The assessments for Goatfield, Drinliath and Gallanach in 1751 come to 5¾m whereas the 3 properties together are given as only 5m in Mitchell Library TD 219/24/1/1/13 (1698) and TD 219/24/1/1/20.4 (1703).
There were two Carrons, each worth 1m, but I have treated them separately because they seem to have been linked with different estates. Wester (or Nether or Lower) Carron is linked with Torblaren in 1564, 1632, 1633, 1654 & 1669. ‘Carren’ (presumably Over Carron) was part of the £5 of Ederline from at least 1608-1703. However ‘Corran Upper’ seems to have been with the Minard estate in DR 14/1/1 (Argyll & Bute Archives) of 1728-31. To add to the confusion the OS 6″ 1st edition Sheet CL (1865-71) marks Carron three times. Carron itself is where it is marked on the Explorer today and I have assumed this to be Upper or Over Carron. Lower Carron is also where it is marked on the Explorer but there is, additionally, an Upper Carron at NR 931983 which is not marked on today’s Explorer. I do not have an answer for this but suspect this latter ‘Upper’ Carron is actually a subdivision of a former ‘Wester’ Carron.
The Campbells of Asknish built Asknish House near the site of the former Campbell of Auchenbreck mansion in the 1780s. I do not know if they simply brought the name Asknish with them or whether such a name pre-existed locally. I have found no evidence except the 1240 listing of 5d Askol which may not refer to this site.
Knock/Cnoc na Gullaran
Knock is probably Cnoc na Gullaran which is on record from 1240. The references in Highland Papers II are as follows:
tres denariatas terre de Cnocnagoloran (p 122, 1240), (ie 3d of Cnoc na Goloran)
totas istas terras subscriptas, videlicet Knocnagullaran a metis de Ardocascuffer usque ad metam Kamestronireych, unacum lacu et insula eiusdem viz. unam denariatam terre de Derranerinoch et unam denariatam terre de Knoc alwe et unam mangnam [sic] denariatam terre de Monenyernich et totam terram de ….. (p 133, c. 1315)
(all those lands underwritten viz Cnoc na Gullaran from the boundaries of Ardocascuffer to the boundary with Kamestronireych along with the loch and its island viz 1d of Derranerinoch and 1d of Knoc alwe and one great pennyland of Monenyernich and the whole land of ….).
OPS II, I, p 45 quotes the latter charter with the spellings Ardocastuff and Kamestronireyth. The first name suggests Ardcastle which now only survives in Ardcastle Wood (NR 9491) but which was, in 1751, the 5m farm on the peninsula to the east of Loch Gair and facing Knock across the bay. Kamestronireych is presumably for something like Camus + Sron + Reoch which now takes the forms of East Kames and Middle Kames which are immediately south of Knock. Essentially Knocnagullaran is being defined as the farm between the other two farms of Ardcastle and Kames. However there is a slight ambiguity about how we should interpret the Latin. Is it the case that the 3d of Knocnagullaran should be considered as separate to the 3d then listed as the farms of Derranerinoch, Knoc alwe and Monenyernich? Or should we regard these latter three pennylands as being the constituent units of an estate called Knocnagullaran? 3d was a substantial holding and equivalent to 12 merklands under the Scottish reckoning for Glassary.
If we look at the later valuations for Derranerinoch, Knoc alwe and Monenyernich can we work backwards?
Darrenaneranach was worth 1m in AS II (130) of 1622 and was connected to the Lag estate. Langlands marks Dalnernach on the South side of the River Add between Lag and Craigans (c. NR 8894/8895/8994). It was sometimes linked with Dirrenacardach as 1m but in 1751 as 1½m. Knoc alwe is now Knockalava (NR 9196) and was worth 2½m in 1751. Monenyernich was 3m in 1728 and 1751 and appears in RHP 1194/1 and RHP 14644 as Moninernoch. It is marked by Langlands(1801) as Monarnich at c. NR 8994/9094. It lay on the northern bank of the River Add, upstream of Barrachuile. These three farms total 6½m and it is only if we add in Knock itself at 4m that we approach a total of 12m.
What about the loch and the island?
Argyll Vol VI No 354 records a crannog on Loch Glashan while No 355 records a possible crannog on Loch Loran. However Loch Loran is probably too small and insignificant by comparison with Loch Glashan. A more likely site is the ‘Island Settlement’ on Loch Glashan, described in Argyll Vol VII No 146, where excavations have yielded two fourteenth-century coins. (Loch Glashan has now been dammed and the water-level raised significantly). That said, it is worth noting that Loch Loran was spelt Loch Luran in 1866 and the name looks similar to the last element in Cnocnagoloran (1240) or Knocnagullaran (c. 1315). Knock has also moved since 1866. Then it was marked at NR 921917 which is nearer Loch Glashan. Now it appears on the Explorer map at NR 921903 – which in 1866 was ‘Scotston’.
