    Notes 
    • CHILDREN OF MAJOR WILLIAM LOGIE AND MARY McNAIR

      Mary McNair was born in Barony Parish, Glasgow, on the 13th of July, 1784, and died on the 2nd of August, 1818 in Scotland. Children:


      1---Sheriff William Alexander Logie was born on December the 18th, 1808, at Greenfield, Barony Parish, Scotland, and died on the 15th of November, 1872, at Airdrie, Strathclyde, Scotland, (his will was registered on the 19th of December, 1872). He married Jane Hewit Black on the 1st of June, 1837, at Barony Parish. In 1855 they were living at 77 St. Vincent Street, Glasgow.

      Tribute to William Alexander Logie as reported in the local press:

      THE LATE SHERIFF LOGIE

      Yesterday, before entering on the business of the Appeal Court, Mr. Sheriff Bell made the following allusion to the sudden death of the late Mr. Sheriff Logie:---I would be doing injustice to my own feelings if I did not take the present opportunity of noticing that since this court last met one of the judges ordinary of this county has been removed from the sphere of his usefulness under circumstances of a very striking and solemn character. Mr. Logie, though not one of the Sheriffs-substitute of the Lower Ward, was in use for some years back to give, as you are all aware, very able assistance in our Small Debt Court in Glasgow. In his own district of the Middle Ward no man could have discharged the important duties entrusted to him more conscientiously or intelligently. His painfully sudden death, when upon his own bench, is one of those mysterious dispensations of Providence which, whilst it impresses us with awe, cannot fail at the same time to awaken a deep feeling of sympathy. In the ordinary course of nature, he might have been expected still to occupy for a considerable period the honourable position he held, but he has been removed from it in a moment by that Supreme will to which we must all bow. I earnestly trust that the blow may be mitigated in some way to her who is no longer to enjoy his companionship in the home he has left vacant, and for whom the whole community in which he dwelt feels so deeply. I shall not enlarge further at present on the deceased’s many good qualities; but it may be my duty afterwards to revert in Airdrie to this melancholy event.

      2---James (John) Alexander Logie was born on October the 17th, 1810, at Athlone, Ireland, and died at Lindsay, Ontario. He was a Lieutenant in the Royal Marines. In July of 1837 he was living in a house in Ops Township, Victoria County, Ontario, on a 200 acre farm given to him by Major William Logie. He was married in Scotland, and immigrated to Canada in 1832. They had three sons; Alexander Morrison Logie of Buffalo, New York, Charles Logie of Toronto, Ontario, and William Logie of Lindsay, Ontario.

      3---Margaret Logie was born on the 1st of November, 1811, at Greenfield, Scotland, and died in 1852 at Cheltenham, Gloustershire, England. She married Andrew Walker at Colombo, Ceylon, on the 1st of November, 1827. They had 10


      Children:
      William Walker 1829-1852
      James Walker 1830-1832
      Agnes Walker 1832-1838
      Mary Walker 1833-1833
      Anne Walker 1836-1837
      Andrew George Walker 1839-1872
      Jane Walker
      Margaret Walker 1843-1848
      Catherine Barbara Walker 1845
      Margaret Logie Walker 1852

      4---Mary Logie was born on the 9th of July, 1813, in Irvine, Nairn, Scotland, and died on the 11th of February, 1899, at 57 Leamington Terrace in Edinburgh. She immigrated to Kingston, Ontario in 1832, with her father and his second family. She was a founding member of the Kingston Orphan’s Home and was the Recording Secretary of its committee for a number of years. She also was a very active member of the St. Andrew’s Ladies Missionary Association in Kingston. Mary lived with her father and stepmother (Anne) at Glenlogie (their house near Kingston) and in Kingston. She continued to live in Kingston with her stepmother after her father’s death in 1853, but when Anne died in 1868 she moved to Hamilton, Ontario, to live with her half-brother Judge Alexander Logie. Later she moved back to Scotland to live with the widow of her brother Sheriff William Logie in Edinburgh. The 1881 census for 6 Leamington Terrace gives the inhabitants as Mary Logie, Jane Hewit (Black) Logie (the widow of Sheriff William Alexander Logie), Jane’s niece Sophia Spens-Black, and Anna Barbara Logie visiting from Hamilton, Ontario.

      5---Son Logie was born and died May the 26th, 1816 at Hillhead, Renfrewshire, Scotland

      6---Agnes Logie was born on the 8th, May, 1817, in Eastwood, Renfrew, Scotland and died on October the 19th, 1817, in Scotland.
