1832 · The Scottish Reform Act

Age 9

The Scottish Reform Act was introduced by Parliament that introduced changes to the election laws in Scotland. The Act didn’t change the method of how the counties elected members but adopted a different solution for each pair of counties. Ultimately, it brought about boundary changes so that some burghs would have more say for the country than others.
1838 · Jenners Department Store Opens its doors

Age 15

Jenners was founded by Charles Jenner as a department store for the community. The original building was destroyed by a fire in 1892 but, with a new design in mind, the store was reopened in 1895 with new features. It was named Harrods of the North after it was given Royal Warrant in 1911 and was visited by Queen Elizabeth II on its 150th anniversary. It was sold to the House of Fraser in 2005, which in 2008, made much needed improvements to the store.

Name Meaning

1 English (now mainly in Scotland; also West Midlands and Welsh border): habitational name from places in Shropshire and West Yorkshire, so named from Old English hær ‘rock’, ‘heap of stones’ or hara ‘hare’ + lēah ‘wood’, ‘clearing’. In some cases the name may be topographic.2 Irish: when not of English origin, this is an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hEarghaile ‘descendant of Earghal’, a variant of the personal name Fearghal without the initial F- ( see Farrell ).
