"Glenavy Past and Present"
The following is an extract from Charles Watson’s "Glenavy Past and Present", 1892.
The prosperity of Glenavy was further enhanced by the mills erected by the Lorimer family on the farms at Glenavy and Edinturcher. At the Glenavy farm Mr. James Lorimer possesses a corn mill and beetling engines, under the management of two of his sons, Archibald and Andrew, which give regular employment; and at the Edinturcher farm there is a sawmill and more beetling engines; close to which is Edenvale, where he resides in a pretty thatched house, on the edge of a large pond, over which swans gracefully glide.
