Re: [scots-origins] WALLACETOWN / WATTSTON
The information Alex Paterson has given is correct but the graveyards at
Glenmavis were/are known as New Monkland. The Church near them is New
Monkland Church. Although I suspect that both graveyards will now be within
the control of Lanarkshire North Council it was the case at one time that the
part serving Wattston, Greengairs and other villages in that area of
Lanarkshire and under the control of Lanarkshire County Council was known as
New Monkland Landward. My late wife's parents who lived in Luggiebank
(another of the villages) are both buried there.

- An aside from this - am trying to locate Campbell family history. My mother
was named Ann Paterson (middle name). I wonder if there is a connection to
Alan Paterson? Mother's full name was Ann Paterson Steedman - her uncle was
Postmaster in Edinburgh around 1900 or so. Anybody out there have any info?
