The Manns of Coutties Wynd, Forfar
« on: Monday 15 June 20 16:58 BST (UK) »
The c1861 for Coutties Wynd, Forfar has
John Mann Head 68 Linen Weaver b Forfar
Elisabeth Mann Wife 48 Yarn Winder b Forfar
Isabella Guthrie Mann Daughter 12 b Forfar
Agness Horn Mann Daughter 10 b Forfar
James Ireland Mann Son 8 b Forfar

The c1851 has John's
Wife Elisabeth Stormont 40
Daughter Isabel 3
Daughter Agness 1

John Mann a widower, previous wife Jean Cairns, married Elisabeth Stormonth 28 May 1837 Forfar

I have had no luck so far trying to find the birth/baptism on SP or Family Search for the above Isabella, Agness and James.
Can anyone help please?

It's odd that they married in 1837 but first child wasn't born until 1847/48.  Then like buses - 3 come along one after the other ;D

Possible for 1841 below?

Elisabeth Man 30 winder
Elisabeth Man 8 Months
John Man 15 L H L W
Carnegg Ross 15 Wright app
Jane Kerr 35 winder

Address: Coutys Wynd Forfar

Geoff, as you know given the births are pre 1855, their children's births and christening may not be there to be found unfortunately.

The John Cairns aged 15 in 1841 was John Snr's son with Jean Cairns?

Thank you Carole and Monica for your contributions.
The c1841 has the family at Coutys Wynd but no John Man senior present?
I have not been able to trace 8 month old Elisabeth beyond the c1841?
John at age 15 looks like Elisabeth seniors step son born to John Man and Jean Cairns in 1826.
