WILLIAM McLEAN was born on 11th August, 1889, at 11 Miners’ Terrace, Mossend, Bellshill, Lanarkshire.
His parents were William McLean, a steelworks labourer, and Sarah Oliver or McLean. (NOTE that he has no middle name in his birth record, and also that his mother’s Maiden Surname is Oliver – hence the ‘O’ in his military records?)

His parents were married on 11th July, 1884, at Ballymena, County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

In the 1891 census, William McLean then age 1, was living with his parents and family at 3 Marys Lane, Renfrew.

In the 1901 census, William McLean then age 11, was living with his parents and family at 52 High Street, Renfrew.

In the 1911 census, William McLean then age 21, was living with his parents and family at 22 Bell Street, Renfrew.

On 24 January 1912, William McLean age 22, and Maggie Wylie age 27, were married at 22 Bell Street, Renfrew.

There were 4 children born in Renfrew with the surname McLean between 1912 and 1917, but none of those records are available online. So it is not yet possible to identify any children of the marriage.

William McLean, Robert Lang (my grandfather), and 10 others died on 24th April, 1917, at Villers-Plouich, France.

William was 27 years and 8 months old on 24th April, 1917.
