DENOVAN, a village, in the parish of Dunipace, county of Stirling, 5 miles (W. N. W.) from Falkirk; containing 104 inhabitants. This village, which is chiefly inhabited by persons employed in calico-printing works, is situated on the north bank of the river Carron, amidst scenery of pleasingly picturesque character, the effect of which is heightened by the graceful tower of the parish church rising above the surrounding foliage, and the handsome residence of the proprietor. The works were established by Mr. Adam, in 1800, and afford employment to about 400 persons, of whom the greater number are resident in the town of Denny, on the opposite side of the Carron. In addition to these persons, engaged in the regular printing departments, are nearly 200 children, chiefly girls, of whom some are occupied in attendance on the printers, and others in sewing and fringing shawls.
