Stokienill

Hi there

Can anyone please tell me where Stokiehill is in Old Cumnock? I think it has something to do with the Marquis of Bute

The name appears on my fathers birth certificate as his place of birth, yet when I google it, nothing comes up. Hope the experts in Cumnock can help.

Many thanks for your time

Hello Julie,
I am not immediately familiar with the name. Could it be Stairhill? The Marquis of Bute was the owner of many properties in Old Cumnock and New Cumnock.

Can I ask what your father's name and year of birth was?

all the best

Hi Bobby

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. My dads name was Frankfor John Moore born 18/10/1928.His birth certificate says Stokiehill Cumnock. I wonder if this could be a house name? His father was Patrick Moore and he was a house porter. Hope this helps.

Hello Julie,
It could well be a house name. Perhaps if you post on the Guest Book at the Cumnock Living Memory web-site someone more local could help.

The web-site address is

good luck and let me know if you find anything.
