Valuation rolls record "Leavenseat Oil Co. per Robert Gray, 93 Hope St., Glasgow" as proprietors of the Levenseat (or Leavenseat) oil works between 1895 to 1903.

Successive editions of Glasgow Post Office directories from 1895 to 1903 list "Leavenseat Oil Company, Leavenseat, by Crofthead, N.B.R., or Fauldhouse, C.R., manufacturers of gas oil, hutch grease, &c. ; office, 93 Hope st., Glasgow.

93 Hope St were merchantile chambers providing a base for many dozen merchants and agents. Robert Gray is not listed at that address during the period, however the firm of "Gray, Mungo, & Co., merchants and commission agents, 93 Hope street." are listed in 1896
