pn Reginald + Sc land

A large division of the lands of Kedlock, this only occurs in Latin, and probably translates the Older Scots ‘Reginald or Ronald’s Land’. It does not seem to have survived in any form, and may never have functioned fully as a place-name. The eponymous Reginald may be Reginaldus of Kinnear (Kener), who witnesses a charter of Alexander III to Arbroath Abbey 1259 × 1270 (Arb. Lib. i no. 310).

    On the basis of NLS Adv. MS 34.6.24, pp. 417–18 the bounds of *Reginald’s lands can be quite accurately traced (see LOG Intro., Medieval Lands): it included all of modern Kedlock west of the road from Cupar to Kilmany, as well as Torr of Kedlock (farm), Kedlock Feus, Kedlock Hill and Stensons Knowe.

    The above NGR is of the modern farm-steading of Kedlock.
