    I don't know what it is about Hand Loom Weavers and changes of occupation - maybe the industry collapsed and they had to follow other occupations? When I traced a friend's tree, his 3x Great Grandfather was a HLW in 1841 but by the 1860's he was a house painter :)

    Not too sure about this.:rolleyes::nailbiting:
    John McLuskey and Janet Nimmo have registered the birth of a Sarah McLuskey on 8th October 1861 at Cadder Lanarkshire. Family Search
    Looks like Janet Nimmo married John McLusky 31 January 1841. Matthew Snr sister perhaps
    Beware!!!!! Us Scots all have the same names.

    Thanks, AM. :)

    Janet and Robert's daughter Euphemia was named after Robert's mother. Robert's brother Henry died in a mining accident, which took place after his father (also Henry) had died. Euphemia took the mining company to court - and won! Not bad for a woman in 1866 - and a widow! ;)
