Ann and Hugh,

thanks very much for this.

I have a friend here in Holland called Allan Poot, who comes from S.A. He only knows that his grandmother, (possibly g-gr-mother) came from Ardrossan. He asked me if I could find anything for him.The details I gave were all that he had.

I will pass this on to him. Again, thanks a million. Allan will be very pleased. Up till now they had no background at all.

Hi Ann,
I don't know if you can help with an address on the 1871 census. My great grandfather is Bernard McGrattan and he is married to Maria, 3 children listed Patrick 6 mths Esther 5 and Ellen 6mths?? (twins) but I cannot makeout the address and I am not familiar with the area (does it still exist)

The 1881 census shows the twins Patrick now 13 and Ellen 10, mam and dad ages change as well

I am now trying to find out if Ellen died and a later daughter also became Ellen

Thanks
Brian, Tillicoultry

Hi Brian,
It looks like the address on the 1871 Census is Chapwell No. 5 (Buswir Close)??? Saltcoats, Ayr. I'm sorry I can't help more with the address as I live in Canada.

Thanks Ann, I will see what more I can find by posting a note on the Threetowers wesite

I did not realise you lived in Canada, the power of the internet with us all sat in our own rooms communicating around around the world.

My wife and I had 3 weeks in Canada in Sept in New Brunswick, Nova scotia and PEI, we love Canada.

I am also trying to find where my other G Grandfather was living in 1901, William Sloan, b circa 1861 in Ireland he would be a widower in 1901 when his wife Agnes died in Jan 1897 they were living in Coatbridge, children are;
Edward b 1885
John b 1887
William b 1890
Robert b1894
Agnes b1896

Thanks
Brian PS pretty cold in Scotland at the moment -10c

I was able to track down your great granaddad in the 1901 census.

Edward Sloan - son - 15
John Sloan - son -13

Maary Agnes Sloan - daughter - 4
Anne Jane Anderson - born abt 1856 - age 45 - housekeeper
Agnes Anderson - 16 listed as his daughter
Andrew Anderson 10 listed as his son
Robert Anderson - 6 listed as his son
James Anderson - 14 listed as his son
NO mention of William Sloan - perhaps deceased?????

Good Luck with your search, and if I can help with anything else please let me know.

Thanks again, William must have been staying someplace else he did not die until 1950, a really interesting bit of info is that Agnes 4 is at home, I always understood that she had been brought up in a convent/orphanage, her daughter Annie (83) is still alive and I keep in regular touch she lives in kilmarnock, Agnes birthplace listed as Calder but I have her birth cert and she was born in Calder House, Coatbridge. I cannot find any place in Ireland called Irglass perhaps this is similar to Calder?


The 3 oldest boys are all born in England, William in 1890, Robert b1894 in Lugar near Cumnock, Scotland. I wonder when the family moved to Scotland, do they appear on the 1891 Scottish census, if so what was the wife Agnes occupation. We were told she was a teacher but I find this odd because her husband William cannot even write his own name. Amazing trying to read between the lines.

We stayed for 3 weeks in Stratford, Ontario 2004, also a friend in Toronto who we have visited a number of times.

Brian mild and raining today
