Scotland / Re: Curling match, 1955
« on: Wednesday 16 September 20 01:19 BST (UK)  »
A G*****e search for ďScotland versus USA curling 1955Ē returned a few interesting pieces.  One report about the ĎScot Tourí of 1955 on the United States Womenís Curling Association (uswca) website has a photograph of the team members as they are about to board the plane to travel to Scotland. The pictured team members are named and one is Mrs Ross Bennett.  The report gives some information but I donít think it include dates or venues of planned matches - I donít want to go back and check in case I loose this reply!   
It does say that the article is printed in the United States Womenís Curling Association Historical Review, 1947 to 1997.   
Hope it is of some interest.

Good morning, neillers1, and welcome to Rootschat.
I agree with your reading of the names on the certificate.  Re his motherís maiden surname , and his wifeís maiden surname, I think the spelling is Macaulay - the second-last letter an  a  and not an  e .    His motherís first name is Anne. The e at the end is quite flat, similar to several other e on the certificate.   
One thing I canít make out though is Place of Death! You maybe knew that already so didnít have to try to decipher it from the certificate! Is it Egh- - - - lied ?

A quick G search shows that, at that time, Lee, Kent was a village, a parish and a sub-district in Lewisham district, Kent.  Now itís a district in south-east London, within the London Boroughs of Lewisham and Greenwich.  It is within the historic county of Kent.

I think the address is Cornwall Terrace, Lee, Kent.

Re my reply, Reply #9, I apologise for  S H O U T I N G via use of capital letters.
Itís really not like me!  Must be to do with the stress of lockdown. 

Sorry.  Keep up the search!

The BIRTH CERTIFICATE of Alexander John Duncan should give you a lot of information.

DO YOU HAVE THAT?   You say he was born in 1926, but in the Scotlandís People index the only Alexander John Duncan I can find born around then was born in   1927.

Keep working on it!  Weíd all like to move this along!

RD St Nicholas is in Aberdeen, too, so possibly both might be worth looking at more closely.

Using the name William McHardy Duncan Iíve just searched Scotlandís People for a death (using only William Duncan),  anywhere in Scotland, between 1926 and 1960.  It returned 33 pages!  But itís Ďlockdowní so I was happy to take the time to scroll through all the pages!  Two deaths caught my eye.

1  Willian Hardy Duncan, died 1926, RD St Nicholas (not sure what area that is)

2  William Allardy Duncan, died 1928, RD Rubislaw ( which is in Aberdeen)

The name McHardy, when written at speed and possibly without care, could be misread as Allardy - Iíve just tried it!   I would think that in the 1920s registering a death would require a birth certificate to be produced and maybe a Ďbest guessí at the middle name badly written on the birth certificate was Allardy.    Just a thought!

Scotlandís People index has the 1863 marriage, in Canongate, of Janet and Peter CADZIEN.
The index also lists the death in St Giles in 1880 of Peter CADGZIN, aged 42.

Are these the same person?  And are they the Peter you are looking for?
