Initially, Dr Lumgair lodged with Mary Thom and the census of 1841 shows him still lodging with her four years later, living in between George Simpson the tailor and John Marr the grocer on what appears to have been the Main Street. One of the incidents that Dr Lumgair attended during this period was the fatal accident at Lundin Pier when the flory boat carrying people ashore from the St George steamer went down in January 1843. On 14 Nov 1848, George married Frances Hart Beveridge, daughter of the town clerk of Dunfermline, William Beveridge. By this time George was living in 'Largo Cottage' on South Feus, Upper Largo. The couple are pictured standing outside this house below c1870 (an image which appears in the book 'Seatoun of Largo' by Ivy Jardine). Here they would live out the rest of their lives.
"For the long period of forty seven years he laboured [in Largo], hardly ever a day off duty, though a great martyr to bronchial asthma....In his practice, his name was indeed a household word, and his bright smile and kindly hopeful manner, won the affection of all classes of his patients as his skillful care commanded their confidence. His professional brethren in this and the neighbouring counties recognised his many-sided ability, and gladly sought his help in consultation....An accurate physician, an able surgeon, and an accomplished accoucheur, his wonderful experience and his extensive knowledge of human nature made him a power far beyond his immediate neighbourhood; and his enthusiasm in this work, and his interest in the welfare of the people amongst whom he spent his life, will not be soon forgotten."
