Please see if they can be found in 1891. Thomas was an iron moulder and Ann a nurse. I have no death for either of them. Not even sure if Thomas went to Scotland where some of his family lived. Other possibility is that he died in England after 1911. Thanks.
Yes, revisiting this family. Many listings have his birth as Paisley but I doubt that very much. Wish I could find his death. I'd certainly order his death certificate because he is my great great grandfather.

Isabella's spouse was John BLACKLEY born Ireland 1800 probably earlier d. abt 1845 ?? The family has not been found in Scotland in 1841 so possibly they arrived in Paisley after 1841. The youngest Ann was the only one I think born in Scotland - Paisley about 1846 but birth/baptism not found yet.
Yes, thanks. I have Thomas senior in census listings 1851-1901. None of the family have been found in 1841 and that suggests they arrived in Paisley from Ireland between 1841 and 1846.
Thomas senior is with 3 sons in 1871:
Thomas age 16 railway clerk born Liverpool
William age 15 shop errand boy born Liverpool
Archibald age 12 born Liverpool
Here is Archibald's birth:

So far William's birth has not been found. He has not been found in later census listings. No death in England or Scotland has yet been found. There is no trace of him travelling to Australia.
Thomas junior is my line and he died in Queensland. I have not found his birth yet.
