||Copy of a letter from Mr. Thomas Tannahill, in Paisley to his relations in America Dated Paisley, 19th, May, 1824 Dear Aunts: Your nephews on this side of the water are longing to hear from you. We would take it very kindly if you would correspond with us and let us know the situation of your families. Although our fathers are no more, we would not wish you to forget us their children. We will not trouble you with anything belonging to this country- but what we think will be more interesting to you, some particulars respecting our own families. I am the only one of your nephews here that recollects our uncles. I assisted one or other of them at times as a draw boy. I have Uncle John's lamp which our father kept as long as he lived, it has stood in the same place, since our uncle went away which is about fifty years ago. Our father died about two years ago aged near eighty seven years. He left two sons, two daughters with their families, with brother Robert's widow and family. Robert died about six years ago. Our uncle James died many years since. Our father and uncle James lived on the greatest friendship, they were respected by all who knew them while they lived, and were regretted when they died. I hope it was so with our uncles Robert and John. I remember they were like one another for the amiableness of their temper, and we are happy to say that our grandfathers and great-grandfathers were noted for their piety; which I hope will be said of their children for many generations. The last account we heard of you was from Mr. Samuel Purden who came over about the end of the war. He informed us of the welfare of your families. He gave us some hopes that some of your sons would pay us a visit, which we would be very glad to realize. With respect to my family I have three sons one of who is married in Glasgow very comfortable, has five children. Another is married in this town -has two children. Our youngest is at home with us. My wife and myself are on the decline of live, we cannot wait here. You will see by our packet of letters how kindly we would take it if any of your would correspond with us. I will add no more but hope this will come safe to hand. I remain your loving nephew. (signed) Thomas Tannahill ||Family F906
||Copy of letter from Mr. James Tannahill (1771-1843) in Paisley to his relations in America. Transcribed by Carmen Johnson.|
James, the third son, was named after his father. The fourth son was Robert, the Paisley Poet who had died in 1810.
Dated Paisley, N. Britain
5th, April 1824
Respected, but unknown friends: The name Tannahill was so rare in Paisley when I was born, that from my earliest recollection I thought it an odd and singular name. There were not any in the town of that name save my father and my uncle Thomas and their families. I was yet very young when I began to take notice of its uncommonness. I noticed when boys were calling over each other's names in the course of their youthful games that Tannahill was often repeated with a sort of muttering as if it sounded strange in their mouths. It was a very common thing in those days for boys to invent nicknames for one another and in many cases that nickname was an alteration or an addition to their proper name. My name being so rare in the place I had my known share of this sort of nickname, namely a play on Tannahill. On this account in course of time I began to feel ashamed to tell it, when it happened I was asked it by a stranger. I was perhaps twenty years of age before this feeling left me.
Previous to about sixty years, the name Tannahill was unknown in Paisley. About that time four brothers, James, Thomas, Robert, and John Tannahill for the sake of their business removed from Kilmarnock to Paisley, a distance of about 22 or 24 miles. In course of time the two elder brothers James and Thomas married and settled in Paisley.
A few years after their marriage the property of the British American attracted a particular attention and from reports of the easiness of making a fortune there and enjoying all the comforts of life many people migrated from this part of the country to America in the hope of bettering their circumstances. Such accounts as these could not fail to draw the attention of the four brothers. At this time I was too young to know anything about it, but I understand it was resolved that the two younger brothers Robert and John being unmarried should go out first and pave the way for the two elder brothers following with their families.
I cannot say that I have any distinct recollection of my uncles Robert and John. At most it is so faint that the recollection of them is but a dream. At the time they went away I could not have been more than three years of age. Anything at that age makes but a faint impression. Still the remembrance of them is one of my earliest impressions. This might arise from having heard of them often spoken of, not only in my father's family, but by members of their old acquaintances who associated with them before they left the country. I am now sensible that when I was very young I got rather proud of my uncles who were in America, because every one spoke of them with respect as being honorable, clever and ingenious men.
