Barngliesh, where the remains of an old building appear, may perhaps be a contraction of the French, 'Bernard eglise' - Bernard Church.

A chapel formerly stood here (to the W of the Hall Burn, some 700m N of Barngliesh). The name 'Hall' or 'Ha' Burn is said to be derived from 'hallowed' or 'holy'.
