1843

Age 2

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.
1854 · Great North of Scotland Railway

Age 13

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.

Name Meaning

Scottish: from a Scottish personal name, Archibald, of Anglo-Norman French and (ultimately) Continental Germanic origin ( see Archambault ). In the Highlands of Scotland it was taken as an Anglicized equivalent of the Gaelic personal name Gille Easbaig ‘servant of the bishop’ ( see Gillespie ), probably because of the approximate phonetic similarity between Arch(i)bald and easbaig. Both Archibald and Gillespie are personal names much favored among Clan Campbell.
