A bit about Cartleburn

Cartleburn Farm has been around since at least 1851, as can be seen from the census cutting below, at that time it was a working farm with a family of four and a staff of four. All of whom lived at the property.

I can find no reference to an occupier before this. The property at this time was owned by the Earl of Glasgow. This makes the property in excess of 160 years old.

The Farm was at one time named Castleburn as can be seen from an old OS map
