Captn. [Captain] Bayly's Examiners have supplied
the name "Linn Water" for a portion of this
stream. The difference has been enquired
into, and "Linn Water" found to be the proper
name, as far as the stream forms the boundary
between the Ph. [Parish] of Dalmellington and New Cumnock,
From thence, the name of the stream is
Cummock Burn.
