1820 Settler Places in Britain and Éire

In many cases, particularly in cities like London and Bristol, many buildings with settler ties no longer exist. In such cases I have tried to include historical pictures where possible, and where I have not been able to take pictures myself I have added pictures from, which can be used under a Creative Commons Licence. Where the photographer’s name appears as a clickable link followed by a CC BY-SA 2.0 reference, the original photo can be viewed together with other photographs of the surrounding area.

The pictures are currently arranged by county for England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, with separate sections for the cities of Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Nottingham. London has been further sub-divided into Boroughs so as not to have too many pictures in one file. The pictures appear as small icons with a brief title. Clicking on them will reveal a larger picture with text explaining the link to one or more settlers and a credit to the photographer. Clicking on the + sign will further enlarge the picture to full screen (ESCape to exit full screen), and the photographs can all be downloaded from the site.

Meigle, Parish Church

Meigle Parish Church. The church was re-built in 1870 after fire destroyed the pre-Reformation stone church of 1431. Charles and his twin brother William, children of David DALGAIRNS and Beatrix LAING, were baptised in the church in 1779. Charles married Charlotte DALGAIRNs from Newtyle, Angus, possibly his cousin, and their daughters, Agnes, Betty and Magdaline, were baptised in Meigle between 1805 and 1809.
