TG Abercrombie

Thomas Graham Abercrombie was born in Paisley, the son of a well-connected banker, William Abercrombie, who was of the family of Abercrombie of Tullibody, Clackmannan and his wife Robina Andrews Graham. He was articled to John Hutchison of Glasgow, an architect with Paisley connections, in 1876 and at the end of the apprenticeship he emigrated to the USA. In 1886 he returned to Paisley and set up practice with 19 10s advanced by his father.  Abercrombie developed close links with the Coats, Clark and Stewart families and was an enthusiastic volunteer, first in the 2nd Renfrewshire Rifles and then in the Argyll and Southern Highlanders, reaching the rank of Captain.

Redholme

Around 1890 Abercrombie took on William Kerr as his chief assistant  who stayed with the practise until 1902

Thereafter Abercrombie continued with well-selected assistants until 1923 when he took into partnership James Steel Maitland , a pupil of Leiper who had worked for Brown and Vallance in Montreal. After only three years  Abercrombie died suddenly at his home, Redholme, in Castlehead on 16 February 1926.

Maitland continued the practice alone thereafter under the existing name of Abercrombie & Maitland.
