Lyall Ancestry, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Lyall family history as sourced from a memorial stone at Glasgow's Necropolis. This was erected by Margaret McCallum and records the deaths of:

  • Husband, William Lyall, Merchant, on July 7th 1871 age 70 years.
  • Robert Kidd- 4 months
  • William Duncan-age 2 years
  • David Austine-age 4 yrs.
  • William Duncan-age 6 yrs.
  • Catherine Kidd-age 17 yrs.
  • Jane Austine-age 8 yrs.
Comment: This infant mortality for this family was high, even by the standards of Victorian Glasgow.
