The History of Leith

The first and last in Old Leith


This list of Elders of South Leith Church is interesting as it mentions Adam White who was the first Provost of Leith after Leith became independant of Edinburgh after 1833. Thomas Barker is also included and he was the last Baron-Bailie of St Anthony a title which had existed from the time of the Knight Templar’s in Leith.

This list can be found in the “South leith Records” at the entry dated Ist October 1843
