Carroll family tree

Mary Purvis Raitt was the third child of William Raitt and Helen Scorgie. She was born in Dennistoun, Glasgow on 21 July 1903, became a book packer and married Charles Carroll on 3 July 1939 in Camlachie, Glasgow. The couple had two children: Mary Raitt Carroll, born in 1941 and Charles Carroll, born in 1943. Mary died aged 39 on 28 January 1943 in College, Glasgow of complications following childbirth.


Annie Smith Raitt was the eldest daughter and second child of William Raitt and Helen Scorgie. She was born in Dennistoun, Glasgow on 24 May 1902 and died in 1985 in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. Annie looked after her mother in her blindness and old age, and after the death of her younger sister, Mary, married her brother-in-law, Charles Carroll in 1944 in order to bring up her sister’s two young children.


----------


Charles Carroll was born on 18 November 1903 in St Rollox, Glasgow - he died in 1975 in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. His parents were Charles Owen Carroll, born in March 1862 in Southampton, Hampshire, England and Agnes McIntyre, born December 1862 in Hutchestown, Glasgow. They married in 1887 and had seven children between 1888-1903 - Charles being the youngest.


Charles Owen Carroll’s father, Joseph, was born about 1831 in Ireland, became a draftsman and married Mary Ann Porteous in York in 1856. Mary herself was born in York in 1834. All their children were born in England and the family (at least the parents) seems to have moved to Glasgow some time between 1871-1877 since Joseph died there on 18 January 1878.


Joseph’s parents were Owen Carroll and Helen Fitzpatrick - both born in Ireland and both were deceased by the time of Joseph’s death in 1878. The family came to the UK in the early 1840s.


Some details of the families these Carrolls married into are given below after the entry for Charles Carroll.


----------


Owen Carroll (Abt 1800-1853)


Owen Carroll was born about 1800 in Ireland. His wife, Eleanor Fitzpatrick, was born about 1805, also in Ireland. When they married is not known, but presumably around 1830 at the latest. They had at last four children between 1831-1842: Joseph, Anne, Mary and Margaret. There was an Owen Carroll, born abt 1801 in Churchtown, Wexford, Ireland who married Mrs Owen Jones (!), born about 1805 in Churchtown about 1826. They had a son, Daniel, born in Churchtown in 1828 and who died there on 18 March 1846. Whether this is actually the same family is not known.


Since the family does not appear to be in the British 1841 censuses, then this implies that they moved from Ireland to England between April 1841 and 1842 when Margaret was born (I have not found her exact date of birth). However, if Daniel died in 1846, then either he stayed in Ireland (age 13 or so) and did not make the move to York, or else he returned to Ireland between 1842 and 1846.


In the 1851 census for 4 Cecilia Place, Bishophill Junior, York, England we find Owen Carroll, head, 51, Assistant Ordnance Surveyor, born Ireland; wife Eleanor, 46, born Ireland; children: Joseph, 19, Assistant Ordnance Surveyor, born Ireland; Anna, 14,  scholar, born Ireland ; Mary, 11, scholar, born Ireland; Margaret, 9, scholar, born Broughton, Lancashire.


Owen died in 1853 and I haven’t yet found the family in the 1861 census. A widow named Eleanor Fitzpatrick, born 1797 in Ireland, is listed as a fruit dealer in the 1861 census at a lodging house in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. This may be her as a widow having gone down to pick fruit to support her family and reverting to her maiden name.


In the 1871 census for 15 Peter Lane, Bootham, York is Eleanor Carroll, 74 (abt 1797 Ireland), head, widow, retired publican; daughter Anne, 35 (1836 Ireland), daughter, widow, retired publican; John Whelan, 51 (1820 Ireland), nephew, unmarried, painter; Mary A. Carroll, 38 (1833 Yorkshire), married, daughter-in-law, housekeeper; Annie L., 15 (1856 Yorkshire), daughter, servant; Emily, 13 (1858, Carlisle Cumberland); Charles O., 10 (1861 Southampton), son; Frederick Wm., 7 (1864 London), son; Kate, 5 (1866 Oxford), daughter; Henry Joseph, 3 (1868 Oxford), son; and Frank, 1m (1871 Yorkshire), son.


Eleanor does not seem to be in the 1881 census, nor listed as dying in Scotland after son Joseph moved there in the year or so before son George was born in 1873. She may thus have stayed behind in Yorkshire, possibly living still with her widowed daughter Anne and so she could very likely be the Eleanor Carroll whose death was registered in York in the second quarter 1876, age 78 (which would mean she was born about 1798 – consistent with the 1871 census). Daughters Mary and Margaret could well have been married by this date. Who daughter Anne was married to is not known.

The trees below show first the descendants of Owen Carroll, and then the direct ancestors of Irene Cuthill. All the family members (siblings etc) are not shown in either view.


