Re: Margaret Shewan Nicol - 1851 census
- Hi Lesley,
Not sure if this is yours.
District 3, Page 10, No.30, Rose Street
Margaret Nicol, visitor, wid, 66, Longside
Thomas Nicol, son, unmar, 26, Ship Carpenter, Peterhead
Head of House is Alexander Mackenzie, age 39, Flesher from Rosshire
Her age was given as 76 on the death certificate, so the census matches her age. Her birth is actually 23/10/1784 Longside parents: Alexander Shewan and Mary Smith (from IGI). Parents match given on death certificate.

Subject: Margaret Shewan Nicol - 1851 census
I am searching for a Margaret (or possibly Ann) Shewan Nicol who was born 2 Jan 1791 in Cruden and died 17 Jun 1860 in Kirktown. Her husband Thomas Nicol died 13 Dec 1848 in Peterhead. I am not sure whether she was living with a child in 1851 or not. At any rate she should be about 58-62 years of age. Any help you can give would be very much appreciated.
