    Wrote to Commissioners of the Annexed Estates on 16 December 1775 to say that they had recently put up a papermill. They were having cash flow problems. Barnet was probably the landowner and Ferguson the millwright. John Ferguson converted the cornmills at Airthrey and Keir to papermaking and built a second mill at Airthrey. Auchterarder Walkmiln (Excise No 2) was erected in 1775 by James Barnet of Castlemains and John Ferguson of Shinafoot. In 1794 all three mills were making calender paper used in clothmaking. He was involved in the smuggling of paper. He was arrested and sentenced to pay a fine of £999,000. Meanwhile his brother Robert ran the papermills at Bridge of Allen, and his son also Robert the one at Auchterarder. All three mills were taken over by James Macrobie in 1808. After two years in prison John Ferguson was released. He died in 1810 aged 77. Robert Ferguson, son of John was at Auchterarder when he died in 1823. Alexander Ferguson then took it over.

    Murray was the first editor and printer of The Fifehire Journal, a tory rejoinder the whig Fife Herald. He was an Edinburgh journalist who had worked on The Edinburgh Correspondent, and The Edinburgh Courant before taking on The Journal. In January 1836, the paper was acquired by Cupar writer, William Pagan, and James Moore Graham, a medical practitioner, and the paper was moved to Cupar. The man who moved the press was the paper's printer John Jeffers Wilson. He soon left the paper because he 'Found too many masters there'. In addition to the owners he had to deal with the publishers, the Cupar booksellers Gardner and Anderson. Wilson was followed by David Abercromby November 1836-May 1837; and then by James Tod who held the post of printer from May 1837-November 1849. In March 1851, William Pagan and James Moore Graham sold their interest in The Journal to David Page.
