For layout of village see OSA v.II p.120 Though no individual
building can be accounted in Category A, the village as a
whole must be regarded very definitely as Category A. It is
a most important example of late 18th century planning and
its buildings are in complete scale and harmony with the lay
out. The plan was conceived in 1769 by Alexander Montgomery
10th Earl of Eglinton (d.1769) and finished by the 11th Earl
about 1797. With a few exceptions all the houses date from
this period or shortly after it. The Eglinton family sold
Eaglesham to A<> & Jas Gilmour in 18<> The Cotton Mill on
the Common was destroyed by fire in 1876. The Gilmours had a
mansion Eaglesham House, one mile to North of Village.
