Col John Clark Forrest

Another bite sized chunk of Blantyre History

 

One of the Grand Masters of this Lodge was called. Col John Clark Forrest.

The three streets we have talked about were named after him, John Street, Clark Street, and Forrest Street. His home or Property was called Auchinraith as in Auchinraith Road which we again have referred to.

The street where I lived, called Logan Street, was named after his wife Janet Logan. He must have had a great influence in the village matters to have all these streets named after him and his property.

He was also the provost of Hamilton 1875-81.
For anyone interested in this family, there is a gravestone in the High Blantyre Auld Kirk and Graveyard dedicated to this family.

 Col John Clark Forrest