John Cuthill (1866-bef 1911)


The eldest daughter of Bryce Ferguson and Mary Smith was Margaret Bruce Ferguson, born 14 March 1864 in Rothesay. She was working as a domestic servant when she married widower and spirit salesman John Cuthill on 7 December 1892 in Kelvin, Glasgow and she died on 24 July 1948 in Dunoon, Argyl. John Cuthill was born on 31 Oct 1866 in St Ninians, Stirlingshire and died before 1911 in Glasgow, though the exact date has not yet been found. He was at various times an enginekeeper and a boxmakers machineman. His parents were John Cuthill, born about 1845, and Elizabeth Brown, born about 1846 – both in Bannockburn, Stirlingshire. They married on 20 Nov 1863 and had ten children between 1863-1887. John’s parents were James Cuthill, born about 1821 and Margaret Mackieson, born about 1823 – both of St Ninians, Stirlingshire – who had eight children between 1845-1863, John being the eldest.


Before he married Margaret Ferguson, John was married to Jane McDonald, whom he married on 30 October 1884 in Gorbals, Glasgow – both aged 20 and residing at 388 South Wellington St, Glasgow. Like his father, John was a spirit salesman and Jane was a sewing machinist. Her parents were Michael McDonald, a tobacco work labourer, and Helen Limont. Jane Ferguson Limont McDonald was born on 3 Sep 1864 in Blythswood, Glasgow and died on 4 June 1891 at 22 Hopehill Rd, Glasgow aged 26 and on her death extract her name is given as Jane Ferguson Cuthill and her father was now also a spirit salesman. John and Jane had a son born in 1888 in Glasgow, and Jane may well have died in childbirth (the details on her death extract are difficult to decipher).


John Cuthill and Margaret Ferguson had seven children between 1888-1903. Their son Thomas was born on 20 Jan 1902 in Hutchesontown, Glasgow and died on 4 Jan 1959 in Glasgow. He married Jane Walker Smith on 16 November 1938 in Rothesay, Bute and they had three daughters: Mary Walker in 1939, Anita Smith in 1941 (both born in Rothesay), and Irene, born 22 Oct 1945 in Glasgow.


In the 1871 census for Haugh, Old Road, St Ninians there is John Cuthill, head, 26, woolen weaver, born St Ninians, Stirlingshire; wife Elizabeth, 25, born Airdrie, Lanarkshire; children James, 5; John, 4; Robert, 2; and Thomas, 0 – all born St Ninians, Stirlingshire.     


In the 1881 census for 136, Caledonia Road, Govan there is John Cuthill, head, 36, spirit salesman; wife Elizabeth, 35; children James, 16; John, 14; Robert, 12;  Thomas, 10; Walter, 6; Janet, 4; and Elizabeth, 2 – everyone born Bannockburn, Stirlingshire.     


In the 1891 census for Stanhope St, Barony, Lanarkshire there is John Cuthill, head, 24, spirit salesman, born Bannockburn, Stirlingshire; wife Jane, 26, born Glasgow; son John, 3, born Glasgow; and brother-in-law, John McDonald, 12, scholar, born Glasgow.


In the 1901 census for 27 Polmadie St, Govan is John Cuthill, 34, boxmakers, machineman, born St Ninians, Stirlingshire; wife Margaret F., 34, born Rothesay; children: John, 17, grocer’s assistant, born Glasgow; Mary, 7, scholar, born Rothesay; Bryce, 4, born Glasgow; Robert, 3, born Rothesay; and Archibald, 6m, born Glasgow.


In the 1911 census for 62 Batson St, Govanhill, Govan is Margaret Cuthill, head, widow, 47, (publican), born Rothesay; children: John, 23, shop assistant, born Glasgow; May, 17, shop assistant, born Rothesay; Bryce, 14, umbrella maker, born, Glasgow; Robert, 13, at school, born Rothesay; Thomas, 9, at school, born Glasgow; and Margaret, 8, at school, born Glasgow.


Jane Walker Smith (1908-2000)


Jane Walker Smith was born on 23 Oct 1908 in Rothesay and died on 5 Jan 2000 in East Kilbride aged 91. She married Thomas Cuthill in 1938 (see above). Her parents were upholsterer Alexander Smith, born 20 Oct 1870 in Rothesay and Mary Walker, born in 1875 in Beith, Ayrshire – they married on 21 Feb 1897 in Beith. Alexander’s parents were master baker James Smith (born 1838) and Mary Keith (born 1840) – both from Rothesay where they married on 15 April 1862 and had nine children between 1864-1880. The father of James appears to have been called Duncan and his mother Helen; whereas Mary’s were Alexander and Grace.


In the 1881 census for 13 Bridge St, Rothesay we find James Smith, 43, master baker employing one man and two boys, born North Bute; wife Mary, 41; and children: Duncan, 15, baker; Grace, 14; Ellen, 12; Alexander, 10; Mary, 8; Agnes, 7; James, 5; Elizabeth, 3; John, 1 – the five older children being scholars. Also in the household is Grace McKeith, mother-in-law, widow, aged 69, and a midwife; and brother-in-law, Alexander McKeith, unmarried, 33, joiner’s labourer – everyone born Rothesay.  


