Notes or Comments:
The original churchyard was extended to form a cemetery. The original parish church has been demolished and the present church is built on a different site. There are two mausoleums in the churchyard - one to the Maconachie family of Meadowbank (now Kirknewton House) and one to Dr William Cullen (died 1790) and his son Lord Cullen, judge, died 1810.
