Notes

1    Norman Swindle gives 6th June 1858 but references 24/6/1858

2    The informant was James Smith, Brother-in-law. The 1891 census shows James Smith at 64 McIntyre Street, wife Mary aged 46.This is probably his cousin Mary Proud, a widow of 28 at the time of the 1871 census. Norman Swindale notes that Mary was born 13/7/1842 and therefore should have been aged 48. According to Norman her birth was registered in the 4th quarter of 1842.
