Sorry about the incorrect census date but my brother gave me two census dates and I used the incorrect one.

Does this help anyone to get our family history progress in Scotland - I was delighted when we at last found our Scotish connection.

My brother is still not certain about my findings.

Although he has found we have a connection with Edwin Laidlaw who was an ex-pat who went over to Australia and became very important in the building of Lauceston the Capital of Tasmainia - apparently he a g.... uncle.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone who might be able to help.

Hi Kate

I am directly descended from the William Laidlaw that you mention. Unfortunately I and others have so far been unable to determine the place in Scotland that he was born in, neither his parents. If you would like to get in touch I can fill you in a bit more.

Hi KateLS. I just noticed your post here and was puzzled by the dates you give. The birth does not match with the date as joiner, as they are over 100 years apart. Is there a number slip here?

This request is a bit out of our area - but I checked the IGI and hit a couple of possible option

NB: never be put off by the spelling of a surname - It can change within family just depends on the person writing it down and the sound.

William Laidlaw B= 23/11/1776 Bavington Northumberland

or more promising

Wiliam Ladlow B= 02/07/1776 Kirklinton Cumberland - parents William Laidlaw & Jane Irwin M=07/11/1772

Also parts on Lancashire were in Cumberland in the old days before it became Cumbria.

Hope this helps
