Info on Peter and Margaret (Hay) Lawson,Sheardale, near Dollar Scotland, 1841-51?

+5 votes
Peter  and Margaret (Hay) Lawson, in 1851 census, had 4 children including my great grandfather Peter, b. 1838, who was living in Boston, Massachusetts by the 1860s. Had five more children in next ten years. Would appreciate tracing either parent, or both, back earlier. Or nowing if the entire family emigrated to Boston.

Hi anonymous,

The census started in Scotland in 1841 &all census records from that date are available on Scotlandspeople

Also the Old Parish registers should provive you with more information on Peter & Margarets's ancestors.

All the best

There are so many Pater Lawson that immigrated hard to tell the right one.Something that would help, knowing his middle initial or middle name.
