NORTHCHURCH, lately a quoad sacra parish, in the parish of Lesmahago, Upper ward of the county of Lanark; containing 1800 inhabitants. This place, which is situated on the western bank of the small river Nethan, and on the road from Glasgow to Carlisle, consists of a portion of Lesmahago until recently annexed to a church erected here within the last few years. The parish is separated from the main part of Lesmahago by the river, and extends thence to the north-western boundary of the old parish, with which, in all its graphic and statistical details, it is identified. Its ecclesiastical affairs are under the superintendence of the presbytery of Lanark and synod of Glasgow and Ayr: the church is a neat plain structure. The minister, who is appointed by the male communicants, derives his stipend from the seat-rents and from the contributions of the congregation.
