Although Thomas Campbell McKean's family were from Gatehouse (his grandfather, Alexander, built the Ship Inn) Thomas was born in Manchester, where he worked for a while as a clerk to a wool merchant.

He moved to Gatehouse in the 1860s, and bought the Gatehouse Brewery from David Hunter in 1869 for £2,000 (a little over £190,000 at today's prices). However, he got into a bit of bother with the Kirk Session (he fathered a child out of wedlock with a Margaret Dalziell) and he decided to sell the brewery. It was bought by wealthy local land-owner Horatio Granville Murray-Stewart in 1874 for £2,200 (just over £200,000 at today's prices) and then tenanted by Horatio's butler, William Tomlinson, and Thomas Tomlinson, whose is presumed to be a relative.

Thomas Campbell McKean then emigrated to the United States, while Margaret Dalziell went to New Zealand to join her brother.

Gatehouse Brewery

Scottish Brewing Heritage website


The Gatehouse Brewery was built as part of an ambitious plan by James Murray to create a planned, industrial village on his Cally estate in the late 1760s.

He formed a partnership with John Bushy and James Davitts, which traded as the Brewery Company of Gatehouse and commissioned the building of the brewery, which was completed in 1771.

The brewery was offered for sale in 1781, but was unsold and the partners were bought out by James Davitts.

A number of proprietors and tenants were associated with the brewery thereafter, including:

Mr Archibald, who was recorded there as a brewer in 1822
John McWilliam junior, who was recorded there as a brewer in 1825
Andrew Kirk, who was a tenant in 1841, and bought the brewery in 1847 for £425
James Hunter, who bought the brewery in 1857 for £1,150
David Hunter, who was assigned the brewery in 1860 for £1,150
Thomas Campbell McKean, who bought the brewery in 1869 for £2,000
Horatio Granville M Stewart, who bought the brewery in 1874 for £2,200
William Tomlinson, who was a tenant from 1874 to at least 1878

The brewery was described as empty in 1884 and there is no evidence of brewing after that date. The buildings were sold to Alexander Stewart Campbell and William Black Campbell in 1904.

The Gatehouse Brewery was described as "a large 3-storey brick and rubble building on an L-plan, with a 2-storey dwelling-house at one end". The buildings survive and are now used for a mix of residential and commercial purposes. The well is believed to have been in what is now a builder's office.

A model of Gatehouse in about 1800 shows the brewery facing the street, with the tannery and the cotton mills to its rear. In 1851 the artist R G Kelly painted a view over Gatehouse. A detail from the picture indicates the brewery chimney to the left of the large cotton mill. The brewery chimney can be seen in the photograph of the brewery brae about 1900, looking towards the house known as the wine house. The former cellars can be seen below the wine house building.

Biography

10 Jan 1937122In a Works Progress Administration (WPA) "Biography of Rosalie Richard" given by herself and recorded by Minnie M. Cochrane in October 1937, Rosalie discussed the life of her great uncle Felix Poutre. She states that Mrs. Dominick Richard has a book which was owned by her husband (brother of Rosalie) describing a book written by Felix Poutre. "This book was written in French by Felix Poutre in 1884. Published by Beauchemin and Valvis of Montreal. It is entitled " Memories of a Prisoner of the Canadian State", in 1838. The copy owned by Mrs. Richard is the second edition.
The book tells of how Felix Poutre, working as he felt for the rights of his people (The French Canadians) "swore men in, to fight against the Queen" (Victoria of England) and was sentenced to death. Before he was captured he hid for three weeks in a hollow tree. His brother (Rosalie Richard's grandfather) carried food to him at night. In trying to cross the line into the United States, Felix Poutre was captured, taken to Montreal, tried, and sentenced to death. In order "to escape the death sentence, he played the fool, turning everything upside down in the jail" pretending to be insane. Different doctors examined him but as he was a large, strong man, and handled them roughly, they became afraid of him and finally put him outside the jail. Too smart to try to escape, he took off his boots, and carrying them on a cane, walked barefoot in the snow around and around the jail apparently trying to get back in. When night came he slipped away across the border into the United States. The book contains some quaint illustrations of his adventures.
Besides writing the book, Felix Poutre dramatized it and with a group of players, presented it in various towns in the United States. When Rosalie Richard lived in Fall River, Mass, the play was put on there and she remembers Mr. Poutre being entertained at her father's home. He was tall, over six feet, distinguished looking and always wore a high silk hat and caped overcoat.
