Details: As William Ogilvie had done at Merton, Peter Cunningham built a cheese dairy at Dalswinton. Cunningham's dairy had ten stone cheese presses, each weighing upwards of a quarter of a ton. A small cavity in the top end of each stone press was filled with lead, into which a great ring bolt was screwed. A press was hung by its iron ring from a wooden beam which acted as a lever, and was guided into the lid of the cheese mould or vat by battens fitting loosely in its grooved sides.

The deceased, who was the younger brother of Thomas Mounsey Cunningham (a well known name in Scottish provincial literature), and of Allan Cunningham, was born at Dalswinton, near Dumfries, in November, 1789, and received his baptismal names from that Peter Miller who is generally recognised as the first person to make use of steam in propelling boats. He received his medical education at the University of Edinburgh, and as soon as he attained the requisite age, was appointed an Assistant Surgeon in the Royal Navy.
