On 4 May

Only 2 births today, and they’re both for people who have subsequently failed to turn up in the records.

4 May 1805
James Marshall born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, son of Robert Marshall and Agnes Logan and brother of my gg grandmother Sarah Marshall. Sadly, that’s all I’ve been able to discover about him.

4 May 1845
Birth of Elizabeth Hamilton at Moorefield Fireworks, Kilmaurs, Ayrshire, daughter of Janet Hamilton and Janet Strachan. Elizabeth was therefore the granddaughter of my ggg uncle Thomas Strachan and Elizabeth Nisbet. She is with her parents in 1841 at Corsehill Square, Dreghorn and then disappears from the records – or should I say she isn’t obviously there and I may not have dug deep enough to find her.

  1. James Marshall born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, son of Robert Marshall and Agnes Logan – I think he was also a shoemaker and went down to London where he married Ann born 1807 Colchester, Essex.
    They had two children that I can find William John Marshall born 1843 St Pancras and Edward James Marshall born 1835 St Pancras ‘I wold like to know if you have came to the same conclusion as this you can find them in the 1851 census Jill

    • Hi Jill. I think you’re right – it certainly looks like it. I will see what I can unearth about him and his children. And I think I’ll have to buy his death certificate to see what it says. Will report back after some research. Thanks so much for the tip.

      • Hi again. I’ve now done some research on the James Marshall in St Pancras. Will send you an email about him. Short answer is it could be but I’m not sure!
