The chapel was the chapel of Kettle, referred to frequently in early charters from the late twelfth century onwards (for which see KTT Introduction, Lathrisk and Kettle, and Kettle, below). Note also OS Pathf., besides Chapel, has Chapel Farm and Chapel Den, which appears as Cuthel Dean in 1796 (RHP4454; for more details see KTT Introduction). OS Name Book states that ‘it has derived its name from an old chapel that was adjacent, but neither the site nor any trace of it can now be pointed out’ (16, 58).
OS 6 inch 1st edn (1856) also shows Chapelcotton 500 m east of Chapel at NO318073.
