With genealogy seems to come a renewed love of all things history related. To that end, the Stirling Council has started a blog with posts from the 19th century diaries of one Dr. Thomas Lucas. Dr Lucas was a surgeon in Stirling. His diaries are from 1808-1821 and give a wonderful insight into the life of a prominent surgeon in Georgian Stirling. Dr Lucas was also a member of the Merchant Guild and a property owner.
The Council posts an entry on the anniversary date of the original diary entry, so that for each entry in 1813, a blog post will occur on the same date and month but 200 years later (2013).
Diary entries for earlier years are available under a separate tab.
The diaries can be accessed at:
