Hello,
I am trying to create a family tree. My grandfather Anthony Floyd born 1896 in County Cork Ireland married Elizabeth Jowett born 1904 Glasgow Scotland. My grandmother had a brother Mat and sister Mary. My grandparents lived in Carluke Scotland where they had a daughter Elizabeth MacDonald Floyd. They emigrated to Melbourne Australia in 1927 on the ship Euripdes. There they had a daughter May. Any info would be most welcome. I can be contacted at ron.quill@hotmail.com

Hi There,
I found an Anthony FLOID,(the only one)listed 1911 census Carluke,Scotland, family all born Ireland apart from his two youngest sisters Mary and Maggie both born Carluke.
Father Patrick 48, mother Mary 44,
Children-:Catherine 23, Patrick J 21 , Jeannie 18, Anthony 16, Hugh 14, Charles 12, Mary 10 and Maggie 8.
Address was Station Cottages, Carluke. Patrick worked as a Plate Layer on the Caledonian Railway.The couple had been married for 24 yrs and had 8 children all living. There is a James ?Vallay living as a boarder with the family also born Ireland aged 36yrs ???relative.
Same census for the Jowett Family in Carluke lists father Matthew 38, Elizabeth 32,children-: ?Ann Jane 13yrs b.England, Mary 11,Matilda 9, Elizabeth 7 b.Greenhill, Georgina 4,George McDonald Jowett 8 months. Father born England, Mother born Greenhill, Lanarkshire, Scotland. It does say they had 8 Children but only 7 survived so presuming another already away from home??

Louise,
Thank you very much. There are aspects of this that are helpful. For example my grandmother Elizabeth Jowett did have a brother George and on reflection it was my grandfather Anthony who had a sister Mary that I knew. I also know that my grandmother lost a child during birth. Interesting that there may have been a name change from Floid to Floyd but not uncommon in those days. I will do a bit more searching thanks to you.
Regards,
