17.—COUNTY OF STIRLING.

I.—COUNTY BOUNDARIES.

The county of Stirling had two detached parts, one being the parish of Alva, surrounded on three sides by the county of Clackmannan, and the other being a portion of Logie, surrounded on three sides by of the Perthshire portion of the parish of Logie. The county of Stirling contained a detached portion of the county of Clackmannan, consisting of portions of the parishes of Logie and Stirling. and a detached part of the county of Perth, consisting of part of the parish of Kippen. There were five parishes situated partly in the county of Stirling and partly in other counties, viz., Kippen, Lecropt, Logie, New Kilpatrick, and Stirling.

The following are the changes effected on the county boundary :— 

A. With the County of Clackmannan. 

I.—ALVA.

The parish of Alva, which formed a detached part of the county of Stirling, has been wholly transferred to the county of Clackmannan by the Order printed at p. 50. See County of Clackmannan, Alva, supra, p. 271. 

2.—LOGIE.

The counties of Clackmannan, Perth, and Stirling each claimed an interest in this parish. All the alterations on the boundaries of the parish are enumerated below (Logie, p. 282), but as between the counties of Clackmannan and Stirling the only change effected is that the portion of the parish of Logie which was included in the detached part of the county of Clackmannan has, by the Order printed at p. 50, been transferred to the county of Stirling. The following subjects have thus been transferred from the county of Clackmannan to the county ot Stirling :—

3.—STIRLING

Part of the detached part of the county of Clackmannan which was situated within the county of Stirling consisted of a portion of the parish of Stirling which was then situated partly in the county of Clackmannan and partly in the county of Stirling. By the Order printed at p. 7 the whole of the parish of Stirling was placed within the county of Stirling. The following subjects have thus been transferred from the county of Clackmannan to the county of Stirling. :—

The village of Abbey (Cambuskenneth), consisting chiefly of small urban subjects.

3.—LECROPT

The parish of Lecropt was situated partly ¡n the county of Stirling and partly in the county of Perth. By Clause I. of the Order printed at p. 51 a portion of the Stirlingshire part of the parish was transferred to the parish of Logie, and so retained in the county of Stirling (see Logie, infra p. 282).

II.—PARISH BOUNDARIES.

I.—LECROPT. 

See County of Perth, Lecropt supra, p. 247. 

2.—LOGIE.

The parish of Logie was self-contained, but the adjustments necessary in consequence of the peculiar nature of the county boundaries which run through the parish made an alteration in the parish boundaries necessary. It may be well here to summarise the changes, county and parochial, in which the parish of Logie is concerned. See the Order printed at pp. 50 and 51.

(1.)—Parish Changes.

(I.) The Blackgrange district of Logie parish has been transferred to the parish of Alloa.—See County of Clackmannan, Alloa, supra, p. 273. 

(II.) The Menstrie district of Logie parish bas been transferred to the parish of Alva. See County of Clackmannan, Alva, supra, p. 2?4. 

(III.) A small part of Logie parish situated at Keirfield, west of the railway line, has been transferred to the parish of Lecropt.—See County of Perth, Lecropt, supra, p. 205.

(IV.) So much of the Stirlingshire portion of Lecropt parish as lay to the east of the west boundary of the Scottish Central Railway line has been transferred to the parish of Logie. The result is to place the police burgh of Bridge of Allan wholly in the parish of Logie. The following subjects have thus been transferred from the parish of Lecropt to the parish of Logie :—

Place Description Proprietor
Gogar Haugh, Land, Mrs. M W Morries Stirling.

(2)—County Changes.

The whole parish of Logie, altered in area as above, has been placed in the county of Stirling. 

(I.) The boundary between the main portions of the counties of Clackmannan and Perth is the same as formerly, except that where the county boundary formerly ran along the road  between Alloa and Stirling it is now made to run first for some distance the one side of that road and thereafter on the other.— See County of Clackmannan, Logie, supra, p. 272. 

(II.) The part of Logie situated in the detached part of Clackmannanshire has been transferred to Stirlingshire.-See Logie, supra, P276. 

(III.) the Perthshire part of Logie has been transferred to Stirlingshire.—See Logie, supra, p. 280. 

