Dr. James A. Raeburn

by untangledwebl

Proposer of the Toast  “The Immortal Memory of Robert Burns” 1907

Dr Raeburn became a member of ‘Let it Blaw’ in 1907 and was first mentioned in the Toast List/Programme that year.

He owned Ivy Cottage in Balerno and associated land. By 1920, he had left the village and moved to stay in Hull. However, he retained ownership of Ivy Cottage which, by then, was being rented by a James Muirhead, a local railway signalman.

This is not the James Raeburn who was also a member of ‘Let it Blaw’ in this era.
