In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Kirkfieldbank like this:

Kirkfieldbank or Kirkland, a village in Lesmahagow parish, Lanarkshire, on the left bank of the Clyde, 1 mile W of Lanark. Adjoining a beautiful sweep of the river, which contains a romantic wooded island, and is spanned by a three-arched bridge, it chiefly consists of two ranges of houses along the road from Lanark to Glasgow; and has a post office under Lanark, an Established chapel of ease, and a public school. ...

The chapel of ease was built in 1871 at a cost of about £8000, and contains 400 sittings. Pop. (1841) 1023, (1861) 1212, (1871) 963, (1881) 963.—Ord. Sur., sh. 23, 1865.
