My gr. gr. grandfather Thomas Newton came to Glasgow sometime between 1818/1822. He married Helen McLoun. He was an iron founder. His son became a soap manufacturer and emigrated to NZ where he established the same business calling his soap powder, St Mungo. I am trying to find out more information about Thomas Newton and his iron founding. Can anyone help me as to how to go about this please? Are there any directories of that time, if so where are they? Katherine

Does anyone remember my mum LARAINE LEES, she went to St Bonaventures in the early 60's. Or my granda JAMES LEES, who I think was from Oatlands in the 1950's - 60's?

Does anyone remember my mother Betty Grant (born 1928) from Pollokshaws Rd, Eglinton St, then Devon St, and my father Jimmy Farrelly (born 1924) from Dunmore St? My father's family were Verrechias and had two or three cafes, one called the Bedford Cafe I think! I don't know the names of the others. I'd be grateful for any memories. Many thanks

I was born in Crown Street in 1933 and have two brothers Jackie and Jim (sister Violet died a few years a go). I went to St Lukes and then Holyrood School. I would like to hear from anyone who may remember us.
