Robert Stewart Why Spittal House, surely the house was part of Spittal Farm and not a separate entity?
Blantyre Project not sure Robert. Like Coatshill, its noted separately as Spittal House & Farm in early census. It may have been known as Spittal Farm House too?
James Richardson Spittal farm belonged to John Robb ,who kept and raced standardbred’s Rob Roy and Star Boy etc. Behind the farm nearer Blantyre there was tan training track laid.
