Hi, Thank you for your response.Since I only knew of James Westall's occupation as basketmaker, I was told that information didn't match the records. It's possible the Westall name was misspelled and James could have had another occupation before brushmaker, but I have no way of knowing if this is the correct couple.
The 1841 census doesn't help identify my Alice Kenyon, as there are a few of the same age,same area,not living with their parents.
My James & Alice were living in Greenock,Scotland in 1851,listed as Westhall.
Am I overlooking something? Any further suggestions? Best wishes, Nancy
