History[edit | edit source]

Murdoch McKenzie held the license for the Stag Hotel at Learmonth.

In March 1875, his new carriage was reported in the newspaper:

A new description of a conveyance designed to afford convenience to persons travelling in the country, has been made by Mr L. Cutter, coachbuilder, Armstrong street. The vehicle in question is a light waggon, which can be drawn by one horse; there is a cover over it, and the inside is fitted so that travellers can sleep above the head of the driver and over the goods in the waggon. Mr, Murdoch M’Kenzie, of Learmonth, has purchased the new conveyance, which is a pattern of neatness and lightness, combined with strength.[1]

In October 1890 McKenzie applied to transfer the license to John Alexander McKenzie, however the request was postponed at the request of their solicitor.[2]
