Where is Upper Auchenvey in Kirkcudbrightshire.
« on: Saturday 16 May 20 07:14 BST (UK) »
Hi fellow researchers
According to an OPR Births from 1752, the birth place is listed as Upper Auchenvey in the parish of Parton.  I have perused many maps trying to locate upper Auchenvey but can only locateAuchenvey Plantation, a farm called Auchenvey, Auchenvey Hill & Auchenvey Burn.  However, despite spending hours scouring numerous maps with various publication dates, I have been so far unsuccessful.  This is the link to one map that I viewed (https://maps.nls.uk/view/74427638#zoom=6&lat=6911&lon=2941&layers=BT).  Am I missing the obvious?  Please help.
Best regards

Scotlands Places lists Upper Auchenvey but doesn't give a description of what it was and groups it with Auchenvey

Could it have disappeared by the time the map was published 100 years after the baptism??   I note there is the ruins of Nether Auchenvey to the north east

So if there was a Nether at some time, it's been large enough to split, the present Auchinvey will have been Upper Auchinvey. Saved lawyers from being confused! & Rootschatters?  ;D

It looks to me as if  Upper Auchenveney might have been consumed by the forestry  - a plantation to the W of Auchenvey itself is shown on the OS map.

My ancestors came from that area and some of their earlier farms do not show.

Could Upper Auchenvey have just lost the 'Upper' when Nether Auchenvey became a ruin?

... a bit more 

It's listed between Auchenvey and Auchenvey Burn , so it would be to the South of Auchenvey, I think
