"a great portion of this district has of late been laid out as sheep walks which was formerly thickly inhabited by small farmers -- the most of whom are now poor cotters wherever they could find houses and destitute of means to defray their expenses to the Colonies particularly to Canada where they would in general expect to meet Friends who would render them assistance.", Kilfinichen & Kilvicheon.
