A directory of notable Coldstream people from previous times. Please click the name of each person for full details and a larger image. The Society feels that Coldstream people who made their mark in whatever they were involved in should be identified and highlighted. Two very different people, from very different eras, are the Reverend Doctor Adam Thomson of the Free Bible Society and Tommy Ledgerwood of Partick Thistle Football Club, and these are included. Others are being added, as time allows.
Roger Marjoribanks of Guidford, Surrey, is the current Secretary of the Marjoribanks Clan and has kindly sent the Society an account of the Lees branch of the Marjoribanks. This is to be read in conjunction with the text from the society's book 'Second to None: A History of Coldstream' which helps to widen the Marjoribanks story. We hope you enjoy reading it.
Thomas Smith Goldie was one of the most noteable Ministers of Coldstream Parish Church. His tenure was between 1830-1859.
This is the story of one of Coldstream's notable Provosts, Hans Langmack, who was very ubiquitous in the town of Coldstream. Society member Gerald Tait can remember moving to Duns Road in 1979 with his family and Hans lived across the road. He was the first to knock on the door and welcome the Tait family to Coldstream.Hans is buried in Lennel Kirkyard and this is accounted in the Lennel Headstone Transcriptions part of this website.
This is the story of the late Tommy Ledgerwood who was arguably the best footballer to be produced by Coldstream.
This is the story of a local lad who 'made good' with Berwick Rangers Football Club.
This is essentially the story of the Reverend Adam Thomson DD, the Minister of the Parish Church, who was born in Coldstream in 1779 and died, still in office, in 1861 at the ripe old age of 82 years. His fame in Coldstream and elswhere is greatly related to the Coldstream Free Bible Press. The Society is eternally grateful to the late Doctor Brian J. Sproule for this informative account of a very worthy person.
