When researching my family tree I came across the photo above of
Kirkmichael Primary school and to my surprise my Father Randle also
Uncle George and Aunt Lily are it. My Grandfather James Milne was butler
at Cloncaird Castle. His wife was Janet. They had three other children
on the 1911 census. Chrissie aged 14, William 13 and Jessie 4. Randle
and Lily were born at Moniaive and Jessie at Kirkmichael. I would be
delighted to hear from anyone with more information or photographs, or
who could put me in touch with anyone likely to know anything about the
Milne family. Thanking you in anticipation, Alistair Milne.

use the Kirkmichael and Maybole sites a lot as my Mother was born and
brought up in Kirkmichael and I had an aunt who lived in Maybole and I
went there for my holidays many moons ago. In the school photo on the
second row we have Jessie Caldwell, Tom Caldwell and Mary Caldwell who is
my aunt Mary Caldwell. She was born in Kirkmichael in 1899 so would be
about 11 in the photo. She was Dux of Kirkmichael School and went on to,
[I think] be Dux of Carrick Academy. My Grand Father Andrew Caldwell had
the Joinerys business in Kirkmichael. I have been doing my Family Tree and
have used your sites a lot and have found them most helpful. With kind
regards, Margaret [Green]
