NARRATIVE ON PRINT - The Mawkin Pool is not the Wardmill Dam but the broad part of the Brothock at Almerieclose Bridge. 'The milldam still known by the name of the "Mawkin Pool" is mentioned in 1457 as the "Water of Brothac, vulgarly called Malkynnis Pril," a mode of expression which leads to the belief that the name is derived from the person who first formed the dam or pool for the service of the burgh mill. This may have been the father or other relative of Walter Makinis or Makwnys, a notary public who acted as clerk to the Abbey Chapter in the years 1494 and 1495. A John Makwnis is also named as a witness to an Abbey charter on 25th September 1497.' (Notes by George Hay, 1883)
