Miss Jean S McLean of LochRyan Cottage, 276 Main Street, High Blantyre signs the register after her wedding at Blantyre Old Parish Church to Mr. Alexander McClean, who lived nearby at 13 Park Crescent.

Jean was a teacher at West Coats School in Cambuslang and her family owned the newsagents at High Blantyre. Whats your memories of this well known couple?

Moyra Lindsay We were married just months apart. I had a preview of Jeans dress and veil the morning of her wedding as I was doing her hair. We lived yards apart when first married and I also remember them from school, they were going out with each other then. I remember her running up Craig St. just as our car left the church after our service, she had rushed from a school in Cambuslang to see us!
Moyra Lindsay Also I always stop at the cemetery at the McLean/ McClean grave!

Jean Mcclean Isobel Hollis yes

Isobel Hollis Jean Mcclean .. I am so glad to hear that news!
I was Isobel Adair way back then; my late twin was Margaret. It seems like a lifetime ago though! 😉

Jean Mcclean Isobel Hollis Sorry to hear that. I remember the Adair twins and the Tall is twins were in Alistairs class. He died just over two years ago.

Isobel Hollis I was so sorry to hear that news about Alistair, Jean.
My twin died 27 years ago near Christmastime; it seems incredible when I see that in print!
I’ve no contact now with the Tallis twins but I believe Ann is local and Jean is in England.
This site gives me lots of ‘blasts from the past’!😀

Jean Mcclean Isobel Hollis yes that’s where they are.
