Pethvwenethe 1165 x 1172 St A. Lib. 179
Pethwwenethe 1165 x 1172 St A. Lib. 217 [= RRS ii no. 13]

G pett + ?

‘Farm of ?’. As there is no known later form of this name, it is difficult to establish a secure reading. Assuming that there has been no minim confusion, but that th has been miscopied or misread for ch, a common error, to give a reading *Pethvweneche, then the specific might be G buannachd ‘profit’, although this is not very likely.

It is one of the lands which Maolsneachda had held before Bishop Richard granted them to St Andrews Priory (see Bassaguard SSL for more details).
