This sub-division of the Strathenry lands appears to date back at least to the fifteenth century, with ‘the westir part of Strathenry’ of 1474 (1474 ADA 32–3) developing into Westerton. For another division of the Strathenry lands, see Newton above. A Sasine of 1821 refers to Easter and Wester Strathendry (no. 280).

    OS Pathf. also shows Westerton Wood to the north-west of the settlement.
