"The only ancient document of which the writer is
aware that gives any information relative to the
parish is Martins History of the See of St. Andrews
written in 1693 and printed 1797 from which it
appears that the greater part of the parish Styled
in the Golden Charter of the See of St. Andrews
Muckartshire was given to the Archbishop by James III
that the house of Castleton was built by Archbishop
Lamberton in 1320."
