John Waugh was my great grandfather. He
is seated in the photograph on the left. (no idea of the
names of the other men). He joined the Royal Scots
Fusiliers in 1910 and was discharged in 1917 after
losing a leg. He was born in November 1892 at Welltrees
Square, Maybole. His brothers and sisters were born in
various parts of Maybole (Coral Glen, Weavers Vennel,
Welltrees Street, Kirkport). They seem to have moved
about a lot!
I am trying to find any information on
the Waugh family. My great grandfather John Waugh shown
in the photo married Annie Byrnes who was born in 1892
and died in 1973. They had 2 children Edward and Mary.
They eventually moved to Glenluce. My great great
grandfather was William Waugh 1861 - 1943, who married
Agnes Scott 1859 - 1930. They had 8 children that I know
William 1883 - ?
Isabella 1888 - ?
David 1891 - 1916
John 1892-1972 (seated in photo)
Agnes 1895 - 1902
Janet 1897 - ?
My gt,gt,gt grandfather was Samuel Waugh
1845 - 1908. He married Isabella Hamilton 1840 - 1927. I
believe they had 8 children, but am not sure if these
are correct. My 4xgt grandfather was also Samuel Waugh
1799 - 1871. The whole family were shoemakers and were
all born in Maybole. Any information or help would be
