    Notes 
    • Janet, the daughter, after her maternal grandmother, Janet Brodie. Janet Tannahill dressed equally grandly on Sundays. A satin bonnet, gaudily got up, white muslin dress or silk gown according to the state of the weather, red silk quilted petticoat, silk stockings, cloth shoes, and pattens in wet weather. In winter, cloth gown, muff and cloak. In all seasons an umbrella, an article which had then been recently introduced into Paisley, and was sold by Mr. Alexander Weir, cloth merchant, at the Cross. Miss Tannahill, being a dressmaker, came out pretty strong in the fashions of the day to show her ability for the business. On the 27th of January, 1792, Janet Tannahill, then twentv-three years of age, was married to James Smith, weaver in Paisley, after two days' proclamation of banns, thereby showing that they belonged to the middle class of society. James Smith was a native of the neighbouring parish of Inchinnan, and was a very quiet, inoffensive person, respected by all his acquaintances.
