SOLVED - Place name in Tannadice Parish - Dierachy?
« on: Monday 19 March 18 18:36 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

Needing some more help please. I'm looking for what the place name is that Daniel Mackenzie and family are living at in 1891. I've attached a clipping of the image.

A subscription site has this transcribed as "Dierachy Cottage". I'm unsure on the Dierachy part.

Tried working out the place named below Dierachy but couldn't narrow it down with that either as can't tell what it is. I've tried googling "Dierachy" and other similar spellings and couldn't seem to get anywhere on Scotland's Places either.

The family are only at this location once out of all the censuses, so can't confirm it with any other years unfortunately.

Any help on this one appreciated.

Liv.

Hello Liviani,

The place name is Derachy and it can be found on the OS Maps: http://maps.nls.uk/view/74426903. If you look towards the bottom and middle of the map it there near Soutra.

Hi Hannah,

Found it at the bottom thanks! Soutra will be the other place in the census! Great, thank you.




Also it is on https://scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/digital-volumes/ordnance-survey-name-books/forfarshire-angus-os-name-books-1857-1861/forfar-angus-volume-82/67 and here https://scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/digital-volumes/ordnance-survey-name-books/forfarshire-angus-os-name-books-1857-1861/forfar-angus-volume-82?display=transcription.

NLS maps is a great place for finding names. They have digital copies of all the OS Maps.
