It is bounded on the north by the parish of Ayton; on the East by the German Ocean, and the liberties of the town of Berwick; on the South by the river Whiteadder; and on the west by the parishes of Hutton & Foulden. Its form is irregular, somewhat resembling a Sand-glass or the letter g, on the narrow part of which Stands the church & manse; the parish there is only the breadth of the Glebe. It's length from north to South is between 3 & 4 miles; its greatest breadth, which is towards the northern extremity, is about 2 miles. Its original extent was very small, consisting only of the Barony of Mordington & the estate of Edrington, till the year 1650, when the lands of Lamberton, of much greater extent than the whole of what, before that period constituted the parish, were disjoined from the parish of Ayton & annexed to Mordington. In the year 1666, Mordington was disjoined from part of what is now the parish of Longformacus, when the latter, together with other lands from Surrounding parishes was erected into a new parish.
