William Hay d 10/10/1836 Death Location - Cant read it
« on: Sunday 29 January 17 03:54 GMT (UK) »
From SP, I down loaded his death record, but can not decipher his death location.  The record says "October 10 (1836) Wm Hay Faviston aged 55 Froie."  It is the blded items that I can not make out.  I think the last is the cause of death as it is in others on the same page.  I just can't make out the location.  Any ideas?

Hi,
I would say CoD, is Fever?

Cheers

Agree with Ambly - Fever.

Added - I've looked all over the old large scale OS maps of the Auldearn parish area and the only place that looks like the name is, as Imber has said, Maviston

If it makes any difference, I'd say his age is either 56 or even 36 - the first number is compromised by the end of the letter above it.
But it's not 55 as the 2 numbers are quite different.

Once I look at Fever - it is apparent, especially when I bring it into Photoshop and invert the image.  Looking at the age (while the image is inverted - not me), it looks like 56.

The location on the other hand, the first letter does not look like other "M" on the page.  It is virtually identical to a "T" like in "Taylor" which is down the page. 

I have looked at the maps too and older ones than the ordinance survey with no luck.  Frustrating

There's a Taviston in Devon, isn't there? but....

Could he have died there and been brought back to Scotland for burial?

Hi kb,

Can you expand the image to include more of the text for comparison please?

Letters can look different without a comparison.

The age looks to be either 35 or 36?

CoD looks like Fever

Area of death looks like Fisherton?

Initial on area (Fisherton)? looks like the same initial on (Fever) ?
