Built as a farm on moorland (or rather muirland) in the early nineteenth century by Lord Melville of Melville House, it was named after a member of the Melville family (Calley [1999], 21). On both Ainslie/East Fife (1827) and SGF (1828) the whole area is shown as being covered in scrub or woodland.
