So in my jackpot from yesterday, here is what I got:
Translation (and it is a translation, as this was difficult to read) from the bottom record:
26 March, 1838, St. Cuthbert's Parish Records:
William Mason, labourer, residing in [8..12] West Maitland Street and Agnes Alexander also residing in same place both in this parish, daughter of the late Robert Alexander victual dealer* in Corstorphine have been three** several times duly and regularly proclaimed in order. Marriage in the parish
’s and no objections offered. Married this day by the Reverend Doctor David Dickson. church of Saint Cuthbert
* I love the OPR scanners, as when I googled “Niduar Dealer” (which is what it looked like) I got a hit for a PDF of a similar Irish document where the words were clearly, “Victual Dealer” in the actual document. So it wasn’t just me who saw that. And then looked up "victual dealer” and it’s a grocer. Gggggrandpa Mason was grocer. One of eight in the town, according to the Statistical Accounts of Scotland, Edinburgh. (http://stat-acc-scot.edina.ac.uk/link/1834-45/Edinburgh/Corstorphine/ , p. 222)
** This “Three” is not a typo. It’s found all over the place on this page and others I googled and is very clear. What does it mean??? “have been three several times” does NOT make sense…
Here is the church. It was rebuilt in 1888, but they (i.e. Wikipedia) says that it was rebuilt with the same proportions just larger.
I also found this, which is, “Memorial to Reverend David Dickson”.