Taking all the evidence together it seems likely that the whole 3d estate was called Knocnagullaran but this included distinct units at Derranerinoch, Knoc alwe and Monenyernich. The three pennylands seem to have stretched inland from the present Knock, running roughly NNW towards the River Add and including most or all of Loch Glashan.
Kilmory is an important site, both as an ecclesiastical centre and because we have early valuations which help establish the pennyland to merkland ratio in Glassary. Our earliest documents are found in the Register of Paisley Abbey which record the gift (in the period 1226-1250) of
illam nummatam terre de Kilmor que jacet super Louchgilp, cum capella Sancte Marie in eadem terra fundata
ie that pennyland of Kilmor which lies above Loch Gilp, with the chapel to Saint Mary established on that land (Paisley Register p 132 & further references on pp 133 & 138 for 1270, pp139-40 for 1268, p 146 for 1362, p 309 for 1469). See also Argyll Vol VII No 77 & footnotes on p 546.
We should treat the supposed dedication with some caution. Dedications to St Mary often turn out to have been to St Maelrubha instead and the variety of spellings in early documents only add to the confusion. We have Kilmor (1226-1250), Kilmorre (1410), Kilmorich (1593, 1630), Kilmorie (1594-5, 1631, 1636), Kilmorry (1751) and Kilmory today. The name Kilmorich also suggests Kilmorich, Loch Fyne, as a possible parallel. Nevertheless, whatever the dedication, it is clearly established that Kilmory was 1d or 4 merklands. The estate was mapped by Hugh Brown in RHP 1193/1 of May 1816. One of the boundaries is also mentioned in a charter of 1410 printed in Highland Papers IV p 235.
Kilchoan is problematic. It appears regularly in the Maclachlan documents as part of their estate in Glassary. It is listed between Dunamuck and Achnashelloch in the sequence of properties. One interpretation is simply to say that this is the Kilchoan in Ardskeodnish (NR 8096) which for some reason belonged to the Maclachlans. We can support this by arguing that Glassary was more extensive in former times (it included Glennan and possibly Barsloisnoch). In addition our earliest documents from the Duntroon estate in Ardskeodnish date from 1422 and 1466 and both specifically exclude the 1d Kilchoan. Was this because it already belonged to the MacLachlans? By 1609 Kilchoan definitely belonged to the Campbells of Duntroon but a Kilchoan is still being listed as part of the Maclachan estate.
There is however an alternative explanation which is to regard it as a lost place-name. The evidence here is circumstantial but significant. If we look at the sequence of Maclachlan properties the implication is that Kilchoan was near Dunadd, Barnakill, Dunamuck and Achnashelloch which all lie between the River Add and the Crinan Canal. This is at the very heart of the old Dalriadic kingdom and we should not be surprised to find a ritual site nearby. (It is also significant that the new owners were a family of Norse descent). Kilmichael is north of the River Add while Kilmory, Lochgilphead, is some distance to the SE. To travel to Kilchoan, Ardskeodnish, would have meant crossing the Moine Mhor and then the River Add. The only place-name here which indicates the presence of a former church-site is Barnakill, the barr or hillock of the church. (This refers to the higher ground on the SE side of the Moine Mhor or Big Moss which lies between it and the River Add. The element barr is very common in place-names in Knapdale which is immediately south of Barnakill).
Now Barnakill has produced two Early Christian cross-carvings, one on a rock outcrop (Argyll VII No 14), the other on a free-standing slab (Argyll VII No 13). The latter is of the first importance since it is inscribed. Its original location is uncertain but in the first quarter of the twentieth century it may have been situated in the (probable) hut-circle at Barnakill which is described in Argyll VI No 348 at NR 824919. Was there a Kilchoan somewhere nearby?
Against this one might argue that there is unlikely to have been another Kilchoan so close to the one in Ardskeodnish – but then there are two Kilmichaels in Glassary only some 10 kilometres apart. The only other place-name which even sounds relevant is Glac a’ Connaidh at NR 827910.
H Campbell (Genealogist Vol 38 1922 p 72 No 6) refers to a charter of the mill called Mullin-Shirvan on Maclachlan’s lands of Calzenuchane and the three-quarter lands of Mid-Shirvan called Baronacht which belonged by ancient custom to the said mill (1559-60). AS II (825) of 1654 gives the value of Baronacht as 3s 4d (¼m). Killinochonoch is unlikely to be a kill-name. It is spelled Calzenuchane in 1559-60 and is more likely to include coille (wood).
