Just a quick note to let you know that  ‘Carnellan’, Twynholm, is mentioned in the Kirkcudbright Kirk Session minutes in 1776. Two servants from there  – Alan McConnall and Helen McGown  – came before the Session. The spelling of the p-n is the same as on the Gillone and Ainslie maps. Good to have documentary confirmation of the place, but I guess a variant form of the spelling might have been helpful.
