NEWTON-RALSTON, a village, in that part of the parish of Neilston which formed the late quoad sacra parish of Barrhead, Upper ward of the county of Renfrew; containing 893 inhabitants. This place, and Dovecothall, may be considered as parts of the populous and flourishing village of Barrhead, situated on the stream of the Levern, in the north-east portion of the parish. Its population participates in the manufactures of the district, consisting of cotton spinning and weaving, and printing, bleaching, and dyeing, all of which are extensively carried on, principally for the Glasgow and Paisley markets.
