From the typed notes of Rev. Leonard Scott husband of Jean Macfarlane -
Descriptive glimpse of Jean's grandfather, Peter Macfarlane, the shoe-maker:
Jean's Aunt Margaret Macfarlane said to Jean: "My father, your grandfather, was a
very fine man, very clever. He took after his mother. He was a J.P., a Magistrate and
Baillie in the Council, and was always helping someone."
Aunt Margaret also sent us an extract from the "Life and Letters of Sir Henry Jones"
by H.J.W. Hetherington, which was sent to her by her cousin Agnes Macfarlane of
Alexandria whose friend had been secretary to Mr. Hetherington and had recognised
that the person described in the following passage was Agnes's Uncle, Margaret's
father, Jean's grandfather.
"Extract from the Life and Letters of Sir Henry Jones:
" Then began a sort of free fellowship amongst the passengers, and an amount of
kindly good will to me which made things pleasant. In my opinion, a combination of
the "professor" and "Sir" was responsible for the interest, fulfilling what one of my
friends once said, that the title would help me to"guide the ship of fools". But that ia a
harsh and false word, for the Americans can be genuinely kind, and they were at
their best with me. We had discussions in the smoking room, hearty and friendly and
also vigorous over tha Panama Bill, the Monroe Doctrine etc, etc.
The first, on which I entered with the least earnestedness, came about me through
my noticing a square-jawed, heavily built, broad shouldered man, a little younger
than myself, with his skin all freckles, and stiff light yellow hair - one who had been
taciturn, and whose forcefulness seemed to betoken the merciless aggressiveness
of a millionaire - speaking at last. He was about the only one who had not made up
to or bowed to me, or otherwise showed kindly interest. "Well" I heard him say,
"you have given your worr-r-rr-rd " (making the r letter growl and rumble), "and you
should just keep it." He was standing like a granite rock for honesty. I struck in with
him with my "wee bit logic", as Annie calls it, and we bacame great friends. He was
no millionaire at all; he was like myself, a "stickit" shoemaker. He had for years made
boots with his hands somewhere in Scotland, and attended night-schools and is at
present head Manager of the shoe making side of the Glasgow Co-operative Stores,
with some 1,500 men under him - a royal block of manhood."
Extract from "The Press' Glasgow Friday January 19th 1923. Late Peter
Death of former Goven Magistrate, Close of Active Career.

There passed away at Tanoch, Maxwell Drive, Pollockshields, on Friday in his sixty-
seventh year, Mr Peter Macfarlane, J.P., a former magistrate of the Burgh of Govan

and lately manager of the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society Boot Factory,
Shieldhall. Although he has notbeen much in the public eye for the past few years,
ex Baillie Macfarlane was widely known and that his death was mourned by a wide
circle of friends and associates was made manifest by the large numbers which
attended the funeral to Craigton Cemetery on Monday afternoon.

Mr Macfarlane was not a native of Govan, having been born in the village of Drymen
where he attended the local school. At an early age he began his working life as a
shoemaker and while still a young man he left his native village to find employment
in his trade in Alexandria, near Dumbarton. Subsequently he migrated to Glasgow
where he was married, and in course of time went to Kilmarnock. On his return to
Glasgow he entered the service of the Scottish Co-operative Wholesale Society Ltd.,
at Dundas Street, as a boot and shoe operative. When the Shieldhall Factory was
built he was transferred thither as a foreman and sometime afterwards was
appointed assistant manager, graduating to the position of manager in 1904, a post
which he occupied with distinction until a little over a year ago when his retirement
was precipitated by failing health.
It is not claiming too much for Mr. Macfarlane's organising and administrative
capacities to say he practically built up the Boot Factory to the high point of efficiency
which it has maintained for many years. Those who know him best agree that he
was an expert in his own particular line of business, and that there were few men
who could boast such intimate and extensive knowledge of all the phases of boot or
leather trades. To a remarkable business acumen he added a thoroughness and
resoluteness of purpose, characteristic it may be of his race which marked his entire
career and his dealings with men of all stations.
Although for the most part of a quiet, reserved disposition, taking no part in the latter
years of his life at least in public affairs, Mr Macfarlane will be remembered as one of
the most efficient Councillors ever on the old Town Council. He began his municipal
career in 1901 when he was returned as a representative of the Seventh Ward and
when he retired in 1911, the year previous to annexation, he had attained to the
dignity of the Burgh Magistracy and had held some of the most important offices in
the Council.
Even before he entered the Council he had interested himself in certain branches of
social service and previous to the annexation of South Govan he had been largely
responsible for the bringing about of certain improvements and innovations
pertaining to the cleansing of the district. On entry into the Town Council he quickly
proved he was a dedicated acquisition to the administrative strength of the body, and
as a sub convener and latterly convener of the Cleansing Committee he brought
many improvements and increased the efficiency of the department. He was the
prime mover in the scheme which led to the Town Council acquiring Mid Drumoyne
Farm as an adjunct to the Cleansing Department. He had some experience. also, of
buying and selling of horses, the benefit of which he gave repeatedly to the
Cleansing Department
By no means the least noticeable of his services were those given as convener of
the Finance Committee, and indeed he
is remembered by many as Treasurer Macfarlane. In this department of the civic
work he brought all his keen business perception to bear and he filled his office with

