The ancient church of Hailes

The ancient church of Hailes
(now called Colinton), and the
chapel of St. Jamef at Newhaven, belonged to
the preceptory at Leith; 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
is no proof. They had a
right to a Scottish quart of
every tun of wine imported
into Leith, and this right,
at the Reformation, was
transferred to the magistrates
for the use of the

source-Old and New Edinburgh
