It extends from the march of the Parish, adjoining Fearn, to the part eastwards of the same wood which is named the North Wood. Formerly this was a fine wood and in Roup Bills - i.e. Auctioneering Notices, it always went by the name "Monytimber", the meaning of which is muchtimber, originating it is supposed from the former closeness and value of the wood itself. The Right Honble.[Honourable] the Earl of Fife is propr.[proprietor]. The name Monytimber extends eastwards to the indent near the east margin of Trace 5, formed by a part brought under cultivation. "North Wood" begins from this point.
