Parish notes

Parish lands largely held by the nuns of Haddington, and church, which does not appear in Bag., was probably held from the nunnery’s foundation (x1159). Certainly held by 1298, and continued so annexed. Coldingham Corresp. cxii; Ass. 166v, 167v, 186v). See Cowan 1967, 72-3 for more details.
