I see from the net that Kendale Hall home addressed as Keptie Road and part of Caenlochan Gds so it must have been part of CAENLOCHAN HOUSE that was built by Arbroath Provost Sir WILLIAM CHAPEL and Lady Chapel . Their son or grandson was Arbroath Provost David CHAPEL and he was boss of David Chapel (lawyers ) trading under the name of D & W. CHAPEL , Market Place Arbroath . This lawyers firm is now the "newish" offices of the Arbroath Herald beside the Pend in arbroath and next to the old Arbroath Guide offices !

The Arbroath Year book for 1955-56 shows David Chapel at GALLOWDEN FARM arbroath and also LADY CHAPEL resided at CAENLOCHAN , Keptie Road ,ARBROATH

When I was a wee boy in primary 2 I was invited to a birthday party for Mary Chapel at Gallowden Farm arbroath ..

Hi there, if you're still looking for information I can tell you everything you need to know. I lived at Caenlochan for 11 years. The information's not bad but inaccurate, it was built by the previous generation of my family. Be glad to be of any helpsmile

Dunno when it was built Marcol, but the Chapel family were living there in 1890 from newspapers i've seen.
I'd imagine the name comes from Caenlochan up Glen Isla.

Hopefuly rembrant will pop back to inform us more of the building.

An interesting article in the November 1881 Dundee Courier relates that a local man, Mr Michie, raised with the council the right of way that existed between Cairnie Toll house and Keptie that was now being blocked by the new housing built by Caenlochan house. The path went through Keptie woods and came out by the side of Caenlochan House. The result was after an investigation by the provost the right of way would be kept, but it had to be manoeuvered around the new development.

That is why there is a gap between the last of the houses at Caenlochan gardens, otherwise there'd be no Lochlands Drive!

A biography of the David Chapel who presumably built Caenlochan. He died in 1914.

Hi there, just got back to this after many years so can now update the information if anybody is interested. Caenlochan was built by my great great grandfather David Chapel, a solicitor and councillor of Arbroath. He Married Mary Ann Corsar, a member of the Corsar mill family. Many houses in Arbroath were built from the money generated from the Corsar mills, amongst them being The Elms and what was the Seaforth before it burnt down. Mary Ann's dowry from the this side of the family is what built Caenlochan. It remained in the family until I was 11 years old, that being until 1983 where it became impossible to manage such a large property. Many of my family lived there including my Great Grandfather Sir William Chapel, ex provost and Lady Laura from whom I inherited my name. Lady Laura lived there alone for many years and while my Grandfather David Chapel, also ex provost of Arbroath was at Gallowden farm. My mum and her sisters used to go there to look after her after my great grandfather passed away. After her death my grandfather moved in, with me included and I spent an idyllic childhood there exploring the house and the gardens. Many people think it was the Chapel side of my family, who were sea captains before they all became lawyers and councillors, that built the property but the money in fact came from my great great grandmother, something I am very proud of. It was built in 1865 and the architect was William Aitkenhead, a renowned architect who left his mark on many buildings throughout Arbroath. I grew up with large potraits in the dining room of my family anscenstors and was taught the history of them by my grandpa while having meals. It was a mixture of Corsar and Chapel. My mum who sadly passed away recently wanted me to carry on the family history, which I 'm working on and that's why I've written this today. I hope this information is useful to anyone who is interested. #128522;
