St Mary also gives her name to the Lady Burn (Section I, Linear Features), which was also once known as St Mary’s Burn, and flows east past the north side of St Mary’s Farm. Ultimately the name of the farm and the burn derive from the dedication of the earlier medieval church of Cupar, close to whose site the burn flows. See CUP Intro. above for further discussion of this dedication.
