Largelagane (Lerigoligan) is the first name in the list of properties that made up the 40m Barbreck. OPS II, I pp 98-9 (quoting ‘Protocol Book of Gavin Hammiltoun’) gives a list of the 1m Largelagane and 25 other 1d properties which composed the 40m ‘Barbrekmoir’ in 1572. Now in both Craignish and Ardskeodnish we have numerous examples of 1d being regarded as equal to 1½m so on this basis the 26 properties mentioned should total 38½m. If Largelagane was actually a 1d unit then the 26 x 1d units would come to 39m which would leave 1m missing. I am inclined to think that somewhere in the transmission of this list a farm worth 1m has been omitted and Largelagane assigned the wrong value. The same document of 1572 goes on to refer to the 15m ‘which M’Coule Craginche of old possessed, namely, Largelagane, Barbrekis, and Turnald’. We know that Turnald (and Blarantobair) made up a 5d unit and there is circumstantial evidence that Barbreck was 4d (see table above). The logical conclusion is that Largelagane was 1d making a total of 10d or 15m as the ancient holding of McDougall Craignish.
The 1572 list is repeated in AS I (314) of 1650 and GD1/426/1/8/1 of 1678 although in both of these there is another omission, this time of 1d Auchnasaull. The list is probably repeated in AS II (1169) of 1664 although Herbert Campbell does not print it.
Misc(SHS) IV p 293 No 6 of 1446/7 refers to John M’Persoun, Lord of Dubpenyg. Blaeu’s map of Lorn marks L. Dupen between Ardlarach and Soroba at what is now called Loch na h-Ardlaraich. In RHP 31880 Loch na h-Ardlaraich is called by a different name. This is hard to read but might be Loch nan D(??)phi(?). Either Lerigoligan or part of Ardlarach was once called ‘the black pennyland’.
Soroba usually included Eilean Mhic Chrion (formerly Eilean Macnewen, M’Nevin, Maknevyn etc) and Eilean Inshaig. The value, including the islands, was usually 5m, 6m if including Duaig by Loch Avich.
This ecclesiastical land was referred to in a number of different ways:
Pennykill … otherwise named Kilmorie, (and) the piece of land called Darrak (1570)
Pennykill & Darrok (1580-1)
Pennykill & Darrak belonging to the vicarage (OPS II, II p 824 quoting RSS vol XLVII f 88 of 1581)
Kilmolrw and Darrag (1602), “called the Kirktoun”
Pennykill & Darrak, called Kilmorie (1626)
Pennykill & Darrak otherwise Kilmorie (1629)
Aird was more usually called Ardcraignish or Airdcraignish in early documents. Typically these refer to the 3m Ardcraignish with the islands of Resagphaidean (Reisa mhic Phaidean), Corresay (Coiresa), Reisantrow (Reisa an t-sruith) and Garrorisay (Garbh Reisa).
OPS II, I p 97 gives 1d Ardmygynse with the island of Rysa Macpaden along with 3d of the nether lands of Ardechragynis in 1412 (quoting Argyle Inventory and Charters). Unfortunately this does not match the document quoted in Miscellany (SHS) IV p 292 which only gives “1d land of Ardcraignish with the Isle of Reesa M’Phayden”.
Lergychonie is confusing. More seems originally to have been 5m, subdivided into 2 x 2½m units. However there are also references to More being 3m. I think Beag was 4m although we also have a valuation at 4½m. The 1871 OS 1st Series 6″ map (Sheet CXXX) shows each farm with more than one cluster of buildings so precise locations are ambiguous. Today More is west of Beag. Blaeu marks it to the east of Beag. In a number of documents both parts are linked together and with Grianaig.
