Re: Records of paupers

Would North Lanarkshire council have access to them in their libraries or archives somehow, could be worth finding out. Looks like they are free to view at the North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre, High Road, Motherwell, ML1 3HU on Mondays to Fridays. See the webpages linked below: https://culturenl.c...

Re: Records of paupers

These records are not available on the Ancestry membership level that I have. I see the index page and recognise quite a number of my lot, so I plan to move up to the next level for these records (and whatever else I gain access to). Essentials membership (£95.99 yearly) - no access to these records...

Re: Death certificate

I agree with Elwyn that the word is "England". There are a couple of dots of the tail of the "g", one on the line and one below. I take "present" on many death certificates that the informant was presently living at the address of the deceased. In most death certificates if you look at all three ent...

Re: Death certificate

The term inmate was often used to say that someone was living in another person's house. In modern terms in could equate to flatmate. Was there a head of the household shown on that census who was unrelated to your person? Was the household a normal looking household (head, wife etc), then inmate, r...

Re: Bankruptcies

Hi Doddie, I wonder if as well as Ardinglas House, he was involved in the construction of Strone House on the Ardkinglas Estate in the 1920s. This property is believed to be built to plans made by Robert Lorimer. See: http://portal.historicenvironment.scot/designation/GDL00022 Food for thought, Andr...

Re: Abandoned women, late 19th century

[TS_welcome] A sad tale. I take it you have seen her death certificate. Was her home address on that a house, or a "poorhouse"? Who registered the death - a family member, a friend/neighbour, or a poorhouse attendant. If she was in the poorhouse, or in receipt of money from the parish, there could b...
