Archaeological Notes

NS33NW 7 c. 317 387

There was a house of Carmelite (white) Friars at Irvine, founded by one of the Fullertons of Fullerton. Though the earliest extant reference to it occurs in 1335, it may have been established before 1293. Its property was given to the Royal School of Irvine in 1572 by James VI.

(Area NS 317 387) No trace remains of the building or of the nearby mansion of the Fullertons (NS33NW 25). When the ground was laid out for building some years ago, the foundations of the convent walls were discovered about 50 yards west of the old place of Fullarton.
