Bellemount 1775 Ainslie/Fife
Bellyeamont 1796 Dunfermline Parish Records [‘Baptisms, May 1797: Barbara Sands, Residenter at the back of the Rood, brought forth a son in fornication on the 2nd day of Oct 1796, and gave as the father James Brandat Bellyeamont’]97
Bilyeoman 1827 Ainslie/West Fife
Bellyeoman 1828 SGF

This name occurs too late in the record for any certain etymology to be established. OS Pathf.’s South Bellyeoman is where Ainslie/West Fife shows Bilyeoman, and SGF shows Bellyeoman (1828). Ainslie/Fife (1775)’s Bellemount is probably an error. It is one of the few names whose form is significantly different on the two Ainslie maps.
