Notes on the way through Ayrshire - 100 years ago  


The town of HURLFORD stands on the left bank of the Irvine, less than two miles east of Riccarton. It has a railway station; Established, Free, and Roman Catholic Churches; a large endowed public school; a post office, with telegraph, money order, and savings bank departments; and shops. 

Hurlford 1846

HURLFORD, a village, in the parish of Riccarton, district of Kyle, county of Ayr, 1 mile (E. S. E.) from Kilmarnock; containing 371 inhabitants. This place is seated on the south bank of the river Irvine, over which is a good and substantial bridge, that has lately undergone extensive alteration and repair. The population is chiefly engaged in the coal-works in operation in the parish. The great high-road from Ayr to Edinburgh intersects the village. There is a school, of which the master has a free house and garden, and for which the ground was given by the Duke of Portland.
