Mr John M. Easton

Mr John M. Easton, Past Deacon of the Weavers, is a native of Glasgow. Trained as a civil engineer, his active business life was spent in India. He was first engaged in railway construction. He then joined the Government service, and for some years was in charge of the works in a large military station. Some time later, along with a brother engineer, he started the firm of Brundell & Easton, railway contractors. Ultimately he gave up his Indian connection, and, returning home, settled in Helensburgh, where for a lengthened period he was a member of the local Town Council. To-day the Deacon is a member of the School Board of Row, and a J.P. and a County Councillor of Dumbartonshire. He is also an associate member of the Institution of Civil Engineers. While a Weaver, Mr Easton is likewise a member of the Incorporation of Hammermen. Source: Glasgow News, 23rd December 1911
