They are in Cambusnethan parish on the 1851 census, along with Mary Frood, age 36 - this may be a misreading of 'Marion' (see list of children below). Alexander and Mary (Marion) are identified as having been born in Carmichael as distinct from Douglas.

According to his son John's death certificate, Alexander was a 'Gardener', although his own death certificate gives his occupation as 'Orchardsman'.
