History of the Counties of Ayr and Wigton, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from History of the Counties of Ayr and Wigton, Vol. 3: Cuninghame The District of Cuninghame was originally divided into two Bailiewicks - Cuninghame constituting the southern, and Largs the northern. This arrangement continued till the reign of Robert II., when Largs became united to Cuninghame. Irvine was the head town of the Bailiewick down to the abolition of feudal jurisdictions in 1746, and there the Courts were held. Some of the Bailie Court Books of Cuninghame are still preserved - two in the Register House, Edinburgh, and one in the County Buildings at Ayr. So far as we are aware, there are none at Irvine. The Sasine Books of the County seem to have been kept at Irvine and Kilmarnock as well as Ayr. Latterly the Sheriffdom has been divided, a Sheriff Court being now held in Kilmarnock. Cuninghame is understood to have derived its name from the Celtic Cuninghame a milk-pail or churn - the district having been celebrated from a remote period for its dairy produce and general fertility. The combination of a Gaelic substantive with a Saxon termination, may be accounted for by the circumstance that the name, so far as we are aware, does not occur in any document prior to the adoption of patronymics, after the accession of Edgar to the throne of Scotland, or what Chalmers calls the Saxon period of our history. Ham or hame may have been added to the original Cuinneag, as signifying the place of the Cuinneags. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