acceptance alike to the ratepayers and colleagues and with credit to himself.
On the bench he was stern but just and amply upheld the dignity of his office.
He retired from the Council, as has already been stated in 1911 and since that time
devoted his energies entirely to his business, disappearing from the ken of the
general public. Until about four years ago he resided in South Govan. He is survived
by a widow and a grown up family of five sons and four daughters.
The funeral, which took place to Craigton Cemetery on Monday afternoon, was
attended by a large number of friends and relatives. His former colleagues were
represented by ex- Provost McKechnie and ex- Baillie Munro, while the old Burgh
officials were represented by Mr. T. Dykes. Nine of the twelve directors of the
S>C>W>S> attended, while practically the whole of the staff of the Factory were
present. Morrison Street was also well represented. Numerous floral tributes entirely
filling one of the motors were sent by those who had been associated with him in
active life. The service at the graveside was conducted by the Reverend C. Scott
Burdon of Dean Park Parish Church.
At the forenoon service in Dean Park Parish Church on Sunday, the Reverend C.
Scott Burdon made symapetic reference to the death of ex-Baillie Peter Macfarlane.
The church, said Mr. Scott Burdon had suffered a severe blow by the death of Mr
Macfarlane who was an elder and a trustee. The minister asked the congregation to
remain standing while the "Dead March" was played on the organ by Mr. Geo

3 - The Radical War, also known as the Scottish Insurrection of 1820, was a week of strikes and unrest, a culmination of Radical demands for reform in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland which had become prominent in the early years o
f the French Revolution, but had then been repressed during the long Napoleonic Wars.
An economic downturn after the wars ended brought increasing unrest. Artisan workers, particularly weavers in Scotland, sought action to reform an uncaring government, gentry, fearing revolutionary horrors recruited militia and the government dep loyed an apparatus of spies, informers and agents provocateurs to stamp out the trouble.
A Committee of Organisation for Forming a Provisional Government put placards around the streets of Glasgow late on Saturday 1 April, calling for an immediate national strike. On Monday 3 April work stopped in a wide area of central Scotland an d in a swirl of disorderly events a small group marched towards the Carron Company ironworks to seize weapons, but while stopped at Bonnymuir they were attacked by Hussars. Another small group from Strathaven marched to meet a rumoured larger for ce, but were warned of an ambush and dispersed. Militia taking prisoners to Greenock jail were attacked by local people and the prisoners released. James Wilson of Strathaven was singled out as a leader of the march there, and at Glasgow was e xecuted by hanging, then decapitated. Of those seized by the army at Bonnymuir, John Baird and Andrew Hardie were similarly executed at Stirling after making short defiant speeches. Twenty other Radicals were sentenced to penal transportation.
Thomas McCulloch, John Barr, William Smith, Benjamin Moir, Allan Murchie, Alexander Latimer, Andrew White, David Thomson, James Wright, William Clackson , Thomas Pike, Robert Gray, John Clelland, Alexander Hart, Thomas McFarlane, John Anderson, W illiam Crawford and the 15 year old Alexander Johnstone were in due course transported to the penal colonies in New South Wales or Tasmania. Peter Mackenzie, a Glasgow journalist, campaigned unsuccessfully to have them pardoned, and publishe d a small book: The Spy System, including the exploits of Mr Alex. Richmond, the notorious Government Spy of Sidmouth and Castlereagh.
Eventually, on the 10th August 1835 an absolute pardon was granted.

4 - The nineteen Radicals whose ages ranged from the youngest, Alexander Johnston (15) to the oldest, Thomas McFarlane (45), originally sentenced to death, subsequently commuted to transportation to New South Wales were:
Name | Occupation | Location | Penalty imposed
John Anderson | Weaver | Camelon | Life
John Barr | Weaver | Condorrat | 14 years
William Clackson or Clarkson | Shoemaker | Glasgow | 14 years
James Clelland | Blacksmith | Glasgow | Life
Andrew Dawson | Nailer | Camelon | Life
Robert Gray | Weaver | Glasgow | Life
Alexander Hart | Cabinet-maker | Glasgow | 14 years
Alexander Johnston | Weaver | Glasgow | 14 years
Alexander Latimer | Weaver | Glasgow | 14 years
Thomas McCulloch | Stocking-Weaver | Glasgow | 14 years
Thomas McFarlane | Weaver | Condorrat | Life
John McMillan | Nailer | Camelon | Life
Benjamin Moir | Labourer | Glasgow | 14 years
Allan Murchie | Blacksmith | Glasgow | Life
Thomas Pike or Pink | Muslin Slinger | Glasgow | 14 years
William Smith | Weaver | Glasgow | 14 years
David Thompson | Weaver | Glasgow | 14 years
Andrew White | Bookbinder | Glasgow | 14 years
James Wright | Tailor | Glasgow | 14 Years

James Clelland was to be executed along with Baird and Hardie on Friday 8th September, but three days before he was to die, his sentence was commuted to transportation for life in New South Wales.

William Crawford, Balfron, was sentenced with the above but was 'subsequently released' according to 'The Scottish Radicals. Tried and Transported to Australia for Treason in 1820'. John Anderson Jnr., a printer in Glasgow, was 'transported' o n 4 August 1820 to a Government job in the East Indies for the price of his silence. He had prepared the final draft of the 1820 Proclamation and was probably arrested on Friday 7 April 1820 in order that he could not divulge the 'truth' to the Ra dicals.

