    He was born at Mouswald in 1671. In February 1692 he entered Glasgow University, taking his M.A. 4 April 1694. On 21 March 1695 was appointed Precentor of the Church and Clerk to the Session of Dumfries. A fortnight later he was appointed Clerk of the Presbytery, and on 8 October was chosen Clerk of the Synod. In March 1697, Rae resigned his Presbytery Clerkship and took the divinty course at Edinburgh University. On 19 July 1697 he married Agnes, eldest daughter of John Corsane of Meikleknox. On 15 November 1699 he was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Penpont. He was obviously already showing mechanical ability, for on 31 July 1702 he was admitted a freeman of the Incorporation of Hammermen of Dumfries. On 22 April 1703 he was ordained Minister of Kirkbride. He was not popular with his parishioners, who had not had a minister since 1662, and he was involved in a series of cases. These came to a head in July 1713. Fourteen of his parishoners charged him with being "so taken up with mechanics and worldly business that it takes him off his ministerial office ... and that he causes print obscene ballads in his own house." They also charged him with being agent for the Duke of Queensberry at the Wanlockhead lead mines to the neglect of his proper duties. Rae prosecuted his accusers for libel befor the Presbytery. The Synod found that most of the charges were not so much as attempted to be proven. It had come out in evidence that Robert Rae had printed several copies of the ballad Maggy Lauder, in the absence of his father. Rae submitted himself to the Synod on the Wanlockhead affair, pleading that the business can scarcely be said to divert him from his ministerial work, and that it was necessary for the support of his family, he having a very small stipend which is very ill payed. No book has been found with his name on it. The parish was suppressed in 1727 by the Lords Commissioners of Teinds, and in 1732 he was translated to Kirkconnel. While there he made an astronomical chiming clock for Charles 3rd Duke of Queensberry. He died there 29 December 1748. He published A History of the Rebellion of 1715, which was printed at Dumfries by his son Robert in 1718..

    Eldest son of Peter Rae, Minister of Kirkbride and Agnes Corsane. He was born 20 May 1698. Printed on a press in the house of his father 1711-14. In July 1713 his father was attacked for having a printing-office in the manse. By 1715 the press had been transferred to Dumfries. In 1721 he published a newspaper, The Drumfries Mercury, of which No 18 May 1 to 8 1721 survives. By 2 February 1719, he had acquired the estate of Meikleknox from his mother's relations and assumed his mother's name, being Robert Corson of Meikleknox. To obtain the estates of his mother he married Agnes M'Gowan the daughter of the other claimant. He died 17 February 1759.

    Mary Randall Bakers-wynd 1813-20
    Born in 1749, son of a Scottish surgeon who was out in the 45. The first printer in Stirling, since Lekprevik, he published, in 1794, A general history of Stirling which was several times reprinted. His principle concern was the publication of large quantities of chapbooks, some of which have the imprint 'Edinburgh: printed for the booksellers', and he ran a circulating library which he gave up in 1798. There is an advertisement in The Glasgow Courier of 29 March in that year of its sale, which describes it as consisting of 'upwards of three thousand volumes'. There are two volumes in the Blair's College collection in the National Library of Scotland with large oval labels for RANDALL'S/CIRCULATING LIBRARY/STIRLING/No. He married, about 1806 Mary Stedman, who was his junior by some twenty-seven years. They had three children, Margaret who died in 1830 at the age of 23; James, who died in 1821, age 10, and Charles, who changed his name to Randolph, and became a ship builder in Glasgow. His father died in December 1812 aged 63 and is buried in Holy Rude Churchyard Stirling. Mary Randall sold the business to William Macnie in 1820. Charles Randall probably employed Francis Ireland, printer, in 1800. Apprentices: Francis Ireland, John Fraser and John Shearer.

She died 28 November 1847, age 71, and was buried beside her husband in Holy Rude Churchyard in Stirling.

    Burgess 100 merks to the poors box by act of Council 6 November 1678. Apprenticed to the Heirs of Andrew Anderson. Left their service in 1680 and started to print with Patrick Ramsay. As a result of the decree against Sanders in 1680, Mrs Anderson took out letters of horning against him as an apprentice of hers who had not served his term, and had set up as a printer, and had him imprisoned in Edinburgh Tolbooth. He was released by order of the Privy Council on 6 January 1681. On 1 February 1681, he was freed on condition that he find caution 'to serve the Kings printer in the termes and for the space contained in his said band, and in the meantime doe ordaine him to close up his presse' (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser 3.vii.3, 31-33). At the end of 1683, Agnes Campbell and James Anderson her son complained that John Reid in manifest contempt of that decree did not only desert the complainer's service, but set up a press. The Privy Council found that Reid had served ' for a considerable time' and allowed him to continue printing until the case in the Court of Session was settled. In November of the same year Mrs Anderson brought a further action against him for stealing type from her printing office. Married Margaret Edward 12 October 1675; Margaret Edward buried in Greyfriars Churchyard 30 November 1684; Child buried 13 April 1684; 'a halflin' 11 May 1686. Married Anna Halyday 2 July 1687.

Printed a number of broadsides and chapbooks. The latter include An account of the last words of Christian Ker, by Archibald Deans 1702; An account of the admirable conversion of one Sarah Howley, a child of eight 1704; and A true and full relation of the witches of Pittenweem, 1704. After his death in August 1712 his daughter Margaret carried on the business.

In 1840 he gave up his business and went to Hong Kong to edit a newspaper and prepare a Chinese dictionary. He died there in 1841 or 1842.

    Robert Reid was the son of John Reid of St Cuthbert's parish in Edinburgh, and was born in 1808. On 18 November 1830 he married, in Kirkcaldy, Catherine Lambert, daughter of Andrew Lambert, weaver in Linktown. His occupation at that time is given as bookbinder. He possibly came to Leven because of the death in February 1834 of John Elder, Pastor of the Congregational Chapel in Leven also acted as librarian, bookseller and stationer. In 1852 he was recorded as bookseller, stationer, printer, sub-distributor of stamps and circulating library. He went bankrupt in August 1854, and he and his family emigrated to Australia. Unfortunately, about 1000 miles out of Melbourne, the ship sprung a leak, and everyone had to take turns at the pumps. He survived the ship's arrival in Melbourne only six weeks, dying on 3 June 1855.

    Son of Robert Reid baker and Christian Wood, was born in Glasgow 10 April 1764. He was apprenticed to the typefounder of the Wilsons, and then learned bookselling with Dunlop and Wilson of Glasgow. In 1790 he entered into partnership with James Brash with whom he set up a highly successful bookselling business. William Reid wrote additional verses for some of Burn's songs, Of a' the airts the winds can blaw ad John Anderson my jo, as well as to Robert Fergusson's Lea Rig, and a Monody on the death of Burns. All these appeared in Brash and Reid's Poetry Original and Selected. The business was dissolved by mutual consent on 3 November 1817. William Reid then took his brother-in-law, Archibald Henderson into partnership, as Reid and Henderson. When that partnership too was wound up on 3 April 1826, he carried on the business with his son, also called William, as William Reid & Son. The father retired about 1829 and died 22 November 1831, being survived by his wife, Elizabeth Henderson. There was an obituary in The Scots Times 29 November 1831.
