I totally agree with you about the inconsistencies. Margaret (Thomas McAulay's wife) is of a different age based on every document I found. It's crazy, but such is the world of record keeping. You had asked which ancestor I was descended from - I don't believe I answered that, since I actually didn't see that question until now. Thomas and Margaret (nee Brown) McAulay had another daughter named Elizabeth. She married a Joseph Murphy. That is my line.

I spent many hours sorting out the children last night. But today, I need to find that death record on Thomas's wife. I think we have the general dates right. Keep your fingers crossed! The sad part in all of this, however, is that finding that record will give me what I was looking for (hopefully) - Margaret's parents' names. But that will only bring me back to Northern Ireland, as with Thomas McAulay, and it will be a dead end given that there are almost no records left for that period in time.

 :D Found her death record!!! She died in Bridgeton in 1873. But her her age was 54!!! Talk about a swing in dates - wow. Cheers for your help (and interest). Are you tied to my line? If so, please feel free to PM me.

So she was 50 in 1861, 58 in 1871, and 54 at death in 1873.   Would you have found her (in England) with a surname Smith - unlikely.

No, not related at all, and am no good on Irish records.

If you have a specific query on Irish records you could try the Irish board (with a link to this query if you want.)

Who were her parents?

William Brown and Rebecca Armour. How would I find the Irish Board???

Glad you are good at the English records - you were a big help with the earlier censuses. A big pat on the back for that!  :  )

BTW, as it turns out, "Armour" is not very common in Northern Ireland. It is almost exclusively English/Scottish (although there were some, but not many, families who migrated to NI). Now I'm wondering if Margaret Brown's mum/family was actually English/Scottish? Hmm. Makes things a bit interesting.

You started this in Beginners, and it got moved to Lanarkshire.

Anyway, click on FORUM at top, and then scroll down to Ireland.

(It was not English records, it was Scottish, and I did a family tree for my grandson who has a Scottish grandmother and an Isle of Man grandfather, so have looked at a few records over the years.)

BTW, as it turns out, "Armour" is not very common in Northern Ireland.

In the 1911 Irish census, there were over 350 people with the surname Armour in counties Antrim and Down.
