OPR Baptisms and Marriages (xls file to download)

Stephanie Logan’s list, created from LDS microfilms, gives Loban/Lobban baptisms and marriages recorded across all Scotland in the extant protestant parish records. Special features are that she noted the farm and the baptism witnesses. Some additional names, especially where a Lobban was a witness.

Gordon Lobban’s Data (xlsx files to download)

Index comprises a list of all Lobbans (not Lobans) found in the OPR, including dates of birth/baptism, marriage and death (dates parsed into separate columns). Each life event is numbered for cross reference (in the set of pages in hatches_matches_dispatches) and the numbers are included in the index, along with the censuses in which the individual appears.

Censuses include lists of all Lobbans in Scotland Censuses 1841-1901 and England 1861-1901. He has started to add other names if related (e.g., married daughters) and this work is ongoing.

Besides his 1881 census data, Syd Lobban also picked through all the other censuses from 1841 to 1911, trying to identify each person to someone in his trees.  This file in xlsx format is his working spreadsheet with some 3000 records; he supplied it with this caveat: “prepared for my own use, so do not expect too much.”
