164 A cotton spinner. In 1851 he lived at Arthurlie . He died a widower in 1864. Sharp, William (I905)
 
165 A dairy maid at Craig of Neilston when married.Died soon after last child Dugal was born.
Catherine McKechnie, Servant,Un Marr. 25, Argyllshire

The family address at that time was Stevenson's Land, Cross Stobs. Following Catherine's death, John's sister Catherine looked after the family, but by 1891 it was another sister Elizabeth Aunt Leezie who was living with them at Hairlaw Farm. Research shows that Catherine married a farmer Alexander McMillan. She died in 1914. It is unlikely that she had any children, as it was nephew Nicol who registered the death. Aunt Leezie had married a joiner John Leitch, they had two children. It seems unlikely that they survived childhood as once again it was nephew Nicol who registered her death in 1924. Dugald named his second daughter after Aunt Leezie, and Donald and Elma still have a favourite Aunt Liz, mother of Margaret and Johan, of course. 
McKecknie, Catherine (I907)

170 A soldier . Origin unknown. . Son William was born in Neilston. Sharp, Peter (I916)
 
171 About Greta: Her mother died when she was bout 15 years old, so she then took on the domestic duties in the farm. After she married John Holmes (about 1953, I was her train bearer (flower girl)) she moved to his farm which was West Arthurlie, Barrhead. She has 2 daughters, Margaret and Sheila ( I am Sheila's godmother and she was flower girl at my wedding.... I should have shown you the photos) Eventually the farm was demolished for a housing development, and they moved to the bungalow where Greta has stayed since then. John Holmes died a number of years ago. Source Johan.


I took my mother to visit Greta in hospital yesterday. Remarkably she has recovered from her latest heart attack, but she has deteriorated in her brain function. She covered that up well in the short time we were there, but I don't think she will be able to live independently now. Johan Nov. 2005.

Unfortunately I had some very sad news yesterday. Greta died on Monday evening. As you know she had been ill for some time. In fact it is almost exactly 3 years since she suffered a heart attack whilst having lunch with my mother and another friend in Largs.
I had seen her a few weeks ago, and I think she enjoyed my visit, so now I have a pleasant memory of her. She was part of my whole life. She spoiled me a lot when I was very young, and was always so kind to everyone she knew.
I have lots of early memories, like going on the Glasgow Subway with her and my mother, having tea at the farm, she made great scrambled eggs, and having her on holiday with us at Millport.
I feel so sorry for her daughters, Margaret and Sheila, they will miss their mother so much.
Her funeral is at Neilston Parish Church tomorrow morning, thereafter to the cemetery for burial.
I will be in touch again soon

Alarming Fire in Neilston

Early on Friday morning last, fire was discovered to have broken out in the tenement at 6 Factory Street Neilston. It is a block of 4 single apartment houses and was fully occupied. Information was conveyed to the Police office, and the fire brigade was summoned. Meantime Constable McTavish had the tenants warned out and most of them found refuge in the houses of neighbours with little more in their possession than the clothing they wore. Much alarm was naturally created in the district and this was intensified when it became known that 2 men were still in one of the houses round which the fire was raging. The constable unable to obtain entrance otherwise broke one of the windows, and entered the apartment, which was full of smoke and he found both men much overcome and one of them severely burned. With assistance he had them conveyed to the Police Office where they were seen by Dr Pride. The Paisley ambulance van was phoned for, and in it both men were conveyed to the Royal Alexandria Infirmary. There names are James McGourlick, the tenant and Wm McElhutton, a visitor. The latter died later in the day.
The Brigade confined the fire to the tenement which was almost destroyed, the damage being estimated at about £400. The origin of the outbreak is not known.

191 Barrhouse is owned by Elderslie Estates, landlords of about a third of Renfrewshire for several centuries. We have made a preliminary foray into their archives and found records dated 1797 of an Allan Carswell renting Craig of Neilston and Barrhouse in the Neilstonside Estate, for £115 pa from 1786 to 1805. Prior to that in 1769 it is noted that John Carswell of Neilstonside rented Barrhouse for £9:8:4 (From letter by Bruce Henry dig director at Barrhouse.)

199 Birth 1888 CARSWELL Thomas Prestbury Cheshire East PRE/17/86 1888

Bachelor, Always playing jokes & acting the giddy ox!!

