The trade incorporations of Leith

The trade incorporations of Leith from the reign of James IV
to 1833 practically represented the whole of the people
of the town gathered together in groups according to
their occupations. The Leith trade incorporations were
divided into four groups—
1. The skippers and mariners of the Trinity House.
2. The maltmen, brewers, and sledders or carters.
3. The craftsmen and meal men.
4. The traffickers, and all other gentlemen and indwellers
in Leith not members of any of the other
corporations.
