From Maureen, on this post www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,645844.msg4934533.html#msg4934533

To all who tried to help.
All the information on marriage regular and irregular is contained on a podcast from Glasgow University at
http://workingclassmarriage.gla.ac.uk/the-team/
It contains an amazing amount of information on the legality of marriages mainly in Scotland from the 17th century up until 1939 but also contrasts the differences in England and other parts of Europe.
The podcast is the basis of an article on irregular marriages soon to be published in 'The Journal of Social History'

One of my ancestor's, has his christian and surname changed on his 1857 Scottish birth certificate, on the 23 July he has the same name as his named father, lo and behold on the 15th of September all change he is a different person. Not fair!

Hello Monica,
I am looking for information about a Scottish family immigrating to Australia on the ship Waverley in 1848. Charles Leiper (Leaper) his wife Elizabeth and daughters Mary and Janet. They were from Kilbarton Renfrewshire.
Many thanks
Mariea

Thank you Skoosh,
Can you tell me anything about Charles Leiper (he may have died on the voyage) and his wife Elizabeth born Irvine a laundress from  Nelston Scotland and their two daughters Mary and Janet sailing on the Waverley to Australia in 1848?

Mairiea, it would be better if you began a new topic with a new title. There is a sub-board for Renfrewshire on the Scotland board.
When you've done that, you can either delete your post on here or edit it or add an extra post to say you've started a new thread for your enquiry. You have 24 hours after posting to change or delete a post.
This thread is just to draw attention to a resource about civil registration in Scotland. It's not for answering enquiries.
Hope this helps.  :)

Hi there,

A new thread is definitely the way to go ... and there's a new thread on the Australia Board with info about a Janet LEIPER's marriage to a Samuel BEAMAN.   

In the meanwhile,  here is a live link to the digitised passenger link for that voyage of the ship Waverley, arriving Sydney, New South Wales in December 1848.    http://indexes.records.nsw.gov.au/ebook/list.aspx?Page=NRS5316/4_4786/Waverley_%2020%20Dec%201848/4_478600155.jpg&No=1

Scroll through to page 4.
It clearly shows under the heading "Widows on Embarkation" under the surname LEIPER:
Elizabeth aged 34  (JM notes that her native place is hard to decipher, but does not seem to be same locality as Mary or Janet, although all three seem to be from Renfrewshire, Presbyterians and can Read and Write).
Mary aged 17
Janet aged 15

I have already posted some information about a Janet LEIPER on Mariea's thread on the Australia Board.  That Janet's death registration is indexed at NSW BDM as Janet BEAMAN, with parents as Richard and Elizabeth.  (#3850/1902)  ... it is of course possible that the informant mis-understood the given name for that Janet's father  (Charles v Richard) ...  :)
