Parish notes

The medieval parishes of Lamington and Wandel were united in 1608 (OPS i, 171). The parish takes its name from the Quan or Wan {OSPathf. Wandel Burn?}, one of the 6 streams which run westward to the Clyde. The more recent appellation has been taken from the Hartshead or Hartsyde burn. OPS i, 171. The church stood at the northern extremity of the parish. The dependent chapel of the Cald or Cat stood on the Hawkwood Burn, near the Rammallweil Craigs, where a bridge was ordered to be built on the Clyde in 1661. OPS i, 172.
