WOW, lots of work researching the history of Clydebank, Well done HH!!

Robert & Ann Paterson were shown on the 1871 Census as he being an arable farmer and the family living at West Barns of Clyde farm just north of Yoker, west of Glasgow. This farm no longer exists as was ploughed under in the 1950s to make way for the huge Drumchapel housing development.

He is shown as 44 years of age and Ann at 33. with daughter Jane aged 6, Robert aged 4 and Samuel aged 2.

Robert is shown as born in Stonehouse Parish, Lanarkshire and Ann born in Eaglesham, Lanarkshire.

Robert and Ann (nee Wallace), lived in "the Cottage Clyde Bank" as per the census 1881.
They appear to have more children than we knew about...
Children+ (although Familysearch data has their DOB one year earlier than recorded on the census data page?)
Jane Paterson c1885
Samuel Paterson c1869
James Paterson c 1872
John Paterson DOB 03 Oct 1874( our family link as John aka Jack Paterson moved to New Zealand)
Lillias Paterson c1880
Robert Paterson c1867

Question: so where was ‘The Cottage, Clydebank? Does anyone know please.

Sputnik, Thank you.

I haven't yet found an Andrew Paterson in our line, but I will certainly keep this note for future reference just in case I do.  

Cheers

Kia Ora!

I just bumped into this forum.  I recently learned that my father was born at 7 Miller Street, Clydebank in 1927, and I am interested to learn more about it.  Incredibly, I have only just learned of the Clydebank Blitz!  As best as I can tell, 7 Miller St was the end block of a tenement that wrapped round onto Dumbarton Rd.  I believe it was adjacent to the railway line.

I am interested to know what became of that particular block.  I know it is no longer there, but I'm wondering if it was demolished in the aftermath of the Blitz, although I haven't uncovered any evidence that it was actually damaged during the Blitz.

Finally, I have not seen any photographs of it, and I'm wondering if anybody has one?  For myself, I was born in Glasgow in 1955, but left in 1965.

Thanks, from Montreal :)

Thanks for taking the time to reply, Sputnik.  So interesting to read that your family also comes from Miller St.  If the buildings survived 25 years or so after the war, I'm hoping the chances are better that a photograph will turn up sometime.

I came to Glasgow in 2012 for the first time since the 60's, and was quite staggered by the extent to which the old structures that I remember have been so totally erased.  My memories are mostly of Springburn, where I lived from '61-'65, and there is hardly a building still standing now from the time I lived there.

I lived in Ardenlea Street (in Dalmarnock) from '55-'59.  Kenny Dalgliesh lived there at the same time!  When I went to take a look I discovered that it had only just been pulled down to make way for athlete accommodation at the Commonwealth Games.

Finally, my Dad owned a wool shop on London Rd in Bridgedon for a short time, and much to my surprise, just about the only surviving tenement structure today is quite possibly the one where his shop used to be.

It is such a shame that the very distinctive public face of Glasgow and its environs has been so systematically erased.  It seems to me that what has replaced it offers no comparable sense of 'place'.  When you see what has been made of the few surviving tenement structures, you can't help but wonder if there might not have been a better way.

just had a look at tom mckendricks clydebank blitz map and it would appear that miller st took three direct hits but all on the other side from number 7.i have only ever seen a photo of miller st school online not of any of the houses.
