King Edward VII Police (Scotland) Medal 1903 to the Fire Brigade, the Army & St Andrew's Ambulance Association

King Edward VII Police (Scotland) Medal 1903 to the Fire Brigade, the Army  & St Andrew’s Ambulance Association

I know for certain that members of the City of Glasgow Fire brigade were awarded medals for being on duty for the Royal Visit to Glasgow in 1903.

 

It is equally certain that members of the St Andrew’s Ambulance Association and members of the Volunteer Army Medical Services as well as other Volunteer Regiments acted as stretcher bearers during the visits to Edinburgh and Glasgow.


I am still gathering the evidence to confirm the above.


If you have medals to Fire Brigade, the Army or St Andrew’s Ambulance Association, it would be very useful to know the details impressed on the rim to collate a medal roll for the medal.


Please contact the site via enquiries@scottishpolicemedals.co.uk. Thank you.

Fireman William Campbell

 

Unfortunately, there were two Fireman William Campbells’ in the City of Glasgow Fire Brigade in 1903!

The eldest possible candidate, William Campbell (56) was born in Kilbirnie in Ayrshire on 26 March 1847 and lived in Cranston Street in Anderston. He and his wife Martha, were still there in 1911 when he was 64 and still employed by the Fire Brigade.

 

Some of his postings were as follows:

 

Dates

Fire station

1876 - 1886

Bridgeton Fire Station

1886 - 1894

Western Fire Station

1894 until Retirement

Not known

 

This William Campbell died on 28 March 1931 in Largs in Ayrshire, aged 84. Martha had pre-deceased him.

The younger William Campbell (27) was born in Glasgow and lived in Springburn Road, Glasgow.

Before 1911, he and his wife Christina emigrated first to Montreal in Canada and later to Cochise, Arizona, United States of America. They were still there in the US Census of 1920.

It is possible that the elder William Campbell was awarded a City of Glasgow Fire Brigade Long Service medal too since he was also a Fireman in Glasgow in 1881?



Any information you can provide will be gratefully received. Thank you.

Introduction to George Curdie, born 1859 in Kilmarnock

 

George Curdie, born 29 April, 1859 in Kilmarnock in the County of Ayr was the son of James Curdie, a House Painter, born around 1833, himself the son of George Curdie born in Kilmarnock around 1793 who with his wife, Margaret Lymburn or Curdie, had a least seven children.

 

James married Martha Wildin in Kilmarnock in 1857 and later that year, their first child George (b.1857) was born. Unfortunately, George died later in 1857.

 

The couple had their second child in 1859 and again, named him George (b.1859) after his paternal grand-father, George (b.1793). This child was subsequently awarded the above medals in his later life.

 

George Curdie (b.1793) was sometime a Hand Loom weaver and later a Victualler and Grocer. He married Margaret Lymburn or Curdie in 1821 at Kilmarnock.

 

His first son James was born in 1824 and a second named James, again around 1833. James was the name of Margaret Lymburn’s father so it is likely that after their first child died, the couple named another child after its maternal grand-father. Please see the Census of Scotland details below.

 

Between the Census of 1871 and July, 1875, James (b.1824) and Martha moved to live in the Burgh of Govan near Glasgow.

 

Sometime before 1880, George Curdie (b.1859) joined the 5th Volunteer Battalion of the Highland Light Infantry in Glasgow.

 

Between 1891 and 1901, George (b.1859) ceased being a House Painter and became an Ambulance Attendant with the St Andrew’s Ambulance Association since that is the occupation listed in both Census’ from 1901 onwards. His brother, Charles Wildin Curdie, born 1861 in Kilmarnock, was also a St Andrew’s Ambulance Attendant in Glasgow.

 

George Curdie (b.1895) died in Glasgow in 1936. He never married.

 

What follows is the chronological record of his parents, grandparents, brothers and some other relatives. The spelling of some of the names and the ages of the family members do not always agree from year to year but I have listed them as they are recorded in official documents on each separate occasion.

 

Church Registers, Old Parish Registers, Kilmarnock in the County of Ayr, 1821

 

The Church of Scotland Parish Records of Marriages in Kilmarnock for the year 1821 record that on “26 January, 1821, George Curdy and Margaret Lymburn both Kilmarnock, after Proclamation were married.”

 

This was the marriage of George Curdie’s grand-parents. Curdy is spelled with a ‘y’ but in later documents, becomes ‘Curdie’.

 

Church Registers, Old Parish Registers, Kilmarnock in the County of Ayr, 1824

 

The Church of Scotland Parish Records in Kilmarnock for the year 1824 record that “James, 2nd child of George Curdie, Weaver and Margaret Lymburn, spouses, born February, 27th, 1824.”

 

This created a puzzle; because, on his marriage certificate in 1857, James Curdie’s age is given as “24”. In the Census of 1841, his age is given as ‘8’ which mean he was born around 1833.

