also called LANARK, former county and historic region of south-central Scotland, roughly coinciding with the basin of the River Clyde. Bounded on the south by Dumfriesshire, on the east by Peeblesshire, Midlothian, and West Lothian, on the north by Stirlingshire and Dunbartonshire, and on the west by Renfrewshire and Ayrshire, it had an area of 837 square miles (2,168 square km). Since the reorganization of 1974, it is largely included in Clydesdale, Monklands, Motherwell, Hamilton, and East Kilbride districts, of Strathclyde region.

Lanarkshire probably became an administrative region during the reign of David I (1124-53). The county was the scene of several notable episodes

in Scottish history. The Scottish nationalist William Wallace attacked the

garrison at Lanark in 1297. In 1568 [Index] Mary, Queen of Scots, and her supporters were defeated in the battle of Langside (located in Lanarkshire); this defeat led to her flight to England and imprisonment.

The battles of Drumclog and Bothwell Bridge (both in 1679), between the Covenanters and government forces, also took place in the county. Rapid industrial development began in Lanarkshire in the middle of the 18th century; it was accelerated by the discovery of large iron deposits in the 19th century. The county was in the forefront of the struggle to improve the lot of the working classes. In the early 19th century Robert Owen conducted his influential social-welfare programs at his cotton mills in New Lanark.

THE BROTHER’S PRIDE I believe made several trips to New Zealand.

The Trip we are aware of is as follows. Departed from England on the 25th of July 1863 Arrived Lyttelton on the 10th of December 1863 When it arrived at Lyttelton it was flying the Yellow flag indicating Yellow Fever on board. 44 of the 371 immigrants on board died. The ship was placed in quarantine on arrival and was that way for quite some time. I believe it got mentions in parliament at that time.
