A History of the Shire of Renfrew
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (454 pages)
Author: G. Crawfurd & W. Semple
This is a history of a county located along the western coast of Scotland, bordered by the river Clyde and Dunbartonshire on the north and northeast, and by Lanarkshire on the east, the Firth of Clyde to the west, and Ayrshire on the south-southwest. The history begins with an extended study of the Stewart family and its cadet lines and extended kin, as well as other great families and peers identified with the region or with the Stewarts. It proceeds to an account of the 16 parishes of Renfrewshire and to the history, families, and culture of those individual sections of the larger county. Among the families particularly of interest to the county and to the authors are: Alexander, Barclay, Boyd, Brisbane, Brown, Buchanan, Caldwell, Campbell, Cathcart, Cochran, Crawfurd, Cunningham, Denniston, Douglas, Dunlop, Erskine, Finlayson, Fleming, Fulton, Galbraith, Graham, Glen, Hall, Hamilton, Houston, How, Hutchison, Kerr, Kibble, King, Knox, Logan, Lyle, McDowell, McGilchrist, McKerrel, Maxwell, Millar, Montgomery, Morton, Murdoch, Mure, Napier, Orr, Park, Paterson, Pollock, Porterfield, Rae, Ralston, Ross, Semple, Shaw, Speir, Spreul, Stewart, Stirling, Walkinshaw, and Wallace.
