pn Fairley + Sc land
‘Fairley’s lands’. Black lists many variants of the name, including Fairlie, Fayrly, Fayrley, Fayrle, Farle, Farinlee, Farnele, Farnly. There was a William Farle of Cupar (Coupir) who was commissioner for the burgh of Dundee in 1459, and William Farnly was notary public of Dunfermline in 1483 (Black 1946, 252). Archibald Farnlie of Braid (Edinburgh) married Euphemia Kinninmonth in the early sixteenth century (RMS iii no. 567).but it was not a common name in Fife.
The 1511 entry above suggests that Fairlieslands was a distinct unit from Riggs; but the entries for 1512, 1533 and 1603 suggest rather that part of Fairlieslands was included in Riggs.
