On the 1861 census there is an Anderson family in Forfar: John age 46, a linen handloom weaver, born Rescobie, Ann age 40 born Forfar, and children Jean 20, William 18, George 11, Mary 9, Catharine 5, and Thomas 1 (according to ancestry's transcription). Is that the right family?

John Anderson was born around 1815 and Anne Erskine around 1820. That is as far as I have got. All of Mary Anderson siblings have Scottish surnames as middle names. I believe its a tradition.

Reading back through the thread, I see that John Anderson was a shoemaker according to Mary's marriage record, so perhaps that 1861 census record isn't the right one?

Yes you are right it is treadwell. Lawrence is another branch of my family. Yes this is the correct family also in the census.

1881 census Mary is 29 born Scotland:
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...=successSource

and 1891 she is 39 born Scotland:
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...=successSource

and 1901 she is 49 born Scotland:
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...3_112_114-0708

On the GRO death index she is Mary Treadwell age 56 (Oct-Dec 1908 Marylebone).

So no middle name of Nicoll on any of these records, nor on the marriage record, and the censuses don't narrow her birthplace down to Forfar. Can I ask how you know she is Mary Nicoll Anderson from Forfar, so we don't cover the same ground all over again, please?

I have this record. I am hoping to get to Mary's grandparents, if possible. With many thanks. ??
