  • Notes 
    • James came to live in Scotland around 1840 from County Fermanagh in Ireland. He was an agricultural labourer, when he first arrived and he lived on Wilson's Land in Bridgeton with his wife Ann and their three children, James (my great grandfather) aged 5 years, Patrick aged 4 years and Ann 11 months. Baby Ann was born in Scotland in 1840. The other two children were born in County Fermanagh.
      He had a variety of different jobs including engine stoker in a cotton factory. The cotton industry at that time was booming and their were many cotton factories in Glasgow. Most people in the east end of the city tended to work in them in one capacity of another. His final occupation before his death in 1873 was gardener.
