Morning Brian

I have not followed through in detail; but I suspect this extract will guide you there-

Located by parsiing to

Nether balforsk, Aberdeenshire
252 Many musk: its Church and Priory.

mill-lands, and salmon-fishing, Ordwood, Ordhaugh. Sandie-
hillock, Picktillum, [these are all now included in Pitfichie
farm and Blackhillock croft, the trees still showing where Pick-
tillum stood] Ordmill, Mildourie, Over and Nether Balforsk
[Overton and Netherton,] Rowrandle, with parts, pendicles,
multures, all lying in the regality of St. Andrews." This last
clause shows that the Pitfichie property originally belonged to
the bishops of St. Andrews, being part of Malcolm Ill's gift to
the Church. It doubtless embraced the whole portion of the
parish from the west approach to Netherton, except Cornabo,
which was held separately, as we saw, under the bishops of
St. Andrews, the charter in favour of John Davidson and his
family having been already translated.
