"About the year 1208, David of Lyne gave to Simon, the son of
Robert of Scrogges, the land of Scrogges, estimated at half a carucate,
by these marches; namely from the Strype of Westerdun above
Holmdun (or Hameldun) to the water of Line, and from the
rise of Westerdun across to the rise of the Strype of Gilmimenerdene
and from the rise of Gilmimenerdene to the water of Line, excepting
always the wood of Gilmimenerdene, which the Lord kept in his own
hands, but permitted his vassal to have casements of the Lord's
whole fief, in meadow and field, in wood and plain" &c &c.

It is the wish of the Parish Minister of Lyne that this name be written on the plans as it has been a very ancient boundary of Ecclesiastical property, and as the name appears to be well authenticated, there is good reason for its being preserved.
