Urquhart Family in Stirlingshire

Posted: 1365775821000
Classification: Query

I am interested in a George Urquhart in the 1841 Drymen, Stirlingshire census.

George Urquhart, 65, agr. lab., born Scotland
James Urquhart, 20, born Stirlingshire
Isabella Urquhart, 15, born Stirlingshire
George McDonald, 14, born Scotland (son of Janet and Angus?)
Jean Bauchop, 6, born Stirlingshire

Some baptisms of children of George Urquhart and Christian MacGregor are:

George Urquhart, christened on May 9, 1816 in Drymen
James Urquhart, born March 23, 1820, christened on May 9, 1820 in Drymen
Isobel Urquhart, born March 10, 1822, christened on April 4, 1822 in Drymen

I also believe that your Janet Urquhart, who married Angus MacDonald, was the daughter of George and Christian/Christy.

I see a marriage for Janet and Angus on July 23, 1825 in Drymen, Stirling (the bride's father is George), and again on July 24, 1825 in Barony,Lanark. I have seen this before, where there are two marriages, and I guess it is to satisfy the families that live in two different places.

Based on the 1841 census, George was not born in the county of Stirlingshire, and was born c1776.

So, I am wondering if this George is the son of John Urquhart and Isabel Fraser, who was born on June 23, 1776 and christened on August 21, 1776 in Inverness, Inverness-shire.

Best regards.
