  • STEWART, Thomas bookseller Glasgow and Dublin
    Dublin 1784
    Was in charge of eleven parcels of books printed in Dublin which he was trying to smuggle in through Greenock in July 1784 when they were seized. 'formerly a bookseller in Glasgow, and came passenger in said ship, being now settled in Dublin.' If this is the Thomas Stewart who features in Miss Pollard's book on the Dublin book-trade, the statement that he was formerly a bookseller in Glasgow is a mistake.

    The first issue appeared on 13 July 1820. The editor was Dr Colin Munro in 1820. One of the pressmen Leslie Neilson was still with the paper in 1891. He served his apprenticeship in the Journal office. In 1827 the Journal got into financial difficulties, and the trustee and commissionars on the sequestrated estate of Colin Munro & Co sold the copyright and the plant to James Weir of Kelso, who settled in Stirling and assumed the general management. The Stirling public felt that Colin Munro had not been fairly treated. In the circumstances friends came to the rescue, and Munro was enabled to rent premises in Spittal Street, and on 28 December 1827 issued the first number of The Stirling Advertiser. On the 2 August 1833, James Weir sold the copyright of The Stirling Journal to the proprietors of The Stirling Advertiser. Munro continued to edit the paper until his death in 1852. It was then taken over by James Watson Lyall, with James Hogg as editor, and in 1858, Mr Hogg became a partner. In 1867, Mr Lyall withdrew. On the death of Mr Hogg in 1876, the business was continued by the widow as James Hogg & Co, and remained in their ownership until 9 December 1910.

    There is confusion over the exact address. The street index Edin Dir 1847 gives 22 and 25 Heriot Buildings. The 2 and 25 in the general directory Edin Dir 1847 is obviously a misprint as is the 20 and 25 in that of Edin Dir 1848. The street index gives 32 in 1848, which seems unlikely. Not in Edin Dir 1857.

    Son of Andrew Symson 'Minister of God's Word', born about 1638, possibly in England. Andrew was the youngest son, was educated at Edinburgh High School and Edinburgh University and graduated in arts 19 July 1661. He had already at that date taken up a place as usher at Stirling Grammar School 2 March 1661. He was licenced to preach in January 1663 and settled in Kirkinner. This was the unhappy time when James II was persecuting the Ministers of the Church of Scotland and Symson was one of the young ministers sent to fill the gaps in the local ministry, and found himself preaching to an empty church. From time to time he had to hide, and eventually the Earl of Galloway took him into his own house for his protection. During this time he served as Clerk to the Synod of Galloway. At some time after he became Minister of Kirkinner, he married Jane Inglis. In a certificate of 15 October 1684, they had two sons over the age of 12, Andrew and David. The youngest son Matthias was born about 1672, and so does not appear on the certificate. On 12 January 1686 he was presented to the parish of Douglas. In 1689 he was outed by hs parishoners because he had been 'obtruded on them without their consent and lawfull call' and on 23 March 1692 the parish was declared vacant. Mr Andrew. Burgess and Guild Brother 'late Minister at Kirkinner, therafter at Douglas by right of admission of Bailie Alexr Baird 24 March 1697. "In 1700 Mr. Matthias Symson, a student in Divinity, set up a small house; but he, designed to prosecute his studies, left the house to his father, Mr. Andrew, one of the suffering clergy, who kept up the house till about a year ago (1712) that he died." Watson. The laws of Scotland in matters criminal. In 1700 he started printing on his own account. He frequently uses a monogram of the letters M and S, presumably a device cut for his son Matthias. Andrew Symson died 20 January 1712. EBS.iii.v. "Catalogues of Mr Symson's books will be publish'd next week, both of those to be exposed by auction and those to be exposed by lottery." Scots Post-Man 1 July 1712. The National Library of Scotland has Bibliotheca Symsoniana; a catalogue of books in the library of the late ... Andrew Symson. Edinburgh, 1712. Andrew Symson was the author or editor of a number of works, the most important being A large description of Galloway, not published until 1823. He printed his long poem Tripatriarchicon; or, The lives of the three patriarchs... digested into English in 1705. Apprentices: John Harvie 3 January 1707; Robert Fleming 8 February 1710, Guild Brother 31 August 1748. There is some biographical information in the manuscript notes to a copy of his A Letter from Mr Andrew Symson to Mr William Forbes (NLS MS Acc 9596).
