From David Devereux – 18 July 2020
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.
