PORT GLASGOW is a seaport, and
parish, town, police and parliamentary
burgh, pleasantly situated on the south bank
of the river Clyde, 20 miles north-west from
Glasgow and 3 east from Greenock, with a
i station on the Greenock section of the Cale-
â– ! donian railway. It formerly belonged to
; the parish of Kilmalcolm, but in 1695 it was
f erected into a separate parochial district.
I; The town, which partly stands on the old
E barony of Newark, is neatly and regularly
| built ; the streets run at right angles to
j each other and are lighted with gas. It Is
' protected on the south by a range of high
( ' hills, and the lower grounds in the vicinity
I of the town have many good houses. The
; ' harbours are remarkable for their facility
I of entry and egress, and are accessible to
D vessels at all times of the tide. Contiguous
r to the harbours is a large graving dock,
which has been extended and improved at
I a very considerable cost, and there is also a
1 wet dock. The number of vessels enter-
ing and clearing the port are included with
I the Greenock returns. The number of
\ vessels registered under Part I. of the
I " Merchant Shipping Act, 1894," as be-
i longing to the port, December 31st, 1902,
[ was 22, with an aggregate tonnage of
!j 15,204. Connected with the town are eight
| shipbuilding establishments, some of which
>J are upon an extensive scale and employ
f,many hands. In 1902, 32 vessels were built
I of 63,805 tons. In addition 9 vessels of
f 16,697 tonnage were built for foreigners.
JThere are also saw mills, roperies, sail
cloth factories and engineering and sail
making works. The burgh is governed
by a provost, three bailies and five coun-
cillors, with a town clerk and other
officers. A burgh police court sits every
Thursday and a justice of peace court
on alternate Mondays. Port Glasgow, to-
gether with Renfrew, Rutherglen, Dumbar-
ton and Kilmarnock, forms the Kilmarnock
parliamentary district, returning one mem-
ber. The Town House, erected in 1815, at
a cost of nearly £12,000, is a structure in
the Classic style, and has a tower with spire
150 feet in height, and containing a clock;
the interior includes a council chamber,
court hall, police station, and offices for the
town clerk and other public officers. The
Town Hall, in Princes street, is a large
stone building.used for public meetings &c.
The Moffat Library is an elegant building
at the north end of King street, erected in
1887 from part of a bequest left bv the late
James Moffat, merchant, Port Glasgow, and
comprises, besides the library, reading, bil-
liard and smoking rooms. The Carnegie
Park Orphan Homes, at the east end of the
town, and erected from the same bequest,
were brilt at a cost of about £7,000.
Newark is a quoad sacra parish erected
out of that of Port Glasgow. The ancient
castle of Newark, formerly occupied by the
Maxwells of Pollok, is now the property of
Sir Michael Robert Shaw-Stewart bart. of
Duchal, and Lord Lieut, of Renfrewshire,
as representative of the Maxwells of Pollok
and Springkell ; the ruins are well pre-
served, and from the site a fine view is ob-
tained of the Clyde and its adjacent
scenery, particularly the wild and singular-
ly-formed rocky eminence on which stands
the castle of Dumbarton. Port Glasgow
parish church, erected upon the site of the
old one, is a purely modern structure. There
is an annual fair, which takes place on the
first Thursday in July, and continues for
three days. Birkmyre Park, consisting of
9 acrss, presented to the town by William
Birkmyre esq. ex-M.P. and situated at
Glen Huntly, was opened in July, 1895,
and includes two bowling greens, a fcotball
field and a quoit pitch. Sir Michael Robert
Shaw-Stewart bart. L.L., J.P. is the prin-
cipal landowner. The area of the civil
parish comprises 1,018 acres ; rateable
value of the whole parish, £61,836; area
of burgh, 444 acres ; the population of
the parish in 1891 was 14,624, and in
1901, 16,888, and the burgh, 16,857; the
population of the wards in 1901 was, first,
5,209 ; second, 4,034 ; third, 7,597 ; the
population of the ecclesiastical parish in
1901 was 10,150.
The number of electors on the parlia-
mentary register in 1903 was 1,879.
