By the time of the 1841 Scotland census George, age 20, born Roxburghshire, Scotland, labourer, lived with his mother Jane (Dickson) Cleghorn, age 58, and sister Agnes, age 17. It seems that his father must have died by this time.

Church of Scotland church in Eckford where George Cleghorn and Agnes Hogg were married on 1 Jun 1844. It is located midway between Kelso and Jedburgh just east of A698. This church dates from 1665 and was a replacement for an earlier church granted to Jedburgh Abbey in the early 13th century on the same site.There is a sundial that was added in 1668 as well as a set of jougs that date from 1718. Jougs were a standard feature in many Scottish churches, consisting of an iron collar fastened by a short chain to a wall within the church. The collar was placed round the offender's neck and fastened by a padlock. Jougs were used for ecclesiastical as well as civil offences.The north aisle was added ca 1720 with the inside being remodelled in 1898 when the pulpit was moved and box pews removed. An interesting feature is the presence of a mort-house (watch tower) in the cemetery that was used to house watch men on guard against body snatchers. On the ground floor is the burial vault of the Bennets of Marlfield, a nearby estate. The armorial bearings of Sir William Bennet (d 1724) are found above the spacious laird's loft. There is a Roll of Honour for those who served in WW 1 as well as a Memorial to those who died in WW II. In recent years attendance of the church has dwindled until if was only being used twice a year. Looming expensive repairs forced the decision to end its use as a place of worship. The last sermon was preached there on Sunday May 7, 2006. At last report the local Kirk of the Church of Scotland had proposed that the church be sold. However, the presence of an active cemetery surrounding the church created complications. Image Source: Ruth Cleghorn Ker; rephotographed by Tim Patterson, July 22, 2006.

From research compiled by Ruth Cleghorn in 1982 on "George Cleghorn and Descendants 1819-1982", it is believed that George Cleghorn, his wife Agnes Hogg and five children came to New Brunswick in 1853. Five more children were born in New Brunswick. They settled on land in South Tweedside, which they cleared and farmed. George died of a heart attack at age 48 years.

Undated large format crayon portrait photograph of Agnes Hogg (1825-1899), wife of George Cleghorn. Original photograph was quite yellowed with age. Image presented has been color corrected to approximate its original appearance. Tears and blemishes have also been digitally repaired. Since Agnes is on her own in this photograph it is probable that the image as taken some time after the death of George in 1867, probably in the 1870's based on her appearance. Source Ruth Ker.

Oh mother, thy gentle voice is hushed,
Thy warm, true heart is still;
And on thy pale and peaceful face,
Is resting death's cold chill.
Thy hands are crossed upon thy breast,
We have kissed thy marble brow,
And in our aching hearts we know
We have no mother now.

Notes: The United Kingdom Census of 1841 recorded the occupants of every UK household on the night of June 6, 1841. It was described as the "first modern census" in that it was the first to record information about every member of the household and because it was administered as a single event, under central control, rather than being devolved to a local level. It formed the model for all subsequent UK censuses, although each went on to refine and expand the questions asked of householders.

It was important for early demographic analysis of the UK population and remains of interest to historians, demographers and genealogists, although the information about each person is quite limited compared with that available from later censuses.

Forms were delivered to every household a few days before the day of the census. These were to be completed by the householder and collected by the enumerator on 7 June, the day after the census. The enumerator would help in the completion of the form if, for example, the householder was illiterate.

The 1841 census recorded people's names, age, sex, occupation, and if they were born "in county". Ages over 15 were to be rounded down to the nearest 5 years so, for example, someone aged 63 should be recorded as aged 60. However, not all enumerators followed this instruction and exact ages may have been recorded as was the case with the entry for the Cleghorn family above.

Notes: The United Kingdom Census of 1851 recorded the people residing in every household on the night of March 30, 1851, and was the second of the UK censuses to include details of household members. However, this census added considerably to the fields recorded in the earlier 1841 census, providing additional details of ages, relationships and origins, making the 1851 census a rich source of information for both demographers and genealogists.

The 1851 census was the first to record the full details of birth location for individuals. Where 1841 had only recorded if an individual was born in county, the 1851 census states the county and parish or town of birth as well.

The 1851 census was the first to record each person's marital status and relationship to the head of the household, as well as details of disability being recorded — with a field for recording the information that an individual was "blind, deaf or imbecile". Each individual's exact age was also recorded (to the nearest year) rather than rounding adult ages down to the nearest five years.

In 1851, much greater detail was asked about people's occupations than in previous censuses. This enabled government analysis of occupations into "classes" and "sub-classes". Masters in trade and manufacture were asked to state the word "master" after the description of their occupation and to state the number of men employed on the day of the census.

The Government also conducted a census of attendance at religious services on 30 March 1851, as part of the project.
