Kirkfield

   KIRKFIELD, lately an ecclesiastical district, in the parish of Gorbals, within the jurisdiction of Glasgow, county of Lanark; containing 2835 inhabitants. This place, which is situated on the south bank of the river Clyde, is inhabited principally by persons employed in the several factories connected with the city of Glasgow. The parish, which was of moderate extent, was separated for quoad sacra purposes, by act of the General Assembly in 1834: the ecclesiastical affairs are under the presbytery of Glasgow and synod of Glasgow and Ayr. The minister's stipend is £150, without either glebe or manse, and is paid from the seat rents by the proprietors of the church, who are patrons. The church, originally the parish church of Gorbals, and subsequently a chapel of ease, was purchased by the proprietors in 1813, at a cost of £1200, and contains 1023 sittings. There are places of worship for members of the Free Church, and of the United Secession.
