MBM 1984:

William McLellan II. Born 2Jul1866. Married Catherine Murray Nice.

William had two sons Murray and Menzies, and was a jeweller in Edinburgh, at Chamber Street, near the Bridge, inheriting the business from Uncle Kirkwood. He lived at Morningside, a very select district of Edinburgh. I remember visiting there with my Mother and playing with my two cousins, who went to Merchiston Castle School. I am reputed to have boxed the ears of one of them.

Murray went to the Army and was married several times, once to a Mackay. Menzies became a G.P. and practised in Woking. They were all rather superb persons who made us feel we were below their station in life.
