A possibility for the son John's death:

You can view and print the original document on Scotlands People for the cost of 6 credits (purchase minimum 30 credits for £7.50)

John is 3 weeks old in 1841:

If you think they died in Scotland you need Scotlands people website

It’s free to search but pay to view certs

Hello, I am looking for the burial/death of the above father and son.

Background information as follows:

James Auckincloss (Auchencloss) married Sarah Sidgwick at Hutton Rudby, North Yorkshire 21 May 1833 by licence. Sarah aged 21 from Hutton Rudby, James aged 21 from the parish of Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland.

1841 census George Street, Lanark

Sarah Auchincloss 30 born England
Elisabeth 5 Scotland
Ruth 5 Lanarkshire
John 0 Lanarkshire

In 1851 Sarah is back in Hutton Rudby with her parents Benjamin and Ruth and daughter Elizabeth 4. This should actually be Jane born Dec q 1846 Hutton Rudby. Sarah's status is married.

1851 census daughter Elizabeth aged 16 is a servant at Stokesley, born Scotland. Married Thomas Kirby 1857 at Stokesley.

1851 census daughter Ruth aged 16 is a servant at Broughton, near Stokesley born Paisley, Renfrewshire. Married John Kirk 2 April 1860 at Guisborough. Her father's name and occupation on marriage certificate is blank.

1861 census daughter Jane aged 14 is a servant at Stokesley born Hutton Rudby. Marries William Coulson 27 November 1871 at Stockton on Tees.

On 31 May 1851 Sarah aged 39 a widow marries William Bowman at Hutton Rudby.

I think James and John may have died in Scotland, any help appreciated. It doesn't help that Auchincloss has any number of spelling variations.

I don't need any info on Sarah or her daughters as I have all their details on all the census returns up to their deaths.

Thank you.
