Henry Stewart m. Catherine McKay at St Cuthbert’s, Edinburgh, on 26th Feb 1846.
In the 1851 census, they are listed as living in Lady Lawson’s Wynd, with daughter Joanna (Johan), aged 3. Henry's occupation is given as a flesher, his age 36 (born c1815) and born in England. Henry later seems to have joined the army as an infantry man in the 1st regiment foot, possibly at the time of the Crimean War. He vanished from the records between 1851-1861. I can find no record of Henry's birth or death, nor any record of daughter Joanna's birth. Wife and daughter later appear in Glasgow. Can anyone help?

Thanks, Janet
