The name appears on modern maps as that of a ‘suburb’ of the village of Kingskettle. Bankton Park is already the name given to a row of nine cottages here in 1796 (RHP4454). NSA (ix, 109) describes Bankton Park and Burnside as ‘appendages of the village of Kettle’, adding that they are both entirely new feu-buildings. OS Name Book (15, 61) states that ‘The district ... is called Bankton Park from being built upon a field of that name.’
