Was doing research on my family who lived at 43 Park St when I came across this site.
All my family both on Dad and Mum’s side all came from Cambuslang
My grandparents Hugh and Jean Thomson lived there and my father Jim Thomson was born at number43 in June 1920, they then moved to 140 Main St in the 30-40s
Mum’s family all lived and were born in 39 Colebrook St. 6 kids my Mum’s name was Jean Burns and my grandparents were Jim and Chrissy Burns
All the family were either miners or steelworkers at Colvilles
The Burns family except my Mum and her sister Chrissy moved to Australia after WW2. My family moved there in the late 60s
My grandfather Hugh Thomson’s family lived at 53 Monkcastle Drive. I noticed just up the road from that address is Thomson Court(not sure if family had any connection.
I did hear that the Thomson’s had a bakery somewhere near there.
I was back in Cambuslang in Feb 2020 as I still have relatives there that we visit
I also have a heap of old photos of old Cambuslang
