Caithness / Where is Clysterfield?
« on: Friday 29 September 06 17:55 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone know exactly where this farm or croft was? It is listed in the 1841, 1861 and 1881 censuses in the same enumeration district as Hawkhillock, Mount Pleasant and Springbank, but it is the only address listed in 1881 in that enumeration district which I cannot find on the modern Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 map.

It is also missing from the online 1877 OS map.

I reckon it has to be somewhere on the east (right) bank of the river, fairly close to the bridge.

Any ideas, anyone?

Aberdeenshire / BURGESS and SANG Families

Interested in any information about Burgess families (Burgess as in surname, not as in 'burgess of the city/town) anywhere in Aberdeenshire. Also the surname Sang.


Stirlingshire / Hogg/Finlayson/Paterson/Miller/Yorkston
« on: Saturday 29 October 05 17:49 BST (UK)  »
Researching Peter Hogg, born 1793/4 in Larbert, illegitimate son of Robert Hogg and Janet Finlayson, married (1) Janet Yorkston in 1819 and (2) Margaret Russell in 1826.

His eldest son James Hogg, born 1820, married in 1841 Margaret Paterson, born 1821, daughter of Hugh Paterson and Ann Miller. I have details of their descendants.

I think that Hugh Paterson was born in Cramond, Midlothian in 1766, son of James Paterson and Margaret Baillie, that Ann Miller, whom he married in 1814, was his second wife, and that his first wife was Jean Thomson, whom he married in 1791.

Any further information would be much appreciated.

With the addition of the 1861 this week, the above censuses are all available on

They are fully indexed and clicking on the name leads to a digital image of the original page.
