On reading the birth certificate for Anne in 1855 I notice that there is some extra detail which other certificates don't have.

There is a heading "Father's" which is divided into two columns. The second column heading says: "When and where married; Issue, living and deceased".

The information given says:
"Married 1835 Glass, Aberdeenshire
3 boys & 4 girls living and 1 boy & 1 girl deceased".

Under the heading "Mother's" this information is given: "Her 10th child 38 years".

The first Charles must have died, but I am missing a child, who must be the daughter who died.

The 1857 record of the birth of the second Charles does not have these headings, so Anne's birth is the only record where this information is given.

I think extra info was given in 1855 only on Scottish certs so you were lucky to have the 'right' date!

This is the only certificate I have which gives this extra information, Merry, so I am very lucky!

It's a shame they didn't seem to record burials/deaths very diligently before 1855. The records are very patchy, and I am also missing a lot of marriages.
