|The Matriculation records fo Glasgow University have him entering in 1802; his parents married 1787, so I have assumed his earliest birth is 1788. The 1841 census rounded up, so maybe 1788 is about right.|
|Census 1841 |
There is a George in the 1841 census aged 51 married to Catherine living in St Andrews Square Glasgow. Occupation wine merchant. My g grandfathers book refers to him as son of Thomas and Catherine. This also agrees with the directory evidence I have found.
