Wishaw, a town in Cambusnethan and Dalziel parishes, constituted a police burgh in 1855, and extended in 1874 so as to comprise Wishaw proper, Cambusnethan village and Craigneuk village. Wishaw, standing 420 feet above sea-level, within two miles of the Clyde's right bank, and half-a-mile south of South Calder water, has a station on a section (1880) of the Caledonian, constructed at a cost of 150,000 and extending six miles north-westward from Law Junction to Carfin. It is 3 3/4 miles ESE of Motherwell, 5E of Hamilton, 15 ESE of Glasgow, and 32 WSW of Edinburgh. Laid out in 1794 and pleasantly situated on the south-west face of a hill, it was so late as 1840 merely a large village, but since has grown rapidly to the dimensions of a considerable though straggling town, and is the centre of a vast Mineral trade. It has a Post Office, with money order, savings bank, and telegraph department, branches of the British Linen Company, Clydesdale, Commercial, and Royal Banks, 24 Insurance agencies, 3 hotels, gas works, a town hall, a public library, public park, Saturday liberal newspaper, the Wishaw Press (1876), fairs on the second Thursday of May and the fourth Thursday of October etc. The established Church has four places of worship, the Free Church two, the United Presbyterian two, and there are also Reformed Presbyterian, Primitive Methodist, Evangelical Union, Baptist and Roman Catholic churches. Of schools there are nine, six of them under the school board. Few Scottish towns have grown rapidly than Wishaw such growth been due to the great expansion of its Mineral Industries. These, at the census of 1881, employed 2294 of the 3670 persons here of the 'industrial class' - 1687 in coal mining, 332 in iron manufacture. The burgh is governed by a chief and two junior magistrates and by nine police commissioners. A sheriff small debt court is held every third Thursday and a police court on every Monday or as occasion required, Municipal voters (1885) 1714. Valuation (1858) 8740, (1882) 23, 800 (1885), 26,500.

2017 ..........

Katherine Smith Lammie

Katherine Smith Exham (nee Lammie) 1930-2017 Born in Edmonton, Alberta. Kay passed away peacefully in Langley, BC on May 20th. She leaves to mourn her loss her children: Linda(Dale), Janice(Brian), Bev(Art), Sharon(Don), Barb and Dave; grandchildren: Kathy Jo, Keri, Kelley, Linda Lee, Lee, Chris, Rod, Jason and Kyle and many great-grandchildren. She will be fondly remembered by numerous friends, including those at The Cedars Assisted Living in Mission.

Mom was a gifted soprano and during her earlier years her beautiful voice was heard in auditoriums, theatres and churches, whether she was competing in festivals, performing in operettas or singing for weddings or funerals. She and Dad (a talented tenor) would seek out Choral Societies and/or church choirs wherever they lived, so they could continue their musical journey together. Christmas time in our family home was filled with music; listening to mom sing O Holy Night sent tingles up one's spine and it is a treasured childhood memory.

Mom had unwavering loyalty for her beloved Edmonton Eskimos and Oilers and would playfully challenge anyone cheering for the opposing team. Mom's humour and quick wit made her many friends throughout her life.

She is predeceased by parents William Whitefield Lammie and Janet Lindsay (Waugh) Lammie, siblings Marg Abbott(Hedley) and George Lammie(Lorna) and loving husband, Fred Exham.

Cremation has taken place. A private family memorial will occur at a future date. Special thanks to the staff at the Marrwood Residential Care Facility, Langley Hospital for their caring and support.Katherine Smith Exham (nee Lammie) 1930-2017 Born in Edmonton, Alberta.
