The name of this place appears as Dungecarre in the 12th century, Dundgecarre in the 17th century, but the derivation is thought to come from Old English 'dynge' meaning dung, and Old English 'carr' meaning marsh. Dunscar Fold has some 18th century built stone cottages, occupied by the descendents of Joseph Walsh.
