Ardmeanach
In the documents Ardmeanach is often divided in two and should be seen through the lens of its earlier pennyland assessment rather than its later merkland assessment. Ardmeanach A was a total of 9½d which is 11m 11s 8d although in 1509 it is given a nominal total of 12m. Ardmeanach B was 6½d or 8m 1s 8d but given a nominal total of 8m in 1496 & 153940. 11m 11s 8d + 8m 1s 8d comes to exactly 20m whilst the pennyland total is 16d which, at the conversion rate of 1d:1¼m comes to 20m also. So even if the two separate parts of Ardmeanach seems to have anomalies of conversion once we add everything together the arithmetic is perfect. (If we include Oronsay’s property of Swy we must assume ½d or ⅝m extra).
Sowecomyll/Suidhe Connell/Kilkawin?
There are references to 8s Swy or Suy in Mull in 1616, 1623, 1624 & 1629. This is probably for 8s 4d or ½d. It had formerly belonged to Oronsay Priory. (There is another Suidhe in Ross of Mull which was part of the Iona estate). Where was Oronsay’s Suy? In order to solve this problem it is helpful to look at what happened to the 16s 8d (ie 1d) land of Kilkawin which is referred to in 1509. This is probably the same as Keawtegan or Keltegan of 1390 and half of it is recorded as mortified to the church in 1509. I think Kilkawin lay just NW of Kilfinichen and since it disappears after 1509 I think the two halves may have gone to different neighbours. Half may have been absorbed by Kilfinichen whilst the other half (presumably the half mortified to the church) may be the same as Oronsay’s Swy. The 1390 charter of the eastern section of Ardmeanach specifies 6½d. This works if we assume Kilfinichen at 2d, Killiemore at 1d, Dererach at 1d, Ardvergnish at 1d, Uluvalt at 1d and half of Kilkawin at ½d. The other ½d of Kilkawin could be the church lands which are referred to in 1509 and which we can assume belonged to Oronsay Priory. According to Langlands, Shiconnel (ie Suidhe Connel) lay N of Knockroy on the west bank of Glen Seilisdeir (c. NM 4730). I suspect the old northern half of Kilkawin lay opposite on the east bank of Glen Seilisdeir – roughly where Achonnaill is marked in the OS 6″ 1st Series Sheet XCIV of 1878 (NM 485302). The southern half of Kilkawin may have centred on what is now Balevulin in NM 4829.
Forsay & Leremulach
Bradull
The situation with the various Bradulls is confusing, not least because both Blaeu and Langlands seem uncertain as to which river system they belonged to – the Forsa or the Cannel. Furthermore Bradull was subdivided and the divisons were called altrich or altach, dow or du or dubh, more and beag. (See Maclean pp 2021). Bradull was clearly in upper Glen Forsa c. NM 6136/6137 but I am not sure of its precise relationship to Tomsleibhe and Liath Dhoire.
Torosay
The Torosay estate is listed in ER XIII p 213 for 1509 and in RMS II (3440) for 1510. The first is a merkland assessment, the second by pennyland. Since they are almost the same we can make useful comparisons. The first list (18d) includes 1d Killean but omits 1d Ardnadrochaid, the second (18½d) does the opposite. Both lists include Glen Cannel which may not have been part of Torosay originally? (Without Glen Cannel, Torosay would be a 20m unit – like many others in Mull).
Duart
In 1751 Duart is linked with Ardchoirk, ¼ Barnafraivechaistle, Feolinmore & part of Shenovaill as 3¼d. Feolinmore is possibly feoirling + more (the big farthingland) while Shenovaill is for sean + baile or old town.
Goyne
Goyne seems to have been a district name in Torosay. Torgormaik, Achnacroish and Barr nam Frian were all said to be in Goyne. There is a similar placename in Kilarrow parish in Islay.

With Ardura, part of Carnaig & (part of?) Shenovaille as 1¾d in 1751.
Glen Cannel
Glen Cannel was 2d in 1390 but I suspect this contained the 1d of Gortenbuie. There is 1d Glenkeill (sive (or) Glencarrell) in 1510 which is probably Glen Cannel proper.
Brolos
Torrans
In 1509 there were three Torrans – Tornbeg, Tornanach & Tornecheir. In 1510 they are classed together as 3d of the three ‘Thorris’. Torrinichtrache or Lower Torrin belonged to Iona in 1561 (CRA p 1). This is just called 1d Thorin in 15878 (CRA p 163) or 1d Thornie in 1672 (HP I p 254). In 1751 they are Torranbeg, Torranuachtrich (Upper) and Torranichtrach (Lower). Langlands (1801) gives them the same names of Torranbeg (NM 4825), Torranuachrach (NM 4824) and Torranichrach (NM 4724). Presumably Upper and Lower Torran were subdivisions of a former Torranmore.
Eas na Dabhaich, NM 5421. This may be named for a tublike feature in the waterfall rather than for davach the landassessment unit.
