Researching England before 1837
I have hit a brick wall. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Parents of Thewlis Daye Abt1834–1919 BIRTH Abt.1834 • England DEATH 25 12 1919 • Marcellus, Onondaga, New York
I know that both Thewlis's parents are English from census records but have no other info in England. Thewlis immigrated to Scotland and married Euphemia Nelson 30 Oct 1863 in Denny, Stirlingshire, Scotland.
. Three of his children, John Alfred Bryden Daye Sr, Elenora Kennedy Daye, Amelia Mary Daye were born in Scotland. I believe he immigrated to Canada about 1871. The last two, Minnie Nelson Daye and Isabella Ferguson Daye were born in Ontario, Canada.
He is listed as Presbyterian in Scotland and Free Church while in Canada. Occupations include Designer and wool carder.
I realize that he was born before the England Civic Registration of 1837 . But without a town or county, I am lost
Thank you for any help your might give
