Re: Douglas families - IOM
In Response To: Douglas families - IOM ()

Hi Peter , looked to see what I could find for family one . On the late Brian Lawson's site , he has the 1841-1871 , 1891 and 1901 census listed by name , so on the 1841 census , Douglas (town) I found together (the only Robert Douglas on the IOM):
Mary Douglas aged 30 (???)
Robert aged 12
John aged 10
Godfrey aged 8
No matching father . on the 1851 census together in Douglas Town :
Robert 26
Mary 23
Elizabeth 1 month .(birth not on IGI)

Mother Mary has disappeared / remarried ?

There is a christening 14/10/1828 IOM on IGI for Robert Douglas to Robert D and Mary Williamson .

Brian Lawson shows the marriage of Robert Jnr to Mary McCaskie 22/1/1851 .

On the 1851 IOM census there is a Catherine McCaskey aged 50 , in Douglas - different address . Mother visiting after birth ?

Do you have access to 1851 census to check these details ? maybe show where Mary and Catherine born in Scotland ?

Robert , Mary and Elizabeth are not on 1861 census IOM , could not find them arriving in Australia . Do you know when they came ?
