Hello,

The following note is in the margin of the 1881 death certificate:



Archibald died on 25 August at Fairlie Railway Station West Kilbride and the cause of death column is blank. The death was registered on 29th August 1881. I would say there was a Coroners report.

Opinions please. :)

Result of preconition ?
See Rec. of Cor Eufr ? Vol 1 p45
20th ... ? 1881

Thanks gibbo. :)

That's one I didn't have in my tree until very recently. I should have though since he was named after his father. His father is on my direct line and then an elder brother Alexander.

Also good to know that Elizabeth out lived him. Will make it easier to find her death since her maiden name is not clear.

I think you are right in that there may have been an inquest into the cause of death. The first line - result of Precognition.
Knowledge of something in advance of its occurrence, especially by extrasensory perception; clairvoyance.
Scots Law.
a.
the examination of witnesses and other parties before a trial in order to supply a legal ground for prosecution.

b.
the evidence established in such an examination.

result of precognition
see reg of Cor entry vol 1 page 45
(see Register of coroner entry --)
20th Sep 1881

I believe the tails of the g and f are affecting the word Sep
