OS1/3/54/1 ST QUIVOX [parish] St Quivox. St Quivox. St Quivox. St Quivox. St Evox Statistical Account Paterson's History of Ayrshire. Johnston's County Map County Voter's list. Occasionally written thus. 027 ; 033 "The name of this parish is now generally written St Quivox, but sometimes St. Evox. At an earlier period it appears always to have been written St. Kevoch. The name is supposed to be derived from 'Sancta Kennocha Virgo in Colix', who lived in the reign of Malcolm II., & was distinguished for her zeal in promoting monastic institutions. Extent &c - The parish is about 5 miles in length, and 3 in breadth and contains about 5000 acres. It is bounded on the south by the river Ayr, and on the east, north, and west, by the parishes of Tarbolton, Monkton, and Newton. Topographical Appearances. In general, the surface of the parish is level, but towards the eastern extremity it becomes more elevated & uneven. *** The whole of the parish is in tillage, with the exception of about 250 acres covered with plantations of various ages, consisting of the ordinary kinds of forest trees which are carefully thinned, and are in a thriving condition.*** Quarries. - there are several quarries of excellent freestone in the parish, and three coal pits constantly worked, which produce coal of good quality. *** The whole of the parish being near to Ayr and the most populous part of it forming a suburb [continued on page 2]

OS1/3/54/2 ST. QUIVOX [continued from page 1] a suburb of that town, enjoys the advantage of a convenient market for all commodities, and of a daily post. The thriving village of Whitelets is situated a mile and a half from Ayr, and the roads from Ayr to Mauchline, and to Galston which are Kept in excellent repair, pass through the whole length of the parish. There is also a railroad from Whitelets to the harbour of Ayr for the conveyance of coal." Extracted from Statistical Account. (1842) All, or most of that flat, low tract of country extending northwards from the village of Whitletts for about three miles, embracing all the sanquhars, was a bog at one time, and was called sanquhar-bogs, but such name is obsolete, the whole being now good arable land.
OS1/3/54/2 [Page] 2 Parish of St.Quivox "The parish church was built before the Reformation, but was repaired and enlarged about twelve years ago, and now affords good accommodation for nearly 500 sitters. It is situated near the centre of the parish; but the mass of the population, being at one extremity, are three miles dis- tant from the church, in which they have no accommodation. To remedy this evil, which had been long felt by that large portion of the inhabitants of Wallacetown who belong to the Established Church, a chapel was built by subscription in that district in the year 1835, which affords accom- modation for nearly 900 sitters. The General Assembly granted a constitution to this chapel in the year 1836, and Wallacetown has since been disjoined quoad sacra from the parish of St. Quivox, and erected into a separate parish."
