Merchant and banker. An early trader to Virginia – first as Andrew Cochrane & Co., and then (in partnership with his brother-in-law Provost John Murdoch, No. 50) as Cochrane, Murdoch & Co. Founder, in 1750, of the Glasgow Arms Bank. Provost, 1744, 1745, and again, 1760, 1761. As Provost throughout the ’45, and during the occupation of Glasgow by the rebels, he safe-guarded both the interests and the honour of the City; the greatest of our Provosts. A monument in the nave of the Cathedral records his merits; but his best monument is in the “Cochrane Correspondence,” published by the Maitland Club.