5 - The abortive general rising across the west of Scotland in April 1820 had the air of a movement of desperation rather than one of aspiration. Union Societies of 1819– 20 recruited heavily in the weaving communities of the central belt, Tays ide and Perthshire. In the historiography of the 1820 rising itself, it is those who were "martyred" in the most obvious sense, by giving up their lives, whose names are indelibly associated with events: Andrew Hardie, John Baird and James Wilson . Besides these three, however, nineteen other men were transported for their involvement. They have attracted some attention— notably from the descendants of one of the men (Macfarlane, 1981). It was only in 1993, after a prolonged restoration i n the 1980s, that the names of these transported men were added to the monument that had been raised in 1847 in Sighthill Cemetery in Glasgow (Ellis and Mac a'Ghobhainn, 2001, p. xi). This monument itself, and others, demonstrate that the memory o f 1820 played an important role in political culture and language in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (Pentland, 2008). The two men who came back from Botany Bay— Thomas McFarlane and Andrew White— offer useful case studies of how their ow n exile and returns contributed to the continuing "usability" of 1820 in radical politics.

The role of McFarlane was particularly prominent. In contradisctinction to his peers, he was not a young man even in 1820. Born in Glasgow in 1775 or 1776 he had played an active role in the radical movement of the 1790s and was residing in Condor rat at the time of the abortive general rising (Macfarlane, 1981, p. 38). He had been one of the men who had gone with Baird and Hardie to Bonnymuir and had faced and engaged the troops. He also had the dubious distinction of being one of the me n seriously injured in the affray, having sustained a sabre cut across his face. He was transported to Botany Bay for his offences and, after the King granted an Absolute Pardon in 1836, he returned to Scotland in 1839 (Caledonian Mercury, 2 Dec . 1839).

What is interesting is how he was treated when he returned. On 15 January 1840 he was fêted by the Working Man's Association of Airdrie, a Chartist Society, which held its second annual soirée in his honour. The members marched out of Airdrie wit h a band and banners to meet McFarlane in Glenmavis. There were a number of speeches, which were reported in the press, and the public address from the Association amply demonstrated the purpose of the event. Political movements, of course, alway s appeal to the past as well as to the future. Parading veterans is one powerful way of achieving this appeal. The Association reminded McFarlane of his involvement in reform since the 1790s, when he had apparently swallowed a compromising piece o f paper on which was written an illegal oath. Speakers dwelt, however, on his involvement at Bonnymuir, pointing out that he still bore the scar "a convincing proof of the merciful disposition of a Tory government" (Scottish Patriot, 25 Jan. 1840) . Interestingly, all newspaper reports in which McFarlane featured mentioned his scar— both his physical presence and his damaged body served to dramatize the conflict on which radical rhetoric focused. Entertainment at the soirée was provided b y the singing of "Dark Bonnymuir", a composition by one of McFarlane's fellow transportees, Allan Barbour Murchie, which had been published in 1820. The audience was also treated to a performance by the talented Misses Fraser, the daughters of ano ther man who had been "out" in 1820, John Fraser the editor of the True Scotsman (Fraser, 1879, pp. 20– 9). All told, McFarlane's reception was a consummately "1820" event and demonstrates how the memory of the rising was being used within radica l political culture.

This was not the end of McFarlane's involvement in radical politics. 1841 saw an enormous gathering of Chartists in Glasgow to meet Fergus O'Connor, who was visiting the city. "Macfarlane of Condorrat, the aged Bonnymuir martyr" was given pride o f place at the table in the evening sitting alongside O'Connor and was presented with "a handsome ebony staff, silver-mounted, and a sovereign to pay his travel expenses" (Northern Star, 16 Oct. 1841). McFarlane's presence helped to emphasize a ce ntral theme of the rest of O'Connor's visit, during which opportunities were taken not only to mention and draw comparisons with the 1820 rising but physically to escort O'Connor to the sites and relics associated with it. In Stirling, he was take n to the Castle and shown where Baird and Hardie had been executed; he was taken to the dungeon where the prisoners had been held; and he was shown the pikes used by the Radicals, which were held in the armoury (Northern Star, 6 Nov. 1841).

In this way, the return of McFarlane allowed Chartists both to confirm the "Radical War" as a foundational moment and to draw parallels with their own conflict with the state. In newspaper reports McFarlane and earlier radicals were co-opted as th e "pre-cursors of Chartism" or even more simply as "Chartists". McFarlane contributed to the continuing memory of the events of 1820, which would see the monument raised in Sighthill in 1847. Indeed, "the venerable Macfarlane" with his "sabre woun d" was a prominent guest at the dinner commemorating the anniversary of the executions and celebrating the recent erection of the monument (Glasgow Saturday Post, 11 Sept. 1847).

The memory of the events of 1819– 20 could be used in different ways: to support physical force and insurrectionary violence or to justify resistance or as a warning against the dangers of physical force (Pentland, 2008, pp. 153– 7). For it to b e usable at all, however, required a stock of memories, images and relics on which to hang these various interpretations. A returned radical provided the perfect foil. McFarlane clearly was not much of a speaker— there are only a couple of mumble d lines of thanks recorded at dinners in his honour. He was not, however, there to speak. He was far more important as a mute physical relic of the rising, his scar and venerability making him an object to be displayed, a peg on which various inte rpretations could be hanged.

6 - A group of about 25 men from Glasgow led by Andrew Hardie marched towards Condorrat to meet up with John Baird, with a design to gather a force to march on the Carron Iron Works near Falkirk, and capture the munitions there. Meanwhile Lt Elli s Hodgson of the 11th Hussars, quartered in Perth, set off for Kilsyth via Stirling in order to protect Carron where an attack was expected on the 5th April. The government spies and informers had provided good information, and by 6 o'clock on th e morning of Wednesday 5th April, Baird, Hardie and their followers had reached Castlecary Inn where they stopped briefly for for breakfast before heading on. Troops in Kilsyth got wind of their movements. Lt Hodgson left Kilsyth with 16 Hussar s and 16 Yeomanry troopers. At Bonnybridge they left the main road and made for Bonnymuir to intercept the rebels..

