048 A considerable hill, — there is no settled mode of spelling this name, but I think Loweberry is the correct way. 'Lowe' means 'Hill' - Berry in Dumfries usage means to thrash corn, - and as it was usual before the introduction of machinery to do so on elevated situations,— [probably] hence the name.

Transcriber's notes

There are initials JBJ below each of the entries in the Orthography and also initials(?) in the List of Names - Won?

NB: the 1st column (List of Names to be corrected) shows a spelling for Dundrum different from anywhere else on the page - Dunarom
There are some words written in pencil(?) in the Orthography column - possibly - Dunndrum? (also at the bottom - 2n. Loweberry Hill - but crossed out)
check Loweberry - Descriptive Remarks - last word, 2nd last line is smudged, but appears to be "probably"
