Sc tree + Sc toun

‘Farm built of wood’? Sc tree refers not only to the growing plant, but also to the timber which is obtained from it (CSD).

    Treaton was closely associated with Newton KWY; e.g. in 1516 William Cockburn (Cokburne) of Tretone is also called ‘of the Newtoune’ (Fife Ct. Bk. 48, 63). It was presumably a division of the lands of Dalginch KWY. OS Pathf. also shows Treaton Strips. It is referred to locally with the definite article (the Treaton).[117]
