Alexander married Janet Bell on 28 May 1806 in Barony, Glasgow. This was possibly the Janet Bell born 8 March 1783 and baptised 16 March 1783 Barony, Glasgow to George Bell and Elizabeth Martin

Alexander and Janet had the folllowing known children:


John Hendrie born 3 May 1806, Barony, Lanarkshire

John Hendrie born 3 May 1806, and baptised 1 June 1806, Barony, Lanarkshire, son of Alexander Hendry and Janet Bell.

John Hendrie married Agnes Duncan on 23 February 1827 Barony, Lanark, Scotland. According to Agnes's later death certificate she was the daughter of James Duncan, Cotton Warehouse Porter, and Agnes Duncan, maiden surname Smith. No obvious record of her birth, or her parents wedding has been found.

For the census of 1841 John and Agnes were recorded living in Malborough Street, with John simply recorded as a Labourer. Their two younger sons, James and John, were recorded in the household, but their younger daughter Janet was not which may signify her death in infancy.

 For the census of 1851 there was a John and Agnes recorded as resident in Sister Street, Calton, which was in fact an extension of Malborough Street, the residence of "our" John asnd Agnes for the 1841 census. (Latterly the two streets became Orr Street). Unfortunately of the surname only an "ey" at the end can be made out. However thisJohn was recorded as an "Engine Keeper" which tallies with the occupation given for "our" John Hendrie in later censuses and his death certificate. As this and all other details match, I am certain this "our" John and Agnes Hendrie.

John Clark (Jun) & Co, were Cotton Thread Manufacturers of 47 Kings Street, Mile End, Calton, Glasgow.

The Glasgow Herald of 15 November 1884

Margaret Hendrie born 31 December 1810, Barony, Lanarkshire

Margaret Hendrie born 31 December 1810, and baptised 13 January 1811, Barony, Lanarkshire, daughter of Alexander Hendry and Janet Bell

Margaret married Andrew Foulis, a Cotton Warper, on 13 May 1832 in Barony, Glasgow, Lanarkshire. (Surname also appears variously as Faulds, Foulds, Fouls, Falls, and no doubt other variations!!) According to his later death certificate Andrew was the son of Robert Faulis, a Factory Clerk, and Janet Faulis, maiden surname Dick, Andrew was born on 10 March 1814 and baptised on 17 Apr 1814 in Gorbals, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.
It is believed that Andrew and Margaret had the following children:

For the census of 1841 Margaret and Alexander were recorded living at John St Lane Henderson's Land, Glasgow, witheir three children, Janet, Margaret and William. Andrew was described as a Warper. The family name is given as Falls but the details are taken from the Freecens website and it maybe a transcriiption error as the orginal census has not been viewed.

For the census of 1851 the family were recorded at 73 King Street, Glasgow. Once again Andrew was listed as a Warper and the two younger children were included in the household. Janet the elder daughter was recorded in the household of her grandfather Alexander at London Road, Springbank, Calton, Glasgow. The family nme is given as Fouls but again the details are taken from the Freecens website and it maybe a transcriiption error as the orginal census has not been viewed.

Andrew Faulds died aged 47 on 2 April 1861 in 14 Orr Street, Calton, Glasgow, Lanarkshire. He was recorded as Andrew Faulis, a Cotton Yarn Warper, married to Margaret Hendry, the son of Robert Foulis, a Factory Clerk, and Janet Faulis, maiden surname Dick, both identified as deceased. The informant was Thomas Smith Son in Law.

The 1861 census for the household at 14 Orr Street, 6 days after Andrew's death does indeed included his son-in-law Thomas Smith and his eldest daughter Janet who Thomas had married in 1853. Thomas and Janet are described as "boarders", but I am convinced that the "Margaret Houls or Lindsay - Widow" listed as head of the household was in fact Margaret Faulds or Hendry, Andrew's widow. Elizabeth, aged 18, and Robert, aged 14, are their children from the previous census - Elizabeth, aged 8, and Robert, aged 4. Isabella aged 10 would fit with the Isabella Faulds who died in 1873 and was identified as daughter of Andrew Faulds, Warper, deceased, and Margaret Faulds, maiden name Hendrie. I have viewed the original census document and the name are certainly Houls and Lindsay. Certainly Margaret was alive for the 1861 census somewhere!

For the census of 1871 census what was almost certainly Margaret was recorded as an inmate in the Poor House, Lunatic Asylum, & Fever Hospital in Springburn.

Janet and Thomas had one known child:

For the census of 1861 the couple were recorded in the household of Janet's father Alexander at 5 Morrison Place, Calton, Glasgow. The ennumerator for some reason has mis-recorded Alexander Hendry as Alexander Handen. However it was without doubt Alexander Hendry.
