James Gillespie GRAHAM (1776-1855) Architect. He designed the Roman Catholic cathedral churches of St Mary in Edinburgh and St Andrew in Glasgow  style. James Gillespie was born on 11 June 1776, the son of Malcolm Gillespie, writer in Dunblane. The entry in the Old Parish Register (OPR) for Dunblane gives the baptism date as 17 June but does not include his mother’s name. James Gillespie, architect, married Margaret Ann Graham, daughter of William Graham of Orchill on 30 May 1815. The entry in the Old Parish Register for St Cuthbert’s gives the names of two witnesses – James Robertson, Writer, Heriot Row and James Blackadder, merchant of Princes Street. Following the marriage he took his wife’s surname. Following Margaret’s death James Gillespie Graham of Orchill, architect, married Elizabeth Marjory Campbell in March 1830. The entry in the Old Parish Register for Edinburgh gives his address as Albany Street and Elizabeth’s father as the late Major John Campbell, 76 Regiment of Foot. They were proclaimed three times and there were no objections.

James Gillespie Graham of Orchill died on 21 March 1855 aged 78 years. This was during the first year of Scotland’s civil registration system when the most detail was recorded. The entry in the statutory register of deaths for the district of Herior and Warrison in the City of Edinburgh covers two pages. It records that he had lived in the area for 15 years, that his father had been sheriff substitute in Dunblane and that his mother’s name was Jane Stewart. The names of his three children from his first marriage are listed. His address is given as 15 Castle Street and his place of burial as Greyfriars Churchyard.
