In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Polmont like this:
Polmont, par. and vil. with ry. sta. (Polmont Junction), Stirlingshire - par. (containing a small part of town of Grangemouth), 5512 ac., pop. 3955; vil., 3 miles E. of Falkirk, pop. 519; P.O., T.O., and P.O., T.O. at Polmont Station. Polmont gives the title of baron to the Duke of Hamilton.
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 Polmont has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Falkirk. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Polmont and units named after it.
