Looking for ancestors ancestors of James McIndoe a potter born in Calton Glasgow
My GGGF James was a potter born in Calton Glasgow in 1834.He married Ann Mullin (or Millan)on July 01 1852 at St Mary's RC Chapel Glasgow. Ann was from Tyrone. They had a son James born June 21 1855 in Bridgeton Glasgow.
He was my Great Grandfather. Census records suggest he moved in his early years of marriage between Glasgow and Liverpool where he finally settled. McIndoe family members, presumably relatives, had been living in the Liverpool area for at least the previous 30-40 years.
My problem is tracing ancestry back before GGGF James. The 1851 Census has him living as a lodger at 136 King St Calton Glasgow. What was his family of origin and where were they? Who was his father?
I have found one or two candidates for his father but I can establish no definite links.
If anyone out there has researched this particular lineage or can give any pointers I would love to hear from you.
