012; 013; 018; 019 " The parish of Cambusnethan obtained it's name from the location of the old Parish church near the Clyde , where the river makes a beautiful bend. The prefix of the name is obviously the Celtic, Camus which was applied to the bend of a water and has in this, and various other names , been changed to Cambus(underlined); the adjunct to Nethan is supposed to have been derived from the name of some saint, to whom the church was presumed to have been dedicated." - Chalmers' Caledonia
