Where might this be?
« on: Sunday 26 April 20 00:20 BST (UK) »
This place of birth is taken from the 1861 census in Amble, Northumberland for Janet Richardson (nee Scott).  Ancestry have transcribed it as Briglands, FindMyPast have made no attempt at all and Iím struggling to find any location which might fit.

Does anyone have any idea, please?

It does rather look like Briglands.

There's a listed 18C house called Briglands which is in Fossoway, Perth and Kinross.  May have been an estate there and that was where Janet was born.

Do you know whereabouts in Scotland Janetís husband or older children were born? (in case the couple both came from the same area)

Where did Janet and James marry? (in case they married in the brideís parish)

Any answers may give you a place to start to search, though I am sure you have probably considered all of the above suggestions.

I think the place name is written as Briglands, but may be the enumeratorís interpretation.

Depending on how it was pronounced, there is this variation (and fairly close to Northumberland):

I would agree that it says Scotland Briglands. I would start looking for her in Kinross.

Check out Scotlandspeople. They have a couple of Janet Scotts born in Fife around the right timeframe. One of them about 12 miles from Briglands.

There are no records of baptisms of any Scotts at all at any time in the parish of Fossoway, and since the greatest dimension of the parish of Fossoway is 11 miles, anywhere 12 miles from Briglands could not be in Fossoway.

There's also a Bridgelands or Briglands in Selkirkshire and a Brigland in the parish of Mauchline, Ayrshire.

James Richardson and Janet Scott had
Janet, baptised 23 February 1823, Ednam (Roxburghshire)
Robert, baptised 26 August 1829, Edinburgh St Cuthberts
John Sinclair, baptised 6 July 1831, Edinburgh St Cuthberts
Helen, born 15 January 1834, Edinburgh
Isabella, born 6 June 1836, Edinburgh
Mary Ann, born 8 May 1838, Edinburgh