When the two forces met, the radicals started firing. After a few more volleys on both sides, the cavalry flanked the rebels, and the end was swift. Nineteen of them were taken prisoner and confined to Stirling Castle.. . . Lt Hodgson and a serge ant of the 10th Hussars were both wounded, the sergeant quite severely hurt, and four of the radicals were also wounded. Seven firearms and eighteen pikes were captured. Thus ended the battle of Bonnymuir.
[ ]

The fact that no trace of Thomas McFarlane has been found in records between the census of 1828 and the time when he received his pardon document in 1839 suggests that he was a quiet, unobtrusive old man, waiting hopefully and patiently for te da ys when the efforts of those in Scotland, who he knew were actively campaigning for a pardon the banished radicals of 1820, were crowned with success.
Being a man of forty five years when transported he was the eldest of the group by five years and his height of five feet four and three quarter inches was just below the average. Although in 1839, when his pardon document was ready fr co llection, he would have attained the considerable age of sixty four, circumstantial evidence suggests that he was then alive in the Colony for on the butt of his Certificate of Freedom, dated 18 December 1827 is the annotation: 'Torn up on his r ecieving a Royal Pardon dated 21st July 1835.'
Thomas McFarlane was born in Glasgow and followed the weaving trade, but apparently he moved to Condorrat for he was residing there with his family in 1820, when he was sentenced to transportation for life because of his involvement in the uris ing. He had a sallow complexion, brown to grey hair and grey eyes.
McFarlane was one of three men too seriously wounded to be moved immediately with the other prisoners from Stirling Castle to Edinburgh Castle. He was not transferred until 28 April so it could well be that it was during the intervening three weks , whilst he was so ill, that his wife took meals to him at the Castle, and even again on his return there, which incident was told by his great grand daughter to her relatives.
In two accounts of events at Bonnymuir Andrew Hardie referred to an old man. As Hardie himself was only twenty six years of age at the time Thomas McFarlane at forty five years might have appeared to him as an old man. This supposition woud b e consistent with Hardie's declaration of 11 April that news of the Cantelon party's decision not to rise was brought by an old man, and he added 'that he does not know the name of this old man, but he afterwards saw him in Stirling Castle wounded . ' As the three men detained at Stirling Castle because of their serious wounds were McFarlane (forty use years), Hart (twenty six years) and Clarkson (twenty one years) it is very likely that the 'old man' was McFarlane.
Hardie's second reference to an old man is in his letter, previously mentioned. When describing the casualties he said, 'Another old man with a frightful-looking wound in his face, so much so that his jaw-bone was seen perfectly distinct'.'s h e had made no mention of an old man earlier in this letter his reference to 'Another old man' must have meant 'another man who was old'; and this man probably was McFarlane.
McFarlane has been traced with three employers between his arrival in the Colony and when the census was taken in 1828.
According to Thomas McCulloch in October 1821 'Thomas McFar lane and Thomas Pink are with the Barrack Master'. This gentleman was Mr. Charles McIntosh, an Ensign in the 73rd Regiment. Less than a year later, in August 1822, McFarlane was asgne d to Mr. Simeon Lord and he was still working for him in 1825, when a muster was taken which shows him as being free by servitude with a sentence of only seven years. This information is incorrect but he is positively identified by the other deta ils given.
When the census was taken in November 1828 McFarlane was employed as a labourer by Thomas Barker, miller of Sussex Street, Sydney. Mr. Barker was also prominent in civic and church affairs. Although no first name is given for McFarlane in te c ensus and his age does not tally with that in his Certificate of Freedom, details of the ship and year of arrival are correctly shown as Speke (2) 1821, and, as there was no other McFarlane in the ship, the information supplied is sufficient to i dentify the individual as Thomas McFarlane, the Scottish Radical.
There is no evidence that McFarlane's family joined him in New South Wales and descendants believe that he returned to Scotland. One grandson, William Macfarlane, who died in Ayrshire on 1 January 1912, claimed that he was taken by his fathr t o meet his grandfather, Thomas McFarlane, at the Port of Leith on his return from Australia. William MacFarlane's obituary mentions that 'Both Mr. Macfarlane's father and grandfather were hand-loom weavers of the old school, his grandfather, Thom as Mcfarlane, undergoing a period of banishment for his political opinions."
In the 1841 census of Scotland a Thomas McFarlane, a hand loom weaver, aged seventy is recorded in the household of a William McFarlane at Condorrat, Dunbartonshire. Following a very exhaust ive search of records based on this informatione autho rs have established beyond doubt that Thomas McFarlane returned to Condorrat between February 1839 when he collected his pardon document and 7 June 1841 when the census was taken, at which time he was living with his son William and family . His death may have ocurred before 1851 for his name does not appear in the census of that year. It seems highly improbable that his date of death will ever be established as unfortunately the burial records of the graveyard at Cumbern auld Church, where he would have been buried, were destroyed in a fire towards the end of the nineteenth century.
Thomas McFarlane and his wife Elizabeth Baird are known to have had at least seven children. The first three were born at Kilsyth in the County of Stirling; their next three children, all sons, were born at Glasgow. Subsequently the famiy mov ed to Condorrat where another son was born in 1809 and they were still there at the time of the uprising in 1820.
His wife Elizabeth apparently died before he returned from Australia, for her name was not in the first census taken in June 1841.
Thus Thomas McFarlane could well have been one of the r adicals of whom Peter Mackenzie wrote, 'Some of the victims joyously returned some to this their dear native land, free-pardoned men'.
Of Thomas McFarlane's descendants many are in Scotland and England, some in New Zealand and South Africa, but in Australia the authors know of no others besides members of their own family. Alastair Macfarlan, gr eat-great-grandson of Thomas the radical, was born in Inverness, Scotland. Ile had no thought of even visiting Australia until in 1936 he met his Australian wife, Margaret, in Penang where he was accountant of a merchant fir m and she was teaching at the Anglo Chinese Girls' School. He decided to settle in Sydney and some time afterwards, by a strange coincidence, he joined an organization founded by Harold Hastings Deering in 1926. I t was not until several years later after Mr. Deering's death in 1965 that he discovered that he too was descended from a Scottish radical of 1820, namely Thomas McCulloch. The authors have two sons, one daughter and s ix grandchildren.

