Lilybank, Inverclyde

Lilybank is a district in the east of Glasgow. It was farmland until the 1930s, though small industries such as rope and brickworks had also been established. Neighbouring areas such as Belvidere, Braidfauld, Dalbeth, Dalmarnock Easterhill, Newbank and Springfield got their names from farms or country houses built by Glasgow merchants in the 18th century, but there seems to be no record of a Lilybank Farm or Lilybank House (at least not in the east end).
