On Wednesday 20th March 1861 at High Blantyre, Mrs T Mackie, wife of Thomas Mackie, a dye worker gave birth to a set of triplets! All children, three boys were delivered safely and mother.
It got me thinking, it’s not a subject I’ve written about before. Do you know of any other triplets being born to Blantyre folk?

Jen MacPen Thomas is family and one of the endless Mackies born and raised at Orchardhead in High Blantyre. Two of his elder brothers, David and John, were twins. His hard working wife was Janet Mann. The babies were christened James, Robert and Thomas (named for paternal and maternal grandfathers and father).There is a subsequent newspaper report which sadly reveals that Baby Thomas sadly dies a few days later.

I believe my grandfathers siblings the Marshall triplets were from Blantyre
