bullet  General Notes:

There is both a Church record and a Civil record of his marriage with Eleanor. The Civil record records that he was a Gamekeeper, aged 22, address as Derrycar, and that he was a Bachelor. His father is named as William, a Labourer. Eleanor is named as Ellen, aged 22, living at Tullyroan and a Spinster. Her father is named as John, a Labourer. Witnesses were Alfred Hickie and James Mills.

George's age at the time of his marriage would put his birth year at about 1848 which is at odds with later documents (see below). I'm inclined to trust his marraige record over these later documents.

George's daughter, Ann Jane was born in Glasgow in 1874 so George and Ellen emigrated to Scotland sometime between Dec 1870 and June 1874.

At the time of the 1881 Census he was living at 18 North St, Barony, Glasgow. He was recorded as 53 years of age, a General Labourer, born Ireland. Living here with him were: wife Ellen, aged 28, born Ireland; daughter Ann Jane, aged 6, born Glasgow; son George, aged 3, born Glasgow. Also living here was a William J., recorded as "son", aged 2, born Glasgow. In fact no record can be found of a William Hill born in Glasgow in 1879. I believe this is actually William John Fullerton, the illegitimate son of his wife's sister, Mary Jane (who was also living at this same address with her new husband). Also living here was a Boarder, Mary Campbell, 27 a French Polisher, born in Skye, Inverness.

At the time of the 1891 Census he was living at 2 Parson St, Barony, Glasgow. He was aged 52 (inconsistent with the 1881 Census by 10 years), occupation Sweeper in Cleansing Dept, born in Ireland. Living with him were his wife Ellen, aged 40, a Washer Woman, working on her own account (ie not employed by someone else), born Ireland; daughter Anne, aged 17, occupation Sponger in Pottery, born in Partick (she was to die later this year); son George, aged 14, a Bottle Capper, born Partick; son Edward, a Scholar, born Glasgow; and son David, aged 4, born Glasgow. 2 Parson St Glasgow is the address he died at so he was probably living here at the time of the 1901 Census too. He was recorded as a tenant at this address in the 1905 Valuation Rolls, occupation Labourer. His rent was 7 pounds, 7 Shillings per annum.

I can find no record of the family in the 1901 census.

Tragically, two of George and Eleanor's children, Edward and David, were killed in action in France in WW1. Their daughter, Ann, died at age 17 without bearing any children and the surviving son, George died a bachelor so there are no descendants.
