The Property of St Anthony

The ancient church of Hailes (now called Colinton), and the chapel of St. James at Newhaven, belonged to the preceptory at Ieith; and also the little chapel and hermitage of St. Anthony on Arthur’s Seat is said to have been the property of these Hospitallers,
but of this there right is no proof. They had a right to a Scottish quart of every tun of wine imported into Leith and at the Reformation, was
transferred to the magistrates for the use of the town.