In the 1891 census for Mains St, Beith, Ayrshire is lodger Alexander Smith, 20, upholsterer, born Rothesay.


In the 1901 census for New St, Beith, Ayrshire is Alexander Smith, 31, upholsterer, born Rothesay; wife Mary, 26, born Beith; children: James, 3; Alexander, 2; Mary, 1 – all born Beith.


In the 1911 census for Rothesay, Bute we have Alexander Smith, head, 40, upholsterer working for himself, born Rothesay; wife Mary, 36, born Beith, Ayrshire; children: James, 13; Alexander, 12; Mary, 11; Grace, 9; David, 7; and Jane, 2 – all the children, except Jane at school and all born Beith, Ayrshire except David and Jane who were born in Rothesay. Alexander and Mary had been married for 14 years and had six children, all living. The family obviously moved from Beith to Rothesay around 1903.

Cuthill/Ferguson


The wife of Charles Carroll (1943-) is Irene Cuthill, the third and youngest daughter of Thomas Cuthill and Jane Walker Smith who married on 16 Nov 1938 in Rothesay, Bute. Thomas had been born on 20 Jan 1902 in Glasgow, where he died on 4 June 1959. His parents were John Cuthill (1866-bef 1911) from St Ninians, Stirlingshire and Margaret Bruce Ferguson (1864-1948) from Rothesay, Bute. The couple married in Glasgow on 7 Dec 1892 and had seven children between 1888-1903. John’s parents both came from Bannockburn (St Ninians), Stirlingshire where all their ten children, except the two last, were born.


Margaret’s parents, Bryce Ferguson (abt 1824-1872) and Mary Smith (1828-?), both came from Rothesay where they married on 31 Dec 1861 and had four children between 1864-1870. Bryce’s parents were Archibald Ferguson (1792-1875) and Mary Jamieson (1791-bef 1881), both born on Bute about 1791 and who married in Rothesay in 1813. They had eight children between 1820-1833 and may well have had others between 1813-1820. On son Bryce’s death extract, Archibald’s occupation was given as cooper and fisherman. On his marriage extract Archibald’s father is given as Bryce, but on his death extract he is named as Daniel and his mother as Janet Hayman (though this appears to be Hyndman in fact). They may have come from Perthshire – in the 1841 census for Port of Menteith there is a Daniel Ferguson, aged 70 with wife Jane, also 70 – both born Perthshire.


Bryce Ferguson (1824-1872)


Bryce Ferguson was born about 1824 in Rothesay and died there on 28 May 1872, He was a fisherman and also worked as a ship’s steward.


The 1841 census for Montague St, Rothesay, Bute has Mary Ferguson, 48; and children Boyce (Bryce), 19, fisherman; Grace, 16; Daniel, 11; and John, 8 – all born Bute. This may not be the correct family, however.


The 1841 census for Lade Side St, Rothesay has Archibald Ferguson, 50, herring fisher, born Buteshire; wife Mary, 50, born Buteshire; children Daniel, 15, cooper apprentice; James, 15; and Archibald, 10 – all born Buteshire. The other children do not seem to be there, though in Rothesay there are others with similar names to the children of Archibald and Mary. Indeed, as we have seen with the Raitts where virtually all children were named James, John, William, Alexander, Margaret, so too we find with the Fergusons from Bute, they all have children called Bryce, Daniel, Duncan, Archibald and Grace!


The 1851 census for 14 Ladeside St, Rothesay has Archibald Ferguson, 59,  fisherman, born Rothesay, Bute; wife Mary, 60, born Rothesay; and son Archibald, 20, joiner apprentice, born Rothesay.


The 1851 census for 11 Brigend St, Rothesay has Bryce Ferguson, head, 28, fisherman; brother John, 18, baker journeyman; and niece Archielaus Ferguson, house servant, aged 14 – all born Rothesay.


The 1861 census for Ladeside St, Rothesay has a Mary Ferguson, married, 62, housekeeper, born Rothesay; and grandson, Archibald, 7, born Glasgow. This might be the family, with husband Archibald away fishing.


In 1861 Bryce is not found – perhaps away fishing; but brother John , 28, now a baker, is lodging in Saltmarket St, St Mary or Tron, Clyde, Lanarkshire.


The 1871 census for 38 Ladeside St, Rothesay has Archibald Ferguson, 81,  fisherman, born Rothesay, Bute; wife Mary, 83, born Rothesay; and grandchildren: William, 14, cotton mill worker; Mary, 11; and Isabella, 6 – all born Glasgow.


The 1871 census for 6 Store Lane, Rothesay has Bryce Ferguson, 45, fisherman; wife Mary, 43; children: Margaret B., 7; Mary J., 4; Archibald, 2; and Robert, 1 – everyone born Rothesay.


The 1881 census for 5 Bridge St, Rothesay has Mary Ferguson, widow, 49, bathing place keeper, born Ardrishaig, Argyle; children: Mary J., 13, scholar; and Robert, 10, scholar – both born Rothesay. Margaret, 16, was a general domestic servant for a two widowed sisters at Doon Cottage, Barone Rd, Rothesay, There is no sign of son Archibald and I assume he may have died..

