Any idea how old he would have been in 1841? The 1841 census did not include occupations.

I found no shoemaker Hughs in the 1851 census.
How about cordwainers? (Just throwing out a random thought)
The 1841 census DID include occupations, it was relationship to others in the household that was missing.  However, I've searched the 1841 census index on findmypast and can't see any Hugh McGregor shoemakers in Lanarkshire never mind Glasgow.  Is it possible that the 1854 Hugh is a son of the 1835 Hugh?
Hi Sheena

The entry I have is from the 1835 glasgow postal directory which states Hugh McGregor shoemaker 51 High street, I have recieved further information relating to a family including Duncan McGregor and a younger brother Hugh McGregor along with other siblings, I have to see if this fits in with the time line as the only birth date Im confident with is Duncan McGregor 1834-1887,

Thank you for your support it most appreciated

Hi C.Mackinnion

Thanks for your interest, Im not sure how to access the 1841 census is it somthing you can do on line ?
The census should be on Scotland’s People. If you can narrow down the record, there is a small fee to look at it. You may be able to do a free search on findmypast.co.uk to eliminate some records.

You could try the Scottish Post Office directories online via the National Library of Scotland website at https://digital.nls.uk/directories/index.html They're also available on the internet archive at https://archive.org/details/scottishdirectories

https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/research/guides/census-records/1841-census  good info on the 1841 Census

As noted above the full available census is online at Scotland's People.  To see it there is a modest charge.  However some areas of the 1841 census did not survive.  See this note:


This is a free search of 1841 Census on Family Search  I queried for Hugh McGregor and Glasgow.  It brought back a number of entries.  You will need to check each one.
