205 We don't know much about William's early life. Both his parents are from Urray, a small village near Dingwall, and his mother ended up in Tain at the end of her life, which is a 20 miles further north. In between William's parents are registered as living in Dundee and Inverness, probably due to his fathers job as a sawmiller and merchant grocer, so William would have moved around a bit.
He chose a different trade himself - plumbing - which would have been a relatively new trade one would think.

He married Helen, the daughter of a local farmer, aged 22 when he was a young plumber in Aberdeen. By the time he is 30 he's working in Dingwall, and they have 3 young children. By the age of 50 he is a plumber in Tain, north of Inverness, employing a man and boy, and with his first two children grown up.

The fountain you can see in the photo above was made by him when he was 56. By the time he's 60 William is employing 5 men, and the family live in a large house with 9 rooms. When he died aged 70 of cancer the net value of his estate was 134.

Her son's records which mention her:

record of Death 1843, Dornoch:
13th Feb, Jane Murray, Relict of John Ross - 'at the foot of Lydenhall wood [Lydeshall wood]'
no age or cause of death recorded.

Is this correct? She isn't mentioned as deceased in son's marriage record, and why record her death under her maiden name?

215 Susanna was born in Hertfordshire, we don't know anything about her parents apart from their names.
She married Francis, a young priest from a wealthy family probably shortly before 1787 - when her eldest child Francis was born.
The polling records of her husband show him living in Lincoln from 1790, despite holding a number of vicar positions in other Lincolnshire parishes, so she probably spent almost the entirety of her married life within the clergy circles of Lincoln Cathedral.
She lived to a ripe old age of 95.

221 Frances was a country girl from rural Suffolk, the daughter of a Mill wright (carpenter for mills), who started her working life as a servant for a Suffolk farmer along with her brother who worked for the farm as an agricultural labourer.
At some point in her teenage years she must have decided to move to the city in search of a different life, because by the age of 19 she gets married to an East End Tailor.
She then remains in East London for the rest of her life, raising 7 children.

Where was Frances born?
In official records she goves her birthplace as variously:

Christening record, Bedfield, Suffolk says she was born 13th Oct 1828 and Christened 22nd June 1828. Father James Read, mother Charlotte Brighton.

Dates on this are wrong, she can't be born after she was christened. Throughout her life she gives an age in official records which shows she was born in 1826. Original record not seen for this, assume computer translated date wrong, and she was born 13th Oct 1826 and Christened 22nd June 1828.

226 Eliza was born the year her father first went out to India as a Missionary. It is unclear whether she and her mother went with him, but the fact that Eliza went on to marry an Indian army man would show that she probably did spend some of her growing up years there.
She married Hamlyn in Bangalore at the age of 16 (he was 27) and bore 9 children in India, before returning to live in England in Bristol and Flax Bourton in Somerset. Eliza suffered from ill health in later years and died aged 51.

+++++

In December 1853 Eliza returned to England with three of her children to attend to their schooling and to have an operation for her own serious ill-health. They went to live with her widowed mother in Bristol. She remained in England because of ill health where Hamlyn Lavicount joined her on his retirement.

The 1861 census records them as resident at Bourton Court, Flax Bourton Somerset (which is about five miles south west of Bristol city centre) with four of their children: Harriet Huntingdon aged 18, Mary Hamlyn aged 12, William Hamlyn aged 9 and Isabella Hamlyn aged 8.

Florence Stacy in her Whitty family memoir suggests that despite a full pension, there were financial pressures for Hamlyn Lavicount: Eliza was now an invalid and needed constant nursing care, Isabella was to go to London for an operation which it was hoped would enable her to walk better, Henry needed financial assistance because his Army pay as a lieutenant in the Madras Army was relatively small, and Harriet, Mary and Wiiliam were all still in various stages of education (see below).

By 1867 Hamlyn and his wife were living in Bristol. Eliza died at Frankfort House, Whiteladies Road, Clifton on 1 April 1867 of cancer of the stomach, following at least two unsuccessful operations and a prolonged period of ill-health.

Hamlyn Lavicount remarried in Bristol in 1869, shortly before his own death in the same year of a stroke at 2 Eastfield Villas Westbury on Trym (now a northern suburb of the city of Bristol). His death certificate suggests that he had had a previous stroke: the cause of death is given as 'disease of the brain with partial paralysis' and 'apoplexy 24 hours'.

