  • Notes 


    • William was born in 1838 at Larkhall, which is about 3 miles from Hamilton and 8.6 miles from Lesmahagow. William Watt aged 3 is in the 1841 census at Lesmahagow, as part of the family of William and Jean Watt. However, William is missing from the family in the 1851 census, and has not been positively identified in other 1851 census entries. By 1861 he had married Elizabeth Bertram, and started his own family.

      In the 1891 census Mary Watt, a niece, was with William and Elizabeth at Kirkmuirhill. Mary was the daughter of William's sister Mary. She was named as Mary Dodds in the 1881 census, when she was with her mother and her grandfather William Watt.
