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.

    MAN KILLED [abbreviated][02] At Pit No. 1, Hillhead Coal-Works, near Kilmarnock, a fatal accident occurred at an early hour of the morning of Friday last. James Ford, who is said to have been a stout steady old man, was there employed as night watch, and had also, during the night, charge of the engine for drawing off the water. About midnight the old man went to mend the engine fire and look after the lamp. But after leaving the hut, he never returned, nor was he afterwards seen alive. Finding no trace of Ford above ground, they went down the shaft, the depth of which is 38 fathoms, and there found him dead at the bottom, dreadfully mangled, and one of his legs literally severed and lying apart from the body. The only rational conjecture of the cause of the accident is, that the poor fellow had , when helping the lamp, capsized it, and losing at the same time his own balance had fallen, and in his attempt to rise rolled into the mouth of the pit. – Ayr Advertiser.

    FATAL COAL PIT ACCIDENT [02] A collier named Thomas Bryson, while acting temporarily as bottomer at Mr Wilson’s Coal Pit, Dalmarnock, was suddenly deprived of life on Wednesday, and a second man, names Speirs, received injuries about the head, and had a very narrow escape from the fate of his companion. The cause of the melancholy accident arose from the cage being lifted by by the engine before the signal was given – the two men being engaged at the time at the bottom of the shaft. An investigation is likely to follow.

    WHITHORN – A MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT [02] An accident occurred in the vicinity of this town on Thursday last. An inveterate poacher, named John Douds, was going his rounds on that evening in the neighbourhood of a plantation belonging to Stair H Stewart Esq., of Glasserton. Alarmed by the approach of the keeper, he thrust his gun under his clothes, with the muzzle upwards, pointing to his head. While going over the fence into the plantation, the gun went off and shot him through the head. He was killed on the spot.

    A SAILOR FROZEN TO DEATH [02] A very melancholy incident, which forms just another illustration of the dangerous influence of the bottle, had taken place in Falkirk last week. James Lithgow was a sailor, aged 34 years, and when at home lived with his mother, a widow residing in Grahamston. About a week ago he returned from a voyage, and he has been drinking ever since. On Tuesday evening about 10 o’clock, which was one of great severity, he was seen staggering about in the vicinity of Bainsford Road, near the entrance to the Falkirk foundry. Here, it appears, he fell upon the ground and was unable to rise, and next morning about 7 o’clock some operatives proceeding to their work found his body lying on the spot. It was immediately conveyed to a neighbouring house, a medical gentleman obtained, and the usual restoratives applied. But all in vain. Life was extinct. The unhappy deceased was the only son of his widowed and afflicted mother, and was unmarried. – Falkirk Herald
