Help with this Stark family in 1861Census Westruther Berwickshire
« on: Saturday 29 August 20 21:42 BST (UK) »
I am busy searching back my Stark family as my computer has died and lost quite a lot of items
Tonight I thought I would look for m Stark family
Ive found this family marked paid so had another look
1861 there is a Barbara Stark deserted child aged 11 born  St Boswell
also her brother John aged 9 born Melrose ,William aged 7 also born Melrose and Elizabeth aged 5 born St Boswell the census shows no 17 Westruther
Above the Starks are shown at no 17

Margaret Dodd's aged 21 born Berwickshire
her daughter Margaret Dodd's aged 13 months and her sister Jean Dodd's aged 13 years old born Berwickshire
Could they all be of the same family I have searched Scotlandpeople for Barbara and her siblings to see who their parents are but had no luck

Both Ancestry and Find My Past transcriptions of the 1851 census state John born Legerwood, Brecknockshire, Wales and wife Mary born Eccles, Brecknockshire, Wales - the county is blatantly wrong!!   I've just looked at original census page on SP and the county for both of them is Berwick(shire).

John Starke married Mary Lillie 30/7/1848 St. Boswells, Roxburghshire.

From 1851 census John Stark/e was born Legerwood, Berwickshire and Mary Lillie born Eccles, Berwickshire.

Thank you all three of you for this information I have gone back into Scotlandpeople this morning and bought the family in 1851 census

I thought the parents must have died
my task now is to find out the reason they landed at Westruther although I have somewhere a William Stark and Isobel Moir ?? living there who maybe the children's relatives

This is like starting from scratch again .I'm hoping through time to get my dead computer searched and receive all my findings again
Cheers
