 I have found this birth of Davidtina

But since finding that I have nothing else for this person, yet the name is so unique?
I have found all other family of sisters and a brother but am quite interested in this young lady.
Do you think she may have gone by another name ?

Or possibly died in infancy?

It's certainly not run-of-the mill, if she didn't die young she may have used a shortened version?

There are a few in Scotland & lots named Davidina.

Sadly, died aged 15 in 1886. Uncle, James Bingham (Bingham was her mother's maiden name), registered the death. Indexed as Davidina Connell, original is poor quality, but reads with 'y' at end.

Note that she was already working as a weaver by the time of her death (at her birth, her father was a hackler, so also in the weaving industry).

Oh wow thank you,  :)

Looks as if the family as the majority died young,
Including the dad

Many thanks again
