Hi David OK, I think I've sorted them out. Your Sheriffs were driving me potty, so I went on scotlandspeople and got the marriage cert of Alexander Sheriffs and Margaret Agnes Gibb. This is what I think is the story; Alexander Sheriffs was born on 17 July 1862 @ Kirkden, Angus, to George Sheriffs and Ann Taylor. (so he was older than 15 in 1881). George Sheriffs and Ann Taylor were married (or at least banns were called at both of their churches) on 5th/11th June 1853 @ Dunnichen/Kirkden, Angus. Ann Taylor died. George Sheriffs then married Isabella Hall on 08 April 1872, @ Arbuthnott, Kincardine (not far from the above places in Angus). (All of the above info available free on the familysearch site) This therefore, as sent before, is your Alexander sheriffs with his dad and stepmother in 1881. Dwelling: 16 Andson St Census Place: Kirkden, Forfar, Scotland Source: FHL Film 0203494 GRO Ref Volume 298 EnumDist 4 Page 8 Marr Age Sex Birthplace George SHERIFFS M 79 M Inverkeillor, Forfar, Scotland Rel: Head Occ: Inspector Of Poor Isabella SHERIFFS M 52 F Arbuthnot, Kincardine, Scotland Rel: Wife Alexander SHERIFFS U 18 M Kirkden, Forfar, Scotland Rel: Son Occ: Yarn Bleacher His occupation ties in with that on his marraige cert. Now I'll look further for Margaret Agnes Gibb, and her unmarried mother, Jessie Gibb, who later married David Traill, a night watchman in a factory, according to the marriage cert. If you don't have the cert, send me your e mail address and I'll send it over to you. If you did have the cert, why didn't you help me to help you by giving me some more info!! Cheers, I hope this helps. I'll go have another look for Margaret and Jessie. Happy to do any further look ups you'd like. Ellen.

Hi Ellen, Thank you so much for the time, extra effort and cost to find out the information on the Sheriffs for me. I had tried familysearch but couldn't find any link to the family as I knew it. Perhaps I am searching the wrong way on Family search? Could you point me in the right direction and tell me where you found the info? This is a major step forward for me. I truly appreciate it. Thank You, David.

Hi Anne This is really weird - I can not find any of them on 1881. I've checked the rest of Scotland too. I'm going to check the National Index now to see if they moved to England. I'm mystified as I can't even find the lodger, Letitia. With such an unusual name for Scotland she should be easy. But of course she may have married between 1871 and 1881. I'll get back to you if I find anything. cheers Ellen.

Danielle Re query on old thread (will now delete old one, so hope everyone had all of their info!) Ellen Ballantyne - only one showing in south of Scotland. Prob not her. On the 1901 census, where did she state she was born? A few options here for Helen (Nellie) - not hopeful that any are right. Again on 1901 where does she say she was born? James Tait - there are 76 within a 5year either way time frame, but only one in Dalkeith, and he's too young to have got married 6 years later. Have put him on here anyway. Again, what info does it give for him on 1901? Where are you getting the info re the 1887 marraige - if its the cert, what are James' parents names, where was he living then? What is Helen (Nellie)'s father's name? Where was she living then? Catherine More - 3 options here in Midlothian, but again need a bit more info to pin her down. Any idea of parents?

Hi Ellen, I would be really grateful if you would check the 1881 census to see if there is anyone called Samuel Thomson BAYNE(Thomson was a middle name) there. He was born in Glasgow, Lanarkshire in 1846. He was either a shopkeeper or a fishmonger (or possibly a fruit merchant) in 1881. He was married but he does not appear to be with his wife at Gilmour St, Kilmarnock on census night. I've tried the 1881 census on the LDS site but couldn't find trace of him. As he wasn't in the matrimonial home on census night I assume he must have been a boarder or visitor elsewhere. He may have been staying with his mother who was alive until 1890. I couldn't find her on census night either. Her name was Ellison BAYNE but the christian name may be spelt Alison. She was born around 1810 and had lived in both Kilmarnock and Glasgow. If you are able to locate anyone by the name of BAYNE born and living in Glasgow Lanarkshire I would love to have any details. Many thanks Jenny

I have checked the National Index to see if he is in England, with no luck. He's either out of the country, or his name has been mistranscribed. I've tried Payne, no luck.
