The Farms - Isle of Whithorn's Agricultural History

From the farm names, it would appear that the settlements date from early times. Isle Farm was obviously named after the village; Cutreoch may well come from a mix of Britonic/ Gaelic and mean “cold cottage”. Boyach (originally Buyoch ) - yellow field (possibly because of the yellow whins [gorse] which grow around the farm). Stannock possibly meant stone house but interestingly was previously known as Stennock Corbett and part of Stennock Balconnell. Review: 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson. Jordan B.

Review: 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson

Peterson’s 12 Rules For Life: An antidote to chaos was born as an answer to a question posed on the internet discussion forum Quora: “What are the most valuable things everyone should know?” Peterson, a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, proposed a list of maxims, which became popular with Quora users.

A Glance at Galloway and its Agriculture - Past and Present. This interesting article about past country life in Galloway is taken from the Journal of Agriculture July 1865 to April 1866. WE are not sure that people in general know exactly what and where Galloway is. Some think it simply an alternative name for Kirkcudbright, others for Wigtownshire, whilst portions of Dumfriesshire are sometimes confounded with it. In ancient days, indeed, when it was a sort of half-independent kingdom, its boundaries were considerably wider than during its modern history, but it still comprises the shire of Wigtown and the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright. It is to the latter of these two counties that for the present we purpose chiefly to call the attention of the reader.

They used a converted warehouse in Dock Street, north of the London Docks. At first, the Asylum provided shelter and food for shipwrecked and destitute seamen, but it soon became clear that many other seamen in the port needed help.

The general aspect of the parish is mountainous, and may be said to be formed of a succession of hills and valleys; and the ridges of mountains, which rise rapidly from the shore and intersect the parish, have a very picturesque effect, particularly from Wigtownshire.... There are several fisheries in this parish upon the Cree, and in the bay, principally for Salmon, spirlings, founders, herring, &c.; and the nets employed for taking them are stake-nets, bag-nets, draught-nets...
