*Treinbeg. This is the Treinbeg/Trienbeg by Drymen – to be distinguished from another Treinbeg in Killearn.


RMS II (1546) 1482-3 (James III to John Haldane) is given at the top of the leftmost column above.


RMS II (2436) 1498 (as second section of the leftmost column above) is royal confirmation of an enfeoffment by Matthew earl of Lennox. This matches exactly with GD198/59 1493 which is an indenture between the earl of Lennox and John Haldane – see Fraser, The Lennox, II, No 93, pp 147-50. The spellings in the latter document are: ‘Calemor, the Ross Mcrath, Lurglorn, Keledeyn, the half of Drumekill, the thre Catyrs, Temkyte, Nader Barquhos, Blarmyle, Schenaglas, Ladrysbeg, and the twa Boturchis … Treynbeg, Knockour, with the fyschar land callyt the Croft, Barlosk, Ladrysmor, and twa Ackinkerachis … and the yilis of the Ross, Durinche and Yilingdarg’. (It is possible that Temkyte, Nader is actually for Finnich-Tennent rather than Finnich and Nether Barquhos).


RMS II (3288) 1508-9 & (3838) 1513 repeat the 1498 list with variant spellings. Rosmuckrath becomes ‘le Ross’ in 1509-9. Blarenahill  becomes Barnahill in 1508-9 or Berneill in 1513. Knokour is Knockgour in 1513. See also GD198/121 1513.

The Haldane lands were held in 2 separate baronies: Haldane & Glenegas (Gleneagles) but I have not distinguished them above.


‘Kepdouri’ and ‘Herdas’ (Ardess) appear in GD198/3 of early 14th century. Printed in ‘The Lennox’ Vol II p 406.

See also RMS II (1116) 1473.
