County Map
006 This Town was evidently at first a fishing Village, which gradually sprung up under the protection of the Castle and rose into influence under the several powerful families to which it belonged. It consists chiefly of one principal Street, High St, from which the others Branch off to the shore or Harbour, The Houses are principally Modern but Still a few remain of that Flemish description which stood with their dove-tailed gables to the front. The most ancient portion of the Town lies towards the Harbour under cover of the Castle from which it appears to have gradually extended southward, it was formerly surrounded with a strong wall with Ports or Gates at the principal entrances, but not a vestige of such at present remains. The affairs of the Burgh are transacted by the Magistrates and Town Council of a Provost, Three Bailies; a Treasurer, Town Clerk, Chamberlain and fifteen members of Council. The Magistrates hold a weekly Court in the Town Hall on Saturdays. Its Public buildings, Civil and Ecclesiastical remains Churches, Streets &c &c are described under their several heads in the accompanying orthography Sheets.
