NEWMILNS is a manufacturing town,
situated on the river Irvine, in the parishes
of Loudoun and Galston, 2 miles east of
Galston, 24 south of Glasgow and 18 north-
east of Ayr, on a branch of the Glasgow
and South Western railway from Kilmar-
nock to Darvel ; it is (with Greenholm) a
burgh in the poor combination of Cunning-
hame and small debt court district of Kil-
marnock. It was first created a burgh of
barony in 1490 by King James IV. and
this charter was confirmed by Sir Matthew
Campbell, of Loudoun, in 1566. The
bailies are competent to hold courts, from
which there is no appeal, except to the
court of sessions, and in other respects
their jurisdiction is as ample as that of
most royal burghs. The manufacture of
muslins and lace is carried on here exten-
sively, a large number of hands being
employed in this branch. A Board school
was erected in 1894-5 at a cost of about
£7,000; there is also one endowed by the
