Re: When did Glasgow cease to be administered by the County of Lanark (Lanarkshire). ?

For the possible interest of others I have listed below the areas in the date order that they were created - Edinburgh (date uncertain but thought to be 13th century) Glasgow (1893) Dundee (1894) Aberdeen (1899) Unlike England where the presence of a Diocesan Cathedral was used as one of the design...

Re: When did Glasgow cease to be administered by the County of Lanark (Lanarkshire). ?

There are several pieces of legislation which may cause confusion Local Government (Scotland) Act 1929 - came into force 16th May 1930 which was repealed by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1947. Both of these made substantial changes to Local Government administration in Scotland but crucially (...

Re: When did Glasgow cease to be administered by the County of Lanark (Lanarkshire). ?

WilmaH is quite correct - you have to be very specific when referring to an entity such as Glasgow - even as late as the 1970's when Strathclyde came into being the then Glasgow District comprised of areas which were taken from Lanarkshire and which returned (or left Glasgow's control) at the next r...

Re: When did Glasgow cease to be administered by the County of Lanark (Lanarkshire). ?

According to the boundary commission reports of 1892 the City of Glasgow was to be placed wholly in the County of Lanark. On Friday 21st of July 1893 the Bill you mentioned "The County of the City of Glasgow Act 1893" was discussed in Parliament (information from Hansard) - the main objections and a...

Re: Wife's maiden name on headstone

With her husband being Scottish or at least raised in Scottish traditions that may have influenced any decision made. However regardless of her origins under the traditions of a Scottish based society in which she appeared to have lived her maiden name would have been her "real" name and possibly th...

Re: Maiden name on inscription

There is no implied class here and a wander around any Scottish graveyard of that era would provide the evidence of that. Under Scots Law & Traditions a woman retained her maiden name after marriage and simply adopted her husbands name for her use. Although they married in tasmania it was in a Presb...

Re: Mysterious death

Was there an RCE attached to the death entry? I would thought that it would have given more information about the death circumstances There is only an entry to the Register of Corrected Entries if there is any information actually changed. (for example a sudden death occurs and the family raise the...

Re: Industrial Schools

I think the two main options for that time would have been The Kibble and Thornly Park. Depending upon the name actually used in the documents Thornly park may be the best contender as its official title was "The Paisley Industrial School" while the Kibble was known as the The Kibble Reformatory (Th...
