Daphne Brooke connects this church to an Anglian religious community on Ardwall Island, just offshore (on the site of an even earlier, presumably British) burial ground, where a memorial stone was inscribed with the OE name 'Cuthgar' (Brooke 1991, 306). In 1684 it was noted that 'In the Kirkyard of Kirkanders upon the ninth day of August, there is a fair kept called St Lawrence Fair, where all sort of merchant wares are to be sold, but the fair lasts only three or four houres and then the people who flock hither in great companies drink and debauch and commonly great leudness is committed here at this fair' (Geog. Coll. ii, 65-6).
