Keppochhill Brickworks and Fountainwell Brickworks, Glasgow

At this time I believe that Keppochhill Brickworks was later renamed Fountainwell Brickworks. This is presumed from the OS maps I have been able to view. I have not seen a map detailing Keppochhill Brickworks but as the Fountainwell Brickworks were situated on Keppochhill Road then I believe they could be one of the same. Any evidence to the contrary will be gratefully received.
