"The Mill at Covington was on the Glade Burn which rises near the summit of Tinto passing through Eastend and being joined by the Cleugh Burn at Warrenhill before flowing on to join the Clyde just north of Boat Bridge. Not much more than a stone throw upstream from Covington Mill was Thankerton Mill where the Galloway family had been millers for possibly even longer than the Fishers had been at Covington..." - From Covington & Thankerton, Volume 1, compiled by William A.

Some History - The Covenanters

The "Killing Times"

The period from 1680 until 1685 was one of the fiercest in terms of persecution and a few months between 1684-5 became forever known as the "Killing Times". Charles' brother James II had come to the throne, he was a believer in the Devine Right of Kings and a supporter of the Roman Catholic faith. It became his sworn intent to totally eradicate the Presbyterians.

Parish Lists were drawn up in accordance with instructions to the Episcopalian Curates to furnish Nominal Rolls of all persons, male and female, over the age of 12 within their Parishes. The Ministers were ordered to give "..a full and complete Roll of all within the Parish" and "that to their Knowledge they give Account of all Disorders and Rebellions, and who are guilty of them, Heritors or others.." Their instructions concluded, "..No remarks need be made upon these Demands made upon every Curate in every Parish; they are plain enough, as also their Design.." The 'design' of this census was obviously to assist in the control and persecution of the Covenanters.

These were the most horrific and atrocious times ever inflicted on the people of Scotland. The Covenanters were now flushed out and hunted down as never before and the common soldier was empowered to take life at will of any suspect without trial of law. Usually it was done without any evidence and often as the result of the suspicions of an over-zealous town official or Minister. Brutality in these days defied the imagination and the persecution had no mercy on man, woman or child, irrespective of circumstances. Any class of Covenanter once caught by the King's troops was shot or murdered on the spot.

SIR DAVID JAMES GALLOWAY (1858 - 1943)

"David James Galloway was the son of David Galloway, a native of Thankerton, and Janet Lightbody who was born in Carstairs. He was born in Edinburgh and educated at Daniel Stewart’s College and Edinburgh University, where he graduated M.B.C.M., and later was gold medallist M.D. of the same university. After practising for a short time in Edinburgh, he went to Singapore where he rendered numerous public services in the Straits Settlement. He was vice-chairman of the Straits Settlement Opium Commission in 1908. Later he became a member of the Executive Council and Legislative Council of the Straits Settlement. He was physician to the late Sultan of Johore, a JP for Singapore and was decorated Order of the Crown of Johore. The School of Medicine in Singapore owes much of its standing to his energies where he was Lecturer in Practical Medicine. He was knighted in January 1924, at which time he was consulting physician in Singapore. He was the author of several monographs on tropical diseases."

The Bard of Thankerton

The following poem was written by Archibald Galloway at the grand old age of 84. Archibald was a cotton handloom weaver in Thankerton. He was the youngest son of William Galloway, the miller in Thankerton Mill. His eldest brother David was the schoolmaster at Lamington; the second brother William succeeded his father as a miller and farmer; and the third brother James was a wright in Thankerton.

LIKES TO TINTO

Majestic Tinto, I have seen thee tower
O’er minor hills full four score years and four,
I’ve seen thee decked in all thy summer pride,
With purple heather waving in thy side.

I’ve seen thee dimly through a misty cloud,
I’ve seen thee robed in snow, thy winter’s shroud,
Through every varying season of the year,
Thou’rt always interesting, ever dear.

I’ve seen a cloud around thy summit form,
Give indication of approaching storm,
Dense and more dense it’s sable front would grow,
Then burst in fury on the plain below.

Lightning would flash and thunder wildly roar,
Appalling hearts that scarce knew fear before,
How oft in youth I’ve climbed thy slippery steep,
Drank from thy crystal spring the waters sweet.

Rested awhile to gain fresh strength and wind,
And gaze upon the plain I left behind,
What mighty changes come in four score years,
What gleams of joy, what sorrow, and what tears.

Nothing on earth is from mutation free,
Yet, lovely hill, I mark no change on thee,
Tinto, I love thee, but may never more
Stand on the summit as in days of yore.

Never again shall burst upon my sight,
Scenes that at once astonish and delight,
Doubtless you’ve stood since first the world began,
Fulfilling part of the creator’s plan,
How long thou’lt stand, no mortal tongue can tell,
But thou hast done thy part, and done it well.

2. The Lint Mill, as possessed by James Galloway

Lint Mills prepared the fibres of flax plants for spinning into linen (called lint in Scotland). The first were built in the 1720s; in the century which followed some 700 were added. - from thelintmill.co.uk

The Mill Loch is the deepest of the three main lochs reaching a depth of over 14 metres (50 feet). As its name suggests it supplied a mill downstream where the old gasworks were sited on a lane named Mill Road. There was also a Lint (Flax) Mill at the head of the loch, sited on the burn coming from the Upper Loch.Its main claim to fame is that it was home to the world renowned Vendace fish the last of which was netted from the loch in 1966 and can now be viewed in the Council Chambers of Lochmaben Town Hall and in Dumfries Museum. - from Lochmaben & District Community Initiative

Our connection is from Jeff & Glenda Waugh through Agnes Hunter (our grandmother), William Robert Hunter, Catharine Brockie, Mary Green and Catharine Galloway.

I am descended from James Galloway (Lochmaben) that married Isabella Wright (Lockerbie) prior to 1834 when they immigrated to New Brunswick and had their first son (George), before coming on to Ontario. My James, who settled in Scot Township, Ontario County, Upper Canada, was the son of your George G. b. 1767, son of James G. b. 1726 and Fergusia Montgomery. Your information about William Galloway and Catharine Lindsay being the parents of James G. 1726 is new to me. Were they in Lochmaben also? I have just recently started chasing the Galloway, Wright, Moffat branches.

My great grandfather is the Alexander in your 1861 census for Scott township. I spent several days in what was Scott township – Uxbridge last year before the Ontario Genealogy Society annual conference. I had previously photocopied much of the family information in Thomas’s book in the McMaster University Medical library, which I knew of since my grandmother had once had a copy. From the old family Bible (which I think ended up with one of the cousins) I could not be sure whether James had married Isabella Wright or Agnes Gray or Grey, but sorted that out from other records. Before that I was working on Simcoe County ancestors. Unfortunately, I did not become sufficiently interested in ancestors until too late to get first hand information, not that my parents knew that much. One aunt was a family history keeper on my mother’s side, but again too late now!

The 78th held the area it had taken from the Siegfried Line against the violent German attacks throughout the winter. The Division attacked, 30 January 1945, and took Kesternich, 2 February, the town of Schmidt on the 8th, and captured intact the vital Schwammanauel Dam the next day. In the advance, the Roer River was crossed, 28 February, and the division joined the offensive of the First and Ninth Armies toward the Rhine. That river was crossed over the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen, 8 March, by the 310th Regiment, the first troops to cross in the wake of the 9th Armored Division. That unit, attached to the 9th Armored and acting as a motorized unit had driven across Germany capturing Euskirchen, Rheinbach, and Bad Neuenahr. The 78th expanded the bridgehead, taking Honnef and cutting part of the Autobahn, 16 March. From 2 April to 8 May, the division was active in the reduction of the Ruhr Pocket and at VE-day was stationed near Marburg. The division remained on occupation duty in Germany until it was deactivated on 22 May 1946. - Wikipedia
