Nicoll, John, Writer to His Majesty's Signet, c. 1585-1668
John Nicoll (surname also spelled Nicholl, Nichol or Nicol), solicitor, diarist and Writer to His Majesty's Signet, was born in Glasgow before 1590 and worked most of his life in Edinburgh. On 21 Oct 1606 he married Bessie, dau. of James Thomson, Edinburgh merchant; when she died in Aug 1627, the following 12 Dec he married Magdalene, dau. of Andrew Hutchinson, another Edinburgh merchant. Records indicate that he had at least one son, John Nicoll, Jr., 1609-1685. I have tentatively identified this line as part of my patronymic ancestry, and would like to find a living descendant of the male Nicoll line to arrange a y-DNA test for verification.

red mail Lady Margaret HAMILTON
My great grandmother, Margaret, eloped from Scotland and married in 1869 under the name of MAGUIRE. The family believe this was her mother's maiden name. Margaret was "thrown out" of the clan due to her actions. There were, however, papers for her to claim her entitlements which she never did. Does anybody have information, since geneology record searches are not showing entries for her. She moved to Australia with her husband and children. Appreciate any help that is available, Megan.

red mail Thomas Hamilton & Helen Caldwell Marriage 12 Mar 1831 Gorbals.
These were my 3 great grandparents. The only children they had that are confirmed are my own ancestor Isabella Hamilton (December 1833) who's christened as Isabella Murdoc Hamilton after her maternal grandmother and her brother John (1832) whos confirmed through DNA matching. Isabella marries twice- once to a wealthy man of whom shes the servant and again as a widow to a Robert Joseph Mullins. Isabellas living off her inheritance at this time and her parents are listed as Thos Hamilton a baker who is dead and Helen Hamilton maiden name Caldwell. The problem is which Thomas Hamilton is he? There are four the right age roughly of which three have fathers called John like his first son but families didnt always stick to naming patterns so he could just as easily be Hugh and Marys son. If anyone has any advice that would be great thank you :).

red mail Glasgow Burial
I am looking to see if anyone in Glasgow can find the grave of my 3rd great-grandfather, Thomas Wallace. He died at the Royal Infirmary in November 1872. I am not sure where he is buried. Could be up by the Infirmary or down in the Eastern Necropolis where the family lived off of Duke Street at the time. If anyone has a clue I will be coming to Glasgow and would love to find his grave.

red mail Finding Thomas Wallace, Royal Infirmary
I am looking for details about my 4th great grandfather, Thomas Wallace. Born in Ireland, Donegal I believe, he was in a terrible accident in 1872. He had broken bones, fractured ribs just terrible death. I have found in the Glasgow Herald of 29 November 1872, an article recording thick fog covering the city. My Thomas's accident was during this time. A carter, delivering goods, was careless at his duties and appeared in court while my grandfather dies along with a young girl injured with the same injuries. Was my grandfather a carter too at the time or another victim of this said Carter? I need to check the Royal Infirmary records and death records on him or the girl which may tie him into this accident? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