  

In the 1891 census living at Gallowgate, Rothesay is Mary Ferguson, widow, seaman’s wife, aged 67; daughters Maggie, 22, domestic servant; and Mary, 20 – both unmarried; and relative Archibald Glen, 7, scholar. All born Rothesay. Robert, 20, is a fishmonger lodging in Mains St, Barony. Who Archibald Glen is is not known, nor who he is related to.


In the 1901 census still living at Gallowgate, Rothesay is Mary S. Ferguson, widow, aged 70; daughter Mary J. J., 34, single; and son Robert, 30, fishmonger.

Some details of the families the Joseph and Charles Owen Carroll married into are given below. No information is provided on the family of Eleanor Fitzpatrick, Owen Carroll’s wife, since the records are not available to establish any links. And the family of Charles Carroll’s wives is provided on the page for William Raitt’s children and elsewhere.


Porteous


Joseph Carroll married Mary Ann Porteous on 12 May 1856 in York. Her parents were William Porteous (1805-1882) and Ann Howard (1807-1869) - both from York, where they married on 1 July 1827 at All Saints Pavement and St Peter the Little, York, Yorkshire. William’s name was spelled Portas. They had thirteen children between 1828-1849.


In the 1841 census for York, Yorkshire (East Riding) is William Porteus (35, b 1806), labourer; wife Ann (34, b 1808); children: Maria (13, b 1828), Catharine (10, b 1831), Mary (8, b 1833), Stephen (6, b 1835), Joseph (4, b 1837), Eliza (3, b 1838), William (1, b 1840), Elizabeth (0, b 1840). The actual address seems to be Lendal Street, St Wilfred, York.


In the 1851 census for York, Yorkshire (East Riding) is William Porteus (46, b 1805, Escrick, nr York, engine driver), wife Ann (44, b 1807, York), Maria (22, b 1829, York, dressmaker), Catharine (19, b 1832, York), Mary Ann (18, b 1833, York), Josiah (14, b 1837, York, errand boy), William (11, b 1840, York, errand boy), Sarah (8, b 1843, York, scholar), Frederick (6, b 1845, York, scholar), Elizabeth (4, b 1847, York) and Thomas (2, b 1849, York).  Eliza (13, b 1838) does not seem to be listed nor does Elizabeth (b 1840) or Stephen. Address is given as The York New Water Works, East Riding.


The family is not found in the 1861 census probably because of a transcription error. However, in the 1861 census for 6 Fitzroy Terrace, Gate Fulford, York is William Porteus, head, married, 76, bricklayer, born Escrick, Yorks. Maybe this is William's father? Also in 1861 census for Escrick, York is the family of James Porteus, 36, ag lab, born Escrick and his wife Elizabeth, 33, born Strensall, Yorkshire plus six children 0-15 all born Escrick. This may be a nephew of William.


In the 1871 census for York, Yorkshire (East Riding) is William Porteus (65, b 1806) living with his daughter Elizabeth (24, b 1847) and her husband John Richard Coope (20, b 1851, Yorkshire) at Redness St Yard, St Cuthbert, York. In 1881 Elizabeth and John are living in Armley, West Riding, with five children.


In the 1881 census for 38 Hungate, St Saviour, York there is a William Porteus, father-in-law, widower, aged 80, warehouseman in the household of George Beecroft, 52, ag lab, born S. Milford, Yorkshire; wife Jane, 51, born York; and daughter Rose A., 20, forewoman dyer, born York. It is not certain that this is the correct William as he didn’t have a daughter called Jane, unless it was the second name of perhaps his daughter Catherine.

McIntyre/McKechnie


As noted above, Charles Owen Carroll’s wife was Agnes McIntyre, born on 13 December 1862 in Hutchestown, Glasgow and dying in Glasgow on 6 February 1943. Her parents were Peter McIntyre, born about 1841 in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire and dying on 18 March 1924 in St Rollox, Glasgow, and Mary McKechnie, born 11 May 1841 in Barony, Glasgow and dying in St Rollox on 8 November 1912. Peter and Mary had eight children between 1862-1883, seven of them girls).

Peter was the youngest son and child of Malcolm McIntyre and Elizabeth Robertson, both of Balquidder, Perthshire. They married about 1920 and had nine children - four of whom were deceased at the time of Malcolm’s death in 1855. Peter was probably named after the couple’s firstborn child who had died before 1841. Malcolm appears to be the son of Duncan McIntyre and Christine Ferguson who married in 1797 in Balquidder, while Elizabeth’s parents were Duncan Robertson and Agnes McGregor.


