4 Maitland street was the home to two generations of Stevensons. No wonder that Mary Stevenson mentions Maitland street in her memoires, she was born there, as was George!! Later after John Stevenson and family moved to Newstead road, John Egbert Stevenson married Vera Dunn of 5 Maitland street and they started their family at 12 Maitland street.
Most of the old buildings in the area, including the monumental wash house at the corner of Lodge lane & Grierson street, have been demolished and redeveloped. Here and there you can still find examples of the housing but Maitland street has been 100% redeveloped and is now Maitland close.
