I have recently discovered a 'missing' AIRTH family member!
Jean AIRTH was born May 1832, d/o James AIRTH & Jean McNAUGHT in Lanark county Scotland.
She married William FERGUSON on Dec 31 1850 in Glasgow and nothing more is know of them at this moment until their daughter Janet is born in 1862 in Chorlton on Medlock near Manchester Lancashire England.
More children follow, all in Chorlton: Kate in 1862; married Henry HOCKENHULL in 1897 Louisa in 1867; married Edward SHAW in 1897 Henry in 1873 Edwin Airth in 1877; married Cora Rosetta SPELMAN in 1899
Here they are in 1881 Census and the parents in the 1901 Census--