Several instances of their ingenuity, are yet in my recollection, particularly a time-piece left with my father which my uncle Robert made with his pen-knife. Some few years before they went to America the weaving business came to be almost the sole trade in Paisley and being in an improving and progressive state, the trade of Paisley resolved to give to the world some expression of their respect for their business, and of their loyalty to their King and Country. Accordingly a weavers procession or parade was chosen to take place on the 4th of June, the birthday of George III. This was to be done with as great show and splendor as possible. Among other parts of ornament proposed was cockade to be worn on the caps of those who joined in the procession. Accordingly the whole town was invited to exert their ingenuity in planning he most appropriate and most elegant cockade. Many specimens were given in for the approbation of the public. But the one planned and executed by my uncle Robert, was the one that pleased best and was adopted, and so long at the parades were kept up in Paisley, this cockade was the universal badge, and though time changes almost every custom, and our parades have been for many years done away, still there are some of these cockades to be found in possession of some people in the town who preserve them as a remembrance of their once loved parade, and of their old acquaintance Robert Tannahill.
Whether my father or my uncle had any serious intention of going to America I cannot say, but by the time I could join in deliberation on such a subject, it ceased to be one in my father's family. But so long as I live the impression made on my young fancy of going to America to see my uncles, will never be eradicated. This must have been caused by conversations on the subject which I frequently heard when I could not take a part in them. It is probable that the war that took place between Britain and the Colonies helped to put a stop to their going to America. Still they felt a brotherly interest for their relations in America and a correspondence by letter was kept up by the brothers which served to promote a feeling of kindness and relationship so long as they lived this feeling (though so far separated) is not yet extinguished in the breasts of their children here, and often when the brothers and cousins meet they talk of the relations they have in America of the name of Tannahill.
Whether it was owing to the singularity of the name of Tannahill, I do not know, but I always felt nearer of kin to a relative of that name than to a relation of the same degree, who was of another name. Although there were originally only four brothers of that name in Paisley and two of them left it, now there are a great many of that name in it, all spring from my father James and my uncle Thomas.
Although a number of their children are dead, and some removed to other places there are perhaps not less than fifty of the name in Paisley. Of six sons and one daughter which my father had, who all came to maturity, there are only my brother Matthew and I who are alive. Two of our brothers, Thomas and Robert died without being married. Our sister, and brothers Hugh and Andrew all married and left children. I have three sons and six daughters all unmarried, my brother Matthew is married and has seven children.
The two families of James and Thomas always lived in the most friendly and agreeable terms. The cousins when they met were like brothers. But there are few of us now, and we are getting up in years. When we chance to meet we frequently talk of our cousins in America, whom we have never seen. We are informed that both of our uncles left families and we often wish that we were somewhat acquainted with them, though but by letter. Not long ago while we were met in a friendly and social way, speaking our friends in American, we thought it a pity that such near relations should be unknown to one another. Three of us agreed to write each a letter to our friends in America and send them all out at the same time, soliciting a correspondence in return with an account of what sons and daughters were alive of our uncles, Robert and John, with any particulars concerning them which they might be pleased to communicate. Should this be complied with we shall be very happy in the correspondence and shall not fail to write you in return and answer any enquiry that may be made with regard to the name of Tannahill.
Yours Respectfully (Signed) James Tannahill

||ELIZABETH MITCHELL URE (1882 - 1898)|
Elizabeth Mitchell Ure was our great grandfather’s youngest daughter. She was born on 28 July 1882, the lastborn child of her parents Thomas Ure and Mary Jane Tannahill Ure (nee Robertson). She had four brothers and two sisters. There was a five year gap between her and her youngest brother, James, who eventually settled in the U.S.A. We don’t know where her name Elizabeth Mitchell came from, but we do know that her brother, John Tannahill (born in 1867) named his firstborn daughter after her in 1905.
