Became a member of ‘Let it Blaw’   c.1886

 

First mentioned in Toast List/Programme  1886

Believed to be the brother of long time President of ‘Let it Blaw’ Thomas Horsburgh, William also served his time as a blacksmith at their fathers smiddy in Duddingston. Its believed William also moved to the Currie/Balerno area although, as it was an era with numerous blacksmiths in the two villages, there’s nothing to show that he worked at either of his brother’s Balerno smiddies.
