  This property, which lies in the parish of Tannadice,* was also
  owned by Lindsays at an early period. The omission of Murthill
  in its proper place arose from our inability to identify it at the
  time with any lands in the county. This was owing to the
  metamorphosed form in which it appears both in Robertson's
  Index and in the Great Seal, where it is severally written
  " Murletyre," and " Murlettre." Since printing the sheet in
  which the account of this estate should have appeared, the writer
  has been favoured with an extract from a notice of it which
  occurs in the Harleian MSS. in the British Museum, where it
  bears the less obscure form of " Murethlyn."
  According to the Great Seal Register, Sir John Lindsay of
  Thuirstown acquired this property from John Wallays of Kicar-
  ton in the Mearns, in the year 1329. It was held under the
  superiority of the Crown ; and Lindsay's charters being among
  those which were destroyed by the conflagration of the monastery
  of Fale, he had these renewed according to the following finding
  of the assise : — " At a sheriff's court of the King's tenants of
  Forfarshire, held at Perth on the 21st July, in the thirty-first of
  David II. (1360), it was found by an assise that the writs which
  Sir John Lindsay, Knight, had of the lands of Murethlyn, in
  the sheriffdom of Forfar, were totally burned in the sudden fire
  of the monastery of Fale ; and that the said Sir John held these
  lands of the King in capite for the service of one bowman in the
  « In a bounding charter of the Feme writs, among the Caraldstone papers, the hill of
  St. Arnold's Seat, in this parish, (at sup., n. p. 273) is named " St. Eunand's Seit."
