The name was transferred from Dundee. In c.1670 the Goldman family acquired the tenement of Muncksholme or Mounksholme ‘lying without the Neathergaitt Barras of the burgh of Dondie’, along with a twelfth part of the lands of Kincaple. The Maxwell family obtained both these properties from the Goldmans in the first half of the eighteenth century, and in 1758 we find David Maxwell calling himself of Monksholm and adjusting his boundaries with Thomas Meldrum, portioner of Kincaple.