Peter McIntyre’s wife, Mary McKechnie, was the daughter of Hugh McKechnie and Agnes McLean. Hugh was born about 1811 in Morven, Argyllshire, dying in on 6 January 1885 in Dennistoun, Glasgow. Agnes was born on 3 August 1811 in Kilninian and Kilmore, Mull and dying in St Rollox, Glasgow on 8 February 1883. They married on 20 May 1836 and had six children between 1839-1855, of whom Mary was the second. Hugh’s parents were John and Margaret McKechnie and those of Agnes were Archibald McLean and Marion Campbell who married in 1805 on Mull.


Agnes McIntyre (1862-1943)


In the 1871 census for 161 Castle Street Back Land, Agnes aged 8, scholar (born abt 1863 Glasgow) is living with her father Peter McIntyre, 28 (born abt 1843 Coatbridge), head, roller in iron works; and her mother Mary, 28 (born 1843 Glasgow); and her siblings Elizabeth, 6 (1865 Glasgow), scholar; Malcolm, 4 (1867 Glasgow); and Catherine, 2 (1869 Glasgow)

In the 1891, 1901 and 1911 censuses, Agnes will be found in those relating to Charles Owen Carroll above.


Peter McIntyre (1841-1924)


The 1841 census for Old Monkland-Lanarkshire lists Malcolm MacIntyre, 35, labourer, born Lanarkshire, living at Sandyhill New Dunyvan, with Elizabeth (35), Malcolm Jnr (14, labourer), John (12), Duncan (10), James (3) and Peter (1).


In the 1851 census for 308 High St, Glasgow St Mungo is Malcolm McIntyre, 50 (abt 1801 Balquidder, Perthshire), ag lab; wife Eliza, 48 (1803 Balquidder); children John, 22 (1829 Balquidder), ag lab; James, 13 (1838 Glasgow), errand boy; and Peter, 10 (1841 Glasgow), scholar


The 1861 census for 75 Drygate St, Glasgow Inner High has widow Elizabeth McIntyre, 59 (1802 Balquidder, Perth), head; sons James, 22 (1839 Glasgow), labourer; and Peter, 20 (1841 Glasgow), labourer.


In the 1871 census for 161 Castle Street Back Land, Peter McIntyre, 28 (born abt 1843 Coatbridge), head, roller in iron works is living with his wife Mary, 28 (born 1843 Glasgow); and their children Agnes aged 8, scholar (born abt 1863 Glasgow), 6 (1865 Glasgow), scholar; Malcolm, 4 (1867 Glasgow); and Catherine, 2 (1869 Glasgow)


In the 1881 census for Barony, Lanark, Scotland, dwelling at 161 Castle St. is: Peter McIntyre, Head, married, 38, roller in iron work, born Coatbridge, Lanark; wife Mary McIntyre, 38, born Glasgow; children Agnes, unmarried, 18, machinist, born Glasgow; Elizabeth, unmarried, 16, machinist, born Glasgow; Malcolm, unmarried, 14, message boy, born Glasgow; Catherine, 12, scholar, born Glasgow; Mary, 7, scholar, born Glasgow; Marion, 3, born Glasgow; and Jane, 10m, born Glasgow.


In the 1891 census for 3 Martyr St, Glasgow Barony is Peter McIntyre, 49 (abt 1842 Coatbridge, Lanarkshire), iron worker; wife Mary, 49 (1842 Glasgow); children Elizabeth, 23 (1868 Glasgow), shirt machinist; Malcolm, 23 (1868 Glasgow), general labourer chemical work); Mary, 16 (1875 Glasgow), book coverer; Jane, 9 (1882 Glasgow), scholar; and Maggie, 8 (1883 Glasgow), scholar.


In the 1901 census still living at 3 Martyr St, Glasgow Martyrs is Peter McIntyre, 55 (abt 1846 Coatbridge, Lanarkshire), boilermakers lab; wife Mary, 54 (1847 Glasgow); children Malcolm, 31 (1870 Glasgow), general labourer; Jeannie, 20 (1881 Glasgow), tinsmith japanner; and Margaret, 18 (1883 Glasgow), tinsmith jappaner.


In the 1911 census for 3 Martyr St, Glasgow Martyrs (Townhead) is Peter McIntyre, head, 66, general labourer (locomotive engineers), born Coatbridge; wife Mary, 65 (married 48 years, 10 children, 9 living), born Glasgow; son Malcolm, 44, single, jpnsmith in tinsmiths, born Glasgow; daughter Jeannie, 30, single, sewing machinist in hosiery factory, born Glasgow. Also in the same household is Mary Bingham, 35, married, boarder, book coverer (stationers), born Glasgow; and James Bingham, 2, boarder, born Glasgow. I suspect that Mary is the daughter of Peter and Mary given that she was a book coverer in 1891. The census notes that Peter and Mary were married for 48 years and had 10 children, 9 of whom were still living at the time of the census. I can only account for 8 children and presume the other two may have been born about 1871 and 1875.


Mary McKechnie (1841-1912)


The 1841 census for Barony-Lanarkshire has Hugh McKechnie, 30, agricultural labourer, born outside census area, living in Glebe St with Agness (25, born outside), John (2) and Mary (1 month) - both born Lanarkshire.


