This group is mostly made up from family recollections so I'm not at all sure about the order of birth. I need to get back to the records office. Helen McKay, above started off by selling fish from a creel perched on her head. She later had her own fish shop and fismongering  became one of the main occupations of this side of the family.
William stated on his marriage certificate in 1882 that his father was William Paterson, a gardener and domestic servant. 
There is a William, aged 12 and a William J along with Annie, Nellie and mother Helen at 27 Shore St., Macduff 1891. Did Helen have a child when she was only 16. In the census of 1911, Helen was noted as being married for 29 years and had 11 children, 9 of whom were still living.
