Why this page was created.

1855 was the first year of compulsory birth, marriage and death registration in Scotland. Prior to this date, records are limited and incomplete. In 2009 happyHaggis decided to begin transcribing newspaper birth, marriage and death notices, as well as other personal events as mentioned in local Scottish newspapers prior to 1855. This project will never be 100% complete, and will continue until further notice. We hope this will be a valuable source of information for family history researchers.

    Giving dead bodies in loan is a new form of human depravity which had been revealed among the Irish population of Dundee. It was recently discovered by the office-bearers of the funeral societies in that town, that, on the death of a child in one family, as soon as the dues were paid, the body was lent to another family, who instantly sit up their Celtic howl that their "poor dead baby has gone to heaven". After the visitors had satisfied themselves of the fact, the body was again sent on its deadly rounds.

    FATAL ACCIDENT - One of those melancholy casualties which are but too frequent in these times, occurred on Monday in the parish of Kirkmichael. Three servents of Mr Cowan, Barlaugh, had gone out to amuse themselves with a gun, and it appears that the individual varrying it slipped his foot and fell, which caused the gun to go off. The contents lodged in the shoulder and breast of his companion, who almost immediately expired. No blame, we understand, can be attached to the author of the said calamity. The parties were quite sober.

    FATAL ACCIDENT - On Friday, 6th inst., about five o'clock, two horses and carts belonging to Mr Duncan McNicol, Abbot's Inch, Renfrew, were standing in the coal yard of Mr James Bruce, Hunter Street, when a railway train passed, frightening one of the horses which ran out of the yard, down Hunter Street and up Moss Street at a furious rate till opposite the School Wynd, where it came into contact with an old woman named Mrs Hume, knocked her down and passed over her body. The unfortunate woman was lifted and conveyed home and medical assistance procurred, but it was of no avail, for she remained in an insensible state till the following Monday night when she died. The horse was stopped at the Cross without doing any further injury. The man in charge of the cart was approached on Wednesday, but as no blame appeared to be attached to him, he has since been liberated. Mrs Hume has kept a grocery shop in School Wynd for upwards of thirty years.

    SERIOUR OCCURENCE: - The long agitated Dalmellington Railway has of late begun to be formed. The consequence is that a large number of navvies are employed at the work, and have in bands, more than once entered arm houses and insisted upon obtaining food and drink from the inmates. About 6 miles from Ayr is a hostelry well known to travellers as "Duff's" and has long been kept by one William Duff. This was a favourite haunt of the navvies, who, when worse of liquor, acted to Mr Duff and his wife in such an unruly manner, that he resolved to defend himself. He purchased accordingly, a brace of pistols. Upon Saturday night last several navvies were drinking and ordered out at ten o'clock. They went away, but returned at midnight insisting on admittance. This Duff refused on which they broke some window panes and fled. Duff pursued, pistols in hand, and fired at random. In the corner of the road he saw a figure lying and at this he discharged his second pistol. The wound took effect in the left thigh. The shot man drunk and bleeding managed to drag himself to his hut, and the alarm was given. medical men were soon at the spot and the ball was ectracted, it had penetrated seven inches, but the wound is not considered dangerous. On Sunday, Duff was lodged in Ayr jail. He is an old man, 70 years of age. On Monday the navvies in revenge entered and gutted the house.

    SUDDEN DEATH: - William Neilson, a flesher, died suddenly on Monday night in one of the police cells, in South Albion Street, Glasgow, where he had been incarcerated on a charge of stealing some skins from the slaughterhouse.

    SUICIDE: - On Sunday morning, about half-past twelve o'clock, a man named Thomas Reid, a confectioner, threw himself from a window of a house in James Court, Lawnmarket, Edinburgh, and was killed on the spot. He lived with his father, and while going up the stairs to bed, followed by a younger brother, he precipitated himself from a window, and fell on the roof of the Free Collage. Assistance was immediately procured, but life was found to be quite extinct. The deceased was of dissipated habits, and was under the influence of liquor at the time.

    PAISLEY HIRING FAIR - This fair took place on Thursday, and was well attended both by masters and servants. The demand for experienced dairy maids was considerable, and the wages generally offered were quite as good as last year. Other descriptions of servents, male and female were likewise in fair demand, and the wages, so far as we could learn, were much the same as formerly. There were very few horses or cows in St Jame's Place, but there were a few score of pigs, for which the demand was very flat. As usual, the country lads and lasses made some bustle in the streets during the evening.

    The Scotsman (Edinburgh) - Wednesday 5th July 1854

    SERIOUS CASE AT ABERDEEN - A woman, named Ann Peters or kelly, aged about forty, was found dead in her house in Gardener's Lane, Justice Street, Aberdeen, at an early hour on Sunday morning. She had been seen about two o'clock on that morning in the street, had been drinking, and, it is said, expressed fears as to her safety if she entered the house. Within were her mother, Elizabeth Aikman or Peters, a brother, Andrew peters, and a man named Chisholm, who, it is said, cohabited with Ann peters. Immediately after entering her wretched abode, which was the scene of frequent quarrels and fights, the neighbours heard a scuffle, cries in which the word "murder" could be heard, and a fall on the floor, after which there was silence. The police, in course of a few hours after receiving information, took the mother, the son, and Chisholm into custody, and they remain, at least, until the post mortem examination is completed. It would appear, according to the statement of Chisholm, that the brother struck the deceased, or threw her violently on the floor; and there are marks on the body; but the family were, as mentioned, of a quarrelsome disposition; and all had been drinking on the Saturday night. Peters has been sent to prison on a charge of culpable homicide, and the other two parties have been liberated.

