THIS STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND LOOKING FOR
Posted by: nicholas heron (ID *****5716) Date: August 07, 2011 at 09:41:55

My DOUGLAS grgrgrandparents were one of the four DOUGLAS families of Loch Lomond listed in the 1851
Provincial census. I find myself challenged in a variety
of ways in my search for the family and their descendents.

Learning how to access the 1881 Canadian census Without losing my mind and results. Yes I read their help section. However, it is isn’t helping.

Who is/was the Robert Douglas, Esq Simonds”
Wedding announcement Novembe 1854, also in
The newspaper Vital Statistics?

Who is/was Robert        DOUGLAS Esq, Loch Lomand?
?. . .Robert DOUGLAS, E       sq, Loch Lomand.” Wedding
announcement, New Brunswick Courier, Sept 1857.

In Scotland using the “of” with property said that
you owned it. Esquire, in Scotland I think indicated
that you were a “gentleman” and I could be wrong.
In the US it means that you are a lawyer.

Does anyone what information is included when a
Land Grant Document is ordered.

Does anyone know what the qualifications for becoming
A Justice of Peace were in the mid to late 1800’s?.

Thanks N.
