Wexford Tileworks, Symington, South Ayrshire

07/11/1844 – Ayr Advertiser – Symington farmer’s market … Prize for neatest and cleanest kept garden cottage … 2nd. Mrs James Robertson, Wexford Tilework …

1851 – In the 1851 census, Jean and her husband George Stewart were at Wexford Tilework in Symington, Ayrshire. Their daughters Jean Baird (12) and ‘Mirven’ (a mistranscription of ‘Marion’) Stewart (7) and son James Stewart (3) were with them. It is likely that Jean Baird was the daughter of Jean, born before her marriage to George Stewart. If so, Jean Stewart’s birth surname may have been Baird.
