Still Under Construction



Mary Andrew
and
her family



Mary Andrew was born at Port Glasgow 13 Oct 1749.
Daughter of William Andrew and Mary Benson


"notes taken from Journal of William Macfie"


Wm. Andrew my maternal grandfather was born a Monkton near Ayr , 9th March 1708 , he was the son of Tho Andrew, blacksmith Monkton. His mother's name was McQuater (McWhirter) .

(MONKTON THEN)


(MONKTON - 20TH CENTURY)


(phtos compliments of Fenella Dunn)

I think my grandfather was the eldest of the family.

In the parish register there is the name Wm Andrew son of Alex Andrew, shoemaker Prestick, born 1727. This person I conceive was a cousin of my grandfather.

The register does not shew the rest of Tho Andrew's family , but I know of three besides my grandfather.


1st : James Andrew for many years manager of the Estates of Mr Oswald of Auchancruve Ayrshire, I think he died about 1810 at New Abbey Dumfriesshire & left a large family

2 : David Andrew , carpenter in Ayr, he built many ships & left three sons Thomas , David , Robert and two daughters


3 : Mrs Tod the mother of Jas Tod & Miss Tod & Mrs Ritchie


Wm Andrew my grandfather went I presume early to sea & probably served his time at Ayr. He sailed long from Pt Glasgow as a ship master commanding ships in the Virginia trade which belonged to Mr Dunlop of Garnkirk. When this gentleman failed in 1793 my grandfather was a creditor for �700 or �800 . He also was in command of some ships belonging to Jas Gemmil Esq. I have heard Mr Gemmil speak of him. Wm Andrew built a house in Church St., Port Glasgow in 1749 the same year my mother was born, his family were all born in Pt Glasgow

About he year 1774 he came to Greenock, and built as I have been told, the first house in Cathcart St , where he resided till his death about the year 1792.

The first sugar refinery in Greenock, other than primitive in type , was erected about 1765, at the foot of Sugar House Lane, on ground previously occupied y Messrs Donals, Whaye & Company, rope and sailcloth makers. The promoters of the venture were Messrs Alex Wilson of Glanderstone, Thomas Hopkirk , Claud Alexander of Newton and Arthur Connel , merchants in Glasgow, with Messrs Thomas Dunlop, Archibald White and William MacCunn, merchants in Greenock. These gentlemen assumed as practical patner or "boiler" Mr Mark Khull , who apparently held one eight share in the concern an who worked in the sugar refining business until his death in 1782.

The IGI records show a George McEwen born 1869 to John and Janet ; perhaps William Macfie made a mistake in his notes and marked John who died in 1818 in stead of George, or George was known perhaps as John. There are no records in the IGI system for a John McEwen  as a son of John and Janet.

The IGI records list this family as McEuen
