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.

    EAST KILPARTICK – SUDDEN DEATH [02] On Tuesday se’nnight, a young man named Archibald McAllister, a saddler, who was employed in making and repairing some horse harness for Mr. James Main, farmer, Longfauld, died at that farm-house very suddenly. During the day he was in his usual health, and in the evening attended a dancing class, where he joined in dancing a Scotch reel, after which he left the room saying to one of the girls that he would return shortly afterwards; some of the scholars went out and found him lying on a heap of straw near the door; surprised that he did not reply when they addressed him, they went forward, raised him up and carried him into the house. On examining his pulse it was found that it had ceased to beat. It was judged expedient to despatch a message for medical assistance, when Dr. Anderson of Duntocher, quickly arrived, but only to find his skill was of no avail, as the vital spark had already fled, the young man having expired in an attack of apoplexy. On Wednesday morning the melancholy information was sent to Mr Charles McAllister, saddler, Parkhead, the father of the decease, who came to Longfauld and removed the corpse. The old man stated that his son was subject to palpitation of the heart and recollected of his having fainted on a former occasion after being engaged in dancing. – Dumbarton Herald.

    BROOKLYN CITY [03] Death of a philanthropist - the sudden death of John B Graham, announced yesterday, cast a general gloom over the city. Of late he had been enjoying his usual health, with the exception of one day (Wednesday) of this week. He was advised to remain within his house, and not expose himself to the inclement weather. On Thursday, the weather being pleasant, he attended to his business as usual, and upon returning to his house at night, before retiring, he felt a slight pain in his breast, which was relieved by the application of external medicines, and he went to sleep. At an early hour yesterday morning, an attendant entered hos room, and found that his spirit had taken its flight, calmly and peacefully as he had lived. he had died apparently without pain, his features presenting only the appearance of a person in ordinary sleep. Mr Graham was but a few months less than sixty-nine years of age. he was a native of Scotland, and came to this country some forty years ago, and settled in this city when it was but a mere village, where he had resided up to the time of his death. In his worldly pursuits he met with more than usual success and amassed a large fortune, which he dispensed with a liberal hand. Among the many recipients of his benevolence, we remember particularly the "Old Lady House" or "Graham Institute". This project was particularly a favorite with him in the last few years of his life; he lived to see it in full operation but a few months. "Brooklyn Hospital" in this city, the "Home for the Friendless" in new-York, the "Mariners' Family Industrial Society" at Staten Island, the "Protestant Orphan Asylum" and "Brooklyn Institute" of this city, and many other kindred institutions received of his abundance. His heart and purse were ever open for charitable purposes. In this community where he was best known and appreciated his loss will be dearly felt. Mr Graham was originally engaged in the distilling business, but, we are informed, abandoned it from conscientious motives, and during the latter part of his life was engaged in the manufacture of white lead. Augustus Graham was a brother and partner up to the time of his death. Some time last year he, too, was a philanthropist. The names of John B and Augustus Graham will long live in the memory of the citizens of Brooklyn and vicinity. - 12th March 1853 -The New York Times