8 - Condorrat Tenants and Residents Association saw several years of community fundraising bear fruit when a special memorial wall was unveiled to mark the memories of its working class heroes. Divided into three sections, this lovingly crafted pi ece of stonework honours a trio of men whose sacrifices will always be remembered in this former mining village.
They are the Radical Weavers, the early trade unionists whose leader JOHN BAIRD was born in Condorrat and whose house lies a short distance away from this memorial wall. Executed in Stirling on 8th. September 1820 for his role in the uprising, h e is commemorated alongside his comrades JOHN BARR, THOMAS MACFARLANE, WILLIAM SMITH and JOHN ALLAN. The wall also honours local members of the armed forces who gave their lives for their country in conflicts throughout the world; and six Condorra t miners who perished in the Auchengeich Disaster 18th September 1959.
The unveiling of the memorial wall was carried out by PROVOST TOM CURLEY and following this, the memorial dedication was given by a local minister and blessed by a local priest then a minutes silence and the piper's lament. Flowers and wreaths wer e laid firstly by CTRA for all three sections, 1820 Society wreath laid by MARION MCMILLAN, Croy Historical Society and JAMIE HEPBURN MSP laid the Scottish National Party wreath followed by two matching bouquets of red and white roses laid by LIL Y LOVE and ANN BAIN on behalf of the 1820 Society. Also simultaneously, many others including relatives of the miners and war dead laid their own personal floral tributes. The Army Cadets and Royal British Legion Scotland also placed their tribute s. 1820 stalwart, CATHIE BROWN from Paisley laid the 1820 Society posy on the saltire draped over the newly erected 'WEAVERS REST' bench positioned immediately opposite the memorial wall and offering a fine view of the memorial to all who care t o sit awhile with their own thoughts. Speeches from PROVOST CURLEY and JOHN BURKE of CTRA prior to and after the unveiling, alongside a presentation to the Provost and also to the stonemasons, brought the ceremony's formal proceedings to a close . Many photographs were taken and a video recording too, highlighting the importance and significance of three different aspects of working life and their place in our history. A buffet and refreshments was enjoyed afterwards in the nearby CONDORR AT ARMS with many still lingering taking in the scene some hours later. An emotional day for many.

8 - most of the 19 'transportees' remained settled in Australia where, as literate men - unlike the average group of convicts, many of them made significant contributions to the development of the then British colony of New South Wales. Their indi vidual stories are told in a little book by MARGARET and ALASTAIR MACFARLANE, entitled THE SCOTTISH RADICALS - Tried and Transported for Treason in 1820, first published in Australia in 1975 and re-issued in the U.K. (by SPA Books Ltd) in 1981.

Its co-author, ALASTAIR MACFARLANE, was himself a descendant of one of the transported Radicals, namely THOMAS McFARLANE, a Glaswegian by birth - who in 1839, already an old man in his late sixties, returned home to Condorrat in Dunbartonshire. Ac cording to a report in The Stirling Observer on 30 January 1840 McFarlane was subsequently feted by the Airdie Working Men's Association on account not simply of his involvement in the 1820 affair but because of his long association with Radical p olitics which he could trace back to the days of 'MUIR, PALMER and GERALD' of the Friends of the People and the United Scotsmen in the 1790s.
The new plaque in their honour on the Sighthill Monument was the brain-child of ALASTAIR MACFARLANE, the Radical descendant arid coauthor of the only published account of their lives. A native of Inverness, Alastair had himself settled in New Sout h Wales after his marriage in the 1930s, and in his later years following the UK. publication of THE SCOTTISH RADICALS had campaigned by correspondence from his home there for the erection of the new Sighthill plaque. He died, aged 89, in April 19 93, unfortunately without learning that his efforts had finally been successful. In a sense the new plaque is his memorial too.

Alexander 'McFarlane' was born in Coitsville, Ohio where his father An
drew was living on the road near the Poland town line, south of Coitsv ille Center. By 1850 the Andrew 'McFarlane' family had moved into Pola nd near the McKeevers, Struthers and Hoggs. At that time eleven year-o ld Alexander had five sisters an
d one younger brother, John (a four ye ar-old twin with Hannah). His mother Ann had been born in Pennsylvania . By 1860 Alexander 'McFarland' had just married Margaret (nee' Book ) and was living in Irwin, Venango co, Pennsylvania next to his pare nt s who had also moved there. Both he and his father were listed as farm ers, the most common occupation of the time and place.
Alex 'McFarland' had moved by 1870 to Hickory township (P.O. New Castl e), Lawrence co, PA. Here he owned a modest home and was identified a s a 'teamster'. Now he and Margaret had four children; Sarah M. age 8 , Margaret age 6, Julius H. age 4, a nd Clarinda (sic), ie Clarence, bo rn in May, 1870.
Alex 'McFarland' moved his family again by 1880 to West Lackawanna, Me rcer co, PA where he was working in a sawmill along with two boarder s he had taken in. Only two children were living with Alex and Margare t then; Julius H. age 14, and Claren ce E. age ten (now identified a s a male).
Alexander McFarlin was buried in the United Brethren Cemetery in Wes t Middlesex co, Beaver PA. Headstone gives dates; b 19 Mar 1839 an d d 4 Nov 1895. His wife Margaret is also named on headstone but wit h only date of birth as 1838.
No further data found for Alex and Margaret McFarland.

