This broomstick belonged to Hamish Buchanan. He purchased it, presumably from Diagon Alley, in or before 1858.

On 1 September, 1858, Hamish used his broomstick to take his little brother, Angus Buchanan, to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, because Angus was a Squib and it was supposedly the appointed day for him. Hamish hoped against desperate hope that the faculty would allow him to stay once he got there, or that the school would tease some magic out of him.[1]
