Stewart is an awfully common Scottish name. What are James and mary's d.o.b.s?

I've had a good look through possibles on Ancestry and can't see any likely matches.

Sorry no luck yet either trying all different combinations of the family as on Scotlands People you can search for 2 people to try to narrow it down

Hi Katherine .... I've only recently started researching this family, so the only children I have noted were from the 1851 census.

Janet's pedigree seems to match, so Jean, Elizabeth and John may also be part of the same family. I think there may have been a daughter Marion too.

Update: I just found James c1820, George c1821 and Marion c1822 with the same parents - James and Elisabeth.

Wonder where they are in 1841? As they seem to have been in Paisley when all children born.

Just popping off to see if I can find James and Elizabeth's marriage.

Thanks for your help Katherine .. I'm hoping this info will enable me to backtrack with the family now and find James and Elizabeth's births and deaths and maybe some of the children's marriages.

It's always worth looking through the Wills on ScotlandsPeople, just in case. The search is free and often there's plenty of description to identify the person without shelling out a fiver for the image. It also tells you what type of document it is and how many pages.

Found a birth on scotlandspeople for James Stewart b. 1796 Paisley, Renfrew. Parents: Robert Stewart & Marion Lawson.

Found a birth for Robert Stewart b. 1814 to James Stewart & Elizabeth Clark Abbey Paisley, so it looks like their first son was Robert who would probably be names after James' father. Plus Marion who is possibly the second daughter, named after James' mother.

Found a marriage for Robert Stewart & Marion Lawson 1794 Renfrew.(SP)

Hope this helps

I found another birth for James & Elizabeth, David b. 1816 Abbey Paisley,(SP) so second son is possibly Elizabeth's father's name if they used the naming pattern.

David's birth on sp has the mother as Bettie Clark.
