Samuel Peden was living at 8 Belville Street when this postcard was written, probably in 1911. The text says "This is in my brother-in-law's parish. I hope Miss P. is keeping you all in order. With best wishes for Christmas from C. P. Grant." Miss P. would be one of Samuel's elder sisters Jeannie, Margaret or Lizzie, who would have been the women of the house with young siblings and a widower father.

In 1926, Samuel married Margaret Cochran, known to the family as 'Aunt Meg'. They had two daughters, Betty and Jean. At the time of his father's death in 1931, Samuel lived at 48 Lynedoch Street, Greenock.

'Uncle Sam' was mentioned in his nephew Nicol's diaries of 1938/39. He was survived by his wife Meg, who died about 1970.
