Carluke Family Names in 1751

This information is taken from the book Notices, Historical, Statistical and Biographical, Relating to the Parish of Carluke, From 1288 to 1874  See Pages 242 et seq
The following three pages name the families who in Carluke in 1751, lived in a scattering of farms and hamlets outside the main town. The Poll-Tax names the individuals and their trades plus the tax they paid. The actual spelling of names and places is corrupted  by todays standards and on the last page is a glossary to help identify them.  

Some places of residence are nownon-existent, such as " Moore,” “ Tipperknows," " Roialdickes,”,  “ Midlraw,” “ Lonefoot,” “Bankbrae,” "Hyedyk,” "Owerkirkton”, “ Park of Mauldslie,” " Kirkton-mains."