    THE CHOLERA: This disease still maintains its hold in Glasgow. The cases are becoming more numerous than formerly, and diarrhea is very prevalent. It still lingers at Wishaw and other mining villages. Numerous cases are also reported from Greenock, and a few from Alexandria in Dumbartonshire. In Charlston, a large suburb to the south of Paisley, a good deal of excitement and alarm prevail in consequence of several cases of cholera having occurred there within the last day or two.

    STATISTICS OF DRUNKENNESS IN GLASGOW: A return, prepared by Mr Smart, Superintendent of Police of Glasgow, shows that the number of persons taken into custody by the Glasgow police, from three o'clock morning of each Sunday till ten o'clock a.m. of each following Monday, charged with being drunk and incapable, drunk and disorderly, and drunk and committing assaults, was in June 1852, 206; in June 1853, 172; and in June 1843, 70. The Mail, however, publishes a statement, the inference from which is that drunkenness of late is largely on the increase.

    DEATH OF PROFESSOR P WILSON, RECTOR OF TAIN ACADEMY: It is with the deepest regret that we make this melancholy announcement. Mr Wilson was a native of Roxburghshire, and studied at St Andrews, where he was a contemporary of Dr. Duff, now the world-renowned missionary. He afterwards studied theology at Glasgow under Dr Macgill. By his death the profession has lost one of its brightest ornaments, and the public one of its most useful and influential servants. The positions he filled as rector of the Inverness Academy, Professor in the Andersonian University, Glasgow, and lastly Rector of tain Academy, he occupied with the highest honour to himself and entire satisfaction to the public. - Inverness Advertiser.

    THE CHOLERA: We regret at announce that cholera has again made its appearance in Edinburgh. Three cases have been reported from the Canongate, two of which have proved fatal. One was reported yesterday to the authorities of St Cuthbert's parish - that of a woman residing at Fountainbridge; she died last night after four hour's illness. A fatal case also occurred on Monday in the South Bridge. from Leith we learn that there have been two cases of imported cholera - one from London, and the other from Limekilns, near Alloa. That from London was a person who was attacked on board the steamer. In Glasgow the number of cases remains about the average of the last few weeks, while in Paisley and Newmilns, near Kilmarnock, several new cases have been reported. As to Alloa, the Alloa Advertiser says:- "While there has been as yet no decided case of cholera in Alloa, scarcely a town or village in the neighbourhood has escaped the visitation of the pestilence. There have been in the aggregate a considerable number of cases throughout the country, but the mortality has not been great. In the hamlet of March Glen alone, however, near Tillicoultry, there have been either four of five deaths. In Limekilns, near Dunfermline, the disease is seriously prevalent."

    DISTRESSING GUN ACCIDENT: On Thursday about two o'clock a most distressing accident occurred on the Roseneath hills, near Cove, a few miles beyond Kilcreggan. It appears that Mr Cochran, grain-merchant, Glasgow, had accompanied a party to the moors, for the purpose of witnessing the fashionable sport of grouse-shooting. He was accompanied by Mr Morrison, a gentleman recently returned from New orleans who though not a sportsman was anxious to try his hand at bringing down a bird. The dog pointed, the bird rose, and Mr Morrison levelled his fowling-piece, but, lamentable to relate, in quickly following the bird in a sudden wheel which it made, he fired, when his friend Mr Cochran, exclaiming "I am shot!" instantly fell to the ground. Mr Morrison, utterly horror-stricken, rushed forward and caught him in his arms, but the unfortunate gentleman had only time to exclaim "what will my poor wife and children do?" and instantly expired. The contents of the gun had lodged right in his heart. Mr Cochran had gone down the Clyde to recruit himself after a slight attack of the prevailing distemper and has left a widow and three children.

Unfortunately, while he was in this dangerous position, the rope gave way, and the poor fellow falling with violence on the pavement from a height of nearly fifty feet, death was almost instantaneous. Deceased, who was only in his twenty-first year, bore an excellent character.

The mate, John Carnan, was a native of Dalbeattie; and the boy, John Brown, belonged to Dumfries; the other two hands, it is suppoed, belonged to Liverpool. On Saturday last, during the severe gale, the Grace of Dumfries, with a heneral cargo from Liverpool, was driven on shore about six miles east of the Ross lighthouse, and became a total wreck. The crew were all saves. - Dumfries Courier.

None of the money he received on the Friday night was found on his person, suspicions are he had met foul play, no marks of violence, most likely explanation is that he had wandered from the road and falling into the burn, had lain there in a state of torpor, deceased resided with his mother and family in Nelson Street, Partick.
