010 About 5/8 mile N.E. by E. from West Calder Two cottages, about [three fourths scored out] half a mile eastward of the village of West Calder. The name is said to have originated from this being the site of a Chap[el] belonging to the Parish of Mid Calder, previous to the Reformation. No authentic M[?...]dition of the place exists*, but it is said to have been in connecti[on] with a monastery on the border[?s.] The bell has been preserved and is now in Limefield House. -

Note that the List of Names column reads Chapeltown, with Chapelton scored out beneath it.
Again some of the right-hand text has been obscured by the binding.
