I found on FreeCen a man called George Torrence at 15, Lancefield Street in Glasgow in 1841. Familysearch confirms this but not Ancestry.
He is recorded as 35 in that year and as manager of a bottle works, almost certainly in that street, that I didn't think was in operation that early....my greatgreat grandfather worked there in 1851. Why isn't this man in Ancestry?
Ancestry have put this notice on all Scottish records "Unfortunately, we are unable to display the accompanying images of this census at present, despite extensive negotiation with the General Register Office for Scotland. Permission from them has not, as yet, been forthcoming. For this reason, and to enable you to continue with your family history research, Ancestry has heavily transcribed the Scottish Census records to ensure you have access to all key areas of information contained within this collection." Perhaps they haven't transcribed George Torrrence's area yet.
Yes. I just discovered, having searched for 'Torrance' on my computer, that I hadn't realised that a John Torrance, also in the bottle trade, had witnessed my gggrandfather's will. He died in 1889 in Newton-le-Willows in Lancashire...is this a coincidence or were the families connected?
