Looking for John Stewart, born circa 1868 Lanarkshire
« on: Tuesday 04 January 22 17:33 GMT (UK) »
I am trying, so far in vain, to find the birth (or baptism) of John Stewart, born (according to the 1871 census) around 1868, in Anderston, Lanarkshire. His parents were Walter Stewart and Sophia Strain. Help will be appreciated.

It's possible he was born in one of the surrounding areas, have you checked as this is his parents' marriage which will have a lot of useful info. as with any Scottish 1855 cert...

STEWART WALTER / STRAIN SOPHIA 1855 - 644/7 62 Milton

Yes, I did check the 1869 John Stewart, but his parents were not Walter Stewart and Sophia Strain. These are the parents I am looking for. They are in the 1871 census, with son John, but I cannot find John's birth.

What age is he on the 1871 census & have you checked the original for his age as transcriptions can be out e.g. a 5 as a 3.

Only 2 days ago I looked at a transcription on ancestry, age was 35 but on the original image he was 55.

Also, ages can be out e.g. if he hadn't had a birthday yet he may have been born the previous yr.

Where were his siblings born which may determine where he was born if not in Anderston as the boundaries could make a slight difference?

Did John die young? There is this entry on SP:

John STEWART   
Age 3
Mother's maiden name STRAIN
1871
644/8 1457
Anderston

Doesn't help with his birth entry though...

These are the births that are easier to find:

1856 Walter www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FQRW-GG9 - death on SP 1858
1859 Charles www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FQR3-1M6
1860 Henry www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FQVQ-VTY - death on SP 1863
1865 Robert www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F79V-XRF

The family 1871 census entry supports the above:

Walter Stewart 37 rope spinner
Sophia Stewart 36
Charles Stewart 13
Robert Stewart 5
John Stewart 3    

Address: 99 Stobcross Street, Anderston, Glasgow
