The inquest usually returned a verdict of took own life while temporally insane which enabled them to be buried in the churchyard.

I lot of the denial comes from modern teachings.

In history we are often told about the top 20% of the society but never told about the rest of the population that built the empire. We are told how great Brunel was but never told how those who built his railways & ships lived and died. It never tells how those labourers often with large families, would live in 2 room houses, (if they were lucky) and that they didn't have access to medical help or that when they got into financial trouble they would be just thrown out on the street to fend for them selves.

You always have to remember, as my father would say;  you are not born with prejudice it is instilled into you. What you have to do is learn from the past and not follow it.

I understand your point and that several groups are trying to deny the past and want to alter what as happened.
I think we should embarrass all our past no matter what. We should look forward and make sure we do not repeat a lot of the mistakes of the past and we can only do that by admitting the wrongs and learning from them and not brushing them aside and ignoring them.

This weeks was the first one I had watch for several years and I remember why I don't watch it.

They made assumption and the basic research shown could have easily been done in 15 minutes.

If he is born in Scotland could the marriage be in Scotland.

I think if it was an abortion and not a miscarriage their would be an inquest so might be worth looking in the papers.
