[Note] Auchenvey appears to be from the Gaelic words Achadh na Fliadh the deers' field or plain, but if the proper or correct form of the word be Auchinbay as in the anct. [ancient] valn. [valuation] Roll It would signify the field abounding in [birches]
P. S. The latter is the most probable [theory]
