On the farm of Nivinston, in the parish of Kirkconnel, there was actually a room in one of the farm buildings set apart for mendicants, and known all around as the "Beggars' Chamber." The occupier of the Nivinston at that time was Mr Jenkins, a gentleman who belonged to Wales, and who, with his wife, was endued with the spirit of true country hospitality. It is not known if undue advantage was ever taken of the kindness they showed to homeless wanderers, but it is certain that Nivinston acquired a widespread notoriety, and that many vagrants availed themselves of the generous provision made for their comfort by the kind-hearted farmer and his spouse. Similar free accommodation is known to have been provided in Sanquhar parish at the farm of Ulxieside where an outhouse was known as the ''beggars' quarters," and also at Burnfoot, where was a " gaberlunzie's lodgings." But the " Beggars' Chamber " of the Nivinston was the most noted of these quasi almshouses. In fact, it provided not only a sleeping place for mendicants, but at times, when any of the gangrel tribe was seized with illness, it did duty as a hospital, the wretched wanderers receiving all attention from the kind-hearted farmer and his household, so that among the outcast the name of Jenkins became the synonym of all that was good.
In connection with this it is interesting to note that the present-day representative of the charitable farmer of the Nivinston has risen to high rank and honour in his country's service. This is Sir James Jenkins of Nivinston, Mannamead, Plymouth, who was created a K.C.B. in 1887. He is the son of William Jenkins of Nivinston, Kirkconnel, and grandson of William Jenkins of Nivinston, Kirkconnel, and Janet Wilson, daughter of James Wilson, and great-grand-daughter of James Wilson of Polquhirter, the representative of an old family that had held lands in the parish of Cumnock for several centuries. Sir James Jenkins is honorary surgeon to the King. He was bom in 1818, and married Sophia Pauline, daughter of Admiral Luckroft. She died in 1882. Sir James is an M.D. of Glasgow, and an M.R.C. He entered the Royal Navy as assistant surgeon in 1841, became staff surgeon in 1863, deputy-inspector of hospitals in 1872 and inspector-General (retired) in 1878. He served in the Naval Brigade before Sebastopol, 1854-5, for which he received the Crimean medal, with clasps, the Turkish medal, and the Legion of Honour. He was staff surgeon of H.M hospital ships, Belleiale and Surinam, in China from 1857 to 1861 ; he was senior medical officer of the Plymouth Division of the Royal Marine light Infantiy, 1861-9; of the Royal Marine Artillery at Estrey, 1869-72; Deputy Inspector-General of Naval Hospital at Bermuda, 1872-75 ; and of the Royal Naval Hospital at Plymouth, 1875 to his retirement in 1878. Sir James was as a boy, thought to be too delicate for the management of land, and on that account was placed under the care of his uncle Dr Wilson of Leeds. He had a distinguished college and professional career; and truly it may be said, apropos of Sir James and the kind hospitality of his forebears, "never saw I the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging their bread." No doubt the courage, perseverance, and talent of Sir James led to his uniform success; but still, it may be assumed that Providence had marked out for favour the son of such kindly ancestors as the Jenkins of Nivinston showed themselves to be.

WILSONS OF POLQUHIRTER AND JENKINS OF NIVINSTON. The Wilsons of Polquhirter were an ancient family who held lands — first under the Dunbars of Cumnock, then under the Crichtons. Polquhirter is in New Cumnock parish, Ayrshire, on the borders of Dumfriesshire. James Wilson — 1654 — left two daughters, co-heiresses. He had a nephew, James, who had a son, James, whose son James married Nancy M'Cririck, daughter of John M'Cririck of M'Cririck's Cairn. They had a son Homer (died 1807), who married Lizzie Gemmel; and their son James married Mary Murray, whose son William Wilson married Mary Ann Hague, and had issue — William Murray Wilson, M.D., who married Elizabeth Kells, daughter of David Jenkins; Mary Ann Hague, who married John Alexander Hudson of the 60th Royal Rifles; Margaret Wilson; Elizabeth, married Thomas Kipling, staff surgeon R.N. ; and Agnes Jane Wilson. William Wilson died June 9, 1865. His sister Janet married William Jenkins of Nivinston, parish of Kirkconnel, and had issue: — James — Sir James Jenkins, K.C.B., of Plymouth, for an account of whom see page 153; William; John; Murray; Andrew; David; and one daughter, Mary.

