Govan, an ancient village nearby and now also part of Glasgow, is rumoured to be named after King Arthur's knight Gawain. Pollokshaws and Thornliebank are the nearest ancient villages and were created mainly because of the textile industry. Manufacturing and printing of cloth were the main industries and formed the livelihoods of many of the villagers. Several immigrants came to the area to work in the industry: Irish linen workers, as well as Dutch workers specialized in beetling (a form of transfer printing). Adjoining Arden, the houses in Carnwadric are older and sturdier and have needed refurbishment also the same as other post war housing "schemes".
