    This presentation will be premiered at 2:00m on Thursday 3 September, and will be available to view after this time.

    A daring burglary & King Edward VII

    Thurston House

    Thurston House at Innerwick was sadly demolished in 1952 while still in almost perfect condition. The gentleman who lived there in 1909 – Richard Hunter – was a dead ringer for King Edward VII something which caused him a great nuisance as he was often mistaken for his majesty!

    Even more interesting though is the story of the burglary which took place there in May 1909. Three men broke into the house in the early hours of the morning and stole money and valuables and made off on bicycles. This was the second time the house has been burgled and so an alarm system installed after the first burglary soon alerted the local constabulary. The culprits were captured after an exciting police chase across the County. This case is thought to be the first time a motor car was used to catch a criminal in East Lothian. You can read more detail on the capture in the extracts from the Courier.

    The images show the well-dressed burglars being transported to Edinburgh for trial. The men were named as Richard Gilben, Charles Masson & William Nelson. They pled guilty to the crime and Gilben as the purported ringleader was sentenced to 18 months in prison while the other two received 9 month sentences.

    Criminals at Dunbar on the way to Edinburgh

    A Private Man-o’-War

    East Lothian has always been a maritime county – in past centuries vessels from Fisherrow, Morrison’s Haven, Aberlady, North Berwick and Dunbar traded far and wide. And as they sailed they risked more than bad weather and dangerous shores. For much of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries Britain was at war and merchant ships ran the gamut of foreign navies – and foreign privateers.

    A privateer was a privately financed warship sanctioned by ‘letters of marque’ issued by its home government, a license to target the merchant marine of the government’s enemies. Basically, a privateer was one roll of parchment away from being an out-and-out pirate. As time passed, the letter of marque was internationally recognised as a means of augmenting sea-power quickly and, from governments’ point of view, cheaply. Consequently, Britain too went in for letters of marque in a big way!

    Any small merchant ship could be equipped with a few guns and a large crew and set off to roam the seas. In his younger days James Fall of Dunbar was one such commander, converting the family flagship Happy Janet into a privateer with backing from his brothers and a group of London merchants, which helped secure the coveted letter of marque. On the back of this experience he was ever after ‘Captain’ James, even when serving as an MP at Westminster. He wasn’t the only East Lothian privateer captain.

    Advertisement, Caledonian Mercury 8th June 1758

    George Calbreath (or Galbraith) first appears as a privateer captain in command of the Deptford in 1757. By May of 1758 he had transferred to the Hussar (it’s just possible that this is the same ship under a new name and owners as the crew numbers, tonnages and armament are similar) and was on the hunt for more men. An advertisement or appeal duly appeared in the Caledonian Mercury on the 8th of June 1758. Stressing George’s Dunbar roots it appealed for ‘seamen, fishermen, landsmen, and boys’ who would be rewarded for signing on and promised ‘prize money’ because George had ‘good intelligence’ of ‘70 rich sail’ from St Domingo and the Caribbean intending for Europe. A second inducement was a promise of security from the press gang and safe escort home. Did anyone take this offer up?

    Anyone reading this ad would know, because fighting captains were the celebrities of the day, that the Deptford had, under George’s command, been successful.

    • She had taken the Count de Gifors of St Malmo in May of 1757 in the Channel and had an exciting night avoiding her prize’s four compatriots that had come up in support. They were all individually smaller but the Deptford would have had a hard time if had come to blows; the prize went to Falmouth to be sold.

    • Just weeks later the Deptford and another privateer, the Defiance, intercepted and took the Britannia, a British merchantman which had fallen prey to a French privateer on a voyage from Jamaica to London. Back in British hands, the Deptford escorted her into Falmouth. The Britannia was laden with sugar, coffee, spices, timber, rum & cotton – which George & his crew now had a claim to. The Deptford then headed to Kinsale in the southeast of Ireland for cleaning and repairs before venturing out again in the middle of September 1757.

    • Off Cape Finisterre in the middle of November that year she captured the French privateer Signe (or Cigne) of 6 guns and sent her in to Cork to be sold.

    • Immediately after, in conjunction with the privateer Antelope, the Deptford took another French privateer, from the port of Bayonne, of 26 guns and a crew of 300.

