In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Troqueer like this:
Troqueer, par., Kirkcudbrightshire, on river Nith, 11,675 ac., pop. 5524; contains town of Maxwelltown.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Troqueer has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Dumfries and Galloway. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Troqueer and units named after it.
