1. LINDSAY, Matthew

MORAN, Margaret

  • Born: 1826, Ireland 2
  • Marriage (1): LINDSAY, Matthew on 30 October 1868 in Bothwell Manse, Bothwell Parish, Lanarkshire, Scotland 1
  • Died: 9 November 1881 at 6.45 am, 14 Addie's Square, Bellshill, Lanarkshire, Scotland 2

   Cause of her death was cancer of the uterus.

   Other names for Margaret were LINDSAY, Margaret, MORN, Margaret, MORRAN, Margaret and MORREN, Margaret.1

  General Notes:

When Margaret Moran died in 1881 her recorded age at death was 49 years. She was recorded as an agricultural servant and widow of Matthew Lindsay, coal miner.

  Research Notes:


The age at death recorded in Margaret Moran's death certificate seems somewhat low. In the 1861 census her age was noted as 34 years, her husband's 43 years, and their eldest child 14 years. using the age at death the change would be that in 1861 Margaret was only 29 years old and therefore had her child when 15 years old. her marriage certificate in 1868 recorded her as 43 years old. The 1871 census recorded her as 48 years.

More work needs done here.

  Medical Notes:

Thomas Mc ? (unclear), son in law of the deceased woman, who was present where the death occurred, gave notice of Margaret Moran's death.

Margaret married Matthew LINDSAY, son of Thomas LINDSAY and Jane KER, on 30 October 1868 in Bothwell Manse, Bothwell Parish, Lanarkshire, Scotland.1 (Matthew LINDSAY was born in 1817 in Ireland 2 and died before 27 May 1878 2.)

  Marriage Notes:

The marriage took place according to the forms of the Established Church of Scotland.

Matthew Lindsay was a collier, 52 years old. Margaret Morren was recorded as 43 years of age and she made her X mark.

Their address was Addie's Square Bellshill.
