Abstract


The Anglian settlements dating from the Northumbrian supremacy in Galloway and Carrick are traced from place-names, church dedications, and supporting historical, topographical and archaeological material. Their grouping reveals three `shires' with some identified boundaries. These territories appear to have co-existed with British occupied areas, presumably under tribute. Medieval place-name forms are listed in an appendix, and appendices also give the corresponding forms of British, Scandinavian and selected Gaelic place-names.
