OS1/21/10/1A CARMUNNOCK Carmunnock Old and New Statistical accounts of the Parish Revd [Reverend] Mr Storrie Minister of the Parish Chalmer's Caledonia Johnston's County Map Sherffi's List of Meresmen 010; 016 "The parish of Carmunnock, or Carmannock as it is written in ancient records, is situated in the County of Lanark, presbytery of Glasgow, and, Synod of Glasgow and Ayr. It is bounded by the parish of Cambuslang on the east, by Kilbride on the south, by Eaglesham and Mearns on the west, and by Cathcart and Rutherglen on the north. The extent of the parish from east to west is about three and a half miles, and from north to south about three miles. The origin of the name cannot now be accurately ascertained. The most probable account is, that it signifies the camp town founded upon the slope or declivity of the hill; and the appearance of the village seems to answer the description. The soil in this parish is various, A very considerable part is of a light quick mould. There are several farms, part of which consists of a stony deep clay, but which when properly drained, produces excellent crops. There are other grounds in the parish the soil of which is of a light shallow clay mixed with sand. This kind of soil is very poor, and is seldom able to bear a rotation of crops, without being every year nourished with the most rich and kindly manure" Old Stat [Statistical] Account, [signed] B Bender 2nd Corp [Corporal] RE [Royal Engineers]
