I think in the case of Isobel WOOD's birth, the "ultimo"
has to be interpreted as meaning that she was born 19 Jul
and baptised 1 Aug 1846 (July being the "last" month before
the recorded baptisim in August).
Entry on page 52:
WOOD Isobel: Andrew Wood w.f. 4 Downies and wife Agnes Twigg a dau.
b.l9 ult. bap. 1 Aug. 1846
Ult. is an abbreviation of the latin "ultimo" meaning "last" (day,
month, year). So in Isobel's entry I'm guessing that "born 19 ult.
bap. 1 Aug." means she was born the 19 August. Does anyone else have a
comment as I'm not at all sure about this?