    HMS Juno, 1757

    This picture of HMS Juno of 1757 gives a good impression of George’s ships the Deptford and Hussar. Although the Juno was a bit bigger, she carried a similar broadside and a similar sized crew. Command of a vessel of this type put George amongst the first rank of privateer captains – the bulk of British privateers were smaller brigs and sloops of fewer men and guns.

    It was surely this run of success that won George the command of the Hussar in the following year. By 16 July 1758 and after his recruiting visit to the Forth Captain Calbreath was in the thick of it again. He sent in a letter to Aberdeen by means of passing fishermen to the effect that two French privateers had taken three British Greenland whalers and that the Hussar had been chased by them for 5 hours. Nothing more is heard of the Hussar until November, when she sent into Falmouth the Dutch vessel Elizabeth of St Eustatia, with news of yet another prize still at sea.

    In July 1759 it was reported that the Hussar and 19 other British privateers were to be taken under Admiralty command – being thereafter HM Hired Ships. And what happened to Captain George Calbreath? Naval officers took over command of the Hussar and George slips from the record. Except, in 1764, a George Calbreath commanded the Honorable East India Company’s ship Lord Anson. If this was Dunbar’s George, it would be a fitting, and lucrative, reward – but that would be another story.

    Days Out in the Past – War Walks

    These days East Lothian is known for its beautiful beaches and countryside, and it’s hard to imagine the place as the front line in a war.  But the traces of past conflicts are there, and with a little local help their stories can be revealed.

    During both World Wars the East Lothian coastline was of great strategic importance, guarding the approach to Edinburgh and the naval base at Rosyth.  It was heavily defended against any possible attack and that has left its mark on the landscape.

    Aberlady Bay is a quiet and peaceful nature reserve, but it also hides a wartime secret only visible at low tide.  In May 1946 two midget submarines were moored at the low water mark in the bay, to be used as target practice by the RAF.  Another surprising feature is the network of defences from World War II.  Today the concrete blocks that line the sides of the bay seem almost part of the landscape, perhaps a long forgotten art installation.  But they were built with a deadly serious purpose, to stop enemy tanks from advancing along the coast.

    Tour some of the World War II defences of East Lothian on 3rd September
    Miles of concrete blocks defended our coast during World War II

    For East Lothian Archaeology and Local History Fortnight a special guided walk led by the local history society will take visitors to explore some of these defences, and cross the sands of the bay to see the wrecks of the midget submarines.

    Aircraft were also key to defending the East Lothian coast, and it was back in World War I that an airfield was established near Drem, now home to the National Museum of Flight.  A group of enthusiasts have taken on the task of preserving a little of that heritage , lovingly rebuilding a World War I Sopwith Strutter biplane.  Normally kept under-wraps in the group’s temporary hanger at Congalton Gardens near North Berwick, the public will be allowed an exclusive view of this unique fighter plane as part of the Archaeology and Local History fortnight events.

    World War I Sopwith Strutter

    East Lothian was also a battleground in the 1500’s, as English and Scottish armies contested over the hand of the infant Mary Queeen of Scots.  English monarchs were intent on forging an alliance with Scotland through marriage, but when their plans were rejected they sent soilders north to force the issue, a period known rather ironically as the ‘Rough Wooing’.

    In 1547 an invading English army reached Musselburgh before being confronted by the Scots.  The Scottish commander the Earl of Arran invited his English counterpart to settle the matter man to man, an archaic gesture from an earlier age of chivalry before cannons and gunpowder.  A guided tour led by volunteers from the Pinkie Cleugh Battlefield Group will take visitors along the route taken by the advancing Scots, starting from the Roman bridge and including the vantage point of Inveresk Church.

    Following the battle, English troops garrisoned the town of Haddington, hoping to draw the Scots and their French allies into committing to a lengthy and costly siege.  When the Queens Consort Mary of Guise came to view the scene she strayed too close to the enemy lines, and English gunners opened fire killing sixteen of her followers and leaving the queen stricken with terror.  The reality of siege warfare of this time will be brought to life in a guided walk, led by Jon Cooper from the Centre for Battlefield Arcaheology.  Leading visitors into medieval closes, across the killing fields and into the trenches, he will reveal some of the shocking truths of how the siege was conducted.

