Sc threapland

‘Debateable land, disputed land’. See Elements Glossary (PNF 5) under threap. Laing notes: ‘It lay to the west of the town [of Newburgh], but from the complete alteration of the boundaries of the fields the name is obsolete’ (1876, 162). It usually occurs in association with Woodriffe NBH, q.v.

    The name is almost certainly connected with the *Threipfield Butts (the Threipfeild Buttis) mentioned as on or beside East Brodlands NBH (1652 RMS x no. 35).
