bullet  Marriage Notes:

July 6, 2000:
According to the 1881 census, Malcolm was a gamekeeper. The Andrew Dalglish who is listed as Malcolm and Helen's grandson was probably the son of their daughter Janet. The GRO(S) Index lists a boy named Andrew Dalgleish Coubrough, born July 1, 1874, who was the illegitimate son of one Janet Coubrough.

April 2, 2002:
The 1891 British census was conducted in about April. The column headings listed below were on every page, but I have listed them as numbers here to save space. There were also columns labelled "No. of Schedule;" "Road, Street, &c., and No. or Name of House" and "Rooms with one or more windows" which I have listed at the beginning of each entry as there was only one entry per family in each column. The columns headed "Gaelic or G. & E." and "Whether: 1. Deaf and Dumb. 2. Blind. 3. Lunatic, Imbecile, or Idiot" rarely had entries for any of the Coubroughs. When they did, this is noted in the "notes" section at the end of each entry.

1. Name and Surname of each Person.
2. Relation to Head of Family
3. Conditon as to Marriage
4. Age (last birthday) [There are separarte sub-columns here for males and females; indicated in transcripts by M or F along with the age.]
5. Profession or Occupation
6. Employer
7. Employed
8. Neither Employer nor Employed but working on own account
9. Where born [usually given in the format County, Parish]

Myrna's Notes: Malcolm and Helen's grandson, Andrew, was marked as being "Deaf & dumb from birth." He was the illegitimate son of Malcolm and Helen's daughter Janet. James, the plumber son in this family, could be NZ Jim's grandfather. There was only one other family on this page at the same address.

May 19, 2002:
The 1901 Census asked pretty much the same questions as the one before, except there were only two columns for occupation instead of three. In my transcription of the 1901 record, the first five columns are the same; column 6 is now "Employer, Worker, or on Own Account," column 7 is "If Working at Home," and Column 8 is "Where Born" in the same form as before. No one spoke Gaelic, or was Deaf and Dumb, Blind, Lunatic, Idiot or Feeble-minded.

Myrna's notes: The first entry on this page is for an address at 76 Hallcraig House. The other three address on the same page are all for the same house, but there is a small number after each. The main address, with 5 windowed rooms, was occupied by Richard Gibb, Brickworks Manager, and his family. It appears that this was a large house that had been sub-divided into apartments for workers, with the manager on the main floor, and the others sharing what was probably a second (or third) floor. Malcolm's oldest sister, Jean, had married a man named Joseph Gibb and possibly this Richard was a relative of his.

No one in Malcolm's family spoke Gaelic, or was "Blind, Lunatic, Idiot or Feeble-minded," but there was a note for Andrew which said he had been "deaf and dumb from childhood."
