Margaret Jamieson
« on: Wednesday 08 December 21 19:58 GMT (UK) »
Margaret Jamieson was the Gt Grandmother of my late husband.  On her census return it says she was born in Wishaw around 1848/9.  She lived with her mother and stepfather before her marriage to John Hamilton in 1869.  Her mother was Mary McMahon and she married John Clark in Hamilton in 1853.  Margaret's father was Robert Jamieson.  I cannot find a marriage anywhere for Robert and Mary so it's likely they didn't wed. As it's before civil registration I wonder if there were any other churches she could have been baptised in around Cambusnethan or Wishaw?
Thank you to everyone who reads this and can respond

Have you found Margaret in 1851?  I can’t see her under either surname.   I notice Mary was b Ireland but I can’t find her in 1851 either

Is it possible that Robert Jamieson & Mary McMahon married in Ireland?
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Mary married as McMahon - does the 1853 manage entry show her as a spinster or a widow

I couldn't find either of them in 1851 either.  Neither John Clark or Mary McMahon was given a status in the marriage record - both of this parish!
Mary died in 1883 as the widow of John Clark - Brickfield Labourer.  Her death was registered by her son A Clark and only gives her parent as Edward Murray Deceased,  her age given as 65 years.
Margaret died in 1890 as the widow of John Hamilton - Iron Heater.  John died on board a vessel in Suez. Margaret's age given as 44 years and the inofrmant was her son William.  Her parents were given as Robert Jamieson Coalminer deceased and Mary Clark formerly Jamieson MS McMahon.
William would only have been about 19 years old when Margaret died.

Here is a possible family in 1851 in St Cuthberts.

Mary is about the right age, and there is a child Margaret aged 2.
It might be worth investigating the family further.

Roberts - Spry: (Cornwall, Middlesex & Queensland)
Munster: (Schleswig-Holstein & Queensland) and Plate: (Braunschweig, Neubruck & Queensland)

There is a family tree on Ancestry for a Mary Jamieson, daughter of Robert, coalminer, and Mary McMahon. You need a subs to view www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/person/tree/27808305/person/26128861079/facts

She married a Bernard Rafferty, coalminer, in 1878 in Nielston, Renfrewshire. Aged 25 would make her born c. 1852-3.

Bernard Rafferty 29 coalminer b. Holytown, Lanarkshire
Mary Rafferty 29 Wife b. Wishaw
Mary Rafferty 2
Isabella Rafferty 10 months

Address: 18 Brandon St, Hamilton

This looks a likely entry for Mary in 1861:

John Laird 15
Mary Jamieson 11 Lodger cotton bleacher b. Wishaw
Isabella Duncan 20 Lodger
Jane Johnston 6 Days Daughter

Margaret was living with her mother and step=father in 1861 and she married in 1869 and therefore on the census of 1871 with her husband.
I tried to find out if the Catherine McMahon and her family were still around in 1861 to see if their birthplace in Ireland was still relevant but to no avail.
Were there any other churches other than church of scotland in the Wishaw, Cambusnethan or Craigneuk area in the 1840's / 50's as her father Robert Jamieson was a coalminer and therefore may have been working at the pits around there?
Thank you everyone for the great trouble you all go to to help.
