Further details of Janet Henderson daughter of James Henderson and Elizabeth Haldane

Please note whereas I try to ensure that what I publish is correct, and to differentiate between what is supported by documentation etc, and what is, in my opinion, a reasonable assumption, everything should be treated with caution. If you have come across information that you believe is relevant to your own research please either verify it independently or drop me a line to confirm its validity. Equally if believe something is incorrect, or if you wish to add any details or discuss please get in touch using the Contact Form.

This daughter Janet going by her age in this census record, the 1851 census record, and her later death certificate of 1889, was born circa 1820-1825 and is therefore not the Janet Henderson whose birth was recorded in the Campsie register, in 5 September 1813. One would assume the first Janet had died in infancy and this Janet was a second one.

1851 Census (31st March) St George, Glasgow (644-1) Book 43 Page 23.

32 College Street, Glasgow.

Janet died 21 June 1889 at 228 Main Street, Glasgow, predeceased by her husband William, who died 1871-1881. The death certificate confirms her parentage as James Henderson, a ploughman, and Elizabeth Haldane. The informant was Charles Stevens, son in law, the husband of their daughter Janet who had married Charles, a brass moulder, on 15 July 1875 in Blythswood, Glasgow
