IMPORTANT NOTES
 
The following newspaper notices have been copied by hand from physical newspapers and microfilms. We hope the human involvement in all transcriptions has increased accuracy, compared with character recognition software often used.

All care was taken to ensure accuracy, but occasionally it isn’t possible to read the information, due to the quality of the surviving documents. When a best guess was made, this is indicated with a question mark in brackets (?). When one or more characters could not be identified, they are replaced with ‘#’. We cannot be held responsible for errors made as the transcriptions. These were made to the best of our ability.

The lists below are in order in which they were published in their respective newspapers. They may not be in strict chronological order. You can either read through the monthly listings, or you can use the search facility at the top-left corner of this page. TIP: If you are looking for, let’s say James Smith, by typing in that name you will get every James and every Smith listed in the HappyHaggis website, which might not be too useful. If you use speech marks ”James Smith” you will only get the full name coming up. You can just search for a surname or even a street name if you wish. The HappyHaggis website if fully searchable.
 
HOW TO USE THESE LISTINGS:
 
Paragraph headings are listed with codes, which represent the newspaper source:
[01] The Scotsman
[02] Glasgow Herald
[03] The New York Times
[04] The Paisley Herald & Renfrewshire Advertiser ( The Paisley Herald & Renfrewshire Gazette for listings from 20th May 1854)
[05] Glasgow Saturday Post &Paisley and Renfrewshire Reformer
Other publications are listed individually.

 

  • Sometimes notices were sent to various newspapers, or repeated by other newspapers, so duplications may occur.
  • Names have been expanded from their abbreviated form to full form to assist in name searches.
  • The abbreviation “Jno” has been left as such, as this could represent either John or Jonathan.
  • Listings which include an initial, such as Jack B Nimble won't appear when searching for Jack Nimble, so it might be worthwhile to also check surnames only.
  • Notices from overseas sometimes took 6 months or more to arrive in Great Britain. If checking for an overseas listing, it may be worthwhile checking the following year as well.
  • The spelling of names can change over the years. For example, It was common to have Catharine unlike today's popular Catherine, and modern day Todd was more commonly spelt Tod, Kerr was spelt Ker etc.
     
    Births – these notices rarely gave the name of the mother or child. The address and father's name will be listed, unless the mother was single/widowed.
     
    Marriages – These have the place of the marriage, the bride and groom’s names, the bride’s father’s name and occupation, and often a clue as to other siblings of the same gender.
     
    Deaths – These often mention the address of death, the spouse’s name, or the parent’s name/s in the case of a child death.
     
    HAPPY SEARCHING! We hope you find what you're looking for.

    FATAL ACCIDENT – TAILWAY PASSENGERS ASSURANCE [02] – Last week an engine driver named James Sheills, while on duty was severely crushed betwixt two carriages, and was taken to the infirmary where he died in Wednesday night from the injuries then received. We learn that in this case, an insurance had been effected with the “Railway passengers’ Assurance Company” only a few months previous for Ł500, which now falls to deceased’s widow, thus rendering her to a certain extent independent of grants from the railway company, on petitions for support of herself and family. This case is in striking contrast with that of the guard, killed a few weeks ago, who not being insured, left a widow and family totally unprovided for. Cases like these bring out the advantages to be derived from life insurance, and we are glad to learn that it is in contemplation by some railway companies, to make it imperative on all their servants to insure, as the premium is so trifling as not to inconvenience to lowest paid servant, in comparison with the advantages secured in case of accident.
