NOVANTES.

Small N NEXT to Nidisdale, the Novantes inhabited that tract in the Valleys, which spreads a great way towards to the West; yet is so indented with Creeks, that in some places it is narrow, but towards the end grows wider again; whence some have call’d it the Chersonessus, or Peninsula, of the Novantes. But now their Country contains, Galloway, Carick, Kyle, and Cunningham.
