One of the workers in
John Center's bagpipe business in the 19th century was Robert
Gillanders. He later married John's eldest daughter, Jane
Isabella, in 1893.
Descendants of Robert
Gillanders went on to run a bagpipe-making business in Edinburgh,
Gillanders & McLeod.
Robert Gillanders, a one-time partner in the
business died in 1997 in Dundas. He was a grandson of John
Center's eldest daughter.
