Blantyre Project reader Gerry, his father and son were looking in the Calder for anything interesting and at the end of their search found this, on 2nd April 2018.
I won’t pretend I know much about silverware, but this seems a wonderful find. That period, especially around Milheugh at the Calder saw great change when the former house was extended hugely and hundreds of years of ownership by the Miller family ended by passing to the Bannatynes, (although still related to the Miller family). The gardens were also massively extended, improved upon and landscaped.
