'Cain's farm' (Ir. Mac Cathain). In 1515 we find William McCane involved
in a suit against another tenant, but his holding is not set down. In
1643 Adam Caine held part of Glen Doo. Both of these were probably descendants
of the original holder.

- Andreas [1881c] (NX386014)
'Colum or Columba's farm.' Found both as a Christian name and surname
in the Isle of Man. As there appears to have been an ancient church here,
a dedication to St. Columba is not unlikely.
There was an ancient keeill situated near the W. end of Ballacolum, or
between there and the river, the exact site is not known to me, but I
have heard old inhabitants at the Lhane say that in the old times girls
went there in search of beads. It was also stated that a fisherman removed
a font from the place and used it as a barking-pot for his fishing-gear.
The next time he went to sea the boat would not hold him and his companions
had to put him ashore. (CRUINNAGHT Competitor).