    Something to eat? A short distance from Aberlady Bay, the village of Gullane has many places to eat.  The half-timbered Old Clubhouse pub was built in 1890 as the original clubhouse for Gullane Golf Club.  Tom Kitchen has also recently opened the Bonnie Badger, a pub and restaurant in a coaching inn dating to 1836.  In Haddington, Falko Konditormeister is located in a coaching inn dating to the 1700s. and the Waterside Bistro occupies a row of Georgian cottages with a fine view across the River Tyne to St Mary’s Collegiate Church.

    How to get there? Aberlady Bay: By bus – East Coast Buses x5, 124 or x24.  By car -on the A198.  Congalton Gardens: On the B1347, close to the National Museum of Flight at East Fortune. Haddington: By bus – East Coast Buses x7, 106 and 107.  By Car -just off the A1.

    East Lothian Visual Artists and Craft Makers Awards – A Retrospective Exhibition (2015 – 2018)

    This vibrant selling exhibition in the temporary gallery showcases the work of past recipients of Arts Awards including James Craig Page, Sophie Ferguson, Barbara Rowell, Eleanor Symms, Georgina Bown and Mike Windle.
    Saturday 1 December 2018 – Tuesday 8 January 2019

    A short film on Vimeo about stone stacking, shot in Dunbar, Scotland. Featuring James Craig Page, Sterling Gregory and Travis Williams. Shot and edited by Glenda Rome is available here:

    Graduating from Edinburgh College of Art as a mature student in 2012, award winning artist jeweller, Eleanor Symms, has exhibited in the UK and internationally and has work in a number of public and private collections.

    Eleanor’s work derives from a fascination with different types of materials, especially reclaimed plastics, which she finds and scavenges for use in her work. Often, her starting point will be the shape, colour or texture of something she has found; sea-worn plastics from the beach or scraps of waste sheet materials, which would otherwise be discarded.

    Aiming to make jewellery which is beautiful, intriguing and sustainable, rather than purely decorative, she wants her work to question the nature of ‘preciousness’ and disposability.

    Ash Lagoons Necklace and Brooch on display in the gallery explores the nature of the Ash Lagoons at Levenhall, on the outskirts of Musselburgh, East Lothian. These lagoons are part of an area of reclaimed land, created by pulverised fuel ash, the waste product of the former coal-fired power station along the coast at Cockenzie. I have been intrigued by this site for many years. It has a strange beauty and sense of desolation. It is truly a waste land, scarred and shaped by past industry. Piles of ash have settled, grey and glittering, into miniature mountain ranges, cliffs and ridges and windswept open spaces, once filled with ash and water, are now gradually being reclaimed by nature.  www.eleanorsymms.co.uk

    Having first sailed to St Kilda over 30 years ago Michael Windle visited again this summer – taking some contemporary technology to examine that journey (and others) – and exploring some of the many stories surrounding the island.
    An important aspect of VR is to allow an audience to see something new. For most people St Kilda will be a place strong in the national consciousness, but somewhere they will never visit. www.porty.net/st-kilda …is a container for narratives, videos and objects, and will grow in shape and content as time goes on.
    I spent my early life in various parts of UK, Middle and Far East before studying painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Dundee. Moving to London in 1987 – my first home was Acme Studios (now the site of Zaha Hadid’s Olympic Aquatic Centre) and then Delfina Studio Trust. Since returning to Scotland I have taught at Edinburgh College of Art.
    From the beginning of the 90s with the introduction of PCs in the studio environment my work tended to track the outputs that were currently possible… firstly screen-based works, moving on to print as resolution became higher, interactive pieces (until I realised creating multiple-pathways made the workload impossible for one person), and more recently video. I have a strong sense that my video work is highly idiosyncratic and contains perhaps the same slippery texture as I have explored with oil and canvas previously.

    For Georgina Brown being based near the East Lothian coast and the proximity to the sea has formed fascination with sea-going vessels. Submarines have become a focus partly due to their menacing presence, power and because they are purely designed for a function which intrigues me. I have been fascinated by exposing their strengths but also creating a vulnerability, rendering them helpless/defenceless. A background in metal sculpture facilitates an appreciation of engineering and construction of these vast, beautiful beasts. I believe there’s an essential link between printmaking and sculpture, where the physical use of machinery exposes the sense of touch, noise and smell. The work I’ve produced over the last few years is focused on creating monoprints; this drawing style of Monoprinting I’ve developed so I can concentrate on mark making as well as pishing and plating with the ink itself to produce one-off printed pictures. Each individual piece a statement in its own right – some intimidating, some fluid and elegant giving thoughts of silent creations coming up from the depths, mysterious, threatening, strong yet gentle. The VACMA awards enabled Georgina to work some of her imagery into a series of limited edition etchings.

