Hi danieloftyne,

As you are possibly aware no birth or death record in scotlandspeople website for Agnes Jane Stewart, around 1884 in Haddington. Do you have a name for her mother?

Tom Buchanan
Scotland - Buchanan, Thomson, Pat(t)erson, Stewart, Ritchie, Tracey
Ireland - Tracey, Conroy, Pat(t)erson.

Hi I have since found her born in newcastle upon tyne in 1886 to William Stewart and Elizabeth Henderson now I'm looking for william Stewart who was definitely born in Scotland to John and Janet but not sure when .He married  Elizabeth in Newcastle-upon-Tyne  in 1884 if that helps and I might be mistaken but he could have been born in Edinburgh

There are 1091 births of William Stewarts in Scotland between 1855 and 1870, so you need some more information if you want to pin down your particular one.

First, what does his marriage certificate say his father's occupation was? And does it give his age?

Next, have you found him in a census in 1891/1901/1911/1921, and if so does any of them say where in Scotland he was born? What age did he say he was in each census?

There is a record of a marriage of John Stewart to Janet Leishman in Edinburgh in 1845. This couple did have a son named William, born 20 March 1863 in Haddington, East Lothian.

All the relevant records are online at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

Looks like the whole of the Stewart family had moved to Newcastle by the time of the 1871 census:

Thomas Aldridge 26 chair maker b. High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
Janett Aldridge 22
Thomas Aldridge 1 b. Newcastle
John Stewart 48 Father-in-law coach painter
Jennet Stewart 42
John Stewart 22
Robert Stewart 18
Thomas Stewart 14 b. S. Shields Durham
Charles Stewart 16
Alice Stewart 10 www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYRS-3FN
William Stewart 7
Louisa Stewart 3 months    

All the Stewarts, with the exception of baby Louisa and son Thomas, are showing as in Scotland.
Louisa's birth reg on the GRO index:

STEWART, LOUISA        LIESHMAN     
GRO Reference: 1871  M Quarter in NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE  Volume 10B  Page 97

I think Louisa died in 1877.
