HISTORICAL NOTICES 



COLLEGIATE CHURCH OF ST. GILES, EDINBURGH. 



The Church of St. Giles, prior to the era of the Keformation, 
although surpassed in wealth and architectural splendour by some other 
religious establishments in Edinburgh, has more than a local interest 
attached to its history. A collection of the earlier charters connected with 
this Metropolitan Church, which has now existed for upwards of seven cen- 
turies, could not therefore fail to form a suitable addition to the several 
Chartularies already printed for the Bannatyne Club. The materials for 
such a volume were indeed somewhat scanty and dispersed, but there for- 
tunately exists a Register of such deeds, commenced in the year 1368, and 
partially continued for upwards of a century. This Register, which is a 
square folio of thirty-eight leaves of vellum, written at different times and 
by different hands, is in the possession of the Right Honourable Lord 
Panmure, by whom the use of it was most liberally granted. Such orio-inal 
charters as are now preserved in the Archives of the City of Edinburgh 
were communicated with equal liberality by the Lord Provost and Magis- 
trates, who, at the same time, permitted free access to their Records for the 
purpose of elucidating the history of the Church. The collection has been 
further enlarged with charters in the possession of private individuals, and 
with such as are incorporated in some contemporary Protocol books or in 
the Great Seal Register. The whole of these charters have been arrant^ed 



iv HISTORICAL NOTICES OF 

in chronological order, and those prior to the year 1400, and such others 
as seemed of more than special interest, are given without abridgment. 
While grateful thanks are due to the several parties who have contri- 
buted the use of the necessary materials for this work, it is but proper 
to add, that the details of preparing the transcripts for the press, of abridg- 
ing the more recent charters, revising the text, and forming the index, have 
been assigned to Mr. James B. Brichan, the editor of the latter portion of 
the Origines Parochiales Scotice. 

The History of Edinburgh is very obscure until we reach the times 
of David the First, in the twelfth century. That a parish church of small 
dimensions may have existed nearly coeval with the Castle and town, and 
long antecedent to existing records, is at least highly probable. Symeon 
of Durham, who flourished in the early part of the thirteenth century, under 
the year 854 includes Edinburgh in reckoning the churches and towns 
belonging to the Bishopric of Lindisfarne or Holy Island, in the district of 
Northumbria ; and this See, previously to the Scoto-Saxon period, extended 
over the ample range of Lothian as well as the more southern districts of 
North Britain. This reference is^enerally considered as applicable to the 
Church of St. Cuthbert under the Castle ; but it is to be remarked, that 
St. Cuthbert's was always a distinct Church and Parish, and formed no part 
of Edinburgh, and the name " Edwinesburch" ' must therefore have had a 
special reference to the Castle and town. It was, however, only when 
Malcolm the Second, King of Scotland, about the year 1020 obtained the 
cession of Lothian from the Saxon Earl Eadulf, that this district, with an 
increasing population, became of importance, and it has ever since remained 
a part of the kingdom of Scotland : the ecclesiastical jurisdiction afterwards 
continued to be exercised by the Bishop of St. Andrews, and the assumed 
dependency upon the See of York was constantly and most resolutely op- 
posed by the Scottish Church.

THE CHURCH OF ST. GILES. v 

and the Virgin Mary, and all the Saints, was commenced in the year 
1128. In the great Charter, which may be dated about the year 1145, the 
King, for the support of this foundation for Canons Regular of the rule of 
St. Augustin, bestowed the Church of the Castle, the Church of St. Cuth- 
bert under the Castle wall, the Chapels of Corstorphin, Liberton, and vari- 
ous lands, chiefly in the vicinity of Edinburgh. Had there been a parish 
church of equal importance with that of St. Cuthbert's, it might be sup- 
posed that it would have been mentioned with the other churches named in 
this Foundation Charter. Yet we find that in connexion with the parish 
church there was at that period a farm to the south of Edinburgh, 
which, from its being the grange of the Vicar of St. Giles's Church, was 
called St. Giles's Grange. It was conferred by David the First on the 
monks of Holm Cultram.* The name of the Grange in that locality is still 
'retained. Under the date of 1243, we find the name of a Perpetual Vicar 
of the Church of St. Giles, Edinburgh ; this circumstance, along with the 
earlier reference to its Grange, suggests that the church must have been 
attached to some religious house, and like the Priory of Coldingham, it 
might for a time have remained subordinate to Lindisfarne. It therefore 
seems the most reasonable conjecture, that the parish church dedicated 
in honour of St. Egidius or St. Giles, and which has ever since retained the 
name of the patron saint, was erected during the reign of Alexander the 
First (1107-1124), the founder of the Abbey of Scone, and several other reli- 
gious houses. Edinburgh at least was a place of suflicient importance in his 
brother David the First's reign (1124-1153) to be reckoned one of the Qua- 
tuor Burgorum Principalium, as a judicatory for commercial matters." The 
other boroughs were Stirling, Roxburgh, and Berwick ; and their enact- 
ments form the earliest existing collected body of the Laws of Scotland.' 