Whisky making traditions in Kintyre (source http://www.celticmalts.com/journal.asp?cat=49&hierarchy=0%7C4%7C9)
Illicit whisky making became particularly associated with Kintyre because of its relative isolation, the comparative ease with distillation could be hidden in sparsely populated areas and access by sea to rapidly accessible markets in Ayrshire and Glasgow. The following description is taken from the Magazine of the Kintyre Antiquarian and Natural History Society (Issue 19) and appears with the agreement of its author, Ian MacDonald.
A battle raged in the early years of the 19th century between the Campbeltown Revenue men and the local illicit distillers of Largieside and Clachan. The Revenue men by cutter on sea patrol and on horse back on land were the scourges of the small farmers, shepherds, cottars and labourers who, unable to pay high rents demanded by their superiors and landlords turned to the illicit manufacture of whisky and smuggling. The glens of Kintyre with their pure water and secluded lands were ideal sites for the stills. In 1792 there were five licensed distillers in Kilcalmonell parish and three in neighbouring Killean parish. Following a steep rise in rents in Loup and Balnalill Estates in 1806 virtually every farmer turned to smuggling as an additional source of income.
A typical rent would be one or two 3-year old wedders (male sheep) at six shillings each, six dozen eggs and six hens valued at four shillings plus a sum of money which entitled the tenant to a seat in church. The tenants were also bound to cart loads of turf for dyking, grow oats and bear (a coarse form of milling barley) for meal, flax for coarse linen and give the services of a man and a cart free for two to six days annually. It was to Robert Armour, coppersmith, in Campbeltown that a large number went to purchase their stills and fortunately some old records still survive in Kintyre Antiquarian Society's library. Around Clachan the pioneers were Angus Gilchrist and Malcolm McEachern in Arifeach, Alexander and Donald McCoag in Loch Kieran, Gilbert and Malcolm McEachern, also in Loch Kieran, John McStalker in Achravad, and Alexander McAlester, Donald Thomson and Archibald McEachern, who formed a company at Dunskegg. They were soon joined by Gilbert and Samuel Currie at Lochend, John McKechney, Achaglass, Alexander Graham, Carnebeg, and John McLean and Archibald Milloy, Loch Kieran. The product being the only medicine of the times, was much in demand and a plentiful supply met local needs as well as being exported up the Clyde as far as Paisley from Skipness. As early as 1806 Duncan McNiven, a local merchant, was paying ,2 per gallon and accepting quantities from one pint upwards.

In 1815 John McTaggart, Neil McIlreavy, John McKinven, and Duncan McLean set up in business at Achapharic, an old township above the present Cleit Church. Their neighbours, John McCoag and Son, Beachmore, soon joined them and a striving still operated in Achapharic glen near the waterfall. The remains are to be found built into the bank of the burn and well camouflaged from the prying eyes of Revenue men of that time. The 1817 records show many larger stills and a list of new names following showing the spread of the industry. The main ones found were Alexander and John McFarlane, Auchnadryan, Largiesland, Hector and Finlay Currie, Courshelloch, Largiesland, Donald McEachern, Auchnadryan, Largiesland, John Campbell, Carnbeg, Largiesland, now in Garvoline, Skipness, Archibald McMurchy, Stewartfield, Clachan, Samuel and Coll McAlester & Co. Brantian, Ballochroy Glen, Donald McMillan & Neil McEachern, Achravad, Clachan, John McFiggan, farmer, Barr, David Turner, innkeeper, Barr, Neil McCorkindale and Edward McCallum, Barr Glen, Gilbert McEachern and Angus Bell, Clachaig Glen, Muasdale, Archibald McEachern, Cleongart, Bellochantuy, Neil Downie and Malcolm Curry, Drumore-na-Bodach. In addition over twenty householders in Rhunahaorine shared in a large still hidden in a tunnel in a bog nearby. This still was a major supplier for Kintyre, and also shipped from Grogport to Saltcoats in Ayrshire. It was the target for Captain Watson and Gauger Brown from Campbeltown, who raided the village every day without success. It was under the control of Dugald McLachlan with the main operators John McInnes and Duncan Downie. Eventually it was forced to close when Duncan Downie, chased by six Revenue men fled the village, never to return, turning up later in America. The shareholders too scattered, many emigrating to Ontario.
