Go to a photo shop and buy two or three 35mm negative film archival sleeves.  Make sure they are archival and not just plastic they will protect them forever.


Renfrewshire / Re: Campbell family 1857

There is the 1851 Census; the 1861 Census and almost nothing in between.  There is the 1855 Valuation Rolls (property), but it doesn't list everyone who lives at a particular the dwelling just the tenant who pays the rent. 

For West Campbell there are 4 Campbell's who are tenants a Mrs. Campbell, two John's a James and a William.  There is no Campbell on Renfrew Road but there is a Samuel on West Street.

And be careful, there are 213 Campbell's listed in Paisley's Valuation Rolls.

You can look these up for yourself{%22category%22:%22valuation%22}

You will need to register first if haven't been on Scotland's People which is free as are the indexes.

When you click on the link select Valuations.  Enter his name and select Dunbarton County and hit enter.

Walter purchased and sold a lot of properties in the county from 1855-1920.

Valuation Rolls
46 West Bridgend was a tenement owned by Walter Scott.
The only commercial unit was a stable rented by James Higgins, a butcher.

If you are looking for Bridgeton that is the name of the station.

"The British embassy to the United Arab Republic was at Cairo. From 1964, when Syria separated from Egypt to become the Syrian Arab Republic, the Damascus office became an embassy. Diplomatic and consular relations between Britain and Syria were broken off in June 1967 following the Arab-Israeli war, and were not resumed until May 1973. Diplomatic and consular relations were again severed in October 1986, and were not resumed until 1990."

This suggests there would be no official British record.

You might have to send Resthaven an email and request their plot numbers if you find someone to take photos.  It has never been transcribed.
