So it looks as if Ebenezer House/Ebenezer Field House was within the grounds of the sugar refinery.


Spotted this at the weekend whilst searching the PO Directories on the excellent National Library of Scotland website ...

George WHYATT, manager of Murdoch & Doddrell, Port Dundas Sugar Refinery, living at Ebenezer Field, Craighall Rd, Glasgow, 1858-61.

He was also living there in the 1861 census. He died 1864.

Yes, so it looks as though Ebenezer Field was a type of "tied cottage" for an employee of the refinery.
Almeroth, Germany (probably Hessen).

Any chance that Henry was the manager in 1872?

1868-9, 1869-70, 1870-71, 1871-2. Under Springbank in the Suburban Section. Can't find him later, but Springbank disappears, so he may have moved or just be in a different section. (I don't know Glasgow !)

Thank you so much.

I will keep on looking. I have completely lost them in the 1881 census so who knows. I can find some of their children but not them.

Thanks again
