Hi Monica thanks for the info .I have since posting found some of this info,now I'm trying to track down the ones born in Scotland  but I'm having very little luck in finding Janet Stewart jnr who became Aldridge also John, Robert, Charles. I don't know if they were registered at all or they weren't born where they said, and I can't for the life of me find Janet senior in dunfermline nor John stewart senior maybe I'm looking in the wrong place it's a mystery.

Father John not in the household for 1861, but these are the rest of the family:

Janet Stewart 33 b. Dunfermline, Fife
John Stewart 13 b. Glasgow
Janet Stewart 11 b. Perth, Perthshire
Robert Stewart 9 b. Perth, Perthshire
Charles Stewart 7 b. Haddington
Thomas Stewart 4 b. Haddington (we know he was born in Durham)
Alice Stewart 7 Months b. Haddington

Address: Nungate, Haddington

Added: John looks to be working in Glasgow and lodging there at the time of the 1861 census.

Official registration started in 1855, later than in England & Wales. The post 1855 births in Scotland will be on www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk I can see a couple of entries in the index on Family Search:

Alice which is posted above www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYRS-3FN

And William, which Forfarian mentioned earlier www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYBP-ZFN

I can't easily see any entries for the children's christenings on the Old Parish Registers on SP though.

John Stewart 4 b. Edinburgh
Janet Stewart 2 b. Edinburgh
Hendry Leishman 18 lodger, weaver b. Dunfermline, Fife (brother to Janet?)

Possible entry for Janet?

A good possibility for Janet in 1841 with her family, including a younger Henry:

Robert Leishman 47 J Flaxdresser b. Scotland
Janet Leishman 44 b. Scotland
Robert Leishman 19
Henry Leishman 8
Mary Leishman 21
Janet Leishman 14

Address: Spittal, Dunfermline

If you look for parents in the 1851 census, you should hopefully establish where in Scotland they were born as they show as born outside of the county in 1841.

Between 1820-25, there are three births or christenings showing in Dundee for a John Stewart (searching as St*rt for variants):

1821 - parents GEO. STEWART/MAY BAXTER
1822 - parents JOHN STEWART/JANET STEWART
1822 - parents CHAS. STEWART/AGNES EDWARD

No certainty though that his birth or christening was recorded in the OPRs or at all. Remember also that over the years many registers have been lost or destroyed. It is stated that only about a third of BMD events were recorded pre 1855 for all sorts of reasons.

Ah thank you ever so much for all your help I shall add all this info to my tree you are correct with Robert leishman as I have the marriages record of John stewart and Janet leishman and it states her father was a flax dresser unfortunately it doesn't give the grooms father's name oh well I can't have it all my own way I suppose😊
