Hi!

I came across this site and your topic post when I was idling away some time on-line, seeing if I could uncover any photographs of my great-grandfather's herbalist shop in Renfrew Street, as I am very interested in local history and also that which pertains to my own family.

I believe that both my great grandfather and his brother both ran herbalist shops in Glasgow, his brother running the other in Paisley Road West.  My great grandfather had four children, of which my late and much loved gran was the second.  His first child was a girl and his two youngest were boys.  Neither Billy or Tommy were interested in taking over the family shop so the shop sadly ended with my great-grandfather.  Unfortunately gran and all her siblings have now passed away.  The best person to speak with would be my mum, who will have more knowledge than myself and has personal memories of the shop.  I will tell her about your request today but I wanted to send you an initial message.

What is your own connection?

Exciting stuff!

Gavin.

Hi Jaime... fancy meeting you here!

Hi Gavin, nice to meet you!

Yes, I'm another relative. James was the father of Jane Whiteside, who was the mother of Helen Whiteside Berridge, who was my gran.

Unfortunately my side of the family was unbelievably bad at relating any information relating to family. This is the first I've heard of David! And I'm sure we have more relatives in Scotland.

Wish I'd known when I lived in the UK, but I'm in the US now. But any information you can provide, I'd be most grateful.

My email is .

Regarding the herbalist in Renfrew Street, Glasgow: James Whiteside (1842-1920)

I believe the shop was in a small arcade (Queens Arcade) on Renfrew Street. The family appear in the 1911 census at 120 Renfrew Street. James Whiteside (69) is the herbalist while his son Thomas (27) is classed as an assistant shopkeeper, herbalist. He later becomes the herbalist. A Glasgow Directory gives the shop address as 122 Renfrew street. Thomas's brother John K Whiteside was also a herbalist with a business at 317 Paisley Road.
Another interesting family fact: Thomas had a sister (daughter of James Whiteside) Margaret Vance Whiteside who married a BROWN, ROBERT Initials: R Nationality: United Kingdom Rank: Lieutenant Regiment/Service: Highland Light Infantry Unit Text: 1st/7th Bn. Age: 26 Date of Death: 06/02/1919. Margaret never remarried.

In Memory of
Lieutenant
Robert Brown
1st/7th Bn., Highland Light Infantry who died on 06 February 1919 Age 26
Son of Robert and Cecilia Brown, of North Lodge, Stapleton Tower, Arman, Dumfriesshire; husband of Margaret V. Whiteside Brown, of 120, Renfrew St., Glasgow. Born at Glasgow
Remembered with Honour

I have James Whiteside listed as dob 11 June, 1841. On 12 Dec 1847 he married Jean (known as Jane) Connell. He died on 13 March 1920.

Jean Connell was born 23 May 1844 in Cadder, Lanark. She died on 29 April 1916.

She and James had one daughter, Jane, born 1876. She married James Vair in 1896. They moved to the US in 1907. Their five daughters were Agnes, Jean, Helen (my gran), Elizabeth and Margaret.

I had no inkling that they'd had other children.... but since Ancestry dot com is apparently offering a new feature where non-members can view the family trees posted by members, I'd be delighted to add all this in and give you all access to my tree.

Somewhere I have a photo of James standing outside the herbalist show on Renfrew.


Now apparently I need to find the private messaging feature so I can give you all my email address and Ancestry url....

WOO HOO!! More cousins!!!
