I am seeking information about anyone who knew my mother Helen Ferrie (later Reid) who lived in Gairdoch St Bainsford up until 1949/50, we then moved to Thornbridge Rd Falkirk.
My mother was married to Danny Ferrie who died of TB around 1945, his family lived in the Lauriston area.
I am particularly interested in contacting anyone who has links or information to that family lineage to do some research on Danny and my mother. Any assistance no matter how small would be greatly appreciated.
East Stirlingshire FC and Canal Bank, Bainsford
I am currently doing some research into the origins of East Stirlingshire FC (originally called Britannia). I am aware that they started off in Bainsford in 1880. A large number of the initial team lived in or around Canal Bank, Bainsford. However, I am unable to pinpoint this location from maps of the time. I believe that Canal Bank made have been just to the East of Bainsford bridge (not sure on which side of the canal) and it may just have been houses that either Falkirk Iron Works or Castle Laurie Iron Works put up for their workers. I am also interesting in finding out the exact location of the Burnhouse area of Falkirk/Bainsford in 1880.