    Barbara Rowell is a recent graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, with a BA in Combined Studies, Art and Design. She also has a B.Ed with Visual Arts and over 15 years teaching experience. Her contemporary art practice is developed through experimentation with traditional sustainable processes, such as Japanese woodblock printmaking (Mokuhanga), natural dye pigments, and tapestry weaving. Rowell is interested in the ancient origins of these traditional processes, and the role they once played as the carriers of important social, political and religious information. Rowell works from her studio in Fenton Barns, where she also facilitates group workshops and one to-one mentoring/coaching sessions in printmaking and weaving. She is a member of Visual Arts Scotland, The British Tapestry Group and A-N Network.

    The work was developed from my ongoing body of research into the vast volcanic region of Lanzarote. Following a site visit, I worked in Mokuhanga, traditional Japanese Woodblock printing, to produce simplified designs from my ideas and sketches, which were then translated into abstract designs for weaving. The yarns for the project were hand dyed in natural plant based dyes such as indigo, madder and cochineal. The range of deep subtle hues was achieved by multiple dips and cross-processing.
    I like the idea that tapestry has a vital contemporary role to emit the energy of peace. I am drawn to the inner space that opens up when I am working, and the positive effects this has on my overall well being.
    Creating this space for inner transformation is a key element of my art practice, where the process and the outcome are given equal weighting. I think it is for this reason that I am drawn to slow processes. Alongside the finished tapestry, Caldero Colorado 2018 I have displayed some of the key aspects of the Creative Process Tools and Materials: Mokuhanga woodcut blocks, Japanese Asuza washi, hand dyed yarns.

    James Craig Page is a self taught artist and curator. Born in Dunbar, he began painting in 1997. Over the last 4 years his attention turned to Land Art and Stone Balancing. In 2016 he created the European Stone Stacking Championships in Dunbar. James, then attended, Llano Earth Art Festival in Texas to work with internationally renowned artists, Michael Grab (Gravity Glue), Sterling Gregory and Tim Anderson. This culminated in him curating a Land Art Exhibition called Art of Balance at Summerhall, Edinburgh in May of this year. Supported by the VACMA awards, the show was awarded best exhibition in the UK by the Guardian.

    Land Art, Stone Balancing and any creative interplay with Nature becomes a meditative art form that has endless possibilities. Although this practice may be more ancient than we know, there is a new wave of emerging artists dedicated to exploring and finding the true art in Nature. Amongst them are Michael Grab, Richard Shilling, James Craig Page and Sterling Gregory. These transient artworks reflect a moment in time inspired by the landscape and the natural materials found within.

    Sophie Ferguson  works experimentally dyeing weaving and stitching with a range of materials. Initially driven by personal experience her work looks at the objectification, demonising and subjugation of women. She has been developing skills and techniques with natural indigo and madder dye on silk, wool and paper since her graduation from eca in 2015. She is guided by a sensitivity towards textiles and an understanding of how they convey meaning influenced by her experience in theatre, costume design and construction.

    Sisters Juxtaposes hard solid structures with soft fluid fabrics, naturally dyed to accentuate nuances of hue. Each piece is a captured moment showing the ephemeral nature of the process.
    It is as much about the dye on the fabric as it is about differences, similarities, strength and fragility.

    Archive 2016: Looking back, looking forward

    Well it’s that time of year again. Office parties, last minute panic buying and Slade on the radio. Amongst the craziness it’s also a time to look back and reflect on the past 12 months. What a year 2016 has been! I don’t think anybody could have scripted half of whats happened this year.  In the archive however we have had a really successful year with a number of fabulous new accessions added to the collection.

    The most recent of these are the records of East Linton golf club. The club was formed in 1896 and the early handwritten minute books feature in the donation. The artist Robert Noble was a founder and early captain of the club. He’ll be the focus of an exhibition at the John Gray Centre from next March.

    We’ve also been fortunate enough to receive a number of business records this year. Mains the Saddlers operated as a family business in Haddington for more than a hundred years and when the business was sold on earlier this year the records – some family and some business – were deposited at the archives. Also the business of McArthurs Joiners of East Linton sadly closed this year and records including photographs and employee and apprentice lists were handed over to the archive.

