Defined by CSD as ‘a pleasure-ground or park, either attached to a castle etc or on its own’, pleasance with its pleasant connotations became a popular name for farms, and houses, the best known probably The Pleasance in Edinburgh, first recorded as a house-name in 1507 (Harris 2002, 459).
It would appear to be a division of the lands of Cockairnie DGY.
