Dickens A Christmas Carol was first published.
1843 · The Disruption in the Church of Scotland

Age 2

The Disruption of 1843 was a division within the Church of Scotland, which 474 evangelical ministers of the Church broke away from the Church to form the Free Church of Scotland. They didn’t reject the principles of the Church of Scotland but were trying to establish a purer version of the Church without the King or Parliament being its head. It had huge effects not only within the Church of Scotland, but also with Scottish civic life.
1874 · Patronage abolished in the Church of Scotland.

Age 33

The Church Patronage Act 1874 was passed by Parliament and amended and altered the laws relating to the Appointment of Ministers to Parishes in Scotland. Paragraphs spelled out definitions to prevent the Act being subverted by processes used by Patrons and clarified that the Church of Scotland would decide on the qualifications required for Ministers.

Name Meaning

Scottish: habitational name from a place in Aberdeenshire, first recorded in 1291 as Melgedrom, from an obscure first element + Gaelic druim ‘ridge’.
