To Blair. To make a loud noise. To bleat as sheep or goat.
Blair. That part of flax which is afterwards used in manufacture, properly
after it has been steeped, and laid out for being dried, ( Jamieson) } see etymology in page 85

"Blair," "To make a loud noise" etc., is not at all the origin of the name, - Neither is "Blair" as applied to flax

Transcriber's notes

There is another Netherton recorded on page 80 of Chapel Of Garioch Index. They appear to be two different places, i.e. different map ref., different tenants, different owners.
