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.

    MELANCHOLY AND FATAL ACCIDENT AT BRIDGE OF ALLEN [02] On Friday afternoon last, a melancholy accident occurred at the Keirfield Bleaching Establishment. George Mather, a wright, in the employment of Messrs. Puller, had been proceeding to inspect a new water wheel which had been fitted up. He had just crossed the mill lade on a plank for this purpose, when his foot slipped, and he was caught by the wheel which had been set a-going. The wheel was stopped immediately, but not until the unfortunate man had received injuries which a few hours after proved to be mortal. Dr Paterson of Bridge of Allan, was in attendance immediately after the accident, but notwithstanding the greatest attention on his part, the poor man died in the course of two hours. This accident is rendered the more melancholy by the fact, that Mather had only been married about ten days and has thus left a young widow, besides his mother, of whom he was the only support, to mourn his untimely loss. ?

    DEATH OF MR RODERICK REACH [01] The Inverness Courier announces the death of Mr Roderick Reach, a gentleman long and favourably known over the north of Scotland. For many years, says our contemporary, the deceased was one of our most respected, useful and popular citizens. In 1843 Mr Reach removed to London. He kindly consented to act as London correspondent for this paper (of which he had been one of the original proprietors), and we need not say how much his admirable powers of observation and description -his wide range of reading and knowledge of the world ? and his lively, discursive, yet forcible style, contributed to the delight and instruction of the public. For some months past Mr Reach had been compelled by declining health to lay aside his pen, except at intervals, and his weekly task was devolved upon one whose filial devotion, literary, talents, and rising reputation, formed the pride, the comfort, and the happiness of his latter years. [Mr Angus B Reach, the well-known Magazine writer, is here referred to].
