The ruins of Mattockhill :: Shared Description

The site is marked, as Chappeltouns, on the Blaeu Map of the Lennox (published in 1654, but based on earlier surveys), and as Marrockhill on Ainslie's 1821 "Map of the Southern Part of Scotland". The relevant OS Name Book, compiled in 1860, observes that the name Mattockhill was the one given by the tenant, by the factor, and in the Valuation Rolls; it records the alternative names High Chapelton, from an estate plan, and Chapelton, from a county map, but observes that those names were no longer in use. The Farm Horse Tax Rolls for 179798 have an entry for "Robert Paul, Chappel". That this is the same place is made clear by John Bruce's 1893 book "History of the Parish of West or Old Kilpatrick", which states that Robert Paul was the tenant farmer of Mattockhill in 1796, and that he was one of five local men who were chosen, on the 17th of July of that year, to serve as church elders for West Kilpatrick Parish.
