Galston Ayrshire 1825-1850
I am wanting to find resources that will help me complete a paper about Robert HAMILTON, born at Middlethird in 1821. I am looking for articles, chapters etc describing Galston and the surrounding area. I have already looked at resources found by using Google, Genuki, ScotlandsPlaces etc. What sort of town was Galston and what was life like there? Thanks. Noel
