In Scotland the name MacGow was, in Gaelic, MacGobha also meaning "son of the smith", was anglicised as both Gow and Smith. There were Gows or MacGowans, a sept of Clan MacPherson, long known as Sliochd an Ghobha Chrom, the "race of the bandy legged smith", from their ancestor Henry Gow of the Wynd. These Smiths became a clan in their own right, being one of the seventeen tribes of the great Clan Chattan federation. The names Gow, Gowan and Smith are also common all over Scotland. MacGobhainn, anglicised as MacGowan and Smith, was the name of a family, which was hereditary smiths to the Clan Donald. Many of the Ulster Smiths descend from one or other of these Scottish families.

David Smith joined the Royal Horse Artillery Drivers in November 1804, and was (according to family sources) at the siege of Badajoz during the Napoleonic Wars in 1812. The siege was one of the bloodiest in the Napoleonic Wars and was considered a costly victory by the British, with some 3,000 Allied soldiers killed in a few short hours of intense fighting as the siege drew to an end, and as many as 4,000 Spanish civilians (who they were trying to "liberate"), including many women and children, massacred by the allied troops after the battle.

Royal Hospital Chelsea

A Chelsea pensioner is an in-pensioner at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, a retirement home and nursing home for former members of the British Army located in Chelsea, London. Historically, however, the phrase applied more widely, referring to both in-pensioners and out-pensioners. During the reign of King Charles II, the Royal Hospital was still under construction, so he introduced a system for distribution of army pensions in 1689. The pension was to be made available to all former soldiers who had been injured in service, or who had served for more than 20 years. By the time the Hospital was completed, there were more pensioners than places available in the Hospital. Eligible ex-soldiers who could not be housed in the Hospital were termed out-pensioners, receiving their pension from the Royal Hospital but living outside it. In-pensioners, by contrast, surrender their army pension and live within the Royal Hospital. In 1703, there were only 51 out-pensioners. By 1815 this figure had risen to 36,757.

Anchor-Donaldson Line, T.S.S. Saturnia

The "Saturnia" was built by C.Connell & Co, Glasgow in 1910 for the Donaldson Line of Glasgow. She was an 8,611 gross ton ship, length 456.3ft x beam 55.3ft, one funnel, two masts, twin screw and a speed of 14 knots. There was accommodation for 250-2nd and 950-3rd class passengers. Launched on 29/3/1910, she sailed on her maiden voyage from Glasgow for Quebec and Montreal on 11/6/1910. In Aug.1911, she collided with an iceberg near Belle Isle but completed her homeward voyage. Her last voyage commenced on 12/3/1925 when she left Glasgow for Portland. She was laid up until 1928 when she was sold, and broken up in Italy the following year. There was a later (1927-1940) Italian liner with the same name.

The Glasgow shipping companies Anchor Line (Henderson Brothers) and the Donaldson Line both operated services to Canada. In 1916 they agreed to share these routes and form a joint company, Anchor-Donaldson, to operate the services. Four Donaldson ships, the Letitia, Saturnia, Cassandra and Athenia, were transferred to the new shipping line. Anchor-Donaldson survived until 1935, when the liquidation of Anchor Line (Henderson Brothers) resulted in the termination of the joint venture and Donaldsons formed the Donaldson Atlantic Line.