In the 1851 census for 82 Parliamentary Rd, Glasgow Barony is Hugh McKechnie, 35 (abt 1816 Morven, Argyleshire), labourer in chemical work; wife Ann, 34 (1817 Mull, Argyle); children John, 12 (1839 Barony, Lanark), scholar; Mary, 9 (1842 Barony, Lanark), scholar; Margaret, 7 (1844 Barony, Lanark); Catherine, 3m (1851, Barony, Lanark) plus two visitors.

In the 1871-1911 censuses, Mary will be found in those relating to Peter McIntyre above.

All the children of Charles Owen Carroll and Agnes McIntyre married (with the possible exception of Catherine) and probably had children, though this is not at all easy to find out at the present time.


The eldest daughter of Charles and Agnes, Mary Carroll, married John Hampton on 14 July 1911 at Barony Parish Church, St Rollox, Glasgow. She was 23 and a confectionary worker and he was 22 and an iron turner journeyman. Both were living at 150 Moncur St, Glasgow at the time of marriage. John’s parents were named as Joseph Hampton, umbrella cover cutter, and Agnes Daly (deceased). Mary’s father was given as Charles Carroll, warehouse porter, and Agnes McIntyre. The witnesses were Mary’s sister, Louisa Carroll and he husband-to-be, William Elliot.


Louisa, a cloth folder aged 21, residing at 17 Parson St, Glasgow married William Elliot on 21 June 1912 at Albert Hall, Bridgeton, Calton, Glasgow. William was 23, living at 11 Huntingdon Place, Glasgow and he was a coach painter journeyman,. His parents were Archibald Elliot, a french polisher, and Janet Tripney Fisher. Louisa’s father was named as Charles Carroll, ironwork labourer, and her mother was given as Agnes McKechnie McIntyre (This is the first time we have seen Agnes with her mother’s maiden name as her middle name.) The witnesses were Agnes Carroll, probably her sister, and John Elliot, possibly a brother.


At the time of her marriage to John Elder Henderson on 27 August 1915, Agnes Carroll was 20 employed as a fancy paper box maker. She was residing at 17 Parson St, Glasgow and they were married at 182 Whitehill St, Dennistoun, Glasgow. John, 23, was a cableworks wire drawer and a private in the 5th Battalion, Scottish Rifles, residing at 109 Garngad Rd, Glasgow. His parents were Daniel Henderson, carter and Isabella Elder. Agnes’s father was named as Charles Own Carroll, galvanizer, and her mother was given as Agnes McIntyre.


Joesphine Carroll married James Paul Wilkie on 31 August 1923 at Garngad United Free Church, Garngadhill, Glasgow, She was a 29 year old cloth warehousewoman living at 7 Parson St, Glasgow, whilst James Paul was a watchmaker journeyman aged 33, living at Invermay Stepps. His parents were Hugh Wilkie, watchmaker and jeweller, and Jane Paul. Josephine’s parents were given as Charles Carroll, labourer, deceased, and Agnes McIntyre. One of the witnesses was Josephine’s sister Emma (presumably Emily) Carroll, residing at the same address.


It is not yet known who Catherine Carroll married.

----------


Charles Carroll (1903-1975)


The last child of Charles Owen Carroll and Agnes McIntyre was Charles Carroll. Charles was born on 18 November 1903 in St Rollox, Glasgow - he died on 20 October 1975 in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. At various times in his life he had been a fish restauranteur and a welder. He married Mary Purvis Raitt, third child of William Raitt and Helen Scorgie, on 3 July 1939 in Camlachie, Glasgow. The couple had two children: Mary Raitt Carroll, born in 1941 and Charles Carroll, born in 1943. Mary died aged 39 on 28 January 1943 in College, Glasgow of complications following childbirth. In 1944 in Glasgow, Charles remarried. His wife was his sister-in-law, Annie Smith Raitt, Mary’s elder sister.


As noted above, Charles Carroll, aged 7 and at school in 1911 was living with his parents and siblings at 17 Parson St, St Rollox, Glasgow.


Of the two children of Charles and Mary, the eldest, Mary Raitt Carroll, born 1941 in Glasgow married Donald Weathering Harris there in 1964 and they had children.


Charles and Mary’s son, Charles Carroll, was born on 23 Jan 1943 in Glasgow and married Irene Cuthill, born 22 Oct 1945 in Glasgow, on 26 Feb 1966 also in Glasgow. Their son Mark was born in Georgetown, Guyana on 21 Oct 1969 and their daughter Avril was born in Glasgow on 19 May 1971.  Charles and Irene, as well as Avril and her family, currently live in South Africa, whilst Mark and his family live in Germany.

Charles Owen Carroll (1862-1918)


The birth of Charles Owen Carroll, fourth child and first son of Joseph Carroll and Mary Ann Porteous, son was registered in Southampton, England in the first quarter of 1862. He married Agnes McIntyre (1862-1843) in St Rollox, Glasgow on 29 March 1887 and they had seven children (six girls before a final boy) between 1888-1903. Agnes McIntyre was born on 13 Dec 1862 in Hutchesontown, Glasgow, the eldest daughter of Peter McIntyre (abt 1841-1924) and Mary McKechnie (1841-1912).


