The 1458 grant to David of Wemyss of ‘half the lands of Glassmount’ suggests that the estate had already been divided by then. Ainslie/Fife (1775), with both Glassmount and Nether Glassmount, shows the division of the estate but under a different nomenclature.

For a possible chapel on the lands of North Glassmount, see Chapel Flat KGH, above.
