In 1546 mention is made of John Foddie (Fethye) of Foddismilne (Laing Chrs. no. 507). OS Pathf. now shows Waukmill at this site. However, it is clear from the above-mentioned charter of 1546 that they were not originally the same place (see Waukmill TOB and TOB Introduction).

The Lyne Burn, at least in its lower reaches, is referred to as the Foody Mill Burn (lie Futheyis-mylne-burne) in 1603 RMS vi no. 1402.
