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 everyJames 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.

    DEATH OF AN OLD SCOTS GREY [02] Died at Tarbolton, on the 24th ultimo, Mr Thomas Stobo, in his eightieth year. He entered in the Greys or second Dragoons in 1790, was with the Duke of York at Dunkirk, in the retreat, his charger was literally torn to pieces under him by a grape shot. He was left on the field, stunned and insensible, under its remains, made prisoner, and only saved from the rage of the republican troops through the humanity of a French officer, who twice knocked the pistol with his sword from the hands of a French soldier when it was held to his head to shoot him. He remained three years and a half in a French prison, suffering many privations. When relieved, he joined his regiment, then in England, was present at the battle of waterloo, and although he received several severe sabre wounds, he did not quit the field till the close of day. It was some weeks before he was able to leave Brussels to join the regiment in Paris. It is worthy of remark that he was the oldest soldier on the Greys who fought at Waterloo, was a splendid soldier, and the very beau ideal of a British Dragoon. He was brother to the late Captain Stobo of the Greys, who died in 1838. He was discharged at the peace with a medal and a pension. During the remaining years of his life he enjoyed a small property left to him by his brother and closed his life in the midst of an amiable and affectionate family. The funeral of this good man and fine old soldier took place on Saturday last; it was numerously and respectably attended, and he was laid in the same grave with his warrior brother. – Ayr Observer.

    MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE AT STROMNESS It is with deep regret we this week announce the death by drowning of Mr William Spence, merchant, Castletown, in this county, by the upsetting of a small boat in the bay of Stromness. A large schooner-rigged boat, employed for conveying cattle from Stromness to Caithness, had arrived from Dunnet, having on board Mr William Spence, Castletown, Mr William Spence, Castletown, mr John Spence, Dunnet, brothers, Mr James Charleson and his brother David Charleson, Longhope, along with Mrs J Charleson, the Rev. Mr. Smellie of Glasgow, &c. On coming to anchor, the four first mentioned persons entered the little boat for the purpose of landing. Mr Smellie was in the act of following, when it is said, he overbalanced himself, and on Mr William Spence attempting to save his fall, the boat capsized, precipitating all five into the water...Spence said he would swim to shore but disappeared...not more than 15 minutes elapsed till Mr William Spence’s body was found... – John O’Groat Journal

    MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE [abbreviated][02] ...on Saturday a young man named George Lawson, a drainer, who lived at Almont, went upon the foot bridge which crosses the Stinchar near that place, to catch bushes for fuel. He held a branched stick in his hand with which he hooked those brought down by the stream, and lifted them on to the bridge.

An aged mother and some younger members of his family were chiefly dependent on him for support....Ayr Observer.

    FATAL ACCIDENT [02] We regret to record the occurrence of an accident at the Infirmary here, upon Thursday evening last, which terminated fatally on Sabbath morning. A few days ago Thomas McGauchie, labourer, Dunscore, was admitted to the Infirmary, his disease being erysipelas of the head and face. Shortly after the house surgeon had visited him on Thursday evening and a little before eight o’clock, he was found lying on the ground beneath one of the windows of the fever ward, in which he had been placed, having, it is supposed in a fit of delirium, fallen from the window, a height of three stories. He was in a few minutes removed into the house, and every attention bestowed upon him, but the injuries he received produced concussion of the brain, and after lingering until Sabbath morning he expired. He was about sixty years of age, a widower, and has left four children, the eldest of whom is about sixteen years of age. – Dumfries Courier.

    FATAL RAILWAY ACCIDENT AT JOHNSTONE [02] We understand that one of the guards on the South-Western Railway, named John gardiner, was killed on Wednesday night at Johnstone station. It appears that he wa sin the act of stepping from a carriage, and fell between the platform and the train, the injuries he received proving fatal. Deceased was a sober, steady man, had been a guard in the Company’s service for nearly ten years, and was much respected by his superior officers.

While doing so the lad heard a cry, and on looking round, saw Brown in the river, the current of which carried him quickly over the weir, which is about 15 feet in height. Deceased was a young man 21 years of age, unmarried, and a native of Barrhead. The body has not been recovered.

    BODY FOUND [02] Yesterday morning the body of James McAuslin, carpenter, Kelvinhaugh, was discovered lying on a raft of timber, opposite the Saw Mills, where it had been left by the receding tide. McAuslin went amissing about five weeks ago. He was in the employment of Messrs. Thomson, Govan, and was occasionally in the habit, when late in the father’s house there, of swimming across the river. It is supposed that he was engaged in one of these foolish acts when he lost his life. He was lately married, and has left a widow to lament his loss.

    FATAL PIT ACCIDENTS [02] An accident of somewhat rare occurrence, but unfortunately terminating fatally, happened on Thursday morning the 25th ultimo, to John Stevenson, one of the contractors for sinking a mineral pit or shank, No. 7, on Crofthead Estate, parish of Whitburn, for the Coltness Iron Company. He was working with his partner on the shank, then fully seven fathoms down, and had sent up a kettle or bucket nearly filled with clay, and as the kettle neared the pit-mouth a stone fell on his head, fracturing it severely. The soil through which the shank goes is of stiff clay, with a considerable proportion of blackstone, and it is supposed, as the bucket was not wholly filled, that one of these stones was adhering to the wet clay on the bottom of it, and had come away during its ascent. Stevenson was brought to the top, and , with some assistance, walked home, a distance of fully two miles. He grew worse and expired on Thursday afternoon.

    An accident of a kind more frequent in their occurrence and also resulting fatally, happened in No. 6, ironstone Pit, Kinneil, on Wednesday morning the 1st current. A portion of the roof fell suddenly in upon Richard Paterson, a miner, while busily engaged in his work. He was speedily extricated by the other workmen near him, but was so severely injured that he died on the following evening. Both of the deceased were widowers, and had families. – Falkirk Herald.

She went away, expecting he would follow. On Sabbath, the waters were very much swollen, and Mrs Darroch became alarmed about her husband, he having not come home. Some friends commenced to search for him, when he was found lying dead in a field. It is supposed he had strayed off the road. There were no marks of violence upon his person. – Kilmarnock Journal.

The melancholy occurrence has cast a gloom around the locality. – Kilmarnock Journal.
