Rev. Dr. Henry Duncan

These are documents that had been amongst my Grandfather's papers. My Grandfather was James McIntosh, Minister of Buccleuch Street United Free (Presbyterian) Church in Dumfries, Scotland.

They were forms sent out by Rev. Dr. Henry Duncan to collect data on cases of adultery and fornication in the parishes during a 1-year period (April 1, 1841 to April 1, 1842).

Dr. Duncan, aside from being the founder of the first savings bank and responsible for collecting and restoring the Ruthwell Rood (or cross), was Convener of the "Committee of Synod on the Desertion of Illegitimate Children". He was also, apparently discoverer of dinosaur footprints....
