Parish of Kirkurd -- Sheet 8 No. 13 -- Trace 3

[continued from page 31]
"The ancient church stood about half a mile to the west of the present one within what
is now the park of Kirkurd house (or Castle Craig) where its ruins and cemetery were to be
Seen at the end of the last century. A plentiful Spring flows beside it and in the
neighourhood are two mounds or barrows the one called The Castle and the other The Law surrounded
by an irregular dyke or parapet". -- Origines Parochiales Scotiae vol [volume] 1 page 186

"It would appear that the church of Kirkurd must have been a vicarage in Roman
Catholic times for we are told that in 1477 William Chamber, the Vicar of Kirkurd granted
some lands in the manor of Corstorphine and various annual rents for supporting a chaplain
to officiate at St Ninian's Altar in Corstorphine church and that this endowment was confirmed
in 1477 by James III." -- New Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] of Peebleshire, page 132
