Thread Name: Burns lyric query - 'And All That"
Subject: RE: Burns lyric query
ABCD- interesting that you should bring up the name Glenconner in a
Burns related thread. These Glenconners are the descendants of a
Tennant, Auld Glenconner, from the name of his farm, who was a friend
of the Burns family.
Auld Glenconners descendants made a fortune from chemicals at their
factory in Glasgow and bought into the landed gentry.
Lord Glenconner was a very close "friend" of Charlies aunt Maggy. Are
you hinting at a closer connection?
