1847 · The United Presbyterian Church of Scotland is established.

Age 2

The United Presbyterian Church of Scotland was formed in 1847. For most of its existence the United Presbyterian Church was the third largest Presbyterian Church in Scotland and flourished in Scotland for 53 years. After being reunited with the Church of Scotland in 1929, it continues to bring relief to the local communities.
1854 · Great North of Scotland Railway

Age 9

Being one of the two smallest railways in 1923, the Great North of Scotland Railway carried its first passengers from Kittybrewster to Huntly in 1854. In the 1880s the railways were refurbished to give express services to the suburban parts in Aberdeen. There were junctions with the Highland Railway established to help connect Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Moray counties. The railway started to deliver goods from the North Sean and from the whisky distilleries in Speyside. With the implementation of bus services and the purchase of the British Railway the Great North of Scotland Railway was discontinued.
1878 · Collapse of the City of Glasgow Bank.

Age 33

Because of a discovery of a £7,000 deficit, City of Glasgow Bank halted operations from November to December 1877. After 10 months after reopening, the bank’s directors announced the bank, itself, had filed bankruptcy. The closure showed a net liability of over £6 million. The bank was so successful with telling people that it wasn’t in error, that the Bank's shares were selling for more than double of what they were actually worth. The bank’s directors were arrested and tried at the High Court. All were found guilty and sentenced to terms of imprisonment. Many Glasgow businesses failed as a result of the bankruptcy and shareholders were called to replenish the bank's losses. One shareholder argued that he had become a shareholder unknowing the fraudulent actions of the bank. Wide effects of the collapse have been seen in limited growth in liability and extensive problems with temporary banking liquidity.

Name Meaning

To this was later added the Old English element ēg ‘island’, since the place was virtually cut off by the surrounding fenland.The surname was taken to Scotland at an early date and is the name of an important and powerful Scottish family.2 Irish: adopted as an equivalent of various Gaelic names ( see Lindsey ).
