OS1/3/56/1 STAIR Stair Stair Stair Stair Statistical Account Paterson's History of Ayrshire Johnston's County Map County Voters List 028 ; 034 Stair was first erected into a parish in 1673 for the accommodation of the family of Dalrymple of Stair, whose residence, was a great distance from Ochiltree, their parish church. With a view to this accommodation, that family agreed to pay three chalders of victual, one half of the stipend that allotted to the minister. The other half was to be paid by the parish of Barnweill, then suppressed and united to the adjoining parishes of Craigie and Tarbolton. On account of some differences between the parties concerned in the Transaction, & a wrong locality of the Stipend, the errors of the first erection was rectified by a new process in 1709, when several lands were disjoined from & others united to the Parish. This district lies between the Rivers Ayr & Kill, and is about 6 miles in length by 2 in breadth though at one place it is completly intersected by the parish of Ochiltree. It is bounded on the north by Tarbolton, on the east by Mauchline, on the south by Ochiltree; and on the west by Coylton. The river Ayr separates it from Tarbolton and Mauchline and the Kill from Coylton, throughout the greater part of its boundary in that [Continued]

There is only one loch in the parish and that but of small extent. ** The arable land amounts to about 3400 acres, and there at least 640 acres covered with wood. By far the greater proportion is planted Scotch Fir and larch constitute by much the largest proportion, and seem well adapted to the soil.** At the coal works of Drongan there is a collection of houses, affording accommodation for 15 or 16 families and another in the middle quarter inhabited by six or seven families; but no village properly so called. The parish is intersected by two turnpike roads, which are about 6 miles in extent ** The form of the parish is somewhat triangular. The church stands in the north corner near to Stair House and is about three miles and a half, from the one extremity of the parish, and nearly 5 from the other. A Site now convenient upon the whole, for the population could hardly have been chosen. The church was roofed over many years ago, and re-seated. Still it is too small."
