William farmed Harwood, Muirglen, Langburnshiels, Clifton Park. He bought Lawrie & Symington (Auctioneers) in 1886, which, shortly thereafter, was closed to all sales of cattle and sheep because of Foot & Mouth disease for 42 weeks. He died in 1929 at Muirglen. He invented the Thistle Milking Machine, and a new method of refrigerating meat, opening up the importation of carcasses from the antipodes.
