Session Records
[Situation] 29½ chains N.E. by E. [North East by East] of Hillend. Thiss name is taken from an old Farm that formerly stood in the field above the Bridge, its Situation being at the back of the of the Hill Would in Irish be Called Ca---. This name seems of doubtful origin and the people of the locality can give no information as to its correct spelling. They state however, that it is taken from a Farm which at one time stood on the Top of a hill and which from its position thereon was termed The Cool. If so, then Coul is the correct orthography. though in Scotch colloquial usage it is pronounced as if written Cool. Mr Lawson one of the oldest Parish residents states that he has seen it written Coul. This is the Scotch for a nightcap and the origin of the name may seem plausible enough - to say that the hill was capped. MJ
