Mull Genealogy

1855 being the first year of Civil Registration in Scotland, the Registrar devised an over-elaborate form of record, which had to be abandoned the following year. With such a feast of facts in 1855, it is often of great value to have a sibling born, married or dead in 1855, as that will give you many insights about your own ancestor, and more information than you'd get in the ancestor's own death. These 1855 b,m & d records are often called 'extended records', and are a real godsend.


Meg Douglass

Lost Townships, Silent Voices: a field study of Mull comprises the notes made by Meg Douglass, a former Head Teacher at Ulva Primary School, and her late husband Roy. The meticulously catalogued labour of love took forty years to complete. During that time the couple walked many miles around the island, recording sites of ruins, taking photographs, noting measurements and analysing the use made of the buildings that remained.

The result is a comprehensive account of 160 deserted townships, together with map references, descriptions of locations and identification of various extant ruins.

Graham Ritchie, former Head of Archaeology at the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland and author of many books, has described the research as "a remarkable endeavour" and maintains that its publication lays "a further building block in the understanding of the history of Mull".

At the launch Eleanor Harris, Local Studies Librarian for Argyll and Bute Council, said, "I am delighted that we have been able to publish this book. It is the culmination of a lifetime’s study, brought to life with photographs and maps, and now accessible to the public." It is already proving popular with historians and local people alike, and copies have been requested from as far afield as Canada and Australia.
