1. Robert1 Doig, born abt 1753 Of Forfar, Angus, Scotland.

Notes for Robert Doig

The marriage record lists Robert as a soldier in the the Atholl Highland Regiment and Ann the lawful daughter to James Halket, one time brewer in Forfar.

 

The Atholl Highland Regiment was the 77th Regiment of Foot, a private army formed in 1777 at Blair Atholl, Perth, under the Duke of Atholl. It was to support the English in the Revolutionary War against Americans for independence. The regiment complained when they were later to be sent to the East Indies, and it was disbanded in 1783.

 

The gap between daughter Ann in 1779 and Helen in 1784 suggests Robert was off fighting with the British in America. By 1784 Robert became a linen weaver in Forfar Burgh.

BURGLER WHO TREATED A FRIEND Both Drunk on a Lorry.

The story of how a burglar treated a friend to stolen whisky, until they both got drunk and fell into the hands of the police, was unfolded at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Wednesday, when two labourers from Park Street Home, named Archibald Richards and Bartholomew Doig, were charged with breaking into the Pretoria Vaults, Melville Drive, Motherwell, between Sunday night and Monday morning, and stealing a quantity of whisky, cigarettes, and coppers.

Both accused pied guilty.

It appears that after committing the theft Richards, the first accused, met a friend of his, a carter, in charge of a horse and lorry, whom he treated to a drink. Both the lorryman and the burglar got blind drunk, and the police found them quite insensible at eight o"clock on Monday morning. They were lodged in the Police Office, and on inquiry being made as to how they came to be drunk so early in the morning, the connection of the first accused with the bsecond accused was also implicated. The burglary at the Pretoria Vaults was ascertained, and the lorryman, who had nothing to do with the burglary, was at Motherwell Police Court this week fined 30s for being drunk while in charge of the horse and lorry.

Hon. Sheriff Stodart sentenced Richards to 60 days" imprisonment. The second accused, who was also charged with breaking into the Pretoria Vaults on a date fortnight earlier, and also with having broken into tool shed within the Brandon Bridge-Building Works, was sentenced to 40 days" imprisonment.

 

"Motherwell Times," 29 Dec 1922:

ANOTHER SUSPECT. Before Bailie M'Guinness on Tuesday, Bartholemew Doig (21), labourer, of no fixed residence, was remitted to the Sheriff on a charge of having, between 16th and 18th September, forcibly entered the billiard hut in the rear of the Y.M.C.A. Institute, Brandon Street, and stolen six billiard balls.

PRISON FOR HEN STEALING. Local Men Sentenced.

At Hamilton Sheriff Court on Saturday two Motherwell men named Bartholmew Doig and Thomas Gallocher, labourers, from Meadow Road, came up on a charge of hen stealing from a henhouse in Coursington Road it being alleged that the two accused stole five hens and cockerel.

The two accused were remitted the Sheriff from the Motherwell Police Court.

They pleaded guilty, and the Sheriff sentenced Doig, who had several previous convictions, to 20 days" imprisonment, and Gallocher to 14 days.

 

"Motherwell Times," 31 Aug 1928:

There was only one case for the Bailie to deal with, that of "rough" charged with assault.

The accused was a young man named Bartholomew Doig, a labourer residing at Park Street House, and the charge against him was that on Friday night, in a house at Russell Place, Park Street, he assaulted another man named Haggarty striking him blow on the face with his fists.

The accused pleaded guilty to the charge, and admitted a previous conviction in 1923, on which occasion he was fined in £1 or ten days.

"Motherwell Times," 7 Dec 1928:

A THIEF SENTENCED. Found With Copper Cable.

Wm. Doig and Bartholomew Doig, two young men residing at Albert Street were charged with having Monday, 29th October been found in possession of a quantity of cable copper without being able to give a satisfactory account thereof.

Boras Silver, metal merchant, Wilson Street stated that the stuff had been offered to him, but he declined to buy. One of the accused came inside the shop while the other waited outside.

Anthony Doig, a school boy, brother the two accused stated that met his brother William in the close Albert Street. His brother asked him to take the stuff to dealer and sell it. It was taken to the dealers, but there was no sale. The police called at the yard, while witness and his brother were still there. His brother William was taken into custody then.

Superintendent Welsh spoke to the accused being known thieves with several previous convictions for theft.

For the defence, William, the younger of the two Doigs, a lad of 18, said his brother Bartholomew had knowledge of where the copper came from. This accused said he found the stuff at Dalziel Colliery bing. His brother was an innocent messenger on his (William"s) behalf, in trying to sell it.
