My Great grandparents would each have only been about 3 years old in 1881. Their names were ANDREW EDDIE MARGARET A CLAPHAM They came from Melrose. Any information on possible families would be of interest as little is known on this side of the family. regards Bridie Heath

If pos could you find John Green born 1868, living with parents Daniel born 1832 and Marion abt 1830. Did he have siblings. They were likely to be in Lanarkshire I think?? Thanks even if you cant. Glynis

Hello Mary I'm sorry, I'm struggling with yours. Can you give me any further info please? How do you know James was born around 1866/7, and why do you think they might be in Cambusnethan? What information do you have which is leading you to think this? Anything you know about him or his parents might help to tie them down. Regards Ellen.

Mhairi I thought Margaret Norval sounded familiar - been looking back on my old thread and I gave you info previously on a Norval family in Edinburgh. If you look back on the old thread (February) key 1881 Scottish census look ups, or something similar in to the search box and you'll get back to it. Regards Ellen.

Hello Ellen Could you please look for a Duncan MacCallum born in Glenorchy and Inishail in 1805 wife Janet (may be dead) He died a while later in Lochgoilhead so may be in that area. I have looked my self and cannot find him so if you cant either dont worry He is not the one living with a wife half his age (catherine I believe) Bit of a challenge really many thanks jamie