Reeve Eliza Cobden
 
227 William Reeve was a London Missionary Society (LMS) missionary to India, author of an early dictionary of Kannada 1827-34 (Kannada is a language of south west India) and co-translator with John Hands of the Bible into Kannada 1831.

++++++

REEVE, WILLIAM, (1794-1850) pioneer London Missionary Society (LMS) worker in southern India. Reeve came from northern England. Like all non conformists at that time, he was barred from studying at a university, but was trained at Gorport by the notable David Bogue.
Reev ws only 22 when he arrived in India in 1816 with several other LMS recruits, at a time when British policy in India made mission expansion possible. He was located at Bellary, north west of Madras, a Kanarese-speaking area, and remained there until 1824.
After leave in England he returned to Bangalore, where he spent another seven years working on a Kanarese-English dictionary. He had previously co-operated in the Canarese translation of the New Testament (1821) and later the Old Testament (1827). In 1834 he left India for health reasons and in 1836 he took up a pastory in Oswetry, England, where he served until his death. In helping to make the Bible available he contributed to the building up of the locasl church in Travancore and Mysor.

"From 1827-1834 William Reeve was stationed in Bangalore, and there completed his great work, the Canarese and English Dictionary. This considerable achievement is one of the many examples of what scholarship owes to missionaries. It was the first dictionary of the language and will ever remain a monument of the industry and learning of this skillful and laborious pioneer. In 1834, through failing health, Mr Reeve left India and in 1836 became pastor of the Congregational Church at Oswestry. He died in 1850."

230 George was the son of a Cooper, lived in the north east highlands of Scotland, and possibly fought for Wellington in the Pensinsula Campaign in Spain.
In his son's records George is described as a 'Crofter' and a 'Tenant' - both compatible as a crofter was a small subsistent farmer who was a tenant of the landlord. He could have been a tenant farmer but that would mean running a larger farm rather than a croft.
George married Jane Murray, and they had at least 1 son.

A croft was a small area of rented land on which a traditional blackhouse was built. A cow or two, chickens, and a few sheep were kept. Oats and potatoes were grown on ground manured with seaweed, dung, and old thatch from the roof. Peat was cut and dried for fuel.

John's parents are recorded as George Ross, Tenant (deceased) and Jane Ross, maiden name Murray.
Helen's parents are recorded as William MacKay, Merchant, and Christy MacKay, maiden name MacLeod.

On his son's death certificate George is described as a Crofter.

++++++++

ACD's notes say: George Ross who was wounded in the leg in the Peninsula war and died aged 40. He married Jane Murray who was one of 4 children. (the Peninsula war was 1808-1814).
There aren't troop records for that campaign, but there are 3 George Ross's mentioned in the meda roll for Waterloo; George Ross, Sergeant in 1st Battalion 71st Regiment of Light Infantry, Captain A. J. Mcintyre's Company, Discharged 14 September 1815; George Ross, Sergeant in Royal Horse And Foot Artillery, Captain & Battalion Major Brome's Company; George Ross, Private in 42nd Regiment of Foot, Captain Mungo Mcpherson's Company.

It is unlikely that we'll ever know if any of these George Ross's is our one, since we don't know if he fought at Waterloo. But if he was one of them, the likely-hood is the last one since the 42nd was the Highland Regiment which fought in the Peninsular war and went on to become the Black Watch. 
Ross George
 
231 John was born to a crofter father, but he didn't follow his father into subsistence farming, and instead learnt a trade, Carpentry. This was probably a step upwards in terms of social mobility in the family. He married Helen, a dressmaker and daughter of a local merchant, moved to the local town of Tain a couple of miles away from where he grew up, and lived there for the rest of his life as a house carpenter, and brought up his family. He was a widower for the last 16 years of his life, and had two lodgers recorded as living with him in the 1891 census.

In 1747 R. Campbell described the work of a house carpenter as follows:

"The carpenter is employed in the wooden-work from the foundation to the top.... In brick-works he places bearers, where the chief weight of the building lies. He lays the joists, girders, and rafters in flooring, and when the outward case is built, he puts on the roof and prepares it for the slater... Strength is the chief of his study, and to dispose his work in such a manner as that what is designed for the support of a building may not, by its weight, overturn it".

In contrast, a joiner:

"...is employed in making doors, laying floors, preparing the ceiling for the plaisterer to nail his laths on; in dividing the house with partitions, and wainscoting the several apartments. As a joiner's work requires a nicer hand, and a greater taste in ornament, his business requries that he should be acquainted with geometry and mensuration."

