Partick

   PARTICK, lately a quoad sacra parish, in the parish of Govan, Lower ward of the county of Lanark; containing 3628 inhabitants. This place was separated by an act of the General Assembly from the parish of Govan, and erected into a distinct ecclesiastical district. It is a romantic suburb of Glasgow, about two miles west-north-west of the city, and is the seat of several public works. Within its limits are the flour-mills and granaries belonging to the incorporation of bakers, the lands attached to which they received as a grant from the regent Murray, after the battle of Langside, as a reward for having liberally supplied his army with bread while quartered in the neighbourhood. The village of Partick extends into Barony parish, and contains, in the whole, 2747 inhabitants; it is seated on the banks of the Kelvin, and a short distance northward of the river Clyde. The lands adjacent to it were given by David I. to the see of Glasgow; and the Hutchesons, founders of the hospital in Glasgow which bears their name, possessed a mansion in the village that had at one time been the country residence of the archbishops of Glasgow. The district is in the presbytery of Glasgow and synod of Glasgow and Ayr: the stipend of the minister is £130, arising from seat-rents and collections. The church contains 516 sittings, of which seventeen are free; and the patronage is vested in the subscribers and managers. There are places of worship for members of the Secession, Free Church, and Relief.
