A big thanks to you all. I've been hunting for Calton on maps for a while now, could never find it even on old reprinted 1895 OS maps. Now I've got a better idea. I've got the address for an old ancestor on Main Street, Calton, Glasgow. Would anybody know where Main St was?

Hi wee brucey i think main st was part of whats now called Claythorn Avenue as i know that the junction of claythorn ave and stevenson street is where Calton Cross was hope this helps i am a true caltonian as many generations of my family were born and died herebahoo1

A direct ancestor lived in Calton in 1763 and in 1851 my great great grandfather lived at 175 Main Street Calton. I'd be intersted to know where in Glasgow Calton is.

GGgrandfather was a Sheriff officer--was that a police officer does anybody know?

I'm sure there are a few on here who've been visited by a Sherrif Officer. They're a mix between a bailiff and a debt collector.
