James Watson born 1828 Falkirk

Post by goldenboy » Sun Apr 23, 2017 9:47 pm

Wonder if someone could help me find James Watson born in 1828 Falkirk on census or any other information on him

I have him with his family on 1841 census with parents Robert and Elizabeth in Falkirk

He is still with them on 1851 census where is occupation is given as shoemaker .


Very grateful for any help and information.

Family Search has a birth that matches:
James Watson
Scotland Births and Baptisms

Gender Male
Christening Date 20 Oct 1828
Christening Place , FALKIRK, STIRLING, SCOTLAND
Birth Date 06 Oct 1828
Father's Name Robert Watson
Mother's Name Elisabeth Ronaldson
That couple married in Falkirk in 11th Feb1820.

The LDS census only gives 1 James Watson of around the same age born in Falkirk:
Dwelling: 273 New City Rd
Isabella WATSON Wife M 48 Murdeston?, Linlithgow, Scotland

James WATSON Head M 52 Property Agent

Janet R. WATSON Daur U 16 Serv Barony, Lanark, Scotland

Hugh G. WATSON Son U 4 Barony, Lanark, Scotland
The wife in that case seems to be Isabella Gillespie if th edaughter is this one:

Birthplace TRADESTON,GLASGOW,LANARK,SCOTLAND
