DOUGLAS, Francis (Gimwade p.493)

Postby silverly » Sat May 17, 2014 9:40 pm

1851 UK Census Frances Douglass aged 39 years listed at 13 Saint James Street as a widow and working goldsmith and silversmith employing 8 men and a boy. Although the dates of her mark registrations overlap with Archibald Douglas's (Grimwade p.493) by a year at least, I suspect that "Frances Douglass" is the correct person for this Grimwade entry.
Archibald and Frances Douglas had a son named Archibald John Douglas who was born in 1834. He is listed in the 1851 UK Census with his mother as a silversmith.
