Port Glasgow is a large town based in Inverclyde, Scotland. It is located immediately to the east of Greenock and was previously a burgh in the county of Renfrewshire. The origins of Port Glasgow go back to the construction by Sir George Maxwell between 1450 and 1477 of the "New Werke of Finlastoun", which became Newark Castle. At a good anchorage near the castle, a small fishing hamlet known as Newark formed, like other scattered hamlets along the shores of the River Clyde.
Trade in the local area prospered extremely quickly in around 1710. Newport Glasgow had the principal Clyde custom house. Through that century the town became known simply as Port Glasgow. Ships, mostly owned by Glasgow merchants, imported tobacco, sugar from the Americas as well as timber, iron and hemp from the Baltic. hese goods were then taken by road to Glasgow, as was market garden produce from farms around Port Glasgow.
