Erected by William McOnie in memory of his brother Peter McOnie, Engineer, Glasgow, who died 12th December, 1850

Peter McOnie, of Kinning Cottage, Kinning Place, Paisley Road, was the senior partner of P & W McOnie, Scotland Street.  In earlier days William and Andrew McOnie were in business with their brother Peter.  When William retired from P&W McOnie, Peter took Mr. Mirlees into the business and Andrew left shortly after.  The firm became McOnie & Mirlees and at a later date Mirlees, Watson and Co. Ltd., Eglinton Works, Glasgow, specialising in the manufacture of sugar machinery.  William joined Andrew in setting up W. & A. McOnie which later became McOnie, Harvey & Co.
