Re: Thomas Smith b 1854 in Shetland

Lauraine Syrnick
 

I also had this information plus a lot more as his brother was my G Grandfather who married Eliz. Albright called Laurence Smith who came to Canada with the Hudson Bay Co.   I have most of Eliz. Albright information except still looking for my late 3x Great Grandmoher,  a Nicol/Nichol tho have both her marriages.  Just missing her parents and it says in the U.S. Census she was born abroad a ship in 1800 Ha ha. She had her family in Quebec but moved with her 2nd husband to U.S.

Thomas seems to be impossible to find - so many Thomas Smith and know he was the youngest child of Laurence & Anderina.  For anyone who is trying to find more information on anyone born on Shetland please see:

Hi Lauraine.

I could not find any think on Thomas himself but I have on his family. His brother Laurence Smith b1842-1904 emigrated to Canada in 1872 may be he went there also.

Sorry I could help more

Thomas was born to Laurence Smith

only one in this Smith family I cannot find.
Thomas was living with in his  Mothers home in the 1871 Census but then disappears. His mother lived until 1898.  We visited Shetland in 2016 but no one seemed to know where he went. Scotland’s People’s has no record of his death. Anyone who can help?

Hi folks, the topic keeps coming up from subgroup members (County Angus, Borders and Marches, Islay, Moray and Selkirshire so far) about why they are seeing all these posts they aren't interested in. 
 
Login to https://scotland-genealogy.groups.io/ to set up your mail preferences or to mute topics and the same with your clan group. If you subscribed by mail or by responding to an emailed invitation, you don't have a login unless you created one previously. Here is the Help doc about that:
 
 
You can change from getting every message to getting a digest, and/or "mute" or follow topics. Groups.io gives us each quite a bit of power over what we want to see. 
 
We owners and moderators have more power to do things like create and maintain a calendar, files, and other cool features, but it gives us much *less* power over each individual's subscription. We cannot change you from individual messages to Digest, for instance. Nor can we change your email, etc. This is all within your power.
 
All the best,

Re: Falkirk Burns House

Anne Burgess
 

Thanks, Karin.

This means that it must have been demolished to make way for the Forth and Clyde Canal, rather than the Union Canal or any later development. So the canal company must have acquired the property, which means that there will be some record in the Registers of Sasines. These are in the National Records of Scotland, and the Abridgments of Sasines have been partly digitised, so when the system isn't being temperamental (it throws a wobbly from time to time) it shouldn't be too hard to find it. However it would mean a visit to the Historical Search Room in Edinburgh.

It might be worth dropping a line to Falkirk Archives, however. https://www.falkirk.gov.uk/services/sport-leisure-culture/heritage/archives.aspx - they are actually in Callander House, which is not far from the Union Canal.

Also, this was during the lifetime of Robert Burns (1859-1796) so it cannot have anything to do with him, and references to Ellisland, Dumfries etc are totally irrelevant.

Unfortunately I don't know the dates. All I know is that when the canal was built, it was demolished. It probably was around 1790. The Henderson family lived there, they married into the Callender family.

As far as I know there are no canals anywhere near Ellisland, or in Dumfries-shire or Ayrshire.

Karina, when do you think this Burns House might have been demolished?

The Forth and Clyde Canal passes through Falkirk. It was opened in 1790. https://www.geograph.org.uk/snippet/19721

In 1822 the Union Canal, linking Edinburgh with the Forth and Clyde Canal, was opened. See https://www.geograph.org.uk/snippet/12001

In the 1930s the Union Canal was closed and the flight of locks at Falkirk was built on.

In the late 20th century the Union Canal was restored and the Falkirk Wheel was built to replace the flight of locks and reinstate the link between the two canals. http://www.geograph.org.uk/gridref/NS8580

So it would be really useful to know roughly when you think this 'Burns House' might have been demolished.

Also, do you think it had anything to do with Robert Burns, or are the references to places associated with him red herrings?

Anne

Try the Canadian, USA and Australian census for after 1871. Those were the most common places to emigrate, I think. I would start with the 1881, then the 1891....worth the try. Good luck, Goldie

Hi 

The Islay group is a sub-group of the Scots group. We seem to have be automatically subscribed to both.

Anybody have any information about Burns House. It doesn't exist anymore, but was demolished to make way for a canal or something. I can't find anything about it. Hoping someone out there does.

I have been wondering the same thing. All of my Scottish ancestors came from Islay.

Yes, I agree. I thought it was just Islay, but I am inundated now with other emails. So much so that I’ve been thinking of unsubscribing as there’s too much that’s of no relevance.
