I was wrong the Castle
of Merton is in Mochrum
Still Standing -
I had no hesitation in writing the word Castle,
it being termed so by
each of these authorities
given, living on the land
from their infancy their ages
will be about 50, 70, 75 years.
I think the authority [record] of
Session may Stand good
as thinking prisoners being removed from Castle ward
to Myrton, Ph [Parish] of Penninghame.
To Lieut [Lieutenant] W.D. Gosset Royal Engineers.
[Signed] D. Kildoyle
