Hi Sancti.
Just which year are you referring to re. United Colliers Ltd. housing
My g.grandfather worked as a furnace keeper in Hamilton. Also his son William who was a coalminer in the 1871 census.
Can you imagine a family with 10 children living in those conditions?
We,ve come a long way thank goodness.
Mary.

The registers of Sasines record land transfers, and should give the names of the owners as well as older forms of place-names.

Hello Stephen,

There is a farm to the south of Hamilton called CARSCALLAN.

It must have been a large estate as there are several occupants recorded in the 1841 census:
Robert & Jean Smith (Farmer) with eight children and five others, also John & Mary Cross (Farmer) with one child and four others. You can fnd them on FreeCEN. The address has been transcribed as carsealland, but the original image is clearly carscallan.

hi all,
 thanks for all that info,
now i know who/what grossart was, but is his works accessable anywhere?
looks like the register of sasines is certainly worth looking at. a trip to the local library then, see what they can do.
i think carscallan may well have been as you said, leighton, unfortunately all my rellies must have moved by 1841, none of them there on that census
