    Charles Maclaren was born in Ormiston, East Lothian on 7 October 1782. His father was a small farmer and cattle dealer and his mother was Christian M'Kell. It was intended that he should become a smith, but, his constitution not being sufficiently robust, he spent some time as a clerk in several Edinburgh firms. In 1816, the idea of an independent newspaper was formed, the result was The Scotsman. In 1820 Charles MacLaren resigned his clerkship in the Custom House and became full-time editor. He held the post until 1847. At the same time he contrived to be an extensive author, and to travel, to Greece, Troy and the United States. He retired in 1847, and died on 10 September 1866; Ruthven Sime managing clerk Pigot 1825.

He was agent for The New County Atlas of Scotland Stirling Journal 24 May 1821; 'he has now on hand a large assortment of children's books neatly done up, and an extensive collection of popular British authors in the most elegant bindings, admirably adapted for Christmas presents' Stirling Journal 23 December 1824. He was also agent for The Friendly Insurance Company and took in linen for the Dalmuir Bleachfield. Like the Randalls before him, he was one of the largest publishers of chapbooks in Scotland, and like them he published many titles with the imprint 'Edinburgh: printed for the booksellers' as well as a great quantity with his own imprint. At length he 'sold his bookseller business to E. Johnstone, and intends to devote himself solely to printing' Stirling Advertiser 21 January 1831.
