Trying to find David I have him on 1841 and 1851 census in Edinburgh but can't find him on 1861

He was born c 1778 in Midlothian son of Thomas Macgill and Janet ?  .
He married Christian Anderson in 1808 she died in 1851 .
David died in September 1861 in Edinburgh .

Thanks

Jessie

Have tried, Jessie. No joy though  :-\

Hopefully someone else can find him.

What was the address given on his death reg? Who reported the death?

"David died in September 1861 in Edinburgh ."

From the death certificate...what is the cause of death?.....where did he die?....who is the informant?

Might be a clue to where he was earlier in the year.

Thank you both for your replies  David was aged 83 died of old age at 157 Causewayside which

is in the Newington registration of Edinburgh.

His son William registered his death in September 1861

He was the widower of Christian Anderson she died in 1851

Have you located his children in the 1861 Census? 

His family name might have been transcribed incorrectly. He is a widower.......is he living with a married daughter?

Yes I have information on his family they all lived in the Edinburgh area except one who predeceased David and he lived in East Lothian.
He had one unmarried daughter Agnes who was born c 1811.

Thanks again

1855 VRs at 157 are John Fairley & John Reid.

Could he have been visiting someone when he died?

No he had only two daughters one Agnes never married and the other Janet(Jessie) was married to a George Douglas.

He was living at 154 Causewayside on 1851 Census .
