red mail Andersons of Knockderry, Cove, and Auchengower, Cove
Knockderry House, now Knockderry House Hotel. The current owners tell me that an Anderson descendant visited them in about 2004 & gave them photos which are now on the hotel website. I would love to make contact with him. The first owner was David Anderson (1793-1879). His wife was Anne Blyth, sister of my great-greatgrandfather. He bought (or built) Knockderry House in 1846 as a summer residence. His main residence was in Glasgow. His son, John Anderson (1827-1911), inherited Knockderry in 1879 & extended it in 1897. His main residence was in Park Circus, Glasgow. 1881 census - 3 children of John Anderson & Jessie Harvie were at Knockderry, with 2 servants, while their parents were at 3 Park Circus. He had two sons, David Blyth Anderson (1872-1944) and A (Alexander) Harvie Anderson (1873-1939). I'm fairly sure DBA was the elder brother, and I don't know how he ended up at Auchengower rather than Knockderry. A. Harvie Anderson and some of his seven sisters lived at Knockderry - by 1904 he was listed at this address. He is in telephone directories to 1938. The Misses Anderson were still there in 1940. Ida Katherine Anderson & Norah V Anderson both had some art exhibited (several mentions on the web). I am also interested to know about Auchengower (built in 1850?) My greatgrandfather Blyth & his family spent 6 months there in 1895 and again in 1896, but I don't know who owned it then. David Blyth Anderson was living there by 1926. Any information would be very welcome, thankyou.
