The 1841 census for Springburn, north of Glasgow, recorded Peter Quigly aged 8 years living in Wright Street with his parents and younger sister Martha. Peter had been born outside of Lanarkshire.
The 1851 census recorded Peter living at 48 Burnside Street, Blackfriars, Glasgow, in the family home. He was aged 18 years, unmarried, and was a printer. He had been born in Johnstone, Renfrewshire.
APPLICATION FOR PARISH RELIEF
Peter Quigley, aged 20 and born in Johnston, Renfrewshire, residing at 48 Burnside one stair up right door, applied for parochial relief on November 30 1852. He was a single man, a piecer in the cotton mill.
He was applying on account of his poor health, and 'see Dr Harvey' was written in as a note here.
His residences were given as:
present house 5 years
Havannah 2 years
Muse lane 3 years
Lodgwell 2 years
It goes on: 'Applicant has always resided with his parents all his days'. An earlier application had been made for him under his father's name (book 4 December 1850 page 32, but this was not available). He was residing in his father's house at that time but they were so poor they could not support him. His father was a cotton spinner and only occasionally employed. The mother worked winding yarn when she could get it.
A note for 2 December 1852 was not clear enough to decipher except that it ended in 'house' so possibly Peter was admitted to the poorhouse.
The next note was dated 6 January 1853:
'The above left the hospital 2 weeks ago at his own request. He now applies for outdoor relief, he is confined to bed'. 'See Dr Harvey' was then added, and the date 7 January 1853.
