Re: Dykenook or Dykeneuk East Kilbride

The Valuation Rolls show it as Dykeneuk from 1915 onwards.
Owned by a William Watt and farmed/tenanted by different folks: John Purdy, Arch. Craig, Murray & George Dick, and in the 1930/40's a James Craig.
Are they any of your folks?

Hi Lizzie,
try this link for the Glasgow Herald archives:

I would be cautious about the Washington DC connection - the chap I found on a passenger list in 1910 was stated to be an American citizen, though born in Scotland.
