Re: McAulay Kilchoman Later MacAulay Chester, PA
How does this grab you?
The Jean (10) living with Duncan in the 1851 Census was a neice born in Glasgow.
A Jean was born to Gilbert McAulay & Jean McDermid in Glasgow on 1/4/1840.
Gilbert (a wright) & Jean were married in Glasgow on 7/9/1832 by the Gaelic Minister of the Gorbals (suggesting, to me, that they came from the Islands).
In the 1841 Census there is a family Gilbert a 40 year old wright, Jean at 30, Elizabeth 3 & Jean 1 living in Brownfields Parish. Elizabeth was born in Glasgow on 11/5/1836. As yet, cannot find the family in the 1851 Census.
In the 1851 Census I have an Angus McAulay, with a 13 year old neice Elizabeth, born in Glasgow, living with him.
So could these two neices be the children of Gilbert & Jean, each living with one of their Father's brothers????
I have Angus being born at Laggan, Islay around 1799 (based on age at death on 2/4/1888), although he was married in Kilchoman and his children were born in both Kilchoman & Portnahaven. Angus' known children were Gilbert, John, Duncan, Donald & Alexander.Angus' parents were John McAulay & Ann Shaw.
What do you think??
