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.

    SERIOUS ACCIDENT [abbreviated][02] – About three o’clock yesterday morning, a man was found by the watchman on the station, lying in Commercial Court, 116 Gallowgate Street, in a state of insensibility, and blood oozing from both his ears... his name was Francis McKendrick... died due to a fractured skull... the previous evening he had been at a club, practising sacred music tunes. He was a weaver by trade...

    MAN DROWNED – On Wednesday afternoon, James Brown, a pauper, residing in High Street, Kilmarnock, was found drowned in the lade which supplies the water to the Townhead Foundry. He had been seen shortly before sitting on the side of the lade, and could not have been above 20 minutes in the water. He was subject to severe epileptic fits and it is supposed that while attacked with one of these he had fallen into the stream, and so perished. He was a young man, about 30 years of age, and very quiet and inoffensive and is well known about the town. – Ayr Observer.

    SUDDEN DEATH [abbreviated] – A death most alarmingly sudden occurred here on Saturday week, William Boyd, tacksman of Kilmaurs Quarry, called about seven o’clock in the evening of that day at Cameron’s ordinaire, near the foot of Fore Street, and seating himself at the public table, at which was also seated another person of the name of Cuthbertson, called for some soup and potatoes. These being served to him, he tendered a sixpence in payment, out of which it seems he had a trifling balance to receive. When Mrs Cameron brought back this she remarked something strange in his appearance and called Cuthbertson’s attention to it. Boyd was sitting erect in his chair neither eating nor speaking, a strange death-like hue was on his countenance, and a low gurgling sound issuing from the throat.... death was caused by a fit of apoplexy. Boyd was about the middle size – stout and muscular. He was in his 60th year, a widower, and his family are grown up. – Kilmarnock Journal.

    MELANCHOLY AND FATAL ACCIDENT [abbreviated] [02] – On Monday last a very melancholy accident happened upon Ben Nevis. It appears that a party of gentlemen left the Caledonia Hotel of Fort William about twelve o’clock with the intention of ascending the mountain... one of them (Mr Henry Grant, son of Duncan Grant, Esq., of Newhall, Glasgow) considerably outstripped the others, but he waited their arrival on the top. The whole party began the descent together... when they reached the last hill, which descends on Glen Nevis on the one side and towards the Lochy on the other, Mr Grant again preceded his companions. His friends reached the inn about eight o’clock, and seemed much surprised on hearing he had not arrived before them... No trace of the missing gentleman was found till seven o’clock on the following (Tuesday) morning...
