Notes

Abersnithock has been shown to derive from Eglismenythok and similar forms, *Eccles Mo Nethóc, a dedication to Nechtan. The farm name derives from the name of the chapel, Eglismenythok, eccles. Monymusk, q.v. The building beside a chapel here, which was formerly the Old Manse, is now called on OS Digimap Abersnithack Lodge, presumably by someone with a keen interest in local history who has renamed it recently.
