Whitemyre 1888 x 1914 OS 6 inch County Series, 1st revision

Sc or SSE white + Sc or SSE mire

I have not found any earlier reference to the name than the one given above (1888 × 1914). It sits on a slight rise to the south of a burn which is one of the head-waters of the Lingo Burn, and at the west end of low-lying land which may well have been boggy prior to modern drainage.
