Paterson Ancestry, Glasgow, Scotland

This afternoon, I am posting information on one John Paterson from information on a memorial stone at Glasgow's Necropolis.

This records that John Paterson, Assay Master of the Goldsmiths Company of Glasgow, died on Jan 20th 1848 age 75.

This is clearly a very 0ld memorial dating back to the early days of the Necropolis as a burial ground.

Paterson is one of the top 20 common surnames in Scotland and means 'son of Patrick'.
