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.

Apparently about 35 years, was discovered. ...the body was conveyed to the police station. During the course of the day, a boy called at the establishment, to inquire for his father, Robert McClure, who had been missing from the previous evening. On being shown the body, he at once identified it as that of his ill-fated parent.

    GREENOCK – MAN DROWNED [02] The brig Sir Robert Campbell left this port for Newfoundland on the afternoon of Monday last, and proceeded down the river in tow of a steamer. When off the Battery Point, the second mate, a fine young man of twenty years of age, named Philip Benson, son of Mr Benson, rigger, while in the act of unfurling the sails, missed his hold and fell overboard. A life-buoy was immediately thrown in after him, but he did not succeed in reaching it. A boat was then lowered, but on account of the way on the vessel it was swamped, and two men were with difficulty rescued. In the mean time, Mr Benson appeared to have struck towards the shore, but soon after was seen to sink. The melancholy occurrence took place in sight of the three brothers, and a sister, who is the wife of the captain, who were accompanying the vessel a short distance down the river. The event, which has taken away a promising young man in the prime and vigour of life, has plunged a worthy family into sorrow. As yet the body has not been recovered. – Greenock Herald.

    RUMOURED POISONING [01] On Saturday a rumour got into circulation that a man named Thomas Neil, about forty five years of age, residing in Gifford Park, had died from the effect of a quantity of laudanum administered to him by his wife. The deceased was much addicted to drinking, and having come in drunk on the evening in question, he expressed a wish to go out with his wife, whereupon it is said that in order to keep him quiet and enable her to get out, she sent for a gill of whisky, and gave it to him mixed with laudanum -a drug which he had been in the habit of taking in considerable quantities. She states that on her return home about eleven o’clock, she found him, as she imagined, fast asleep in bed and did not discover that he was dead till next morning. The case is undergoing investigation by the proper authorities, but the woman is not in custody, as has been stated.
