Sheet 50.11 -- Parish of Dailly

"The name given to this parish, Daly or Dailly, has
"probably arisen from its consisting principally of a dale
" or valley, stretching along the banks of the river Girvan"
(Statistical Account 1842)

"The parish of Dailly, says Chalmers 'was anciently
"called Dalmakheran or Dalmaolkeran ** How the name of
"the parish came to be changed to Dailly is not known, whether "
"it was simply an abbreviation of the original, or arose from the
"place of worship having been removed from Dalmaolkeran to
"Dailly is matter of conjecture." ** Patterson's History of Ayrshire (1847
