KILMARNOCK,
WITH THE VILLAGES OF RICCARTON, KILMAURS, FENWICK, AND NEIGHBOURHOODS.
J^ILMARNOCK is a large and important manu-
facturing town, in the parish of that name, and district
of Cunningham; 65h miles s.w. of Edinburgh (through
Glasgow), 2I5 s.s w. from Glasgow, 12 n. by e. from
Ayr, and between 6 and 7 e. by n. from Irvine ; situated
on level ground, near the confluence of the Kilmarnock
water with the Irvine. Two centuries ago this now
thriving and populous town was a mere hamlet, depen-

broad flat bonnets, so long the characteristic wear of
the Scottish lowland peasantry, as also the striped
cowls which yet bear the name of the town. As this
business increased, the population augmented ; and in
the year 1731, the number had swelled so much, that
the parish church was found inadequate for its accom-
modation, and a new one was erected. Subsequently,
and for a considerable period, the staple manufacture
was that of carpets, and in this branch it yet stands
pre-eminent. In 1832 the ascertained product of this
article amounted to £150,000 ; it is made of every
possible kind and texture, from the plainest to the
