While researching some family history for a friend I found grandparents who were married in 1907 by Rev William Bisset Gardiner according to the rights of the Original Secession Church. I found some interesting information on the church in Pollokshaws Heritage Trail which gives some historical information on the secession chuch and the Rev Gardiner.

The Rev Gardiner is buried in Eastwood Old Cemetery.

The marriage was between the Cathcart and Clark families. The Cathcarts were originally Presbyterians from Ireland, near Ballymena. The Clarks were from Kilmarnock, but go back to the Tarbolton area of Ayrshire.

My Concise Scots Dictionary shows the first secession of 1733 splitting into the Anti-Burghers and the Burghers. The Anti-Burghers split in 1806 into Auld Lichts and New Lichts. The majority of Auld Lichts joined the Free Church, leaving the Original Secession Church to continue the congregations.

The attached file shows how the Established Church of Scotland evolved over the years.

I wonder if there are people from the Secessionist congregation visiting these bulletin boards. I would be interested in any insights or memories of the Pollokshaws congregation.
