The aisle is all that remains of the old parish Church. It is to the westward of the present Church, and is used as the burying place of the Earls of Leven. Surrounding it is the grave yard there are no tombstones of an earlier date than the 18th century, it being a common practice to remove the slabs for the purpose of making hearth stones. [Quotation] "The bell of the old Church which was removed about ninety years ago when the one still in use was erected in its stead, had been used as appeared in an inscription upon it, from the time of Robert Bruce." Leighton's, Fife Vol II [Volume 2] p [127]
