Baldernock Farms


The Farms of Baldernock


The documents used below tended to conflate the estate of Baldernock with the parish. We should distinguish them – whilst recognising that the parish lay at the heart of the estate. As will be seen below, some of the farms lay in the old parish of Baldernock, others came to it from Campsie in 1649, while still others remained in Campsie.
