Maxwell Street
Maxwell Street
Looking north-west from the Westmorland Street crossroads. Maxwell Street is named after Jane Maxwell, Duchess of Gordon (1748-1812), who was renowned for recruiting soldiers for the Gordon Highlanders in 1784 by rewarding them with a kiss and a shilling. The daughter of Sir William Maxwell of Monreith in Wigtownshire and his wife Magdalen Blair, she married Alexander, 4th Duke of Gordon, in 1767. Note that Maxwell Street has not been cleared of snow, and is now covered with water and slush on top of ice.
