    Notes 

    • John GARTSHORE died on the 19 AUG 1873 at 12 Shaftesbury Avenue, Glasgow. He
      was described, in his death entry as an iron founder aged sixty three, married
      to Margaret MOIR, and the son of Alexander GARTSHORE, farmer, and Marion STEEL,
      both deceased. The information for this death entry was given (to the
      Registrar) by his brother, Alexander GARTSHORE, Maryburgh, by Airdrie.
      In the 1871 Census for New Monkland (for Maryburgh) was found: Alexander
      GARTSHORE, head of house, unmarried, 60, flax miller, landowner and farmer of
      thirty acres arable, born in New Monkland; Jane GARTSHORE, his sister,
      unmarried, aged fifty, born in New Monkland. In the old parochial registers of
      New Monkland: "John GARTSHORE lawful son of Alexander GARTSHORE of Maryburgh
      and Marrion STEEL was born the 8th and baptized the 25th November 1810. Other
      children to the same couple were: John, Janet, Alexander, Mary, and Jean.

      John Gartshore was a manufacturer born 8 November 1810 at New Monckland,
      Lanarkshire, Scotland; married Mary Mitchell 7 March 1834 and Margaret Moir
      August 1836. They had four sons and two daughters; he died 19 August 1873 in
      Glasgow.

      John Gartshore was the son of Alexander Gartshore and Marion Steel. Little is
      known of his early life except that he trained as a millwight before going to
      Canada about 1833, apparently to the Toronto area. He married his first wife
      ther in 1834. They moved to Niagara on the Lake, where she died the following
      year. Gartshore then moved to Fergus where he and John Mitchell, possibly a
      relative of his wife, operated a flour mill built by James Webster. The first
      millers in Fergus, they ran the business until the mill burned in January 1837.
      Having remarried in 1836 to Margaret Moir, a Scottish girl from Bon Accord near
      Alora, Gartshore moved with his family to Springfield on the Credit River. When
      the rebellion broke out in 1837, he joined a troop of militia and with them
      went to Dundas.

      Gartshore liked the Dundas area, and in 1838 he established the Gartshore
      Foundry on Hatt Street in partnership with James Bell Ewart. The ironworks
      burned in 1846 but was rebuilt on a larger scale. The firm became pioneers of
      heavy industry, earning a reputation as an important training centre for
      foundary journeymen.
