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.
