I remember Jimmy and Kathy Ferguson having a shop in jemimaville. Not sure if it was maybe the first building shown in picture or the second or possibly it was further back down street going out towards poynzfield. Also Jimmy Scotts Garage which I beleive is still running ??

Amendment to my previous comment:
My grandmother Elizabeth Macdonald born 1871 in Jemimaville to William and Alexandrina Urquhart(nee Munro) sadly passed away on 1st January 1922 and not 1913 as previously stated. Information from the General Register of Scotland.

Does anyone know if John McIntosh still owned one of these shops in Jemimaville in 1908. His Stepmother was Robertina Urquhart and I am Robertina's Great, great Granddaughter living in New Zealand

Do you remember the pumps where we all got our water until the seventies? There were three in all on the opposite site of the road to the shops. We had a little trolley and a plastic water carrier shaped like a milk churn with a plug and chain in the neck. Needless to say baths were few and far between.

I grew up in Jemimaville and I dont remember there being THREE water pumps in the village there was one at the east end towards the garage and the other one was at what was reffered to as the west end not far from the shop I never ever saw a third

Must be my mind playing tricks - I thought there was one in the middle. We always used the west end one.
Added by Gillie Lomax on 06 September 2009
Yes the second one was in the middle but there wasn't one at the Udale Pillars, remember them?
Added by Mary Mackay now Tomlinson Harrison on 07 September 2009
Udale pillars, were they the gates opposite Jimmy Scott's garage? Do you remember our famous authoress Elizabeth Cameron/Jane Duncan who lived in the village? She wrote the "My friend....." series.

I just found information that my gr uncle worked as a baker in a baking firm in the 1880s in Jamimaville. I realize that is a long time ago but does anyone have any information on the bakery? His name was John Munro and his family was in Saltburn.
