In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Wamphray like this:
Wamphray, par. and ry. sta., Dumfriesshire, on river Annan and Wamphray Water - par., 13,133 ac., pop. 455; ry. sta., 5 miles SE. of Beattock and 9 N. of Lockerbie; P.O.
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 Wamphray 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 Wamphray and units named after it.