235 Janet was a farmer's wife in Morayshire.

242 Frederick, born to a father who was a musician, was a proper East Ender - he was born, worked and died in the small clutch of streets around Whitechapel and Stepney. This being the heart of the rag trade, it's no surprise that he became a Tailor. He married a farm girl from Suffolk, and they had 6 children.
By the end of his life he was a Master Tailor, and left 1322 in his will, a not inconsiderable sum gained through hard graft, no doubt.

+++++

A brief look at tailoring in 19th century London from a social report written in 1850:

"The Tailors, as a body, form a very large proportion of the population of London. Arranging the occupations of the people of the metropolis in the order of the number of individuals belonging to them, we shall find that the tailors stand fourth upon the list. First come the Domestic Servants of London, numbering as many as 168,000 individuals...The second in the order of their numbers are the Labourers, who are 50,000 strong. Third in numerical rank stand the Boot and Shoe Makers, mustering upwards of 28,000; and fourth, the Tailors, amounting to 23,517...

...Of the above 23,517 tailors, there are, according to the Post-office Directory, 2,748 in business for themselves. This leaves a total of 20,769 operatives. But several of those whose names are entered in the Directory are also, I am told, working men; that is to say, they act as journeymen as well as work upon their own account. We may therefore fairly estimate the number of operative tailors in the metropolis at not less than 21,000 individuals.

...Adopting the same means to arrive at an estimate of the moral character of a particular class of persons, I find that at the time of taking the last census there was one in every 340 tailors confined in gaol; whereas, in the class of knitters (the most criminal of all), one in every five individuals was an inmate of a prison...
The tailoring trade is divided by the workmen into "honourable" and "dishonourable." The honourable trade consists of that class who have the garments made on their own premises, at the supposed rate of 6d. per hour; the dishonourable, of those who give the work out to "sweaters," to be done at less than the standard price. The dishonourable part of the trade is again subdivided into the classes belonging to show-shops - that is, such as do a cheap bespoke business - and those belonging to slop-shops, or, in plainer terms, to such as do a cheap ready-made business.
Of the 21,000 working tailors above specified, as resident in London, I should add that there are not above 3,000 belonging to what is called the honourable portion of the trade. The remaining 18,000 are those who are engaged in the cheap, slop, or dishonourable trade...

The journeymen tailors working for the "honourable" part of the trade are in "union." This "union" consists of six distinct societies, which meet at certain taverns or public-houses at the west end of the town. The number of journeymen at present in union is 3,000. In the year 1821 there were between 5,000 and 6,000. It is supposed that from two to three thousand have left the "honourable" trade and become "sweaters."
The different societies are likewise used as houses of call for the masters. The men belonging to a particular society, who are out of employ, attend the house at the appointed call-times (there are three in the day). A master requiring extra hands directs the captain of the workshop to engage the requisite number. He generally sends to the society of which he is a member, and there the workmen who stand next upon the books are taken on.

London Tailors in 1897
Based on analysis of London trades in 1897, there were 8274 heads of families who were Tailors, by far the largest trade in the whole city. The next trade down numerically was General Lanourers as heads of households - 3958, followed by Lodging and coffee-house keepers 3349. So London had a lot of tailors.

St-George's-in-the-East and Whitechapel in East London had by far the highest concentration of tailors (nearly double the other area which was the Strand / St Giles / Soho) with just over 14% of the total heads of families registered as Tailors.

"...Few trades, probably, have had a darker history than the tailoring trades of London, and it may be questioned whether any have resisted more successfully the spirit of reform...The tailoring trade, to begin with, is sadly deficient (so far at least as the workers are concerned) in effective organization. This fact, in itself, is not surprising. The conditions of the trade are altogether unfavourable to organization. Work is extremely precarious and restricted - in the West especially - to ruinously short seasons; while the advent of the Jews has seriously aggravated the evils of competition. But whatever the explanation, the fact of dis-organization remains. Out of 52,346 persons engaged in the tailoring trade in London (representing 18,253 males over 20 years of age) only 3,551 are members of Trade Societies...

...It must be remembered, moreover, that the tailoring trade is one of the few industries that have survived (to any considerable extent) the modern change-or revolution- in our industrial system: i.e., from domestic workshop to factory. The trade, it is true, has not been altogether unaffected by the modern spirit: clothing factories have sprung up here and there (e.g., in East London, and in several provincial towns), but these are restricted to "slop" or "contract" work. So far as the ordinary trade is concerned the only appreciable change has been a steady and widespread development which has substituted the small master, or "middleman", for the private worker...
