‘MASSEYS OF TRACTORS’ SOLD TO ARRAN…WERE YOUR RELATIVES PART OF SCOTLAND’S AGRICULTURAL HISTORY?

September 7, 2011

The Original Hamilton Brothers Sales Ledger from 1946

The Original Hamilton Brothers Sales Ledger from 1946

When we unearthed the original handwritten Hamilton Brothers sales ledger recently cataloguing every sale since we opened in 1946, little did we realise the impact it would have on Scotland’s agricultural history! A couple of gems include the sale of our first tractor, a Ferguson TE20 for a mere £343 to Ranfurly Golf Club on 18th December 1946, Registration Number DHS112. Does anyone know if this tractor is still in existence? If you know, then let us know! Also on record is a certain Massey FE35 De Luxe tractor purchased on 12th April, 1960 by Mr J. MacAlister, Sliddery, Arran. You guessed it! This gleam machine now owned by Colin Hutton won this year’s Vintage Tractor Competition at the Arran Show.

Talking of the Arran Show, for a bit of fun this year we decided to put together a  ‘Massey Down the Decades’ document of every Ferguson and Massey tractor sold to Arran since 1946. Not only did it pull the crowds, it also stirred up a lot of fond memories from relatives and friends of previous Massey owners. Many of you expressed an interest in having a copy of the document, so for a trip down memory lane, simply click on the link to download your own personal copy.

If you have a particular memory you would like to share with us, please e-mail us and we will upload your stories to our website. We look forward to hearing from you!
