In Scotland's People, i put in a search for a death for any Berrisfield in Scotland from 1855 to 1930. this should include John Berrisfield born around 1830. There were none, and the only Berrisfields I found were Helen Jane Gemmell , 37 , a child called James at the same address and a girl called Eliza, again same address...too much of a co-incidence. In IGI i put a search for a Samuel Berrisfield , born in Dromore , found him with 1859 DOB. My gggrandfather was Samuel Beresford( found his death cert) and amazingly dob also 1859. I wonder if the combination ofirish accent and depending on the registrar/census recorder mean there was a mis-recording???I don't think there's any way i can find out for sure, is there?
