    • ANDREAS PERSTON, fil. nat. min. Matthaei, Mercatoris, com. de Lanark.
      Brother of 7918, 7925, 8983; uncle of 14279, 14364.
      The Matriculation Albums of the University of Glasgow From 1728 to 1858, Addison (1913) entry 11216. Year: 1823

      Extract from: Notting Hill in Bygone Days by Florence Gladstone (1924), Chapter 6:
      "Among the first purchasers of land on the Hippodrome Estate was the Rev. Samuel Edmund Walker, of St. Columb Major in North Cornwall, who appeared in Notting Hill with the intention, so it was believed, of investing half a million sterling in house property. " He was not long in causing hundreds of carcases of houses to be built. …. Dr. Walker's scheme was of huge proportions ….
      The failure of Overend and Gurney's Bank in 1866 seems to have dealt a crushing blow to the estate. Few of the builders survived the ordeal, and of those few the " efforts were maimed " ... Many persons, when recalling early impressions, refer to houses without roofs, or with holes for windows, black holes which seemed like staring eyes to the frightened child who hurried by.
      The row of unfinished carcases on the north side of Ladbroke Gardens came into the hands of Mr. Andrew Perston of 9, Kensington Park Gardens, and his sister-in-law, Miss Churchill, and a young architect, now Sir Aston Webb, P.R.A., put staircases into some of these houses. ……"
