In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Denovan like this:
Denovan, a village, a calico-printing establishment, and an estate in Dunipace parish, Stirlingshire. The village stands near Carron Water, ¾ mile ENE of Denny, and has charming environs. The calico-printing establishment is on the Carron, adjacent to the village; was commenced in the year 1800; and employs a large number of persons, many of whom reside in Denny. The estate comprises about one-fourth of the parish, and belongs to Forbes of Callendar.
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 Denovan 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 Denovan and units named after it.
