Trying to figure out the word below Alexander - ?aigfoodie is what my eyes are saying but would appreciate other more experienced eyes!

Craigfoodie?  It's a place in Fife.  But you thought the word was a description of an occupation.

Thanks - his location at time of death was written in the next column - as “Easter Craigfoodie” so I was trying to determine what might be meant by this word in the Name/Occupation/Status section - as putting the location again isn’t something I’ve seen (then again, I’m only three months into genealogy so I’ve got a lot more strange things to come, I’m sure!). Appreciate your help!
