104 Dockington

If you take the left fork at the Milton and follow the road to the Old Glenbuchat Kirk you pass through Dockington farm. It is still a farm today and in the above map of 1850 there was the farm cottage on the left and the farm buildings on the right as is the case today.

The meaning of the name Dockington (for Baile Deochan): “Town of drinks, ale-house. Baile, town (translated into ton and put last); deochan, gen. plural of deoch, drink.”

This raises the possibility that at some time in the past this may have been some type of ale house. Near the base of Ben Newe there used to be a Peter Fair, so there may besome connection with this name.

The first mention of an occupant was William Chruie born 1709. It is stated that he was born in Dockington but it is unclear whether it was him or his wife who was born there. The Chruie family became the Chree family who lived at Sunnybrae and had a great influence on the life of the Glen in later generations.

From the book of The Glenbuchat Ballads:
“In the early 1800’s John Reid leased nearly all of the Milton, William Reid held all of Dockington, Archibald Reid farmed five of the eight oxgates at Kirkton, another Archibald Reid held nine oxgates at beltimore, and Arthur reid two of the four oxgates at Beltimb.”

Definition of Oxgang/Oxgate
The Imperial Dictionary gives "Oxgang. As much land as an ox would plough in a year, generally from 15 to 20 acres. . . . In Scotland it is termed Oxgate."
Oxgate/ Oxengate : An ox gang of land as much as may be ploughed by one ox according to the Scottish laws, thirteen acres
A davoch contains 32 oxengates of 13 acres each, or 416 acres of arable land. —(Stat. Acco. Scot., xix. 290.)

From the book of the Glenbuchat Ballads
“William Reid of Dockington..having the command of a little money, has lately done some cruel things. He has turned out the people of the Kirkton, his own near relations. They were a year’s rent in arrears, owing to a bad crop. This heard hearted misery promised to be surety for this Rent, & went to McDuff upon that pretence, but shamefully betrayed his trust, took the Kirkton for himself, & turned out these people. Several other cases of equal hardship & worse have occurred to poor people by these hard, scandalous misers.”
