In 2014 the centenary of the outbreak of World War One, Cumnock History Group began researching the names on the Cumnock War Memorial plus other men and women with Cumnock connections mentioned on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission or in the Cumnock Chronicle of the time. The research is not limited to those who died but also to men and women who served, using family history information.

The group would like to appeal to individuals with knowledge of family members for photographs of the soldier, either in uniform or not, and photos of medals or other memorabilia eg letters sent home from the Front. If you would be prepared to share these on this site, please email the web manager cumnockhistory [at] The group is willing to share any copies of documents found with the soldier's descendants.

John Collins Johnstone

John Collins Johnstone of 130 Commondyke was an underground motorman when he enlisted in the Scots Guards at Ayr on 22 April 1918 age 20 . He was born on 25 January 1898 to Hugh Johnstone and Mary Collins.

Regimental number17672

His service record survives. He was 5ft 8in, had dark brown hair and blue eyes. He was with the BEF in France from Oct 1918 until Apr 1919.

He survived the war but died in Ballochmyle Hospital after an ear operation aged only 36.

I am grateful to his granddaughter Nanette McKee for the photo and information.

Adam Leckie

Born in 1890 in Cumnock to Adam Leckie and Mary Sweden, he was a private in the 1/5th RSF.
He was given an honourable discharge due to wounds received in 1915.  The Cumnock Chronicle provides the details. And his medal card confirms this.

Cumnock Connections tree  The father Adam was the half brother of John Ross married to Agnes McMeekin, great grand aunt of my husband, so I am more than usually interested in the family.

100 years ago today

On the 26th October 1914 the first of the Cumnock men to die was John Docherty.

I wrote about him here.

George Burns

I had trouble finding which, of the many George Burns to die, was the one on Cumnock War Memorial.

The war memorial has him Sgt George Burns of the Argyll & Southern Highlanders. No match for this.

The Roll of Honour list in the Cumnock Chronicle on 24th March 1916 has him as
 Sergeant George Burns of the 2nd Seaforth Highlanders.

This helped narrow it down to the man below but he's not a sergeant and I still can't link him to Cumnock and there are several George Burns born in Kilmarnock in the time frame.

Name: George Burns
Birth Place: Kilmarnock, Ayrshire
Death Date: 9 May 1915

Enlistment Place: Kilmarnock
Rank: Private

Major General Sir Richard Bannatyne-Allason

Richard Allason Bannatine was born on 22nd September 1855 at Glaisnock House in Cumnock to Dr Richard Bannatine an army surgeon and Charlotte Owen an Australian, who were married n Sydney on 13 Nov 1851. She was the daughter of  Assistant Commissary General Stephen Owen. Their daughter Charlotte was born in Sydney on Dec 1852. Richard senior had been in Sydney since at least 1844 when he was noted as assistant staff surgeon to the 58th regiment.

By 1861 census the family was living at Glaisnnock House in Cumnock

Richard Bannatine     45  Landed Proprietor Employing 1 Man & 4 Woman b Edinburgh
Charlotte Bannatine     30 wife b Australia
Charlotte J Bannatine     8 dau b Australia
Richard A Bannatine     5 son b O Cumnock
Elizabeth C Bannatine     3 dau b O Cumnock
Owen A Bannatine     1 son b O Cumnock
Marian Owen     23 sister in law anuitant b Australia
Robt Bannatine     53 brother  annuitant b Edinburgh
Mary Allan     23 servant nurse b Australia
Grace Murdoch     24 servant cook b Kirkconnel
Jane Gillespie     33 servant housemaid b Ireland
Christena Love     15 servant under nurse b Cumnock

A fifth child Rachel Marion Bannatine was born in 1861.
The father died in 1867 in Kent and the family seems to have remained mainly in the south of England. None of the three girls married. Richard himself doesn't appear to have married. Brother Owen married and lived in India for a while.

Richard by then a Lieutenant in the Royal Horse Artillery is visiting William Allason Cunninghame at Logan House in the 1881 census. He must be a relation. Richard has Cunninghams of Glengarnock in his ancestry. Many of his ancestors were Church of Scotland ministers and there are good records of them in the Fasti Ecclesiasticae.
Also helpful was " A genealogical account of the principal families of Ayrshire" by George Robertson 1823 available online here

In his seventies he travelled a lot between Port Said to London. His address was Little Kames, Sunninghill, Berkshire

Sir Richard died in Sunninghill, Berkshire in 1940. He left over £4,00 to Theodore Henry Bayford Owen an east India merchant.