Elizabeth Mitchell, her mother and all but her eldest brother Thomas (born in 1866) were living in Kirkdale at 27 Woodbine Street when her father Thomas (born in 1835) died through drowning in Australia in May 1891 Her mother died a few months later in November and Elizabeth was left as an orphan at only nine years old. At that time she was a pupil at Daisy Street Board School, in the next street to Woodbine Street, where she had been admitted in May 1890 when she would have been seven years old.
After the death of her mother Elizabeth Mitchell continued to attend Daisy Street School but went to live at 111 Walton Breck Road in Anfield. There she joined her eldest brother Thomas and his wife Margaret who were both 28 years old, and their daughter Maggie (born 19 August 1890) and son Andrew (born in 1891 and killed in 1917 in the First World War and buried in Belgium at Tyne Cot cemetery). Thomas was a housepainter and perhaps Elizabeth was a help with the two young babies. While Elizabeth was with them their third child Thomas was born on Christmas Day 1892. She was still attending school and sat her Standard IV examination at Daisy Street in April 1893.
But after two years with her brother’s family the situation must have changed for some reason, because in June 1893 Thomas applied to the Liverpool Seaman’s Orphan Institution for Elizabeth to be admitted. We can only think that this was a last resort. Was it all too much for Thomas’s wife to care for her young sister-in-law as well as her own three very young children? Or was some illness putting extra pressure on the family? Or was it difficult to feed an extra person?
It seems that Thomas was her only married brother or sister. John Tannahill, her second eldest brother, did not marry until 1902. He and Andrew (born in 1870), the third brother, were both going to sea. Where else was she to go?
I have had permission to see the application form which Thomas had to submit to the Orphanage. It is in the Orphanage archives held at the Merseyside Maritime Museum. It shows that Thomas had to produce Elizabeth’s birth certificate, their parents’ marriage certificate, list her brothers and sisters and their ages and give reasons for her admission. He also had to give the name and owners of the ship from which their father drowned and he stated that his father, Thomas Ure senior, had sailed from the port of Liverpool for 35 years prior to his drowning. Elizabeth was examined by the orphanage medical officer, and Thomas had to sign that she had been vaccinated against smallpox, had never had fits and was “free from troublesome habits during the night.” The application was supported by Allen Bros and Co. who were shipowners and trustees of the orphanage.
After two months the application for admission was approved and in August 1893 Elizabeth left her brother’s family in Walton Breck Road and her old school for a new life at the orphanage in Newsham Park.
The orphanage had been opened in 1869 in temporary accommodation in Duke Street, but in1874 imposing new purpose-built accommodation in Newsham Park, looking out across the lake, was officially opened. It is a fine Victorian building in a desirable parkland setting. It is now empty and becoming increasingly derelict while some new use is found for it: there is talk of conversion to luxury apartments. When Elizabeth was resident there in the 1890s there were over 300 children and a further 500 were receiving “outdoor relief” from the charity.
Queen Victoria visited the orphanage in 1886 and granted it Royal Patronage. It was the Queen’s last visit to Liverpool, and she signed the visitors’ book. But the title “Royal” was not bestowed on the Orphanage until 1921, by King George V. The orphanage closed in 1949 due to the requirements of the 1944 Education Act, but the charity still exists in Liverpool and continues to support the children of deceased British merchant seamen.
We know from family stories that Elizabeth was not abandoned by her family because they used to visit her. One family tradition is that John Tannahill was visiting his young sister at the orphanage and met his future wife there, Mary Eliza Catterall. Records show that Mary was certainly never a resident at the orphanage, and it is possible that she may have been a staff member.
Elizabeth would have received domestic training at the orphanage, prior to being placed in domestic service on leaving. But tragically, she suffered two attacks of typhoid fever and died at the Orphanage aged only 15 on 15 May 1898. She was not buried in the family grave in Longmoor Lane Fazakerly, but in Anfield cemetery.

According to census records 1851-71 the family were based in Liverpool during this period. Her Robertson grandparents had moved from Scotland around 1840. Her father Allan died at sea of apoplexy on the ship Bertha in November 1872. Recent information suggests he died off Port Said or off Aden and was buried at sea. He was chief engineer on another steamship - SS Virago.
