I love things like this! Blantyre Project reader, Helen Jackson lives in Queensland, Australia and having ancestry and family from Blantyre, Scotland she has called her house over in Australia, ….”Blantyre“! Here’s the house sign which is proudly displayed outside, all those miles away.
During the 19th and early 20th Century, Helen’s family, the Jacksons lived in ‘Croftfoot’, at High Blantyre, now my own home.
