Just a few miles outside of the village of Beith, in the farming district of Barrmill, we went in search of a house which I believed was once owned by my 8 x great grandfather. To our absolute delight we found the actual house & found that he'd actually built it himself leaving a large stone plaque inlaid into the outside wall above the front door engraved with the following inscription: “Built by [my 8 x great grandfather] in 1736”. Left there for his 8 x great grand-daughter to find over 275 years later!
