1782 Margaret Pearson birth 

from Looking for birth of Margaret Pearson

see also Jane Pearson &  John LANKSHEAR

Anthony had her as Jane Margaret and I did search for that at first - then 1841 and 1851 she was Margaret. First I thought that was a second wife per 1830 marriage of a John to Margaret Smith but now clear that was the couple who went to Tasmania. So my Margaret is the one in the 1841 and 1851 census and the 1808 marriage.

see 1841 Census John Lankshear and Margaret with Jane Mary - Margaret reported age as 58 so born 1782 -1783

If you can help me find Margaret I would be very grateful please see also Someone else looking for a Margaret Pearson or Margaret Pierson

1841 June 6th  age 58 (not rounded so likely to be actual) so born June 1782 to 6 June 1783
1851 March 30th age 69 so born March 1781 to 30 March 1782
1860 death 25 June 1860 aged 79 so born 26 June 1781 to 25 June 1782

So from 3 events likely born first half 1782

Where was Margaret born in 1841 recorded as Yes to born in county which was Surrey. In 1851 enumerator shows Scotland.
I must be 3/32 Scottish with my Pearson/Eagle/Sinclair ancestors - no wonder I like the Pipes. 
But Surrey or Scotland. Perhaps the enumerator misread Southwark or otherwise he was wrong with Scotland

2013 looking around I found this series of baptisms for it seems one family
as Hexham, Northumberland, England very near to Scotland so could there have been confusion
father William Pearson
Elizabeth Pearson 3 Nov 1775
Mary Pearson 2 Apr 1775
John Pearson 13 Jul 1777
Ann Pearson 12 Mar 1780
Margaret Pearson 6 Apr 1783
William Pearson 19 Dec 1784
George Pearson 18 Jun 1797
Mary Pearson 17 Nov 1799
John and William are names used only for two of Margaret's children

 

Looking at IGI for Baptisms in Scotland c1782 - nothing conclusive
from following I think two possibles

 

Auchinleck, Ayr Father: HUGH PEARSON  Mother: JEAN MCMILLAN - quite like this one

MARGARET PEARSON see IGI MARGARET PEARSON
Event(s): Birth: Christening: 07 APR 1782 Auchinleck, Ayr, Scotland
Father: HUGH PEARSON  Mother: JEAN MCMILLAN
In Ayr next Margaret marriage is not until 1820
mother is Jean ie Jane  and Margaret's daughter 1820 is Jane Margaret

Three siblings presumably - but none of these  names given to her children -

CHRISTIAN PEARSON Christening: 13 MAR 1785 Auchinleck Father: HUGH PEARSON Mother: MAY MCMILLAN -
Mother is May  but I would guess same parents - or are there 2 Hughs marrying McMillans
But why 2 daughters called Christine and Christian? Or is this the boy Robert whose burial found with parents Hugh and Margaret (??) see below

MARION PEARSON Christening: 30 JUN 1776 Auchinleck Father: HUGH PEARSON Mother: MCMILLAN
nothing further found on IGI

CHRISTINE PEARSON Christening: 21 JUN 1778 Auchinleck Father: HUGH PEARSON Mother: MCMILLAN
there is an LDS member sub which looks like her marrying Wm Howat guessing she was born 1776

Well for Margaret above fits first half of 1782 and the Jean (Jean in Scotland Jane in England) is good ie originally Anthony was calling her Margaret Jane and her daughter is a Jane. Looking at marriages and burials 1780-1815 from Scotland People see below none found for a MP in Ayr

Following from AYRSHIRE RECORDS a collection by a researcher (and I sent an email 5/2010)

Parish of Sorn in the County of Ayr
Page 12, #35
PEARSON, ROBERT, Joiner
69 years
Sundayside, Auchinleck Parish - 3 years in this District
Hugh PEARSON, Farmer (dec) and Margarete PEARSON MS MCMILLAN (dec)
Margaret BLAIN
1. Catherine 26; 2. Hugh 24; 3. Margaret 21; 4. Marion dec at 4 in 1838; 5. Robert 10
1855, April 16, 12h noon, Mill Street, Catrine
Paralysis, 10 days, cert.
Catrine Churchyard
Hugh PEARSON, son

From RootsWeb: AYRSHIRE-L Miscellaneous DEATHS same as above

1855 - Sorn (Auchinleck) - Robert Pearson, 69 yrs, (Margaret Blair). parents: Hugh Pearson (dec) and Margaret Pearson (dec).

