Andrew Meikle (1719–1811) was the son of an inventive millwright. He surpassed his father by designing improved mills and windmills. His most significant patent was for a drum threshing machine that could be worked by wind, water, horse and (subsequently) steam power. Hundreds of mills to his designs were built on East Lothian's farm steadings.