ALEXANDER MCFARLAND/MCFARLIN (b abt 1778 in Ireland died 1833 in Ohio)
(Research by Peter Folsom McFarlin, 2011, revised Dec 2019 )

John and Margery McFarland's oldest son Alexander appears to have immi
grated around 1795 or'96 when he was about age twenty. Alexander sai d he "... came to America about 14 years ago...", in an 1809 affidavi t (*1), and his brother William's arrival is given as "...1796". Thi s is important information, for if thi
s Alexander is truly one of wido w Margery McFarland's sons, as he seems to be, and if we assume that t hey arrived in America together, then it stands that the family spen t about eight years in America, before they, "...came to this townshi p (C oitsville) from Ireland about the year 1804...", as Williams repor ts in 1882 (*2 p 168). Alexander's father John reportedly died "...eas t of the Mountains." (*3)
Alexander's marraige may have taken place in Pennsylvania, during hi s family's time traveling through Pennsylvania to Ohio, since his brid e, Margaret (McClelland?) was born in Pennsylvania. Perhaps this happe ned while he and his family were sta ying in Hopewell (New Bedford), Pe nnsylvania with his mother's Anderson brother . It appears that he wa s married by 1804, as indicated by the age of his first son, John, bor n 1804-1805, in Coitsville, Ohio.
Soon after arriving in the newly formed Coitsville township in Trumbul l county, Ohio, Alexander is taxed there in 1804, as shown on one of t he earliest tax lists. This may indicate that he owned some property t here in 1803. Williams further sta tes "... Alexander settled south o f the center of Coitsville..." (*2 p 168). It's likely that, in Alexan der's 1804 household, he was the oldest male family member, caring fo r his new wife and child, widowed mother and five younger sisters a n d brothers. Land records for Alexander, Margery and the other early Co itsville McFarlands would help greatly as to the locations of the McFa rland family groups. Later, as years passed, each brother or sister w ould marry and resettle elsewher e. His mother Margery apparently late r went to live with her youngest son, James.
Alexander's name further appears on at least the 1806, 1807, 1808 an d 1810 Coitsville Tax Lists. He is the only Alexander McFarland taxe d in Trumbull County from 1800 to at least 1810. Interestingly, each o f the first four tax lists spell his l ast name differently; in '04, it s McFarlain, '06-McFarlin, '07-McFarling and '08-McFarland. These near -phonetic, variant spellings are common for the McFarland family throu ghout the written records and may represent how names were actually 'h e ard' by other people at slightly different times. But all had the 'Mc ' spelling, likely indicating his origin in Ireland.
Alexander "...had seven sons and two daughters, most of whom settled i n this vicinity..." (*2 p 168). Alexander apparently used the traditio nal Scottish naming method for at least his first three children;
-- John after Alexander's father, the 1796 immigrant who died in Penns ylvania
-- William after his wife Margaret's father (a William McClelland?)
-- Alexander after Alexander's father's father?
Apparently Alexander owned the "...McFarlin mill in the south of the t ownship..." (*2 p 171). This was the second (saw?) mill in town. The 1 820 census shows Alexander McFarland with wife, six boys and one girl . Alexander's wife Margaret was bor n in 1781, in Pennsylvania, and ma y have been a sister of the John McClelland who lived just a few mile s further south, in Poland Township in 1820 (see below). In 1830, Alex ander McFarland with wife, five boys and two girls, were shown agai n i n the Coitsville enumeration. During the 1830's, a William McClellan d settled in Coitsville quite next to the Alexander McFarlands, on th e road leading south to Poland. William McClelland bought the 163 acre s from Alexander's brother Jame s McFarland.
Disaster struck their family about March of 1833, when Alexander ".. . was accidently killed by the falling of a tree." (*2 p 168), probabl y while cutting trees for his saw mill. Alexander was about fifty-fiv e when this happened and he may hav e had time, before he died, to prep are his last will and testament. Probate records show, in the settlin g of Alexander's estate in March and April, 1833, that; cash was pai d to sons Alexander jr. and Andrew, while also naming a William McClel l and as "... guardian to James McF and Samuel McF until 21 years; to R obert McF til 14 yrs; to Peggy McF til 12...all children and minor hei rs of Alexr. McFarlane, late of Coitsville. James and Samuel made thei r own choice..." (*4).
No other children were mentioned. It is possible that this guardian (a nd neighbor?) William McClelland, was related to the new widow Margare t. Was he her nephew or a younger brother?
Not sure where Alexander was buried.

Elizabeth (Betsey) Loveland arrived in April of 1799 from Vermont int o the Western Reserve of Connecticut, which soon became Coitsville, Oh io. She was about age nine, and traveled with her siblings and pioneer ing parents, Amos and Jemima (Dicki
nson) Loveland.