A portion of the original church, which, from its style, may with some 
degree of confidence be assigned to the early part of the twelfth century,

existed within the recollection of persons still alive, being a richly orna- 
mented Norman porch, which had formed the entrance to the nave on the 
north side of the church. Fortunately, before its removal in the year 1797 
or 1798, a representation of it was taken and etched by an Edinburgh artist, 
of which a careful fac-simile has been engraved as a frontispiece to this 
volume.^ The archivolt, it will be seen, was in several divisions, exhibiting 
figures of animals and grotesque heads, along with crenelated and chevron 
mouldings. Such doorways were often preserved, when every other part 
of the church was rebuilt.^ Had it still existed, it would liave formed the 
most interesting specimen of early architecture in this part of the country. 
The prevalence of Norman remains among such of the ancient parish 
churches of the Lothians as still retain any of their original masonry, proves 
that a very general impulse had been given to ecclesiastical architecture 
about the period when the Abbey of Holyrood was founded in the twelfth 
century.^ In confirmation of this remark, it might be sufficient to mention 
the existing churches of Kirkliston and Dalmeny, and the older portions of 
that of Duddingstone. 

In the ancient Taxation of ecclesiastical benefices, preserved in several 
of the chartularies, without date, but evidently belonging to the thirteenth 
century, as the rule by which the Scottish clergy were to be assessed by the 
Church of Rome, the Ecclesia Sancti Egidii de Edinburgh was placed in 
the Deanery of Linlithgow, and rated at the annual value of twenty-six 
merks. This comparatively small assessment may be accounted for by the 
parish not extending beyond the boundaries of the town ; the amount being 
only one merk more than the adjoining parishes of Duddingstone and Res- 
talrig, but not one-third of that of Lasswade, or one-sixth of St. Cuthbert's 
(sub Castro) under the Castle. The vicinity of the Abbey of Holyrood

may have likewise been the cause why the borough of Edinburgh was not 
constituted the seat of an Archdeacon. In the Taxation of 1275, known 
as Bagimont or Bayamond's Roll, St. Giles is rated at xvj li.' This sum 
nearly coincides with another taxation of Ecclesiastical benefices for Papal 
tenths within the southern district of Scotland, preserved among the Re- 
cords of Durham, in a roll of the early part of Edward the First, in which 
the Ecclesia Sancli Egidii is estimated, verus valor, at vj li. xiij s. iiij d., and 
Vicaria ejusdem at x li. ; the Decima respectivelybeing xiij s. iiij d. and 
XX s.^ 

This ancient Church of St. Giles, consisting of a nave and chancel, 
with small side aisles, may have either been rebuilt, retaining the orna- 
mented porch, or only been completed in the course of the thirteenth cen- 
tury. Notwithstanding the ravages committed by the invading forces of 
England, and the successive alterations and improvements, not less 
destructive, it can scarcely be said ever to have been wholly demolished, 
although its Norman character gradually disappeared as the church was 
enlarged, and numerous chapels and aisles were added, thus including the 
work of many different periods ; but no part of the architecture now indi- 
cates an earlier date than the latter part of the thirteenth century. As 
usual in all large churches, it presented internally the form of a cross, 
with the central tower placed at the junction of the nave and choir, with 
transepts and aisles both south and north. 

During the minority of David the Second, the infant heir of King 
Robert the First, who died in 1329, Edinburgh was exposed to constant de- 
predations in the contests with England and the adherents of Edward Balliol. 
That the parish church did not escape the ravages of the English invaders 
is stated by some of our older historians. The Chartulary of St. Giles, 
now printed, in fact commences with an exordium, dated on the Tuesday 
following the feast of St. Michael the Archangel (29th September) 1368,

to this effect : — That the Aldermen and Bailies of Edinburgh, taking into 
consideration how, from the ravages of war, the mortality of man, and the 
ignorance of youth, many bequests to their Church of St. Giles, and the 
altars endowed therein by burgesses, had been abstracted or misapplied, to 
the diminution of Divine worship, they, with the consent and assent of the 
rest of the burgesses, appointed John EoUo, Common Clerk of the commu- 
nity, to insert in this book, in the form of a Register, the annual rents 
belonging to the church, and its several altars within the same, with copies 
of the charters of foundation, as contained in the list subjoined. This reso- 
lution was only partially carried into effect, as instead of " the many be- 
quests," the list mentioned only specifies ten charters, of dates between 
1346 and 1363, and no deeds of an earlier date have been preserved. 

