"The parish was an erection from Dalmeny in the year 1636 ratified by Act of Parliament
1641 at which time the place seems to have acquired considerable importance in consequence
of its commercial intercourse with Holland. At this time it possessed nearly twenty great
ships with several coasting vessels of a smaller size. A church was built in 1633 on
the ruins of a very ancient chapel. Some tombstones bear the date 1685 and one apparently
of a much earlier period." New Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] of Co [County] Linlithgow page 3.
