Note
Married on May 12 1874 BIOGRAPHY: Born in England to William George Renshaw and Ann Wright. Was a hawker or pedlar of drapery goods and seemed to move around a lot. He married Elizabeth Ann Hall in Pinchbeck, Spalding in Lincolnshire in about 1851 or 1852 although so far their mariage certificate has eluded me. He had one son and four daughters with her before she died in 1868 in Edinburgh. He then married Margaret McVeigh in 1874 in the Roman Catholic Chapel in Dumfries. Appears in the 1841 census in Tooting Infants Parochial Establishment. This would probably be Mr Drouet's Establishment, a privately run school at Mount House, Tooting, to which some Surrey poor law unions sent their children to be educated at a period before the district schools had been set up. The children might be orphaned, or deserted, or perhaps with a parent (or both parents) in a workhouse (see http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/ENG-SURREY/2007-07/1183315509). Appears in the 1881 census with his wife in Melrose but the three children that they had at this time are not mentioned. He appears in the 1891 census in Edinburgh with his three younger children (Mary Helen, Thomas and Catherine Penrith) but no mention of Alfred or James (who was infact in the Smyllum Orphanage, Lanark at this time). He died in 1905 in the poorhouse in Edinburgh. Death registered by his wife, but I can’t find a record of her death. Aunt Cis (Sarah Renshaw) thinks that she met her at one time, and that she lived (and possibly died) in a Catholic Nursing home in or near Southport, where Catherine and William Buck lived.
