‘Field with or by oak tree(s)’? A transferred SSE name? In 1828 the name attaches to the small settlement at what is now Kelty Cross. This is also the case on the OS 6 inch 1st edn., with Kelty the name attached to the settlement further north, between Oakfield and Bridge-end on the Kelty Burn. This same map also shows Grievesland (Grieus Land 1759 RHP14330) north of Kelty, and half way between Oakfield and Bridge-end. The name is not on the OS Pathf.
