Pettigrews at Malcolmwood

The Pettigrews of Malcolmwood Farm , Blantyre are photographed below. This family once owned not only Malcolmwood Farm farming the land around it, but also owned the former house/mill at Dyseholm and properties at Barnhill, including around 1875, the Barnhill Tavern.

There’s no date on his photo, but from fashions, perhaps this is the 1930s or 40s? I hope to unravel the detail about the Pettigrew family and how they fit into Barnhill in due course and with thanks to Alex Rochead, have amassed a lot of information on standby for that task.

Meantime, with thanks to the Rochead family at Malcolmwood for this excellent photo.
