LEVERN, lately a quoad sacra parish, in the Upper ward of the county of Renfrew; comprising the villages of Crossmill, Dovehill, Hurlet, and Nitshill; and containing 2490 inhabitants. This parish consisted of a southeastern portion of the Abbey parish of Paisley, an eastern part of Neilston, and a western part of Eastwood parish; and the district was so called from the river Levern, by which the lands are intersected. It measured three miles in its greatest length, and two miles and a half in its greatest breadth, and comprised about 2275 acres. The parish was formed by an act of the General Assembly in 1834, and, as to ecclesiastical affairs, was placed under the presbytery of Paisley and synod of Glasgow and Ayr; the patronage being vested in the communicants. The stipend of the minister is £84, derived from seatrents and collections, with a manse and garden valued at £20. The church was built in 1834, and opened for divine service in 1835; and a session-house and two porches have since been added; the whole completed at a cost of £890: there are 660 sittings. The Roman Catholics have also a place of worship.
