About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:
"Margaret stitched a truly adorable sampler with a rich palette of colours. There is so much to excite your needle. The reverse of the sampler revealed Margaret’s story as told by her great-granddaughter EBG Allison on September 10, 1998.
Margaret or Maggie was twelve years old when she stitched her sampler at the Female School in Ardrossan. This historic harbour town is located in Ayrshire, 30 miles from Glasgow and has sandy beaches with beautiful views over the Firth of Clyde. Shipbuilding was one of Ardrossan’s important industries in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Maggie was born on March 4, 1854 at Saltcoats, Ayrshire, Scotland. She was the natural daughter of Margaret Newall, an Irish farm servant. Her father is unknown but could have been Peter Benson, a dock labourer, whom Margaret Newall later married."