(IV.) The small part of Logie west of the Scottish Central Railway line has been transferred from Stirlingshire to Perthshire—See Logie, supra, p. 180.
(Sheet 01 the Ordnance Survey maps of Scotland, one-inch scale.) 

(Sheet 39 of the Ordnance Survey maps of Scotland, one-inch scale) 

3.—STIRLING and St. NINIANS.

The parish of St. Ninians had three detached parts, all situated within the parliamentary limits of the burgh of Stirling, and all, rather wholly or partly, surrounded by the parish of Stirling. In order to adjust the boundaries of the two parishes, certain exchanges of territory have been made, which are fully narrated in the Order printed at p. 87.

(1.) There have been transferred from the parish of St. Ninians to the parish of Stirling :—

(a.) The detached part of St. Ninians; (b.) the part of St. Ninians parish, situated at Raploch, which lies east of the western parliamentary boundary of the burgh of Stirling;, and (c.) the part of St. Ninians situated at Forthbank, which lies west of the eastern parliamentary boundary of the burgh of Stirling. 

(2.) There have been transferred from the parish of Stirling to the parish of St. Ninians :—

(a.) Those portions of Stirling parish which lie on the right bank of the River Forth, and to the east of the eastern parliamentary boundary of the burgh of Stirling; and

(b) that portion ot Stirling parish which lies to the east of the Stirling and St. Ninians Road and of Port Street, and to the south of Craig Street. 

As a large large part of the area affected is within burgh, and includes numerous urban subjects, it is impossible to give a complete enumeration of the subjects. It may be desirable, however, to give complete description of the new boundaries of the parish of Stirling. Commencing at a point on the existing parish boundary in the centre of the old  bridge near Bridgehaugh, follow the existing boundary (which is also the burgh parliamentary boundary) up the River Forth to the point at which the old parish boundary and the parliamentary boundary diverge. Continue to follow the parliamentary boundary,first up the River Forth, and then, (leaving the river) west and south put Kildean, until the parliamentary boundary intersects the old parish boundary south of the village of Raploch. Then follow the old parish boundary, first south-west, then south-east, till it reaches the centre of the Stirling and St. Ninians Road. Then let the line run ¡n a northerly direction along the centre of the Stirling and St. Ninlans Road to its junction with Craigs Street thence south-east along the line of Craigs Street until it again reaches the old parish boundary at Aitken’s Mill, then in a southerly and south-easterly direction along the old parish boundary till it again meets the burgh parliamentary boundary. Thence follow the burgh parliamentary boundary north till it again meets the old parish boundary near the Forth, Thence continue along the old parish boundary down the River Forth to the point at Abbey Ford at which the old county boundary continued north while the old parish boundary struck east. Continue down the River Forth along the old county boundary to the point south of West Grange, at which it again met the old parish boundary Thence strike north-west along the old parish boundary, and follow that boundary till it meets the boundary of St. Ninians detached No, 3. Follow the north boundary of St. Ninians detached No. 3 till it again meets the old boundary of the parish of Stirling. Thence follow the old parish boundary of Stirling, first north-west and then south-west, till the starting-point is reached.

The following subjects are affected :—

(1.) Transferred from the parish of St. Ninians to the parish of Stirling (situated within the parliamentary and police boundaries of the burgh of Stirling).

(a.) The lands of Goosecroft, on the north side of Craigs Street.

(b.) Parts of the west side of Port Street and of Dumbarton Road, and the whole of Allan Park.
 
(c.) The whole of Abbey Road, the farms of Queenhaugh and Shiphaugh, and other subjects, especially portions of the North British, Caledonian, and Forth and Clyde railways lines, and of the Bridge of Allan Tramways.

(d.) Land and houses at Raploch and Kildean.
 
(e.) Land at Forthbank enclosure No 346, and parts of enclosures Nos. 34 and 348, as shown on the Ordnance Survey maps.

(2.) Transferred from the parish of Stirling to the parish of St.Ninians

(a.) Subjects within the burgh of Stirling, bounded on the north-wests by the Stirling and St. Ninians road and Port Street, on the north-east by Craigs Street and elsewhere by the old boundary pf the parish of Stirling.

(b.) The following subjects, outside the parliamentary and police limits of Stirling :—

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.
