Looking for information on my ggg grandmother Ann Sarah Hobday born in Deal Kent in the late 1700's. Would like to know when she was born and who her parents were. She married John Williamson in 1815 in Wanlockhead, Dumfriesshire.

Hello –
Ann Sarah Hobday/Hoblay might also be in my family line. My grandmother’s grandmother was Caroline Williamson, born 1822 Wanlockhead, was supposedly one of her daughters.
I have found nothing on Ann Sarah at all or on Caroline before 1841 Scottish Census.
Any information you have on either would be greatly appreciated.

Hi
Caroline Williamson was my ggg aunt. The other members of the family were Harriet who married Aaron Reid ICaroline's husband Wiliam's brother) and emigrated to America, Elizabeth , Margaret, Mary Ann and John. Caroline was born on 8 September 1821 in Wanlockhead. Don't have any other information before 1841 census. There was not any other records before 1841. I don't have much information on Ann Sarah other than she was born in Kent. Cannot find any trace of when she died etc.

My grandmother told me a story that her gg grandfather had run away to sea when he was 12. I always thought that the grandfather was Wiiiiam Reids father Robert but I am beginning to think he was a Williamson. Which would have meant that if their mother had died the kids would be alone till he got back. I also think that the John Williamson might have been the grandfather. Which fits that the oldest son that we know of was named John. It would also explain how a girl from Kent could make it to Wanlockhead.

It is all suppositions at this point with no facts.

In the 1880 US Federal Census Caroline Williamson Reid was record as stating her mother was born in England but Harriet stated Scotland, who was right. It all goes back to the 1841 Scottish census; were they all siblings. I have no doubt that Caroline and Harriet were.
Or this could be an example of the clearences at work. with the parents driven off the croft and making for the mines for work and having the kids there but not really being from there? More guessing.

The John Williamson was an overseer in the mines at Wanlockhead so I don't think he was the one that went to sea. Robert Reid was a Lead Miner. It says on the proclamation of marriage that she was born in Kent.
The children were Caroline, Harriet, Mary Ann (my gg grandmother) Margaret (married in 1841 and went to Austrlia with her husband), Elizabeth married ad lived in Edinburgh and John (Cannot find any trace of him. Have a list of deaths of John Williamson that I am going to look up when I go to Scotlands People.
