Title

Hastie Family History

Description

Megan Hastie has done some superb research into her ancestors who worked at the Woodhead leadmine. Her Hastie family came there near the beginning of the lead mining operations in 1839 and they were joined by many of their friends and relatives, also lead mining families from the Wanlockhead and Leadhills area.

At Woodhead they lived and worked together and in several cases there was intermarriage. After a relatively short period of time the prosperity of the leadmines declined and around 1852 many of the miners and their families left. Some of them together with their relatives from the McDonalds, Mitchell, Whitfield and Bone families went to Dalmellington and other parts of Ayrshire to seek better times in the coalfields or in the ironworks. Other members of the same families chose to emigrate, many to Pittston in Pennsylvania.

Megan has researched many of these families and we are most grateful to her for sharing her work with us.
