I'm writing on behalf of my mother Serene Janet Miles who is the granddaughter of James Cairns Miekle and would like to provide this thread some information that may assist with the Miekle of Glasgow research.

James Cairns Miekle married Janet Basford at St Albans and their children are as follows:
- John
- Thomas
- James
- William (James nephew, who's mother passed at birth, taken into family as a baby)
- Janet
- Annie (1912 - mother of my mother)

James (Snr.) became an eminent figure in Glasgow book world. Publishers Manager for Oxford University Press for 50 years.

Thomas and William came to Australia under the "Big brother" movement - year unsure. Thomas did go back to visit his mother in 1930.

Thomas married Ena and had 5-6 children. Eldest Gordon who has Canadian citizenship and would visit Australian often to see his mother.

My mum is more than happy to provide further information if you have any queries that she could answer. Mum grew up with James (her grandfather) with her mother Annie as a baby through to teenage...

Feel free to contact me.
