Sc. easter + en Radernie

Originally called New Radernie, it lay on the rough grazing land (muir) in the north-east corner of Radernie, adjacent to Morton (for which see Lathockar CMN). As this name indicates it was the part of the lands of Radernie which was most recently farmed and settled. The 1783 Sasines entry is puzzling, as King of the Muirs, described as part of Easter Radernie, refers to a place beside Peat Inn, at the opposite (western) end of the lands of Radernie. It may thus be a transcription error for Wester or Nether Radernie.
