In 1509, Ewne (sic) Maccorquodill of Edderlin was served heir to his father Ewne Maccorquodill of Phantelans, in the lands of Auchindrayne (Ach-an-draighinn), in the earldom and sheriffdom of Argyll.

In 1518, King James V confirmed to Ewen Maccorquodill, the son of the deceased Ewen Maccorquodill, the one markland of Acheindrien in the lordship of Ergile.

In 1542 the same King granted to Malcolm Makcorkill, the son and apparent heir of Ewen Makcorkill of Fantelen, with remainder in succession to his brothers Duncan and Lauchlan, and to Malcom’s heirs whomsoever, the same markland of Auchindryne, and the four marklands of Auchinthra, in the lordship of Lochow, which Ewen Makcorkill had resigned.

In 1556, Auchindryne, of the old extent of one mark, was resigned by Duncan M’Corkatill of Fantelane, and granted by Queen Mary to Archibald, Earl of Ergile.