You mention the name 'Carswell of Prestbury' in 'Trying To Find' - this is a long-shot, I know, but are you aware of any Carswell in your tree, of Prestbury, that fathered a child to a housemaid in 1916? I believe he then went to serve with the army in India and possibly became a Lieutenant!? His forename is unknown to me!
Hi John, thanks for your reply. The lady in mention is/was my Grandmother - she died in 1985. As a girl she worked as a house-maid of some sorts. I believe she was employed to work in a mansion for a well known 'Carswell' family of Prestbury. It is said that the pregnancy brought shame to all concerned and "kept-behind-closed-doors" back in those days! My info regarding the army/war may be inaccourate - I will try to investigate further with the details you have sent me!! Regards Chaz.


1st World War veteran.

Tom had a daughter out of wedlock in 1915/1916. Information from her son Charles ? states that his grandmother was a house servant to a welll known Carswell family at Prestbury& the father went off to India in the army & became a Lieutenant ?
Betty Tandour learnt after Toms death from her parents the fact that he had a daughter & that he wished to marry the mother but family presure prevented it. She was from a "respected farming family & would have been a good wife"

"Charles"the son of Thomas's daughter may be Charles Dunk ( from his email address Chaz4Dunk@aol.com or jazzybeat62@aol.com) From Cheshire BDM a George Charles William Dunk married a Honor Mary Bishop or a Honor Mary Wilson at Chester Civil Marriage Ref Roc/99/116.


