surname is not showing  :-\

It may be that Mary Steel on the 1851 Census died before 1855 , the start of the statutory records ?

Thomas died in 1862 in Roxburgh by the looks of it

Checked if there was a Mary Steele a Mary Steel, a Mary Thomson and a Mary Thompson whom died between 1851 and 1861, looks like she may have died between 1851 and 1854.

Just ran out of credits too  :(

There are five possibilities between 1851 and 1854 for Mary Steel, but none for Castleton.

They are living with a granddaughter in 1851, a Mary Elliot, means they had children
