Maryhill

   MARYHILL, lately a quoad sacra parish, in the parish of Barony, suburbs of the city of Glasgow, county of Lanark; containing 3233 inhabitants, of whom 2552 are in the village. This district was for all ecclesiastical purposes separated in 1834, by the General Assembly, from the Barony parish, within which, however, it is now again included; it is about three miles in length and two in breadth, and consists of a large village and a rural district. The village is chiefly in habited by persons employed in power-loom weaving and calico-printing, for which latter large printfields have been established, and by ship-carpenters, iron-founders, and colliers. The parish was in the presbytery of Glasgow and synod of Glasgow and Ayr; and the minister's stipend was £150, paid from the seat-rents and collections by the managers and subscribers, who were patrons. There was neither manse nor glebe. The church was erected in 1826, at an expense of £1455, partly by subscription, towards which Lady Grace Douglas contributed £500; it is a neat structure, the body containing 542 sittings, to which, by the erection of a gallery, 400 were added in 1837. A parochial school is maintained; the master has a salary of £12. 16. 8., with a large schoolroom and comfortable dwelling-house, and the fees, amounting to £70. There are various other schools, in which together more than 300 children receive instruction.
