    Default Finlay Munro/Ann Cuthbert

    I am looking for information on a Finlay Munro, born I believe in Ross and Cromarty around 1796 to earloy 1800's.

    His spouse is listed as Ann Cuthert, and I believe they moved to Edinburgh. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the British-Genealogy forums
    mimarae hasn't been on the forums since 2013 but if they are still using the same email address as they were back then they should receive notification of your post.

    I have just been digging around on ScotlandsPeople and there are two marriage records for a Finlay Monro and an Ann Cuthbert. One is dated 11 Sept 1820 and the other 2 Sept 1920. Both in Edinburgh. Scotlandspeople is a pay oer view site and you can pay and download these records. Whether they have parent's information or not is a bit hit and miss but worth a try.
    I see ScotlandsPeople is only showing two children for this couple. a William Monro born 1823 and a Finlay Monro 1826.
    Sorry if you already know all this.

    This is the family you are researching? 1841. Note that the ages in the 1841 census for those 15 years and over were required to be rounded down to the nearest five and it seems that this enumerator did as requested.

    14 Horse Wynd, Edinburgh Old Greyfriars, Midlothian
    Finlay Munro 45 Tailor born Scotland
    Ann Munro 45 born Scotland
    William Munro 15 Book binders apprentice

    Hi
    I did some more searching and can't find a birth record for young Cuthbert or one for John to a Finlay and Ann anywhere, There is only a John to an Alexander. Can't remember the mother's name offhand but you can see the index on ScotlandsPeople.

    Here's another little puzzle. Is he another son or different parents altogether

    father Finlay Munro, mother Ann Munro
    Bride - Margaret Elliot age 33 born Scotland
    father - Thomas Elliott, mother- Mary Loranger
