Further details of the children of Jean Adam.
(For further details of the parents of Jean Adam - click here)

Jean was born on 24 February 1802 in Dailly, Ayrshire. Jean married John McMann, an engine keeper, on 9 July 1824 in St Quivox, Ayr, Ayrshire. John McMann certaily died between 1851 and 1861 as Jane is recorded as a widow in the 1861 census. No ovious record of his demise can be found 1855-1861. However there is a record of the burial of a a John McMann, Engineer, in Glasgow who had died on 17 Feb 1854 in 15 Brown Street, Glasgow and was buried on 21 Feb 1854 in St Davids, Glasgow, which is probably "our" John McMann. Jane McMann, nee Adam, died on 12 May 1857 in Anderston, Glasgow. Jean and John had the following known children (NOTE: It would seem that the children dropped the Mc from McMann, and were known as Mann.):

William McMann born 7 August 1824, baptised 17 September 1824 , St. Quivox and Newton, Ayr, Ayrshire.

William, an Engine keeper, married Janet Hunter daughter of Robert Hunter, a Calico Block Printer, and Janet Park on 28 Jun 1846 in Gorbals, Glasgow, Lanarkshire. Janet Hunter was born about 1822 in Busby, Renfrewshire. (Note - William's younger sister Elisabeth married Archibald Hunter the brother of Janet.) William and Janet had the following known children:

William McMann died aged 50 on 24 Aug 1874 in 16 Clellland Street, Glasgow. He was recorded on the death certificate as William Mann, an Journeyman Iron Turner, married to Janet Hunter. He was identified as the son of John Mann, a Silk Mill Engineer, and Jeanie Mann, maiden surname Adam, both listed as deseased. The informant was John Mann, his son who was present.

Janet Mann, nee Hunter, died aged 73 on 9 Oct 1893 in 33 Bute Terrace, Cathcart, Glasgow. She was recorded on the death certificate as the widow of William Mann, a Mechanical Engineer, and the daughter of Robert Hunter, a Block printer, and Jeney Hunter, maiden surname Park, both identified as deceased. The informant was John Mann, her son, who was present.

Elisabeth McMann born 14 May 1826, baptised 4 Jun 1826 in Barony, Glasgow.

Elisabeth married Archibald Hunter, a Cabinet Maker, son of Robert Hunter, a Calico Block Printer, and Janet Park on 24 Feb 1850 in Gorbals, Glasgow, Lanarkshire. Archibald was born about 1824 in Busby, Renfrewshire. (Note - Elisabeth's older brother William married Janet Hunter the sister of Archibald.) Elisabeth and Archibald had the following known children:

Elisabeth Hunter, nee Mann died aged 69 on 15 Jan 1898 in 414 London Road, Glasgow. She was recorded on the death certificate as married to Archibald Hunter, a Master Cabinet Maker, and the daughter of John Mann, an Engine Keeper, and Jane Mann, maiden surname Adam, both listed as deseased. The informant was her married daughter Jane Neilson, of ?11 John? Street, Glasgow, who was present.

Archibald Hunter died aged 74 on 28 Jul 1898 in 2 Downs Street, Springburn, Glasgow. He was recorded on the death certificate as a Journeyman Joiner, widower of Elizabeth Mann, and the son of Robert Hunter, a Calico printer, and Janet Hunter, maiden surname Park, both identified as deceased. The informant was his married daughter Jane Neilson, who was present.

James McMann born on 25 Apr 1828, baptised 11 May 1828 in Barony, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.

It is possible that James died in infancy as he was not in his parents household for the 1841 census when he would have been aged 12 although elder bother William and elder sister Elizabeth were recorded.

Matthew McMann born about 1837, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.

Matthew married Ann McLean daughter of James McLean, an Engine Keeper, and Margaret Horn on 24 Feb 1860 in Anderston, Glagow, Lanarkshire. Ann was born about 1837 in Cadder, Lanarkshire.

Matthew Mann died aged 38 on 9 Jun 1877 in 4 North Street, Springburn, Glasgow. He was recorded on the death certificate as married to Ann McLean, and the son of John Mann, a Journeyman Blacksmith, and Jane Mann, maiden surname Adam, both listed as deceased. The informant was Ann Mann, widow, who was present.

