Dear Liz, Thank-you for taking the time to post a message. I have your Johns DOB as 16/7/1811 in Ratho,but it will be the same person. I have census records for 1841 for James Whigam and Margaret Baxter and 1851 record for Margaret Baxter only. James must have died within that 10year period but I have yet to locate the exact date. I also have information from the poor register for an application made for aid on 12/12/1898 by your John Whigham,which gives current details of his children James,William,Thomas,Mary and Margaret. I have managed to find details of Margaret Baxters parents and children in an effort that this might lead me further back in the Whigham line..not so far I am afraid but I live in hope. I would be happy to share any information that might be of help to you.
