Age 3

Eclectic Period (Art and Antiques).
1832 · The Scottish Reform Act

Age 5

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.

Age 16

Dickens A Christmas Carol was first published.

Name Meaning

Scottish: probably from an Old Norse personal name Liulfr, composed of an uncertain first element + úlfr ‘wolf’, although Reaney gives this as a pet form of Lyon or Lionel.