    Coronation of Queen Victoria

    One of the most exciting accessions of the year is the Broun Lindsay collection. Previously kept at Colstoun House it has now housed at the John Gray Centre archives. The collection is an absolute treasure trove! Dating back to the thirteenth century it includes agricultural and estate records for Colstoun, letters from the Vatican and charters (complete with seals) from Kings and Queens, marriage contracts, commemorative newspaper marking the coronation of Queen Victoria printed in gold – the list goes on and on.

    Seal of James VI

    The family also have a very strong Indian connection with two members of the family holding high office there, first George Ramsay as Commander in Chief in 1830 and then James Broun Ramsay as Governor General in 1848. The collection therefore contains a number of personal diaries and volumes of correspondence detailing events and experiences in India at a time of great change and upheaval in the country. Also included are some fascinating images showing what life was like during the time of the British Raj.

    Unknown Indian gentleman

    This year we’ve also been working on converting and cataloguing some of our audio visual collection and so have discovered some real gems. Oral histories recounting life in 1930s Tranent, footage of the open air pool at North Berwick, and a film showing the reconstruction of Garvald Church. The project will continue in 2017 so who knows what else we will find!

    As well as new collections we’ve had really successful outreach events this year. Our tour of the smaller villages within the County was very well received and we really enjoyed getting out and meeting the real local historians. Our school outreach has continued on topics such as WW2 and local community history. Family history day with afternoon tea and a showing of the Nungate memories project in conjunction with Haddington History Society was a runaway success.

    Looking forward to next year we have another busy one coming up. We hope to be able to have our core photograph collection available to view through our website. We hold around 80,000 images of the County but with the help of volunteers we are digitising the parish collections, around 10,500 images, which include scenes of towns and villages, people and buildings from around the county.

    From January 21st we also have an exhibition at the centre to celebrate 100 years of the Rural. The Scottish Women’s Institute (to give it its proper title) began in Longniddry village hall in 1917. The exhibition will look at the founder of the organisation, Catherine Blair, its history and the modern SWI.

    We are also planning the launch of our poor law indexing and transcription project online, a family fun day in April, a season of lunchtime talks on the Broun Lindsay collection in the summer, two film festivals and a family history day on the theme of art in August. And that’s just a sample! As ever keep your eye out on our facebook page, website and East Lothian Courier for further details and events.

    Surveying up a Storm: War and Peace at Broad Sands!

    IMG_2246At the end of January, just as Storm Gertrude was gearing up to sweep across the shores of East Lothian, so an intrepid team from the East Lothian Council Archaeology Service was gearing up to do the same!

    After health & safety concerns were raised regarding several wooden posts noted in the intertidal zone down at Broad Sands, the Archaeology Service was contacted by East Lothian Council’s Landscape and Countryside prior to any work on the posts being undertaken, in case they were of archaeological interest.  So that is how, on a dismal day at low tide (the morning of the 26th to be precise), Andy and myself could be found all togged up, and, amidst a few courageous dog-walkers, making our way through the Yellow Craig Plantation and down onto the wind-swept and rain scoured beach at Broad Sands.  Under the cover of something occasionally resembling sunshine, and propelled by gusting winds, us archaeologists surveyed several archaeological features as we staggered, wobbled (and sometimes managed to walk) across the Sands.IMG_2262

    Despite the weather we left with big smiles on our faces (as well as rosy cheeks and steamed up glasses), as the survey produced some really fantastic and unexpected results! The ‘wooden posts’ turned out to be two large linear fish traps, comprised of a series of wooden stakes set into the sand, some just barely visible!  Excitingly, the shape and alignments of both traps could be seen against the stunning backdrops of North Berwick Law and the Bass Rock.

    IMG_2243

    As if that wasn’t enough, interspersed amongst the fish traps, and located further westwards along the beach, were several larger wooden posts and sections of barnacle-covered large drain pipe filled with concrete.  These features appear to be part of the WWI or WWII coastal defence system, and at least some appear to be aligned on the nearby WWI Pillbox, nestled in the dunes bordering Broad Sands.   IMG_2236

    The date of the fish traps is unknown – the morphology and materials used to make such fish traps has changed little since medieval times. Either way, both the traps and the wartime defence features make a great addition to our knowledge of East Lothian’s coastal archaeology, and give us an insight into daily life and local practices in both war and peacetime.  Not bad for a Tuesday morning in January!
