Butt of Lewis Lighthouse Keepers

I just realised that, although I earlier described the career of the first Keeper, I hadn’t completed the list.
Here are, in brief, the men who manned the lighthouse from 1871-1901:

1871
George Edgar, 53, Principal Light Keeper, Head, b. Portpatrick, Wigtownshire
John Tulloch, 35, Assistant Light Keeper, Head, b. North Ronaldsay, Orkney

1881
George Edgar, 63, Principal Light Keeper, Head, b. Portpatrick, Wigtownshire
Robert Macintosh, 26, Light House Keeper, 2 Eoropie, Head, b. Lighthouse, Ross, Tarbert Ness

1891
James McQueen, 45, Principal Light Keeper, Head, b. Kilmuir, Inverness-shire
Robert Agnew, 31, Light Keeper, Head, b. Tobermory, Argyll

1901
Alexander Mccann, Light Keeper, Head, b. Kirkmaiden, Wigtownshire
David Budge, 38, Light Keeper, Head, b. Drenne(sp?), Caithness
George Campbell, 28, Light Keeper, Head, b. Port in a Loren (sp?), Argyll
