Sc or SSE king + Sc or SSE dale

‘King’s share or division’. This appears to be a relatively recent coining, probably taking its name from nearby King’s Mills. The house itself is late eighteenth century (Gifford 1988, 275). OS Pathf. Newton of Kingsdale (q.v.), c.500 m to the north-west, formerly Easter or Lamonds Newton, did not acquire the specifier ‘of Kingsdale’ until the later nineteenth century.