 

I think the 1824 birth is that of the ‘first’ James Curdie (b.1824). The 1833 birth is that of George Curdie’s (b.1859) father James. According to all other Registrar documents, his father was born in or around 1833.

 

 

Church Registers, Old Parish Registers, Girthon in the County of Kirkcudbrightshire, 1836

 

The Church of Scotland records for the Parish of Girthon in the County of Kirkcudbrightshire in the year of 1836 show that “Martha, lawful daughter of Charles Wildin, Under Game Keeper & Jane Smith, Porter Lodge, born 6th August and Baptised 16th October, 1836.”

 

This is the birth of George Curdie’s mother Martha. Her age in 1857 is apparently correctly shown as “21”.

 

Census of Scotland, 1841

 

Recorded living at Park Street in Kilmarnock in the Census of Scotland, 1841 were George Curdie (b.1793), his wife Margaret and their family.

 

In 1841, only the County of Birth was confirmed. It is likely that all listed were born in Kilmarnock but it is not recorded in the Census.

 

So far, I have only found the births of the children, John, 1st, James, 2nd and George 4th. Margaret, according to her Death Certificate, was born 1826 although, using the Census of 1841, it was around 1831.

 

If James was indeed, the 2nd child born in 1824, then by 1841 he would have been 17 years old rather than 8.

 

Although I have not yet found a record, I believe the first ‘James’ born to the couple died between 1824 and 1833 and they then named a later child born in 1833 by the same name (after Margaret’s father, James Lymburn). This was a common practice in Scotland at that time and indeed, it was followed in 1859 by James, the father of ‘George Curdie’ born in 1859, the subject of this article:

I have not, so far, found her husband in the Census. I have used the spelling in the Census which might be a mis-transcription by Ancestry.

 

Jean Wildin’s place of birth is recorded in this Census as Ayrshire but she was actually born in Gatehouse of Fleet in Kirkcudbrightshire. Please see above:

For the sake of accuracy, I have copied the details from the Census form but there are discrepancies in the ages of George and Margaret ages from past Census’ although the children’s seem correct:

Church Registers, Old Parish Registers, Kilmarnock in the County of Ayr, 1851

 

The following is an extract from the Church of Scotland Kilmarnock Parish Register of Marriages in the year 1851. I believe it concerns James Curdie’s elder brother and his wife.

 

“Kilmarnock, 19 December, 1851, George Curdie, (b.1828) in Robertson Place and Jane McDonald in East Netherton after proclamation the extract was called for in order to marriage.”

The groom was James Curdie, (24), a Painter and Batchelor and the bride was Martha Wildin, (21), Spinster, both of whom lived at Robertson Place, Kilmarnock.

 

James’ parents were George Curdie, a Victualler and his mother, Margaret Lymburn. Martha’s parents were Charles Wildin, a Game Keeper and Jane Smith.

On 29 April, 1859, at 24 Princes Street, Kilmarnock, George Curdie, the son of James Curdie, a House Painter and Martha Wilden or Curdie was born. His father registered the birth.

 

I believe that like his father before him, James chose to name his second child after his own father George, and also after his first son who had died in 1857.

There were other members of the Curdie living in Glasgow at the time and it is possible James was there looking for somewhere to live as by the 1875, he, Martha and the family were living in Govan permanently:

Volunteer Force Long Service Medal

 

This medal in silver was awarded for 20 years’ service in the ranks of the Volunteer Force.

 

Army Order number 215, Page 13, issued in October 1900 recorded the award of the Volunteer Long Service Medal (1895 – 1930 –British Issue) to “4054, Serjeant G. Curdie, Highland Light Infantry, 5th Volunteer Battalion, Scottish District.”

 

George Curdie was awarded this medal in October, 1900 so it is possible his service in the 5th (Volunteer) Battalion of the Highland Light Infantry dated from at least 1880, possibly from the time he moved to Glasgow from Kilmarnock.

 

The Scotsman newspaper, Tuesday, 16 October, 1900, Page 7

 

"From the War Office yesterday was issued a list of officers, non-commissioned officers and men of the Volunteer Force who have been awarded the Volunteer long service medal. The following are included: -

 

Among the names is "5th V.B.Highland Light Infantry, 4054, Segeant G. Curdie." 

 

The full list is published above and can be seen by clicking on the link "The Scotsman, 16 October, 1900" here.

Royal Visit of King Edward VII to Scotland, 1903

 

It was in this year that George Curdie was awarded the King Edward VII Police (Scotland) Medal, 1903, most likely for his services as an Ambulance officer with the St Andrew’s Ambulance Association (St A. A. A.) in either Glasgow or Edinburgh for the Royal Visit.

 

It is also possible that he was still serving with the 5th (Volunteer) Battalion Highland Light Infantry and served as a stretcher bearer for the Royal Visits. I hope to confirm which from a search of the St A. A.A. archives sometime in the future.