Amos Loveland; Revolutionary Soldier, Surveyor, Pioneer and Farmer
There is much found in the records and histories about Elizabeth’s fat her; Amos Loveland which will not be presented here. But, here's som e of his interesting story anyway.
Amos was the third of five boys and eight girls. While living in Glast onbury, Connecticut, on 1 May 1777, he enlisted at age fourteen for th ree years in the CT Continental Line's Seventh Regiment. He took par t in the battle of Germantown, and w as discharged 1 May 1780. Amos ree nlisted 1 July 1780 as a private in the Second CT Regiment and was dis charged again 9 December 1780 (*a). Now just 18 years old and a three- year veteran of the successful American Revolution, he returned to Gl a stonbury. In 1785, at age twenty-two, he married Jemima Dickenson, dau ghter of David and Beriah (Loveland) Dickenson. The couple immediatel y headed for the new opportunities now found in Vermont, made safer fo r settlement by the end of the Re volutionary hostilities. They settle d and started their family in Vershire (and Chelsea?), Vermont, livin g there for thirteen years. He is found there in the first federal dec ennial census of 1790. (He is not found in any federal census in 18 0 0 or 1810 - Ohio’s are not extant).
Early in 1798, at age thirty-five, he went to the Mahoning River valle y of the Connecticut Western Reserve (in the area which later became O hio). There he spent the summer in assisting John Partridge Bissel sur veying the new Connecticut Reserv e lands purchased by the absentee lan d company's owner, Daniel Coit of Connecticut. In the fall of 1798 Mr . Loveland purchased all the lands in that part of Coitsville townshi p on the south side of the Mahoning River; four hundred and twenty-fo u r acres. This sale was formalized in the land records five years late r (*b). Amos returned to Vermont in the fall of 1798, settled his affa irs there, and “ December, 1798, with his wife and six children h e left Chelsea for his new home.. ." (*c). In two sleighs, (loaded wit h bedding, farming utensils, and furniture) drawn by four horses, thei r family of eight 'headed West' across New York and Pennsylvania towar ds their new homestead. It is possible that they may have stopped i n t o visit or stay with their (cousins), also named Amos Loveland just ea st of the Hudson river in the town of Greenbush (now Sand Lake), Renss elear co, New York.
They sleighed across the frozen Susquehanna River at Whitestone, and , since the snow was now melting, Amos exchanged his sleighs for a wag on and continued on. After completing the hard, four-month journey t o the Mahoning on 4 April 1799, they o ccupied the log cabin near the r iver, which he had erected for their use the year before. One half wa s floored with 'puncheons'; split logs dressed out with an axe, the ot her half remained earthen.
The Lovelands; Amos 37, Jemima 37, Elizur 13, Milly 12, Elizabeth 8, L ucina 7, Amos jr 5, and another son (?) were all shown in the Vershir e census of 1790. They became the first permanent settlers of Coitsvil le. During the first year, the fami ly depended largely on hunting an d some supplies from neighboring settlements. Amos cleared his farm an d resided there with various sons, daughters and their families unti l his death in 1851.
Just after Christmas, 1851, Amos died, probably at home, age 89. He wa s buried in the family cemetery on his farm, the land he'd long ago pl anned to live on after first seeing it during his pioneering survey o f 1798.

However, Elizabeth did all her traveling when a child, for she staye d continuously in the town after reaching Coitsville, except to live w ith her daughter Lavinia (McFarland) Harris just a few miles away in Y oungstown the last few years of he r life.
In 1812, at age twenty-two, Elizabeth married William McFarland, ten y ears older (*1). She moved only a few miles away, still in Coitsville , to his farmstead on the Hazleton Road. They appear to have had thre e boys and three girls by 1820, poss ibly two of the children were twin s, since six single birth children in eight years would be unusual, ev en in those times. The 1830 census shows William and Elizabeth, with e leven children. It is reported that she, "...became the mother of s i x sons and six daughters..." (*2 p 165).
The 1850 census lists her birthplace as Vermont, and confirms that sh e is ten years younger than her husband, William. The McFarland childr en still living at their home are; Amos, (age 38, b Ohio), Jemima, (ag e 30, b Ohio), Candace, (age 20 , b Ohio), Lovina, (age 17, b Ohio, i n school), and Annetta, (age 8, b Ohio, in school). Ten years later, i n 1860, she is a widow, living next door to her son Anderson and his f amily. Elizabeth McFarland is head of her own small household, wit h so n, Amos, age 48 ("idiotic"), and daughter Annetta J, age 18 (school te acher, and attending school).
In 1870, at age 80, she still maintains her own home very nearby to so n Anderson, while living with son Amos and youngest daughter Lucinia ( Lavinia) McFarland, age 35, who is keeping house with Elizabeth. By 18 80, Elizabeth and Amos were boardi ng with her daughter Lavinia who ha d now married Hamilton Harris (about 1875). He had been widowed by th e death of Lavinia's sister Candace in August of 1874, and this arrang ement may have been a marriage of 'convenience' for all concerned.

The following is quoted entirely from: Historical Collections of Mahon ing Valley, Youngstown, Ohio, May, 1876, pp 510-512.