McFater, McEachran, McKay, McMurchy, McPherson, McKinnon, Carmichael, Smylie, and McMillan families, descendants of shareholders were found in 1880 when Hugh McLean, factor to Lord Stonefield, surveyed Ontario and the Prairie Provinces of Canada, on behalf of Kintyre Agricultural Society for further emigration. He found well-doing farmers owning their own lands, many named after the places their ancestors had left.
As early as 1825 the smuggling was causing concern to the parish ministers. The Rev. John McArthur of Kilcalmonell wrote to Kintyre Presbytery, asking for action to be taken against "The Thinkings", these being drinking parties held on Sunday afternoons by lower classes of persons and lasting throughout the evening until the following morning. In the 1845 Statistical Account he wrote "The peasantry endeavour to better their condition by recourse to smuggling. It is impossible to calculate the amount of evil this unholy and unpatriotic traffic is the cause of." The Rev. Donald McDonald of Killean wrote "Before 1821 cottars and day labourers supported large families on the profits of smuggling whisky, a trade which though lucrative enough was damaging to their morals. A smuggler could earn the shillings per week thus enabling him to keep a horse and an additional cow."
In 1820 a levy was imposed on all landowners and the proceeds used to apprehend criminals. It was paid out as "Rogue Money" by Sheriff Dugald McTavish at Campbeltown to Angus McDonald, the Sheriff Officer, there. Lists of criminals and wanted men were published twice yearly in the North British Advertiser.
By 1850 with the introduction of large distilleries smuggling being suppressed severely it was only carried out in inaccessible areas. The last recorded account in Clachan area was at Achaglass burn, where Revenue men surprised a party at work. The shepherd in Scotmill, Archibald McTavish or Thomson, shown on wanted lists, quickly removed the vital parts and ran off pursued by several Revenue officers. "Come back, Thomson, we know you", they shouted but he being fleet of foot made for Skipness from where he took a boat to Arran, then crossing to the mainland he remained in the Borders for almost seven years before returning. The last man to ply his trade was Johnny Blue at Ballochroy. The remains of his still can be found on the bank of the small streams running into Loch a' Vogart some two miles above the old township of Kilmichal. His family were millers at Ballochroy Mill for many years and his casks were made by John McKinlay, the cooper there. A descendant of John McKinlay possesses the small anvil used for making the iron hoops.
Johnny Blue made two brands "Moonlight" and "Daylight", the former being twice the strength of the latter. "Moonlight" was exported, being carried across Kintyre in specially made casks. In order to defeat inspections by Revenue men, John McKinlay made casks with a false bottom at either end. Both ends were then filled with butter with the whisky safe in the centre compartment. They had many narrow escapes; on one occasion having to throw a complete still into Loch Garasdale where it may still lie.
John McKinlay, widower of Mary Blue, died in 1894, whilst Johnny Blue died in 1895 at the age of 88 years. almost a century later the World's Press carried the story of his "Moonlight" and "Daylight" brands when it was discovered that a descendant of the Blue family was none other than President Ronald Reagan of the United States of America. His battle is not to control distillers, but to win control of Space. The illicit distillers were fortunate to have lived at a time when there was no risk of surveillance from space by Revenue men!
