Peter Coats Family History Paisley Scotland

This evening, I am posting an image of a statue erected in memory of Sir Peter Coats of Woodside who lived July 18th 1808-March 9th 1890. This statue is located close to Paisley Town Hall (in background) and was erected by public subscription Feb 26th 1898.

Sir Peter Coats was prominent in the local textile industry which helped to drive Paisley to great prosperity in the 19th and 20th centuries.
