Item 1 of 1Pollok House, including lodgesColvin:
The house was built for Sir John Maxwell 1747-52. A memorandum among the Maxwell Papers in the Mitchell Library refers (3 June 1734) to the promise of 'Mr Adams Architect' to 'finish the plan of a house for me' and W Fraser (1863) states that Adam made a design for the house in 1737. But nothing was done for ten years and there is no evidence that the design adopted in 1747 was the one made in 1737. However the house has features characteristic of Adam;s work, and the elevation has affinities with an unexecuted design for Mellerstain attributed to Adam. If the design is his, its execution would presumably have devolved on his son after his death in 1748.