Annie Mann nee McLean died aged 75 on 17 Mar 1912 in 167 Renfrew Road, Govan, (Govan Poorhouse \ Infirmary), although her former residence was recorded as 63 Rottenrow, Glasgow. She was recorded on the death certificate as the widow of Matthew Mann, a Blacksmith, and the daughter of James McLean, a Warper, and Margaret McLean, maiden surname, Horn, both identified as deceased. The informant was Ann Boyd, the deputy governor of Govan Poorhouse \ Infirmary. From census records it is believed there were no surviving children born to the couple?

Mary McMann born in 1840, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.

It is possible that Mary married John Milne, a Iron Turner, on 10 Nov 1865 in Blythswood, Glasgow. On the marriage certificate this Mary Mann was recored as being the daughter of John Mann, a Cabinet maker, and Jane Mann, maiden name Adam, which is incorrect but only as far as her father's occupation goes. i.e. his occupation was he was a Blacksmith NOT a Cabinet maker. However I still believe it is likely that this is "our" Mary Mann. John Milne was recorded as an Iron Turner, aged 21, son of Alexander Milne, a Cabinet Maker, and Margaret Milne, maiden surname Robertson (deceased). The couple both gave their addresses as 63 Clyde Street, Anderston. The details for John would fit with him being the John Milne born on 10 May 1844 in Dundee, Angus, to Alexander Milne and Margaret Robertson.

I believe that Mary died aged 25 on 22 Dec 1866 at 21 School Street, Glasgow. Although this Mary Mann was recorded on the death certificate as married to John Miln, an Iron Turner, which would be correct, she was recorded as the daughter of John Mann, a Journeyman Cabinet maker, and Margaret Mann, maiden surname Wilson. The informant was John Mann, widower, who was present. Obviously to be this Mary Mann the mothers name should have been Jane Mann, nor Margaret Mann, and the maiden surname should have been Adam, not Wilson, plus the father's occupation should have been Engineer rather than Cabinet maker. However despite these anomalies I believe this to likely to be a recorded of the demise of Mary Mann, daughter of John Mann and Jane Adam. It is assumed there were no children born to the couple?

I believe John Milne latterly married Jessie Reid on 2 December 1870, Milton, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, and for the 1881 census John and his family were recorded at 206 Garscube Road, Glasgow, along with their four children. John was recorded as an iron Turner, aged 36, and born in Dundee, Forfarshire, with his wife Jessie recorded as also aged 36, born in Glasgow, Lanarkshire. Included in the household were their four children - Alexander Miln aged 10, Jane Miln aged 7, John Milne aged 5, and James Milne aged 2. (born about 1878, Glasgow, Lanarkshire. There eldest son Alexander Miln was born 1 May 1871, and their daughter Jane Kirkaldy Miln was born 21 May 1873. Both births were recorded in Milton, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, and in both cases their mother was identified as Jessie Drysdale Reid.

I believe John Milne died aged 70 on 16 Mar 1915 in Gartloch Asylum although his formr residence was recorded as 28 Ardenlea Street, Bridgeton, Glasgow. He was recorded on the death certificate as an Iron Turner, widower of Jessie Reid, and the son of John Milne, an Engineer, and ????? Milne, maiden surname Drysdale. The informant was John Milne, his son, of 28 Ardenlea Street, Bridgeton, Glasgow. Yet again there are anomalies as "our" John Milne was the son of Alexander Milne, a Cabinet Maker, and Margaret Robertson. However again I believe this to likely to be a record of the demise of John Milne, son of Alexander Milne, a Cabinet Maker, and Margaret Robertson.

John McMann born about 1843, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.

John Mann died aged 28 unmarried on 31 Jul 1871 in 26 George Street, Glasgow. He was recorded on the death certificate as a Journeyman Engine Fitter, and the son of John Mann, a an Engineer in a Silk Mill, and Jean Mann, maiden surname Adam. The informant was Matthew Mann, his brother, of 26 George Street, Glasgow.
