RE: [Peterhead] William Allan, Shipmaster born 17/08/1823
The 1851 Census in this case does not give the house number, they happen to be living next to my 3xgreat-grandfather, David McWilliam
Peterhead 1851 Census, District 11, page 19, No.85 (not house number), Prince(s) Street
Helen Allan, Head, Mar, age 26, Seaman Wife, born Peterhead
William Allan, Son, age 5, At Home, born Peterhead
Helen Allan, Daur, age 3, born Peterhead
John Allan, Son, age 1, born Peterhead
John Wallace, Brother, age 10, Errand Boy, born Peterhead
You will probably have more luck with a house number from a birth certificate, if they had any other children after 1855 or the 1861 census, but they may have moved.
I’ll send you a copy of the census page to your home email address.
You might want to check the 1851 Census David … it’s available online via the ScotlandsPeople website …
Does anybody know where William Allan lived in Peterhead, after his marriage on 13 November, 1845? I believe that they lived in Prince Street, but I don't have the house number and I wonder if anybody has this, or can tell me how to find it.
Also, does anybody know where his father John Allan lived and John Allan's father lived? John Allan born 1760, father of John Allan, born 1799.
