Stoneymeadow – Blantyre

Stoney Meadow - BlantyreHi Bill,

I was wondering if you had any information about this home. My granny lived there until 1921 when she came to Canada. One pic is original and one is from when I took a trip in 2005 so I know it is still standing. It was and still is called Stoneymeadow, her family ran the little store but other than that I do not know too much. Her family last name was Jamieson. If anyone knows any history it would be greatly appreciated. Darlene Davis

Hi Darlene,

Stoney Meadow Today - BlantyreThis Stoneymeadow photo brings back lots of memories. This was a sweet shop when I was a boy and was our halfway treat to stop for crisps and pop half way during our frequent walks up the Calder (Cauther).

The buildings still exist as a family home.

If anyone knows any further info, please let me know.


Chieftain Bus at Stoneymeadow

 Chieftain Bus at Stoneymeadow It’s hard to believe nowadays that a Bus service by Laurie of Hamilton, the proprietors of the ‘Chieftain Buses’, ran a service from Hamilton along High Blantyre Road, Burnbank, Main Street High Blantyre, and up Stoneymeadow Road and across the Generals Bridge to East Kilbride Village and Hairmyres Hospital. Quite a scenic route.

When you consider that an average wage for a 48 hour week in 1952 was £7-10/- Then 6/- was a large proportion of your weekly wage… the good old days…. eh!
