Wellwood 1892 Shennan 1892, 264–5
Although this place does not appear on early maps, not even early OS maps such as OS 6 inch 1st edn. or OS 1 inch 2nd edn., Wellwood is named as one of the places transferred to SLN from TOB in 1891 (see SLN Introduction). It may derive from the personal name Wellwood, which has also given rise to the village of that name north of Dunfermline q.v.
