Statement of Interest

A-Group with St Quivox Parish Church and Mausoleum (see separate listings). Originally called Sanchar-in-Kyle, St Quivox Parish church and Graveyard was originally in the parish of Kyle, which amalgamated with Ayr and Newton-upon-Ayr in 1895. The church has also been called St Kenockis, St Cavocks and St Evox. The majority of stones in the Churchyard appear to date from the 18th century, although there is one of 1657. The stone of James Mcall (1766) has a particularly unusual carving of Adam and Eve (Willsher).
