A considerable tract of Peat Moss property of Sir William Jardine. The word Flow signifies a bog or morass (only used in Scotland) and is written Flow, Flowe, Flow-moss, in Jamieson's Dictionary p255 it would appear then, that Spedlings Flow-moss would be a better application for this name.
Spedlings Flow is the name applied by the inhabitants of the surrounding district. [JA]
