The Boog Watson notes state that “Perhaps as enjoying a view of Largo in Fife” (I.R.) this may well be the case but in Leith and its Antiquities (Irons I page 144) it is stated that there was much local trade with Largo. In addition Sir William Wood, a famous Leith sea captain at the time of the wars with Henry VIII and Elizabeth I and commander of “the Great Michael” was a Largo man and lies buried in Largo Church.
