Re: Bankruptcies

Thanks to you both, currie and AndrewP. Yes, I have seen the cutting from the newspaper. I also have Alexander's death certificate. That is why I am puzzled by the reference to his death being connected to Ardkinglas House. This reference appears in a book that I was casually browsing through not so...

Thanks for your prompt reply WilmaM,

Bankruptcies

Hello, I want to find out how bankruptcies are recorded in Scotland and where details can be viewed. The possible period concerned could be from 1905ish to 1925. My great grandfather ran his own plumbing and gas fitting business in Ardrishaig Argyll. It was established in 1901. One of his prestigiou...

Re: Miss Bester photographed outside a house called 'Janeville'

Have come back to this thread after a chat with a friend. It is just possible that there is a Campbell connection to 'Janeville'. My friend says one of his aunts inherited the house - or possibly just one of the floors - from a maternal aunt of hers. My friends aunt's maiden name was Muller (or vari...

Re: Birth place of Alexander Stewart (born. c. 1804)

Hi again Lotsofbranches, Please excuse the very lateness of my reply to your latest email - lots of family issues on the go! Thanks for the updated information, v. helpful. Like you, now that I have been able to confirm for certain Alexander's birth details and relevant family I still have the head-...

Re: Birth place of Alexander Stewart (born. c. 1804)

Hi again Lotsofbranches, Can I just check something with you. It says in your original post that Alexander Steurt married Margaret McLeay on 18 July 1789. It then states that children Hellen and George were baptised in 1781 and 1783 respectively. Is the marriage date just a typo, perhaps meant to be...

Re: Birth place of Alexander Stewart (born. c. 1804)

Hi Again Lotsofbranches, Dug out my baptismal record for Alexander (not a birth certifcate, of course - a mistake in my previous post). It does indeed say "Donald Stewart, Sandend" as a witness. Just to fill in the picture, Alexander married Elspet Grant on the 6th of November1830. They had the foll...

Re: Birth place of Alexander Stewart (born. c. 1804)

Hi Lotsofbranches, Thanks v. much for your feedback. I have not abandoned my family research. It's just that I am now down to tying up loose ends in certain areras. I think you have found just what I am looking for. The fact that it is Margaret Margaret McLeay/McLea/McLean instead of Ann does not ca...

Re: Birth place of Alexander Stewart (born. c. 1804)

Hi Andrewp, yes I have seen the originals. I am lucky enough to be living in Edinburgh so have been a regular visitor to the actual records office over the years. I have regularly revisited this issue and have looked for an Alexander born c.1804 - I always allow for a degree of latitude by two or th...

Re: Birth place of Alexander Stewart (born. c. 1804)

Hello Moray_Lass and wilmaM, thank you for your v. prompt responses. No such luck with convenient relatives I'm afraid. Even resorting to the Scottish child naming pattern hasn't been much help ( Only managed to establish Alexander's father was probably Alexander too as my g.g.g. grandfather's first...
