Re: Precognition

In this case the "Precognition" would have referred to the formal interview of witnesses and a review of the evidence by the Procurator Fiscal. This is partially to see if proceedings need to be taken further or if there were anything suspicious about the matter.

Re: Death Question

You may also find that they may have been buried with deceased grandparents or other close relative in a lair that the family already owned . This was certainly the case when I found two infants recorded in the lair records buried with my great grandparents.

Re: 19 Howard St

Have just found and irregular marriage in my family tree at 19 Howard Street on warrant from Sherrif Subsitute of Lanarkshire. As they already had 3 children since 8 years earlier would that have been the kind of evidence required? So is the marriage official from the date of the warrant? This has ...

Re: Seemingly Missing Marriage Record

The gremlins appear to have struck your post - you state they were born in April 1855 and married in April 1855 - a bit young :( Given the lack of any official record have you considered that their marriage may have taken one of the forms of so called "irregular marriages". The most common form of t...

Re: Census 1921

In theory it should be but in the past there has often been a delay. On their website Scotlands People state that the release date for the 1921 census is 2021 but the problem is the timescale for digitisation IF the work is currently ongoing then January 2022 appears a reasonable target but if the w...

Re: Mining Death Registered A Year Later?

Just an add-on Although It became compulsory to Register a death with various amendments from 1855 onwards in Scotland the attendance of a Medical Practitioner was a very grey area. Like the sitiuation reported in Ireland Doctors in Scotland were reluctant to attend a death over the matter of fees a...

Re: Mining Death Registered A Year Later?

You don't say who initially registered the death. As the RCE mentions a precognition regarding her death this infers that there was an investigation held by the Procurator Fiscal into the circumstances. Only natural as the PF has the responsibility of investigating all deaths in public places and in...
