In the Hamilton Advertiser of 6th February 1864 appears the following notice: I, Robert WILSON, Haughhead Colliery, Lanarkshire, will not be responsible for any debts contracted by my wife, Janet Nimmo WILSON on or after this date. Haughhead, Feb 6th 1864 I would like to know why but cannot find anything. Background: Janet was born about 1840 in Cadder, Lanarkshire and died in 1874 in Lanark. Robert was born about 1841 in Bothwell, Lanarkshire and died in 1905. The couple wed on 3rd August 1860. Note: their daughter Euphemia was born on 24th February 1864, 3 weeks after this notice appears. Thanks.