In the 1871 census for 15 Peter Lane, Bootham, York is Eleanor Carroll, 74 (abt 1797 Ireland), head, widow, retired publican; Anne, 35 (1836 Ireland), daughter, widow, retired publican; John Whelan, 51 (1820 Ireland), nephew, unmarried, painter; Mary A. Carroll, 38 (1833 Yorkshire), married, daughter-in-law, housekeeper; Annie L., 15 (1856 Yorkshire), daughter, servant; Emily, 13 (1858, Carlisle Cumberland); Charles O., 10 (1861 Southampton), son; Frederick Wm., 7 (1864 London), son; Kate, 5 (1866 Oxford), daughter; Henry Joseph, 3 (1868 Oxford), son; and Frank, 1m (1871 Yorkshire), son. (The assumption is that Eleanor Carroll is Joseph’s mother, Helen Fitzpatrick, - thus Anne would be his sister. Thus Owen Carroll must have died before 1871. Where Joseph was in 1871 has not yet been ascertained.)


In the 1881 census for Neath, Glamorgan, Wales, a Charles Carol, 19, born 1862 in Southampton, is serving as cook aboard the vessel Larne, master George Donald. (The assumption is that this is Charles Owen Carroll.)


In 1891 census for St Rollox, Glasgow, living at 29 Stirling Rd, (flat 3?) is Charles Carrol, head, 28 (1863 England), spirit salesman; Mrs Carrol, wife, 27 (1864 Glasgow); Mary, 3 (1888 Glasgow); Louisa, 9m (1890 Glasgow).


In the 1895 Valuation Roll it looks as though the family was living as tenants at 28 Rowchester St, Glasgow. Charles was a labourer.


1901 census for St Rollox is the Carroll household living at Stanhope St. comprising Charles, head, 38, labourer, born England; wife Agnes, 37, born Glasgow; children: Mary, 13, scholar; Louisa, 11, scholar; Agnes, 6, scholar; Josephine, 6, scholar; Catherine, 3, scholar; Emily, 3 months - all born Glasgow.


In the 1905 Valuation Roll it looks as though the family was living as tenants at 118 Parliamentary Rd, Glasgow. Charles was a porter.


In 1911 census for 17 Parson St, St Rollox (Martyrs) Glasgow is Charles Carroll, head, 48, shop porter in mantle trade, born England; wife Agnes, 47, born Glasgow; children Mary, 23, confectionary worker; Louisa, 20, folder (calenderer); Agnes 17, spreader (fancy box making); Josephine, 17, tin tester (tinsmiths); Kate 13, at school; Emily, 10, at school; and Charles, 7, at school. All children were born in Glasgow. In 1911 Charles and Agnes had been married for 24 years and had had seven children, all of whom were still living at the time of the census.


In the 1915 Valuation Roll for 17 Parson St, Glasgow living in a house, with others, the proprietor of which were the Trustees of James A. Taylor, per James Findlay, Jun., & Son, 96 West Regent St, Glasgow, is tenant Charles  Carroll, labourer. The annual rent was £9. (17 Parson St seems to be the site of the Martyrs School, designed by Charles Rennie MacIntosh and built in the late 1890s and still a school at the time the Carrolls were there apparently.)

Joseph Carroll (1831-1878)


Born in Ireland in 1831, Joseph was either the oldest child of Owen Carroll and Eleanor Fitzpatrick, or the second, if Daniel Carroll was also their child. He married Mary Ann Porteous on 12 May 1856 in York and they had nine children between 1856-1873. Mary Ann was born in 1833 in York, the third child and daughter of William Porteous (also Portas) (1805-1882) and Ann Howard (1807-1869) who married in York on 1 July 1827. The couple appear to have had thirteen children (including twins) between 1828-1849. Joseph Carroll died on 18 January 1878 in Blythswood, Glasgow, while Mary Ann died on 18 May 1903 in St Rollox, Glasgow.  


Seemingly not in the 1841 census, Joseph, as a 19 year old Assistant Ordnance Surveyor, born Ireland, is to be found in the 1851 census for 4 Cecilia Place, Bishophill Junior, York, England living with his parents Owen Carroll, head, 51, Assistant Ordnance Surveyor, born Ireland and Eleanor, 46, born Ireland; together with his siblings: Anna, 14,  scholar, born Ireland ; Mary, 11, scholar, born Ireland; Margaret, 9, scholar, born Broughton, Lancashire.


In the 1861 census living at 13 South Side Bevois St, St Mary, Southampton, Hampshire is Joseph Carroll, head, 28, draftsman survey officer, War Dept., born Ireland about 1833; wife Mary Ann, 27, born York, about 1834; children Annie Louisa, 5, born 1856 in York; Emily, 3, born  1858 in Carlisle; and Margaret, 1, born 1860 in Southampton.


In the 1871 census for 15 Peter Lane, Bootham, York is Eleanor Carroll, 74 (born abt 1797 Ireland), head, widow, retired publican; daughter Anne, 35 (1836 Ireland), daughter, widow, retired publican; John Whelan, 51 (1820 Ireland), nephew, unmarried, painter; Mary A.

The assumption is that Eleanor Carroll is Joseph’s mother, Helen Fitzpatrick, - thus Anne would be his sister. Where Joseph was in 1871 has not yet been ascertained.


1881 census for Glasgow Barony is Mary Ann Carroll, 48 (1833 England), head, formerly servant; son Frederick, 17 (1864 England), stationer's porter; daughter Catherine, 15 (1866 England), shirt finisher; son Henry, 13 (1868 England), message boy; son Frank, 10 (1871 England), scholar; and son George, 8 (1873 Glasgow).

Of the children of Joseph Carroll and Mary Ann Porteous, Anna Louisa, the eldest, married Walter Ingleton in 1875. They do not seem to have had children.


In the 1881 census they are living at 97 Doncaster Street, Barony, Glasgow – Walter is aged 26 and a pattern book maker born in Glasgow, Louisa, is 24 and is classed as a former shirt machinist, born in England. In 1891 they were living at 25 Camden St, Islington, London, where Walter was a pattern card maker, aged 36 and born in Glasgow; wife Louisa was 33 and a shirt machinist, born in York. Also in the household is Frank Carroll, brother-in-law, aged 21 and a theatre propertyman, born in  York. The Ingletons do not seem to be in either the 1901 or the 1911 censuses. However, they may have travelled to Boston, USA on 21 April 1903 from Liverpool aboard the Saxonia (saloon class) – though the record of their arrival is not found. There is also a Mr and Mrs Ingleton who travelled to Quebec from Liverpool on 28 April 1910 on the Schamplain.


The second child of Joseph and Mary Ann, Emily, married Hugh Miller from Catrine, Ayrshire in 1879 and they had five children between 1881-1895. In the 1881 census for 9 Bedlay St, Dennistoun, Glasgow City is Hugh, 26, engineer’s pattern maker; wife Emily, 22, shirt machinist; and son William, just born. In 1891 the family was living in Raglan St, Milton, Glasgow – Hugh, 36, is now a ship engineer; Emily is 33; and the children all born in Glasgow and at school except the youngest are: William, 10; Mary, 8; Hugh, 5; and Emily, 2 months. In 1901, the family had moved to 144 Argyle, West Ham in Essex; Hugh, 47, was an engine fitter; Emily, 43; William, 21, was a railway signalman; Hugh, 15, was a packing box maker; Emily, 10, was probably at school though this is not stated; and there was a new addition, John, age 6, born in Scotland and probably also at school. Mary is not there – staying behind in Glasgow with her aunt Catherine and grandmother.


Nothing is found about daughter Margaret and since she does not appear in the 1871 census, when she would have been 11 and thus still living at home, then the assumption is that she must have died.


Son Frederick William Carroll, 17, stationer’s porter, was living at home in 1881 at 103, Cowcaddens, Barony, Glasgow with his widowed mother, Mary Ann, 48, former servant; and other members of the family (Catherine, 15, shirt finisher; Henry, 13, message boy; Frank, 10, scholar; and George, scholar. He does not seem to be in later censuses, neither does his brother Henry.


Daughter Catherine married James Taylor of Glasgow about 1892 and they had at least two children: Mary and Robert. In the 1891 census for 144 Sandyfaulds St, Glasgow Govan we find Mary Ann Carroll, 58, housekeeper; and daughter Kate, 24, shirt machinist. In 1901 living at 26 Prince Edward St, Glasgow Strathbungo there is James Taylor, head, 40, locomotive draughtsman; wife Kate, 33; children Mary, 8, born Glasgow; and Robert, 5, born Glasgow. Also in the household is Maryanne Carroll, 68, mother-in-law, annuitant; and Mary Miller, 18, niece, boot machinist.


Son Frank Carroll in 1891 was living in Islington, London with his sister, Louisa and her husband Walter Ingleton. Frank’s occupation was given in the census as theatre propertyman. In 1901 living at 26 Leigh St, St Pancras. London is Frank Carroll, 30, housepainter, born York; wife Charlotte M., 25, born St Pancras; and children: Joseph F. 2, born Bllomsbury; Lilian G., 2, born Bloomsbury; and Henry P., 8 months, born St Pancras. In the 1911 census for 15 Fountain St, SW (Lambeth), London, Frank, 40, is now an actor; he had been married to wife Charlotte, 36, born Kings X, for 13 years; children: Joseph, 12, born Holborn; Lilian, 12, born Holborn; Henry, 11; Norah, 6; and Frank, 4 – all three born Kings X. Presumably the children were at school, though this is not detailed in the census.


Son George may be the 18 year old theatrical prompter, born Glasgow, in the household of Henry Plender, theatrical carpenter, at 17 Mowbray St, St Mary, Nottingham in the 1891 census. He is elusive in later censuses.
