Cowfold 1828 SGF
Cowiefauld 1856 OS 6 inch 1st edn
Sc cow or en Cowie + Sc fauld
‘Fold or enclosure for cows’, or ‘fold belonging to or associated with a person or family called Cowie’. If the former, the development of the medial -ie- is puzzling; it may therefore be that the 1828 form is a reinterpretation or misunderstanding of Cowiefauld.
/ˈkəuwɪ fɔld/, locally also /ˈkəuwɪ fɔ:d/.
