Yes I thought that also and thought hawker of stoneware
as was listed as stoneware merchant on 1851 census.

In the image for the 1861 census posted by Gins on page 1, the handwriting's terrible, but there are also some changes.

Felix's surname could be either McCarron or McCarson, and his first name was first entered as Peter, then crossed out and changed to Felix. He's listed as a lodger at the address. Wonder if Peter's an alternative name, or just a mistake?

Isabella Carson - could be Carron (or McCarron with the Mc missed out.)
She was first listed as his wife, then that's been crossed out and changed to Lodger.
But both are listed as married, so she presumably was his wife.

His occupation is hard to decipher, but might be Hawker.

Its a very unusual name till you put it on IGI and then
its something else.
Would like to find his birth in Ireland.
Thanks again for your help and to all who gave their
time in this. Will pass this on to my friend and see what he thinks.

So either Catherine died before he married Isabella, or it's a different Felix!
But it's an unusual name.

Yes Gins Parish registrations sorry.

I did not find a death for William Trueman or Catharine,
did try her maiden name but with no luck which I feel
I must have missed something on them all somewhere
along the line.

Statutory Marriages Index

The statutory marriages index contains entries from the the civil registers of marriages for all Scotland, from 1855 until 2009.

The index does not include the full date of the event, because only the year was captured when the indexes were compiled, although the full date is present on register entries themselves

Sorry I meant statutory marriages. Do you have parish registrations?

GoldenGirl1

GoldenGirl1 Report 30 Mar 2013 11:22

Gins marriage records on SP go back to 1538 to
1854, I have a marriage record for 1789 for an
ancestor.

Was Chatherine Black married to William Trueman and she reverted back to her maiden after his death?

Thanks Gins her son Robert Trueman was b 1825
so would fit there but wonder where her daughter
Mary Anderson Trueman b 1827 is.

There are 10 matches for a Felix Mc* searched between 1855-1860

Statutory Register Marriages 1855 - 1860.Learn more. 10 matches

But if they married before befor 1855 there will be no records on SP
