1: Glasgow Post Office Directory, 1909–10, p. 446. McLean was the son-in-law of another practice client, Finlay Bell, who had commissioned considerable additions and alterations to his Ayrshire house, Monktonmiln, seven to nine years earlier. McLean, his wife Lizzie and their three children lived at Monktonmiln for several years until at least the time of the 1911 census.
