Happy Birthday Jim McCartney!

James “Jim” McCartney (7 July 1902 – 18 March 1976) was the father of musician, author and artist Sir Paul McCartney of the Beatles and Wings, and photographer and musician Mike McCartney, who worked with the Scaffold.

Like many families in Liverpool, the McCartney family is of Irish descent. Jim worked for most of his life in the cotton trade, as well as playing in ragtime and jazz bands in Liverpool.

The McCartney family lived in council houses during the 40’s and 50’s, but Paul later bought his father a house called Rembrandt, in Heswall, Cheshire. Jim encouraged his two sons to take up music by buying instruments for them to learn, as well as improving their education. After his first wife Mary’s death in 1956,  Jim married Angela Williams on November 24th 1964, and adopted her daughter from a previous marriage, Ruth McCartney.
