    Heretrix of the east part of the lands of Pitfodells.
    ---
    In the end of the fourteenth century certain lands of Pitfodels, between the bridge of Dee at Aberdeen and the
    Den of Cults, became the property of William Reid, a kinsman of the former owner, Alexander Moray, the lord of
    Culboyne.' The lands remained in the Reid family until the beginning of the sixteenth century, when Marion,
    heiress of Alexander, the last Reid of Pitfodels, married Thomas, the eldest son of Gilbert Menzies, a burgess of
    Aberdeen, whose family was known thereafter for three centuries as Menzies of Pitfodels.
