1851 Census

The One Name Study analysis pages have been republished to include more data about the RUNCIMAN-like names from assorted 1850/1/2 census records.
It's going to be an interesting exercise reconciling the discrepancies between the various sources: FamilySearch, Ancestry, FindMyPast, ScotlandsPeople just being some of them, most of which disagree with each other on both the names and the numbers thereof.
These are totals only, the investigations are very much ongoing, and in background mode.

Examining the Canadian data did lead me to conclude that the Andrew, marr. to Margaret THOMSON, and in Ontario by 1846 at least, just has to be the nephew of the James married to Janet HOGG already in Ontario by 1833.
He has been connected to that family on that assumption, documented on his page in the lineage section.