This LDS member submission could well be the sister Christine

Christina Pearson Birth: 1776   Of, Old Cumnock, Ayr, Scotland Marriages:   Spouse:  William Howat   1801   Of, Old Cumnock, Ayr, Scotland

Looked at Wills and only one was Pearson Hugh 20/03/1839 of Myrecairnie, commander in the Royal Navy, residing at Vellore, spouse of Helen Littlejohn or Pearson

 

From Rootschat Tarbolton Churchyard Hugh pearson died failford june 1839 aged 59 and his wife Janet McGregor died 18 oct 1870 aged 86. Perhaps related to Hugh above


Dunfermline, Fife Father: ROBERT PEIRSON Mother: MARGARET BIGBIE -

 Well a likely marriage and  Peirson not Pearson and 1781 not 1782 so I'm going with Margaret in Ayr

MARGARET PEIRSON (mother is a Margaret but father and siblings no relationship to names used for her children)
Event(s): Birth: 24 AUG 1781 Christening: 26 AUG 1781 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland
Father: ROBERT PEIRSON Mother: MARGARET BIGBIE
siblings presumably
JAMES PEIRSON Birth: 03 DEC 1777 Christening: 03 DEC 1777 Dunfermline Father: ROBERT PEIRSON  Mother: MARGARET BEGBIE
ANN PEIRSON Birth: 29 APR 1779 Christening: 09 MAY 1779 Dunfermline Father: ROBERT PEIRSON Mother: MARGARET BIGBY

This could be this Margaret MARGARET PEIRSON - IGI Marriage: 29 DEC 1809 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland

perhaps for sister ANN PIERSON - IGI Marriage: 11 JUN 1806 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland

 

Dunbar Father: THOMAS PEARSON Mother: MARY ROBISON - I think this Margaret dies age 11

MARGARET PEARSON
Event(s): Birth: Christening: 04 AUG 1782 Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland
Father: THOMAS PEARSON Mother: MARY ROBISON
siblings presumably - well a Janet could be used for her daughter Jane - father is Thomas as per 2nd child
CHRISTIAN PEARSON Christening: 03 MAY 1790 Dunbar Father: THOMAS PEARSON Mother: MARY ROBERTSON
JANET PEARSON Christening: 20 JUL 1794 Dunbar Father: THOMAS PEARSON Mother: MARY ROBERTSON

Burial for an MP in 1794 in Dunbar

 

Edinburgh Father: JAMES PEARSON Mother: ELIZABETH MOFFAT - several Margaret marriages in Edinburgh

MARGARET PEARSON note Birth not Christening

 (brother is a John and Margaret's 3rd child was a John - but neither parent's names were used)
Event(s): Birth: 07 SEP 1782 Edinburgh Parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland
Father: JAMES PEARSON Mother: ELIZABETH MOFFAT
sibling presumably mother is a MOFFAT but different first name
JOHN PEARSON Birth: 24 APR 1784 Edinburgh Parish Father: JAMES PEARSON Mother: MARTHA MOFFAT

A couple of marriages in Edinburgh for an MP and also burial

 

Kilmany, Fife Sep 1783 too late her age is consistent with 1783

MARGARET PEIRSON (too late)
Event(s): Birth: 04 SEP 1783 Christening: 05 SEP 1783 Kilmany, Fife, Scotland
Father: ALEXANDER PEIRSON Family Mother: MARGARET DUCAT
