Could really use some help please...
« on: Wednesday 22 November 17 02:53 GMT (UK) »
 ???
Hoping someone can advise me on the details of the extract attached it relates to my 3 x G Grandparents and both their parents also as there is very little i can actually make sense of. Being still fairly new to Genealogy its the first difficulty of this nature i have had but its will not be the last as i go farther back so any advice would be most appreciated

 thanks Amanda

My reading of most of it.
31st Dec 1868 at 35 Abbotsford Place according to the Forms? of the Reformed Presbyterian Church
John McDougall shoemaker (journeyman) Bachelor age 21 of 56 Cavendish Street Glasgow Father Alexander McDougall Master mariner deceased.
Mother Agnes McDougall Maiden surname McPhee deceased.
bride is
Ann Kinnell age 23. (she made her mark X evidently illiterate.) I can't read what it says under this.
 56 Cavendish Street Glasgow Father Robert Kinnell Coachman Domestic ?? Deceased. Mother Ann Kinnell Maiden surname Jamieson? (you have cut it off a little.)
Signed John McDermid Minister of the Reformed Presbyterian Church. Witnesses signed Edward Little and Margaret Gillies
Others will either confirm and add to it or shoot me down in flames ;)

It's:  Coachman, Domestic Servant

The last red line ends Powerloom Weaver.

I'm not sure of the first word of that line.  It may be a number - age?

I don't think it is 'age' (not in this context). . .but it does look like ninety - ( - or wincey.)   

Guessing here, but could it denote the size of the powerloom?   Or the type of cloth being woven e.g. wincyette??    :-\ :-\

I  think you are right Wiggy  - there are a couple of mentions of a Wincey Powerloom Weaver on the net.
