« on: Tuesday 05 May 20 04:25 BST (UK)  »
Good evening all,

I'm interested in transcribing the record for Matthew Jamieson and Agnes Mitchell who were wed on Sep 19.

The columns in this record are / and what I've got transcribed are:

Man                    Abode      Woman              Abode            Proclaimed      Married
Matt: Jamieson     ???        Agnes Mitchell   Anachlin (?)    Aug 29            Sep 19

Please and thanks!

Hard to say  ???

But the map posted by Mckha489 is brilliant!

I'm going to mark the topic as closed - based upon what I see on the map, the priest has documented 2 farms near Archmonnach :(

Could Crofthead be the name of the house/property?


That would make it Crofthead (house or farm) in the village of Meadowhead in Archmonnach?

Thanks Gaffy, Mckha489. Does anyone know why there would be two place-names then?

Crofthead, Meadowhead of Auchmannoch

good day all,

I've deciphered most of the record for Janet Jamieson but need help with the place names in parenthesis.

The transcription reads:

Dec 27 was born and baptized 8 January 1790 Janet Jamieson lawfully procrat between Mathew Jamieson and Agnes Mitchell spouses at (Crofthead Meadowhead of ___jack)

Please and thanks for the help :)

You'all Rock - I don't know why it's so hard to decipher this hand. It's like it's French / Latin but it's from Yorkshire!

Good day!

So in searching for Martha Saltonstall's birth record I came across this entry for here on Ancestry:

Name: Martha Saltonstall
Event Type: Baptism
Baptism Date: 12/04/1599
Baptism Place: Heptonstall, St Thomas Yorkshire England
Parish as it Appears: Heptonstall, St Thomas
Father: Jonas Saltonstall

The image provided is attached but I can't make heads or tails of the handwriting at all - I can; however, see that the dates are 1600 not 1599. I'm not sure if Martha is on the page at all?

Could someone determine if Martha is on this page, indicate where, and translate please?

Good day all,

This record is supposedly of the marriage between one Michaell Utley and Margaret Greenwood. The marriage supposedly took place on 23/10/1599. That said, I can't make heads nor tales of this handwriting? Looking for a complete translation, if possible, of the correct record?

Please and thanks :)
