Notes

The NGR given is for the approximate mid-point between OS Digimap East Kilbride and West Kilbride, both of which must have formed part of the old estate of Kilbride. In this square kilometre is OS Digimap Ballymenoch, 'middle farm', presumably named for its position between the eastern and western divisions of Kilbride, and presumably also part of the same estate. The estate seems to be already divided by 1545, when its name appears in the plural form.
