Pont map of Carnwath

Year: 1596

This is the Timothy Pont map of Carnwath from 1596. It later formed the basis of the map created by Joan Blaeu of the Netherlands.

The map does not mention Carnwath, instead featuring Couthally (spelled, in this instance, as ‘Couthely’). This area was the centre of the Dalzell estates in the area. By this time, the Sommervilles had moved to Ampherlaw.
