Notes

The name clearly predates the foundation of the Abbey on the lands of Crossraguel. There may well have been an earlier ecclesiastical connection with Crossraguel, which disappeared on its appropriation by the monks of Paisley. For a brief account of the foundation and development of this abbey, a daughter house of Paisley, see NMRS.
