Blaeu map of Quothquan

Year: 1654

The 1654 map of Quothquan by Joan Blaeu. The map does not indicate a settlement at Quothquan, instead showing Quothquan Mill (then named ‘Kothoon Mill’). This was shown at a stream running down to the River Clyde. The map also indicates settlements at Nethertown (Nethertoun) and Shieldhill (Scheelhil).

Blaeu was a Dutch cartographer born in Alkmaar, the son of cartographer Willem Blaeu.
