Hi Dawn,
I am stiill looking for my elusive James Murray & son John
age about 20 years in 1841.

Can you find a John Murray in 1841?
Perhaps living with James Murray & Isobel & children in Scotts Place

If so, I wonder where they were all born if stated in county or outside.

I understand another John is with Nicols family similar age.

Also looking for John's future wife Helen Moffat age would be about  25

Thanks Dawn, hope that you can help.
Cheers

Dear Dawn,

Thank you for this, have just found it again and discovered your reply.

Those Murrays were quite elusive however it does seem that this is the correct one. 

Shall hunt now for Helen Murray (Moffat)

Regards
Sandie

Hi again

went to the Laterday Saint church today and looked on their computer as they subscribe to ancestry.com.  Plugged in Nicholas Swanston and she came up right away as being born in Galashiels, Selkirk  on May 25, 1843.  Her father John Swanston also shows up as being born 8 May 1808 in the Galashiels region of Selkirk.  His parents are Andrew and Isabel Swanston.  Her maiden name is Beck.  She often went by Betty Beck and is from the Dumfries area.  Would you be able to check the 1841 census for Andrew and Isabel Swanston in the Galashiels region of Selkirk and if John wasn't married yet he would show up in their household as a young man.  I am hoping that possible brothers may be Andrew, George and Walter.  These are the other families that lived in the same area and George and Walter list their father as Andrew on their respective marriages.

Thanks for your time

Susan

Hi,
I haven't got the 1841 census for Galashiels, its just for Selkirk.
If you type in 'Graham and Emma Maxwell' into a search engine you will find that they have actually transcribed the 1841 census for Galashiels and other area's in the Borders of Scotland, and it also gives a list of surnames in each area.
Thats were i get them from.
Sorry i couldn't help further.

I have a Janet Hogg born Ettrick married to a William Paterson (Patterson).  They had a son Peter Patterson born 24/10/1837 Ettrick  Is Janet and William on the 1841 census.  Their son Peter was with his grandparents on the 1841 and 1851 census.

Kind regards

Hi Isobel,
I've had a look and there are a few William Patersons on the census but none of them are married to a Janet Paterson.
I checked the 1841 for Selkirk and the 1851 for Selkirk and Galashiels.
