I am tracing the Scottish side of my family, my searches have led me to 55 Raglan Street, Glasgow.

I think my Great Great Great Grandfather may have lived there in 1901 his name was Alexander Macdonald, his wife was Alice Macdonald nee Brown they had a son James William Macdonald who is my Great Great Grandfather. they must of Emigrated to canada because they both died there.

If any body knows any infomation about them or if I am on the right track I would be greatful to hear from anyone, or any info on this house and street would be interesting to me. my Scottish Ancestry has been an annoying mystery to me for years it would be great to connect with this side of my past. We are also trying to find out if we had a Tartan so I am trying to go back as far as possible.

Hi Robert, i was wondering if you have any info you can give me. Im 18 years old, and my mother and aunts seem to have a mystery family member. My great grandparents grew up in Cowcaddens, and there was an "Aunt Lizzie" we seem to think her name was Elizabeth Scott.

She either worked in or co-owned a fruit shop near or in cowcaddens. The only memory that my mother has is that her Aunt Lizzie had a pet monkey in the fruit shop?? If it was your family who owned the shop, was there a pet monkey present? We need to find out who Lizzie Scott was, as we dont know whether she was actually related to us or not. It has bothered my Mother for over 50 years, and she needs to know. Any information that anyone has would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Amy.

Hi miconnelly,

Remember the your fathers name but I am the same age as Mick McKells sons so your father must have been older than me.

Hi *Amy Glasgow Girl,

Cant say I knew a Lizzie Scott or her fruit shop never saw a monkey in any shop my family had a fruit shop in Northwoodside Rd from late 1800s to 1950s but there is none of the older ones alive to ask about your Lizzie sorry.

Hi, I'm researching my ancestry. My grandfather lived in Raglan St, other side of the road to the fish mongers. I remember the toffee apples and a sweet shop with a game where you put a penny in and a ball came down the glass front and the pokey hat ice creams. My Grandfathers name was Robert Maxwell, and my dad was Duncan Drummond Maxwell who had a brother Hugh who married a girl called Margaret and they had a sister called Nelly and there were many more siblings who I can't recall. Does anyone recall any of these people?

Hello to all! I am studying my scottish ancestry, and am a descendant from the Lang family that resided at 13 raglan st, and 259 garscube road. I want to get as much information, written and pictures, on the Langs so I can give my nana a family history album for her 82nd birthday. Does anyone remember a John and Mary Lang of 13 Raglan Street, they were there from 1965-1975...or William and Euphemia Lang who resided with their children at Garscube Road during the years 1901-1921? Thankyou all for your time.

Hello Ruth,

I have a copy of the 1901 census in front of me at the moment for 55 Raglan Street, Glasgow.
There is no mention of the names you have quoted.
As far as I am aware the only people at this address were my great great grandfather William Dewar and he lived there at this time with his wife Annie, one daughter named Williamina, one son named William and a grandson named Norman Dewar. I also found out that he died there in 1904.
Feel free to email me back if you would like any more information on where to search, I am curious how your search led you to this address.
All th best,

MAGS

Hi raka,

I grew up in 13 Raglan St in the close infact I remember a Mary Lang believe she moved to the Multi flats in Anniesland helped to carry her stuff down to van for her. Sorry I do not have any photos of Raglan St.
Mary had a relative that I met years later when I worked as a janitor in the schools he repaired the electical equipment work for audio visual services of the education dept.

Regards Hudggy