"In December, 1804, an elderly gentleman came to this town (Youngstown , ed.) representing that he wished to contract for squared white-oak t imber and staves, the timber to be used for ship-building, and the sta ves to be taken to the Madeira Isl ands for wine casks. He was referre d to Isaac Powers, of this township, and Amos Loveland, of Coitsvill e Township, as men that could furnish what he wanted. He called upon t hem, and made a bargain, which they had to go to Poland to have writt e n. The contract was drawn at the house of Jonathan Fowler, and writte n either by him or Terhand Kirtland. The sizes and lengths of the timb ers were all specified. It was all large timber.
The contract for the timber was made with Isaac Powers, and the stave s with Amos Loveland. Mr. Dean was evidently a man that understood hi s business, and capable of doing a sharp bargain, as he succeeded in g etting Mr. Powers into a contract en tirely in his own favor. Mr. Power s, although being a good mechanic in timber, never had the experienc e of the cost of furnishing timber of such sizes and weight, and conse quently got but little to pay the scant wages due his workmen and fo r h is own time and labor. He, however, furnished the timbers as calle d for by the contract. Mr. Loveland's part of the bargain will be unde rstood by giving it in the words of his daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth M'Far land, who is now living in Coitsvill e Township, and is eighty-five yea rs of age. She says:"
'My recollection of the Dean rafts is that they were three in number , and were got up about the year 1803 or 1804. They were composed of s quared timbers hewed out, and of large air-tight casks. My father, Amo s Loveland, furnished all the timbe r for the casks, and helped to tak e it out. He also furnished the trees standing in the woods from whic h the square timber was made. He was not under contract for building t he casks or for any other part of the labor of constructing. He, howe v er, had the contract to furnish the staves dressed. The staves were go t out dressed and finished, and then set up for the wine casks, and af terward knocked down, that is, taken apart, and the staves destined fo r each cask bunched or bundled , each bundle being secured by a small h oop at each end. John Moore, father of Wm. 0. Moore of the Sarah J. St ewart tragedy, James Walker, ____ Holmes, with the help of my father , were the coopers who split them out (the staves) in the Summer , se t them up and built the casks in the Fall and Winter. The casks were i ntended to buoy up the rafts. We furnished the boarding and lodging an d shop for these coopers. We were often hard put to furnish the tabl e with the necessary substantia ls of life. For meat we often had game ; namely, wild turkey, venison, and occasionally bear meat.
'Mr Powers took out all the timber and built the rafts. It took abou t one year to get them completed. They were successfully launched in t he Mahoning River in Coitsville Township at the south end of the prese nt Lawrence Railroad Bridge at the S pring flood in 1806. The river wa s swollen to its highest water mark, and most of the inhabitants of th e surrounding neighborhood were there to see them off. An old gentlema n, Mr. Dean, contracted for the building and launching of them. He w a s not here often, but his nephew, James Dean, bossed the job. He, Jam es, fell out of a canoe between this and Beaver Falls. He with two me n were traveling in the canoe. The others went ashore to sleep, leavin g Mr. Dean in the canoe to watc h their trunks and outfit. The next mor ning, he was found at the bottom of the river, wrapped in his blanket , dead. The rafts went to pieces on the falls of Beaver on account o f insufficient depth of water to float them over.'
‘The timbers of the rafts were lost, but most of the staves were gathe red, loaded in flat-boats, and taken to New Orleans. These rafts wer e about one hundred feet in length, and about twenty-five feet wide. T he casks for buoys or floats were ma de air-tight, and frames or yoke s were made, in which they were confined. Upon this frame or yoke th e raft timbers were placed. The casks were about four feet in diamete r and six feet in length, and made of very heavy staves, and well boun d wi th hoops. The exact number to each raft is not known, but we are l ed to believe it was twenty-four. They were framed in the timbers in p airs, to move endways on the water. On the top of the rafts were pile d the staves.
‘Jonathan Fowler, the first settler of Poland Township, was drowned a t that time at Hardscrabble in the Beaver River. He was accompanying t he party that was running the rafts. While passing the rapids at tha t place, the canoe in which he was ri ding struck a rock and upset, an d he was lost. The others that were in the canoe at that time were res cued.
‘At the time these rafts were got out, and until after they were gon e and lost, there were no suspicions but what they were intended to b e used for legitimate purposes. It, however, afterward was rumored tha t Dean was a confederate or in the em ploy of Aaron Burr, and it was su pposed and believed by many that they were intended to be used by hi m in his treasonable purposes against the Government. Nothing, however , positive was ever known to the people of this country as to their in te nded destination.
Yours, etc.,
Youngstown, O., December 24, 1875.’

By the time Elizabeth died in June of 1881, she had been "...a residen t of the Western Reserve longer than any other person, having reside d continuously in the Mahoning valley over eighty-two years..." (* 2 p 165). She was buried near her husban d in the Pioneer Methodist Cem etery in Coitsville Center, Ohio.

HENRY MCFARLIN (ca1822 - 1870) Indiana Justice of the peace
(Research by Peter Folsom McFarlin - June 2019)

Henry McFarlin, son of Andrew and Jane (Dug? Day?) McFarland/McFarli
n moved from Coitsville, Ohio to Indiana with his parents and sibling s about 1845.
In 1860 Henry was a justice of the peace in Plymouth, Indiana living w ith his widow mother Jane (Dug? Day?) McFarlin, and sister Mary A Mc F a 28 (she married in 1860), and sister Elvira McF a 25 (she marrie d in 1867).
Henry was cutting trees for logs on Jan 27th of 1870 with other men an d was killed by a tree falling against another which hit his head. Hi s mother Jane (Dug? Day?) McFarlin presented a claim on his estate fo r payment of an 1860 debt of $85 plu
s 2% interest. She had loaned hi m the money (gold) to pay off a mortgage on land he owned. This woma n was most likely his mother and not his sister Jane (McFarlin) Metcal f who had married in 1847. Henry's sister Elvira McDuffie was asminist rat rix of his estate.
Henry McFarlin was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Plymouth, Indiana. H e apparently did not marry or have children.
