Other refs suggest that it was there in 1851, so it must be on one of the maps.

There's a wee track that meanders from Auchenvey to the Auchenvey burn, It runs between White Hill and Auchenvey Hill. I'm wondering if it's around there. The map is 1895 so maybe too recent.

It's on the 25 ins map

Added  tongue in cheek - I wonder if the Wilsons were related to my Wilsons who frequented Glenlaggan and Dullarg ;D

Reading the full description I think Auchenvey is the farm house and Upper A is the farm land attached:

'Auchenvey and Upper A - A farm house and offices all of which is in bad repair with a farm of land attached . Most of which is Rocky heathy pasture in the occupation of Wm Wilson and property of Major Fletcher of Casock(?Cassock) '

Looks as if the description, albeit opposite Upper Auchenvey, is part of the description for Auchenvey.

Proprietor is Fletcher of Corsock.

I take no credit for deciphering it - on the Scotland's Places web site, if you scroll down below the page images there is a transcription of the information on the page.

I gave the transcription just before your reply, Forfarian. I think you might have missed it.  I'm so glad we agree  ;D
