Looking for any advice or information on a family named Black (Lewis, Sarah, Mary) who, I believe, may have moved to Castlemilk Drive, in Castlemilk, Glasgow around 1958.......they may have had a connection with Birgidale road, which I believe is in the same vicinity.
I believe Lewis at least, remained in the same area in 1960/61, and possibly longer?
I can locate them in the census for this period, but at the moment, this is all the information I have and feel like I’ve hit a brick wall!
There may have been a sister - Ann/e. I think Lewis may have been born somewhere around 1938, give or take a year or two.

Any assistance with this quest will be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you
David

Regarding the family named ‘Black’......they may have been friendly with, or at least known of a family named ‘Collins’ (Davy & Lizzie - both now sadly deceased), also of Castlemilk Drive.
There may also be a chance that members of the Family named ‘Black’ May have emigrated to Canada!?
Any help at all researching this matter will be greatly appreciated - Thank you!

Sorry I can't be of help. There are not so many folk tuning in to this site these days so please don't think we are ignoring your request. There was a member who had her own website on Castlemilk, her board name was Weesue. If you check the Castlemilk thread in Glasgow districts, you might find a link to her web pages.

Good luck with your search thumbup.gif

Good luck with your search, dcip.

A few years ago, I posted a message in the Cranhill section seeking anyone who remembered some family members of mine called Murphy. I got a message from a lady in Glasgow who knew one of my cousins but had lost touch with her. She was excited when I messaged my cousin who now lives in Los Angeles and she contacted her old friend. I was happy to be a go-between for them (from New Zealand), so it's worth a try. It truly is a small world!

Many thanks for your response.......it is indeed a small world, I like your tag about holding onto your heritage...Crucial!
I’ll keep going and searching, difficult at times when you feel like you’ve hit a brick wall.......but, one day, maybe 😊
Thanks again!!

Further Update:

It appears Lewis Black & Sarah Black(potentially husband & wife) originate from what was ‘Howwood street’, Govan area, until re-locating to Castlemilk drive, once built. I think they lived in Howwood street from the early 1940’s until app. 1958. ( Howwood street was originally off Scotland street, and now, I imagine, under the M8/74!
At some point, Mary Black arrives, possibly the daughter of Lewis & Sarah?......and all 3 move from Howwood street, Kinning Park/Govan, to Castlemilk Drive.

The more I dig, the more complicated it gets 😊
The links between the family ‘Black’ May even go back to 1935, and possibly even earlier at 131, Howwood street.
At some point around this time, a Louise Black also appears on the Electoral register.

There is also mention of Lewis Black living in Parliamentary road in the early 1930’s.

Maybe clutching at straws, but, Lewis’s parents ‘may’ have been James & Olive Black (Nithsdale road)

I hope someone, somewhere can shine some light on this??

Many, many thanks!
David

Further to all of the above.......further information has come to light - Does anyone have any information regarding Lewis Stuart Black, who lived in or around Nithsdale road in Glasgow, possibly married in 1940 to Clara Butters, with (2) children between them , and then maybe moving to Bristol, England in the early1960’s?
Many thanks in anticipation of any reply..

..........particularly interested in hearing from anyone who remembers anything at all concerning....
Lewis, Sarah & Mary Black - Electoral/census records have them residing in 225 Castlemilk Drive in 1962.......and then they just vanish!!!?

Any information regarding this family would be greatly appreciated - Thank you
