1. ROBERT1 COUPERTHWAITE was born 1785 in England, and died 14 Jul 1847 in Kirkoswald, Ayrshire. He married MARY CALDERWOOD4 25 Apr 1812 in Barr - by - Girvan, Ayrshire, daughter of JOHN CALDERWOOD and MARY MCILVEEN. She was born 21 Dec 1794 in Lanark, Lanarkshire, Scotland4, and died 17 Jul 1882 in Kirkoswald, Ayrshire4.

Notes for ROBERT COUPERTHWAITE:

The story starts with the marriage in 1812 of Robert Cowperthwaite and Mary Calderwood on April 25th at Barr - by - Girvan. Between 1813 and 1823 six of their children where baptised at Barr - by - Girvan accordinng to the parish registers and these were John, Agnes, Helen (shown as a son), William, Alexanderina and Robert. The first four show the family living in ‘Bridgend’ at Barr - by - Girvan which was a house in Barr village where Robert were a Molecatcher. The family had moved to be living in ‘Balbegg’ of North Balloch, Barr - by - Girvan parish when Alexanderina and Robert were born. This has not been traced up to now.

 

Sometime after Robert’s birth and November 1825 the family had moved to Kirkmichael and were living in ‘Ladymoor’ again has not been located. Three children Thomas, Mary and Lillias were all born here with entries in the Kirkmichael Parish Record. The last named in 1829 December. Here again Robert were shown as a molecather.

The next two children Janet and Sarah were born 1832 and 1834 respectively at Dailly. Both entries are in the parish records but no other details are shown.

The rest of the children starting with Peter in 1836 were born in Kirkoswald, with Robert shown as a Farmer and the family living in ‘Lagderry’ a croft I have located and the remains of the farm house photographed. The Kirk Session Records show in August 1836 amongst the Young Communicants my ancestor William Couperwhaite Lagdarry and his sister Agnes Cowperwhaite.

The family grave is located at Barr - by - Girvan.

D. E. COUPERTHWAITE

Cash Drapery Stores

54, High Street, Maybole

This business has been established about a year, and has made splendid progress for the time that it has been

open. Mr Couperthwaite is also proprietor of the Square Drapery and Clothing House, Cumnock, and each of

the shops are prosperous and thoroughly well patronised by the public. The Maybole premises comprise a

fine single-fronted shop fully 120 to 130 feet in depth, and well fitted and supplied with counters, shelvings,

show-cases, and other conveniences for displaying the very well-selected and comprehensive stck which is

held for the trade. Here may be seen a range of goods of standard value and of every variety in fancy dress

materials, cloths of every description, fine dress tweeds, serges, merinos, cashmeres, cotton and flannel

goods. In mantles, jackets, and costumes Mr. Couperthwaite displays a very great selection, while he does

also first-class dressmaking and tailoring work, employing only experienced hands in each department. The

house is established to retail all kinds of drapery, clothing, millinery, etc, for cash; and buying his goods in

considerable quantities direct from the large wholesale establishments, Mr Couperthwaite is enabled to pro-

vide the best and latest patterns of the most suitable goods at very low prices, giving his customers the benefit

of the narrow profits which cash payments enable him to offer. He proposes to increase the premises by tak-

ing over the shop adjoining and when he is able to do so will have the largest and most important drapery

establishment in the plave. He is doing a growing trade with the best people in the town and district, and has

proved to the satisfaction of the public that he is a thoughly capable, honourable and reliable man of busi-

ness.

N.B.- Since our representative visited Maybole Mr Couperthwaite has opened the adjoining shop as a La-

dies' and Children's Emporium of Fashions, in which he is now showing a most select stock of millenery,

underclothing, and ladies' and children's made up goods of every description at the keenest cash prices. We

understand that Mr. Couperthwaite aims at keeping the trade of the town and district from going to other

centres, by giving all the advantages of city shops to buyers at his establishment.

Notes for ELIZABETH HELEN EAGLESHAM:

Minnesota Thursday May 13th 1943

Celebrates 88th Birthday

Mrs Elizabeth Couperthwaite celebrated her 88th birthday aniversary May 2 at the home of her grandaughter, Mrs Russel Tufts, where she redides.

Mrs Couperthwaite was born May 2, 1855 in Stewarton, Scotland. She had one own sister and several half brothers and sisters. The own sister is still living in Scotland and recently she and her husband celebrated their 60th Wedding aniversary.

The subject of this sketch is the mother of 10 children, 6 sons and 4 daughters. 5 of whom are living. Those living are: Mrs Elizabeth Blair, mother of Mrs Tufts; the eldest daughter, Patricia and one son living in Scotland; one son John, has his home in South Africa and the 5th member of the family James is of Painesville, Ohio. Mr. Couperthwaite died in 1917. There are 13 gran children, 9 great grand children and one great great grand child whose father was killed while serving in the R.A.F. before the babys birth.

Five of the grand children are serving with the Allies in the present war. One grandson is a captain in the Signal Corps of the Engineer Dept. of the British 8th Army, spent 7 years in Egypt and travelled across the desert with the 8th Army under George Montgomery to North Africa. His home is in England. One grandson is in the British Navy, was on the H.M.S. Hood when it was sunk by a torpedo. He was rescued. One grandson is a U.S.A. Aviation Cadet and training in Texas. Another grand son is training in the Engineer Corps in South Africa. A grand daughter is serving with the A.T.S. in Scotland. The A.T.S. is an organization similar to the W.A.A.C.'s in our country. Thus we can understand that this elderly lady is much interested in war news and is anxiously awaiting good news and final victory.

Twenty years ago Mrs Couperthwaite came to the U.S.A. remaining five years before returning to Scotland. Ten years later she again travelled across the ocean coming back with her daughter, Mrs Blair, who made a visit to her native land. That was five years ago and owing to the war she has not returned to her home. Considering herself an evacuee from the waring countries. Mrs Couperthwaite is possessed of a pleasing and friendly disposition, loves to visit, recounts interesting stories of her girlhood and later experiences and extends a warm welcome to callers in the gracious manner of her homeland.

When the writer called at the Tufts residence she was busy knitting which is one of her favourite pastimes. The hour spent during the visit was a delightful interlude on a busy day and will remain with us a pleasant memory.