Hello John - sorry for the delay! We are now even more mystified.......with your last email, the plot thickens! My mother has now given me the "ok" to put you in the picture with the following 'brief' information/explanation, as given to her by her mother - my grandma.......again, sorry for the delay on this!! I'll try to keep this simple, as we know it.......here goes:- The 'baby' in question (Margaret) was born to my grandma (Lily) in 1916. Lily was born in Wilmslow, Cheshire in 1898 > the youngest of a family of 14 children. At some early stage Lily left Wilmslow to live with her elder sister (Ann) at Brooke's Cottage, Pearl Street, Prestbury, Cheshire. Whilst living in Prestbury, Lily worked as a maid of some sorts for a local family > the Carswells; Lily fell pregnant to 'the younger son of the house' > Margaret ('the baby') was then born 1st July 1916. For some reason, Margaret was soon adopted by Ann > Lily's sister; Lily then left Prestbury.......and, apparently, the father of Margaret went to serve with the army in India, where he became a lieutenant. After leaving, Lily settled in a village some 10 miles + away from Prestbury.......there she married and went on to have a further 6 children > my mother (Betsy) being the eldest of this bunch - born in 1922. Betsy (my mother) has always believed/thought that this 'pregnancy/birth' had brought shame to all concerned in Prestbury > possibly because it was considered 'not-right', back in those days, to have a baby out-of-wedlock; whatever the reason/s, this was kept very 'hush hush'.......so much so that Margaret ('the baby') was heard to refer to herself as:- "I'm one of the unmentionables" when asked who she was!!! It was only by chance that my mother (Betsy) learned, at a young age, that Margaret was actually her half sister > not her cousin, as she (Betsy) was led to be believed > Betsy overheard Margaret call grandma (Lily) "mother" whilst on an occasional visit > when questioned about this, grandma briefly explained to my mother (Betsy) the above and that was that.............................. ........................Now here's where the plot thickens, with a possible twist to this tale > in your last email to me, you mention the name 'Ann Bradley' (being the mother of Thomas Carswell) and 'Bollin Grove,'.......'Bradley' was the surname of my grandma (Lily Bradley) and also her sister - Ann Bradley, with whom she (Lily) went to live at Brooke's Cottage, Pearl Street, Prestbury. The following quote is a paragraph taken from childhood memories, personally written by Margaret Bradley, titled Child Of The Village:- ----------------------------------------------------------------- Towards the end of the 19th Century two well-respected Wilmslow ladies were comparing the local families, thus:- "And there's the Bradleys!..." "Oh, you mean the quantity?!" "No," says her friend, Not the Quantity, I meant the Quality!" Aunty (Ann) was very proud of her family reputation. Her youngest sister, Lily (my natural mother) was the last of the Bradley family to come to live with Aunty. When she finished school here she was found a "place" with a local and much respected family. However, before her 18th birthday, a baby girl arrived (me); quite patently due to the attentions of the younger son of the house. Aunty valiantly supported her sister; adopted me and brought me up to be extremely cautious of all men. So I never "went out" with village boys. Soon after my arrival in Brooke's Cottage, Pearl Street, a mysterious letter arrived (from my natural father), addressed to 'The Pearl Of Pearl Street, Prestbury'. After much deliberation Aunty despatched it back into the post, headed:- "Not known at this address." -------------------------------------------------------- I (Charles) was born in 1962, from this time on I cannot remember ever seeing or hearing of Margaret visiting her mother (my grandma Lily) on a 'personal' visit. However, I am aware that she did keep contact through the post > letters, birthday cards, Christmas cards, Easter cards ect. > she also kept contact with my mother (Betsy) this way. My mother still has several of these letters/cards > Margarets address on each of these is 56 Bollin Grove, Prestbury, Cheshire, SK10 4JJ. My mother says, as far as she is aware, this has always been Margarets home address from being a very young age. I only met Aunty Margaret on 4 occasions:- my brothers wedding 1981, grandma Lily's funeral 1985, my cousin's wedding 1987 and my uncles funeral in 1990. Sadly, Margaret died in 2002. I would describe Aunty Margaret as a nice, polite, quietly spoken, royalty like person, with a dry sense of humour. Mother says it was not possible for her Aunty Ann Hough (nee Bradley) to have baby's (however, it is known that she had been married 3 times!!) > 'IF' this is correct, then this Ann cannot be the same Ann (Hannah) mentioned in your last email to me, as you say she had a son called Thomas > sorry, I don't know the birth year of Ann Hough. I think your Hannah (Ann) was most probably my grandma's Aunty. Unfortunately my mother doesn't know the names of her grand-parents (another strange mystery!) apart from the surname Bradley! I can tell you that my grandma Lily had a twin sister called Jane > Jane died aged 5 in 1903. They were the youngest of a family of 14 children (12 girls & 2 boys - known names listed below, dates not known), there mother died whilst giving birth to her 15th child > the child also died. 1: Ann 2: Phebe 3: Thomas 4: George 5: Lucy 6: Sarah 7: Fanny 8: Mary 9: Emma 10: Alice 11: ? 12: ? 13 & 14: Lily & Jane, born 2nd Sept, 1898. At the time of my grandma's birth they were living at Eccups Lane, Morley Green, Wilmslow, Cheshire. There's not much more I can enlighten you on now John regarding the birth of Aunty Margaret, other than the above 'brief' information/explanation as given to my mother by her mother - my grandma. If the name 'Bradley' and 'Bollin Grove' mentioned in your last email to me are 'not' just a coincidence then I would guess that my grandma had a baby to her cousin Thomas > this would further explain the secrecy surrounding this mystery. If this is correct, then my 'personal' connection/link with Hannah Carswell (nee Bradley) is similar to yours - she was a sister to my great grandfather Bradley! Hope you found the above of some interest and not too confusing > story telling was never my favourite subject, sorry! If you can investigate this mystery further with any of the information given, please feel free - my mother and I would be most grateful!! All the best - Chaz and Mother Betsy.

Betty Tournier writes 2002 :-" When Herbert Room died my grandmother(Jean) & Aunt Aggie tried living together but without Aunt Maggie ,they could not get on together & my grandmother came to us. Aunt Aggie went to live in a tiny cottage attached to Bollin Grove House. ,often filled with stray cats. She always insisted that she wanted to be buried at Bispham near Blackpool as Robert (her brother) was lonely there but she died during the war & had to be buried at Prestbury. I have never been able to locate her grave. I remember her as a tiny lady in a long black skirt with a straw hat tied under her chin & a basket ready to pick rasberries. When old Uncle Tom Carswell died they had to buy out Harry's widow & were strugling financially for some years so rasberries provided an important income. .-fresh rasberies,bottled rasberies,rasbery jam & rasbery vinigar ect.Things were easier when Aunt Janet inherited money from Uncle Willie Handford. Young Uncle Tom was a happy simple man adept of keeping out of Aunt Janets way as she always had a long list of things for him to do." 
Carswell, Agnes (I53)
