BMDB data

     William McAdie was born in 1830 Wick, CAI, SCT.5
     William McAdie was born on 3 Apr 1830 Killimster, Par. of Wick, CAI, SCT.2,1 He was baptized on 24 Feb 1832 Wick, CAI; entries for 24th Feb (IGI has 2 Mar 1832) include these two baptisms for children of George McAdie and Elizabeth Rosie, reading:
McAdie George, Grieve at Killimster, had by his wife Elizabeth Rosie a son born Decr 14th 1831 & bapd James. - Witt. David Farqhuar, Farm Servant at Killimster & Margaret Leith there. - Also a son born April 3rd 1830, & bapd William - Witt. Jean McAdie in Windlass & Donald Scott, Servant in Ackergill.1,6
     William McAdie married Sarah Jane Abbott on 3 Jun 1857 in the District Ch of St Peter, Par. of Stepney, MDX, ENG, cert. shows William as 26, HM Customs, s/o George McADIE, farmer; Sarah Jane as 21 d/o Charles Carrell ABBOTT, clerk Inland Revenue; Both were resid. 2 Maria Terrace; Wit: Charles C & Rebekah ABBOTT (Kate advises father and sister to Sarah.)7,8,9
     William McAdie died on 30 Jul 1882 Boleyn Rd (7), Upton, Dist of West Ham, ESS, ENG, at age 52; cert. shows William George as 52, Custom House Officer; c.o.d. cancer of stomach 9 mths & ?dropsy?; Inf. son C McADIE present at death, 7 Boleyn Rd, Upton.10,11
     With a marriage cert. showing William's father as George McADIE, farmer, it is highly likely that William married to Sarah ABBOTT is indeed the son of George & Elizabeth (ROSIE) McADIE of Hillhead.
DNA matches have begun to arrive between descendants of William and descendants of other McADIE families, so I've bitten the bullet and joined the family up.

There are/were other candidates.
Some have been gradually eliminated from inquiries.
Rejected:
William son of George & Margaret (LEVACH) McADIE. Although his brother Robert was also a Customs Officer, he couldn't be in two places in 1861, and it's rather hard to appear in the 1871 and 1881 census if you've died in 1865 (single, from Wick).
Still to be eliminated from inquiries:
William, in Australia in Ararat (VIC), 1874 where Harold Henderson McADIE was born to Jessie McADIE, dtr of Robert & Ann (MEASON) McADIE.
This William may, or may not, be the one supposedly marrying a Janet MURRAY in 1853 - where? VIC?12,13,14

Census/Where lived/Occupations

     William McAdie appeared on the census of 1841 Hillhead, Par. of Wick, CAI, SCT, in the household of George McAdie and Elizabeth McAdie and is assumed to be a son.15,2
     It is possible that William McAdie was Glasgow St David, LKS, SCT, in 1851 this being, to date, the only candidate for William son of George and Elizabeth (ROSIE) McADIE in 1851. If so he is as a joiner in Glasgow, lodging in the hsehold of a MacKAY couple from Sutherland and Caithness. No obvious family connection as yet. However the occupation seems unlikely. We do know that the Glasgow joiner is unlikely to be the joiner William son of George and Margaret (LEVACH) McADIE though, as he was at home with his parents in that census.16 It is possible that William McAdie and James Bain were 18 Margaret St, Glasgow St David, LKS, SCT, in 1851 MacKAY: John 41 breaksman on railb Bover Fa, SUT; wife Janet 40 b Thurso, CAI; Children: Catherine 9 b Barbead, Renfrewshire; Alexander 6 scholar, Janet 4, Murray 3, William 1 all b Glasgow; Lodgers: James BAIN 22 shoemaker b Bower; William McCADIE 21 joiner b Wick;
However, for this to be the William who married Sarah ABBOTT, he has to have gone from farmer's son to joiner to Customs officer, which seems an unlikely, although not impossible, career path.17,18
     William McAdie appeared on the census of 7 Apr 1861 Mile End Old Town, Par. of Trinity, LND, ENG, with Sarah Jane Abbott, enumerated as McADIE: William 31 outdoor officer HMC b Caithness, SCT; wife Sarah I 25 b Deal, KEN; Children: Ellen A 3 b Ratcliffe, MDX, Alice L A 3 mos b Bow, MDX; Visitor: DARACHA, gentleman's servant b Bombay.19
     William McAdie was shown as the head of the household in the census of 1871 2 Longfellow Rd East, Mile End Old Town, Par. of Trinity, LND, ENG, with Sarah enumerated as McADIE: William 40 outdoor officer H M Customs b Edin SCT; wife Sarah A 35 b Deal, KEN; Children: Elizabeth A 13 b Stepney MDX, Alice I A 10 scholar, Charles 6 scholar, William G 3, Laura M M 6mos, all b Mile End.7
     The census of 1881 showed William with his wife Sarah, their sons Charles, Albert and William, their dtrs Louisa and Ada Boleyn Rd 7 Margaret Tce, West Ham, ESS, ENG, household enumerated as McADIE: William 51 officer customs, b Caithness, SCT; wife Sarah Jane 45 b Deal, KEN: Children: Charles 16, William G 13 scholar, Louisa 6 scholar, all b Mile End MDX; Alfred 2 b Plaistow ESS; Ada M 6mos b ?Upton?, ESS.20

Names

     William McAdie was also known as William McAdie.5 As of 1882, William McAdie was also known as William George McAdie.10

All the other info

     William McAdie married to Janet MURRAY in 1853, with a son John, either AUS or SCT and William McAdie the son of George McADIE and Elizabeth ROSIE, with them in 1841 at Hillhead in 1853 are possibly the same person.21
     Another potential duplicate of William McAdie is William McAdie; living Ararat, Ripon VIC in 1874 at whose residence Jessie, who would be a niece, gave birth to Harold Henderson McADIE; the other the son of George McADIE and Elizabeth ROSIE, with them in 1841 at Hillhead.22 Yet another possible duplicate for William is William McAdie one with HM Customs in London, married to Sarah ABBOTT, father George, a farmer; the other the son of George McADIE and Elizabeth ROSIE, with them in 1841 at Hillhead (thought there was a better match with George/Margaret, George being s/o William and Susannah (MILLICAN) but he died single in Forres).
It is highly possible that the one married to Sarah is George and Elizabeth's William, but I'd be happier if I could definitively find him in 1851, and/or rule out the one married to Janet MURRAY, and the one living in Ararat (VIC) in 1874 (who may be one and the same William.)16,5
