23. - COUNTY OF LANARK.

I.—COUNTY BOUNDARIES.

There were two burghs and six parishes situated partly in the county of Lanark and partly in other counties, viz, the burgh of Glasgow and Renfrew, and the parish of Kirkpatrick-Juxta, Moffat, Culter, Cathcart, East Kilbride, and Govan. As above explained (County of Renfrew,  293), only a Draft Order has at the day of writing been issued regarding the burghs of Glasgow and Renfrew and the parish of Govan (see First Appendix). 

The following changes have been made on the county boundary :—

A. With the County of Dumfries.

1 and 2—KIRKPATRICK-JUXTA AND MOFFAT.

The two parishes were situated partly in the county of Lanark and partly in the county of Dumfries. They have now been placed wholly in the county of Dumfries by the Orders printed at pp. 100 and 101. See County of Dumfries, infra, p. 337.

B. With the County of Peebles.

1.—Culter

The parish of Culter was situated partly in the county of Lanark and partly in the county of Peebles. By the Order printed at p. 119 no change was made to the county boundary, but the Peebleshire part of the parish was transferred to the parish of Kilbucho Broughton & Glenholm.

See County of Peebles, Culter, &c., infra, p. 324.

C. With the County of Renfrew.

1.—CATHCART AND CARMUNNOCK.

The parish of Cathcart was situated partly in the county of Lanark and partly in the county of Renfrew, The Lanarkshire part of the parish was in two portions, one being a detached part of the parish, and the other being part of the main portion of the parish. By the Order printed at p. 115 the detached part of the parish remains in Lanarkshire, being transferred to the parish of East Kilbride (see Parish Boundaries, East Kilbride, infra, p. 303). The parish of Cathcart, thus diminished in area, received a slight accession in area through the placing wholly in the parish of Cathcart of that part of the road between Symshill and Croftfoot, which was formerly divided between the parishes of Cathcart and Carmunnock. The parish as thus altered in area has been placed wholly in the county of Renfrew. For details see County of Renfrew, Cathcart, supra, p. 293.

2.—EAST KILBRIDE.

The parish of East Kilbride was situated partly in the county of Lanark and partly in the county of Renfrew. No change has been made on the county boundary, but the Renfrewshire part of the pariah, which consisted of a small detached part of about one acre in area, has been transferred to the parish of Eaglesham by the Order printed at p. 96. See County of Renfrew, Eaglesham, supra, p. 295.

3.—GOVAN.

See Cathcart, supra, p. 293, and the Order at p. 95.

EXPLANATORY NOTES

1. The counties are arranged in the order as in the Census returns, "such that a zig-zag line beginning at the north of Scotland and carried to the south passes successively through every County". The counties have the same numbers as in the Census returns.

2. The subjects transferred are enumerated under the head of the County or Parish to which they are transferred. Thus when an area has been transferred from County A to County B, the subjects affected are enumerated under County B, and a cross reference is given under County A.

3. The names of subjects are those contained in the Valuation Rolls. In the description of subjects the term "farm" includes the farm-house and servants' houses, and the term "croft" includes the house. But where any of the servants' houses on the farm have distinctive names, such houses are detailed separately. "House" includes "cottage", and "land" includes gardens, yards &c.

4. The names of proprietors are in almost all cases those given in The Valuation Rolls of 1890-91. It is therefore to be borne in mind that those who are described as proprietors may be limited owners only, such as liferenters or leaseholders.

5. Where villages or towns are affected, the names of the subjects and proprietors are not usually given. The description of the area transferred is in such cases quite sufficient to show whatever and to what extent any subject in the village or town has been affected by the Order.

6. The Ordnance Survey maps referred to are those published by the Ordnance Survey Department on the scale of one inch to the mile. Those published down to this date (1891), show the Counties and Parishes as they were before the Order of the Commissioners came into operation. It is expected that, when the work of the Commissioners is completed, revised maps will be issued to show the altered boundaries, but the sheets of the revised maps will bear the same numbers as the present maps. The Orders and the explanations can be followed readily on the maps as published at present.

7. An ampersand (&) has been used wherever a County or a Parish has a double name, e.g. "Ross & Cromarty" or "Fetlar & North Yell".

8. In most cases it is necessary to read the text of the order along with the explanation, because the full descriptions contained in the Orders are, as a rule, not repeated in the explanation.
