G inbhir + en Tiel

‘Mouth of the Tiel Burn’. For discussion of the name Tiel, see Section 1 above. It lies 1.5 km west of the mouth (inbhir) of the Tiel, and also gives its name to OS Pathf. Invertiel Farm Cottages and Invertiel Quarry.

In 1610 James VI issued a charter to Master James Raith, servant of Alexander earl of Dunfermline, and to Raith’s heirs, anent the lands of Invertiel with their manor place, rabbit warrens, mills, mill-lands, the bridges (lie Brigis), bridge-lands (Briglandis), meadows, fishings, and their (i.e. the lands of Invertiel’s) special pendicle called St German’s Acre (Sanct-Germanis-aiker)[172] (RMS vii no. 257).[173] The charter is in Latin, with occasional Sc words such as ‘lie Brigis, Briglandis’. The use of the plural ‘the bridges’ indicates more than one bridge on the lands of Invertiel, although in two repeat-charters of 1611 and 1635 the sing. ‘lie Brig’ is used (RMS vii no. 567, RMS ix no. 289). The most important bridge would have been the one which carried the main road over the Tiel Burn, and to which the bridge-lands (briglandis) would have been attached. This later became know as Bridgetown # KDT, KGH, which see.
