Well, there is a marriage 31 Mar 1842 at Crailing between John Welsh and Helen Jaffray, but then on the 1851 census the only John Welsh in Crailing (who was also the only one there in 1841) is married to a Janet Clark with a daughter born 2 Nov 1849. There is a female Welsh who died at Crailing on the 7th Jan 1849 listed in the OPR deaths and burials on Scotland's People, but she doesn't seem to have a first name listed. (Or maybe I went wrong somewhere when going through the alphabet on the free search) If you buy some credits to view the John Welsh / Helen Jaffray marriage and / or the Welsh burial maybe you will get some more info, even if it's just to rule her out.

Sorry, I put Walsh a few times where it should have been Welsh! It was very late when I typed that! Corrected now.

I found on the FS Beta site a marriage in 1849 Kelso between Elizabeth Jaffrey and John Aimers, I'm wondering if I should buy that too? She went by the name of Jaffrey on her shipping, but then when she died and she was married to Christoph Alt - her headstone had Jaffrey. I noticed lots of headstones in Borders the women kept their maiden names.

On the 1851 census John Aimers' wife Elizabeth is age 27 and born Hawick, Roxburghshire, according to ancestry. There is an Elizabeth Aimers death in Kelso in 1860 on Scotland's People but apparently there is no age at death or mother's maiden name recorded. So again, yes, you would need to look at the marriage and / or death for more information.

Oh no, wait - there is a child listed on the pilot site who was born in 1866 to John Aimers and Elizabeth Jeffrey! So it's definitely not your Elizabeth!

Many thanks Kite - she has left for Aus 1855 so that eliminates her.
