Old Maps of Ayrshire Place Names

This link goes directly to the OLD MAPS website for an Ayrshire Index to detailed old maps of most Ayrshire Towns around 1860. You can explore out to all sides by using the arrows at the top of the page. These maps are ideal for finding the locations of areas such as farms.



The parish was originally known as Sanquhar or Sanchar (from the Gaelic "sean" = old and "coer" = fort). There are still farms with this name in the district. The present name of St. Quivox is believed to have been derived from 'Santa Kennocha Virgo in Coila" (a female personage of some local note, who lived in the reign of Malcolm II ). It has been found spelt as St. Kevock, St Kenochis, St. Cavocks and St. Evox. The latter could be found on local milestones until a few years ago....>
