On John Thomson's "Atlas of Scotland 1832" on the west side of the road that runs N from Kilmarnock to Glasgow via Fenwick, Rose Fenwick is marked five place names before Fenwick village. (http://maps.nls.uk/view/74400169).  Apologies for my non-standard method of referencing the location.

Thanks Istrice - nice to pinpoint it on the map. Looks like it's in the same area the Ordnance Survey today label Laigh Fenwick, around the junction of the roads now called Main Road and Waterslap (good name).
