The Norman church they built at Restalrig

when we come to the de Lestalrics and the Norman church they built at Restalrig
before the days of Alexander III. That church would
consist of nave and chancel, and be very similar to the
Norman church at Duddingston built about the same
time (1143). This Norman church of the De Lestalrics became the parish church of both Leith and
Restalrig, the latter place, strange as it may seem to
us to-day, being then the larger township of the two.
