Maybole HistoryMaybole has Middle Ages roots, receiving a charter from Donnchadh, Earl of Carrick in 1193. In 1516 it was made a burgh of regality, although for generations it remained under the suzerainty of the Kennedys, afterwards Earls of Cassillis and (later) Marquesses of Ailsa, the most powerful family in Ayrshire. The current Marquess of Ailsa lives at Cassillis House, just outside Maybole. In the late seventeenth century, a census recorded Maybole was home to 28 "lords and landowners with estates in Carrick and beyond."In former times, Maybole was the capital of the district of Carrick, and for long its characteristic feature was the family mansions of the barons of Carrick. Maybole Castle, a former seat of the Earls of Cassillis, dates to 1560 and still remains, although aspects of the castle are viewed as "of concern". The public buildings include the town-hall, the Ashgrove and the Lumsden fresh-air fortnightly homes, and the Maybole combination poorhouse.Maybole is a short distance from the birthplace of Robbie Burns, the Scots national poet. Burns mother was a Maybole resident, Agnes Brown.In the nineteenth century, Maybole became a centre of boots and shoe manufacturing.Margaret McMurray (??-1760), one of the last native speakers of a Lowland dialect of Scottish Gaelic is recorded to have lived at Cultezron (not to be confused with nearby Culzean), a farm on the outskirts of Maybole.
