For a discussion of the name Colzie, see Section 1, above. Easter Colzie lay in the parish of Abernethy, Fife portion (ANY FIF) until 1891 when it became part of NBH. North, South and Wester Colzie remained in ANY PER. Easter Colzie lay in the Fife portion of Abernethy presumably because of its being a part of the Fife-based barony centred on Ballinbreich FLK FIF. Several early forms of Easter Colzie appear without the affix easter; these are not included here, but can be found under Colzie, Section 1, above.

    OS Pathf. also shows Colzie Cottage, lying east of Easter Colzie, at a site marked Colzie Smithy on the 1856 OS 6 inch map (NO237136).
