Rod-thanks. I see some available on Amazon for 10 bucks or less. Maybe I'll pick up a copy. It's great what one learns on this forum just cruising by an interesting thread on any topic.

Scotland
Any members suggest what a "Mail-Car" was circa 1830 -1850
Hendy quotes mail cars as so does this, when foot runners, carrying the post
were taken over by the "Mail cars"

Would this be "Horse and trap" ?


Quote:
John Mackenzie, son of Donald Charles, was the last running post to Gairloch. He was called Iain Mor am Post, and was a remarkably strong and courageous Highlander. When the mail-car began to run he emigrated to Australia.

Interesting to see the book on Scots Local Cancellations open at the pages which lists Bridge of Marnoch Post Office which opened March 1856 (now closed). Until a few years ago I lived across the road and a few hundred yards down the road on the left.


Image of the listed postmark.
1857 S.G.40 1d Rose-red Die 2 Perf 14 W/mark Large Crown
Bridge of Marnoch Scots local postmark Type XIX. Black sans serif capitals in rectangular frame.

Scotland Postmarks
"TOO LATE"
When first used it appears unknown in Scotland
at least in 1796 a double line oval too late exists.

There is a Boxed dated too late in 1829

Now to Bobby de la rue's gift cover

This curious undated "TOO LATE" dates before 1829 and was used after it until the 1850's

Bib: Alcock and Holland Page 359

Well, not really. In the 1800s, my ancestors were mainly agricultural workers, house painters and railway workers. It's the luck of the draw. Two things tend to choke off searches. First, official records seem to be regarded as confidential for the last century. Secondly, beyond the past 100 or so years; record keeping for the ordinary person (such as myself) was far from perfect. If you can get past the first five or six generations you have done well. But you need to find a peer in your background to hit the jackpot as their records tend to be well kept.
