The 1393 reference is probably to this Newton; for the possibility that it may refer to Newton MAI, see PNF 2 under that name. Note that Coaltown of Wemyss is referred to as Newtown on Ainslie/Fife.
At some periods this pair of names is divided into Newton and West Newton, while at other times (as today) it is divided into Newton and East Newton.
