I think I have my direct line of Pollocks straight, it is just the Gilchrist family that is a problem. John Pollock definitely married JEAN Snodgrass; their grandchildren, the children of Robert Snodgrass Pollock and Mary Gilchrist, were: Christina Arrol, 1873; Jean Snodgrass, 1875; Andrew, 1876; John, 1879; Robert Snodgrass, 1880; William Gilchrist, 1884; James Dickson, 1886; Mary Gilchrist, 1890. The naming pattern is not followed completely, but those are definitely the names and dates. James Dickson was named after his father's brother-in-law in Greenock. The father of John Pollock senior was Andrew Pollock, so the first son must have been named after him.

On the death certificate of Mary Gilchrist Pollock, Robert Snodgrass Pollock's wife, her birthdate is given as December 1851 and birthplace just as "Scotland". Her father's name is given as William Gilchrist and her mother's name as Mary Gilchrist, which I am sure is a mistake. Since her mother, Christina Arrol, died while Mary was very young, maybe Mary's son who gave the information for the certificate, did not know her name and just guessed.

Dec 1851 would also have to be wrong. Looks to be one year out.

30 March
Civil Parish: New Monkland
County: Lanarkshire
Address: -
William Gilchriest Head 23 Labourer Paisley Abbey
Christina Gilchriest Wife 26 Paisley Abbey
Ann Gilchriest dau 3 New Monkland Lanark
Mary Gilchriest dau 4mo New Monkland Lanark
John Foudel lodger 31 Labourer England

William Gilchrist's mother was Mary and that fits for name of second daughter.

Christina's parents
