Hi Stirling76


Re. Baker Street - I have just discovered that we had a John Livingstone who was a Chemist/Druggist and had his shop at number 58 Baker Street for about 30 years until he died in 1912. I don't think he ever married. Familiar to anyone?


PWN, re John Livingstone, his shop was at 58 Baker Street, but he lived at 44 Broad Street, not sure if you knew this.

That clears something up Stirling 76.He (James Stein) isn't on there but I can see where he was working.At number 35 are his brothers-in-law the Pate's.They and his wife were the children of John Pate also a shoemaker in Linlithgow.All of them originally came from Linlithgow.James' son John was also a shoemaker in Glasgow.

ps.thanks for that list,another piece in the jigsaw.

Hi I have a relative who apparently died in the Miner's Welfare Institute in Baker St. Does anyone know where that was?

Hi kirstymac,
I'll look through my files, but it's a new one on me, Miner's Welfare in Baker Street, you got a name for the relative?

Ah! got him, he is listed in the 1881 directory at 32 Baker Street and the Pate's shop was at 35 Baker Street, almost directly across the road. My gut feeling tells me that number 32 was a lodging house, certainly a large tenement and part of what today is Dalgleish Court, however there were a lot of businesses listed at No.32, it may be that he had a workshop there, but if his Brother-in-laws has a shop called Pate Brothers, he most likely lived at 32 and worked at 35.

I think you are probably right Stirling 76 in that they lived at 32 and worked over the road.James and his wife still had the three youngest living with them,John 21,Elizabeth(my great gran)15 and James 10.John is already a shoemaker so possibly also working for his uncles.That is a great detailed description of the buldings a few posts back.

Hi Stirling 76. My relative was Patrick D'Arcy and he died in 1934. However when I look again it lists place of death as Miners Institute Welfare Burghmuir Stirling - would that be Baker St? I may have got mixed up as he lived at 44 Baker St.

Another relative was Hugh Thomson who live at 14 Baker St and died in 1948. I can remember visiting him.
