Hi Ailsa

I've just taken delivery today of some A3 charts from www.my-history.co.uk

Hi Alan

Its not just you! I can't find any trace of that record either on SP.

Thanks so much everyone. I've been rooting around while you have been beavering away for me, and agree with all of the above thanks. Emanday - unfortunately Isabella died somewhere between 1832 (birth of last child) and 1841 census. Re the military bit, have found Peter now on the 1851 at Collace. H...

Thanks Andrew, will do.

In the meantime, I think I've got Isabella's maiden name - Kinnis. I've found Peter in 1861 with his sister in law Jane Kinnis.
