Archies Age ?
« on: Sunday 23 June 19 18:59 BST (UK) »
Evening all,

I've pondered over this one for a few days but am lost.

How old is Archibald Morrison ?

Thanks in advance.

(ps thinking 41 maybe ?)

Looks like 41 to me.

On the 1901 he's transcribed as 51 (born 1850)

I don't suppose on the 1901 census it  shows where born.

On the 1891 census is shows Lanarkshire, Glasgow.

But a search of Scotland's people there are no births/baptisms of a Archibald Morrison between 1848-1952 with a father of James and Mother Mary.

Thanks JJ ... Trust the wife's lot to be awkward.

According to the Marriage Cert Archibalds father was James Morrison and his mother was Mary

There is this family on the 1861 which is a possibility -

James Morrison   49
Mary Morrison   35
John Morrison   15
Archibald Morrison   10 b. Glasgow, Lanarkshire
Peter Morrison   8
Catherine Morrison   5

Glasgow Inner High, Lanarkshire

Thanks JJ.

Looks very positive.

Also the 1891 census shows them living in 54 Barrack St. Now that address is part of a Morrison Supermarket LOL