In the spring of 1383, John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, came to 
Edinburgh, but restrained his forces from sacking or destroying the town, 
the citizens having, according to Wyntoun, saved it by ransom. In the 
subsequent invasion, the English army under Richard the Second, in 1385, 
again took possession of Edinburgh, but after they had occupied the town 
for five days, it was committed to the flames. All our old historians concur 
in stating that while the Abbey of Holyrood escaped at this time, St. Giles's 
Church was involved in the general conflagration of the town. Thus 
Andrew of Wyntoun, in his Metrical Clironicle, says that the English 
forces, after burning the Abbeys of Melrose and Dryburgh, 

Of Edinduucii the Kyek. brynt thai,

In like manner, Walter Bower, the continuator of the Scotichronicon,^ states 
expressly, " Ac nobilem villam de Edinburgh, cum Ecclesia Sancti ^gidu

mentioning the destruction of EJinburgli at this time, There can he no doubt that the injuries which several of 

says emphatically, "Atque (utodii in homines, sic itnpie- these religious edifices suffered during English iiiva- 

tatis in Deum monumentum ibi defigeret senipitemum) sions were never fully repaired. 



THE CHURCH OF ST. GILES. ix 

EJUSDEM voraci flamnia incineravit." In tracing the history of the Church of 
St. Giles, three epochs are thus distinctly marked. The first is that to which 
we have referred, when it was of limited extent and size ; and the roof and 
other portions being probably of timber, were consumed, while the deco- 
rated Norman porch, with the massive stone piers and arches of the nave 
and of the chancel, may have only been partially injured, and not wholly 
destroyed like the wooden houses, thatched with straw, of which, according 
to Froissart's description, the town chiefly consisted. 

An original document of the period is fortunately preserved, and serves 
to illustrate the actual state and progressive enlargement of the Church 
of St. Giles in what may be called the second epoch of its history. It is 
the contract between the Provost and community of Edinburgh on the one 
part, and John Prymros, John of Scone, and John Skuyer, masons, on the 
other part, by which they engage to erect five vaulted chapels on the south 
side of the parish church of Edinburgh, from the west gavel, lying " in 
rayndoun" (signifying, probably, in a straight line) eastward to the great 
pillar of the steeple, in the same style of masonry as the vault above St. 
Stephen's altar, erected on the north side of the parish kirk of the Abbey 
of Holyrood. Four of these chapels were each to have a window of three 
lights; and the fifth chapel was to have a door equal to, or corresponding 
with, the west door of the church. The contract is in the following 
terms : —

An important fact may be deduced from the above contract, as it is 
evident from these stipulations that the nave of the church, extending to 
the pillars of the great steeple, was entire, and had escaped the eiFects of the 
conflagration in the year 1385. 

This contract, dated 29th November 1387, which presents one of the 
earliest specimens of Scottish prose now extant,' is peculiarly interesting 
in connexion with ecclesiastical architecture. The sum stipulated to be 
paid to the masons was GOO merks of sterlings of the payment, or money,of 
Scotland ; and on the back of the contract" is the acknowledgment of the 
builders having received, in 1390, twelve score pounds sterling, and, in 
August 1391, a further payment of ninety-two pounds, leaving a balance of 
the stipulated sum as still due of £2G8. The work was evidently still in 
progress ; but whether the sums paid to John Prymros, one of the masons, 
in 1399 and 1402, recorded among the miscellaneous notices at the end of 
the chartulary, formed part of the first contract, must be left to conjecture. 
An examination of the form of the groining clearly indicates that the outer 
walls of both the south and north aisles of the original church had been taken 
down and rebuilt, and new vaulted roofs substituted. At this period, the

nave had no clere-story, which, as it now exists in the western portion of the 
buildintr, is a modern addition, of lathe and plaster, in imitation of stone. 

In the plan of the church, these chapels are marked i 1 to 5, and 
the porch or door, a. In recent times this vaulted porch, with its richly 
o-roined ceiling, served as the south entrance to the Tolbooth Church ; and 
over it was a small chamber, lighted by an oriel window, the corbel of which 
was an angel holding the city arms. This apartment, from its contiguity to 
the Council Chambers, was long used as a charter-room, and immediately 
above it was another small room or closet, having some old-fashioned oak 
cabinets, also filled with a mass of deeds, papers, and city records. Its en- 
trance latterly was from the pulpit-stair within the church. It was originally 
the Revestry, or room for holding the vestments of the clergy, but being no 
longer required for such a purpose, it was employed, by order of the Coun- 
cil, for "keeping of their Evidentis buikis," &c. This was in April 15G3.' 
But this porch and chamber, as well as the two chapels marked b 4 and b 5, 
without the least regard to old associations or to picturesque effect, and 
although in perfect preservation, after a lapse of more than four centuries, 
were most ruthlessly sacrificed in order to obtain the tame formality of the 
present exterior. 

King Robert the Third, in consequence of the injury which the church 
sustained in 1385, may have been led by public grants to aid in its restora- 
tion and enlargement. In the Chamberlain Rolls, between the years 1390 
and 1398, various annual sums are allocated, conceduntur per Regem ad 
fabricam Ecclesie Beati Egidii de Edinburgh. During the minority and 
captivity of James the First in England, the same record exhibits similar 
grants between 1409 and 1413, ex donacione Domini Gubernatoris (Robert 
Duke of Albany), ad fabricam Ecclesie parochialis burgi de Edinburgh.^ 

It thus appears that the Church of St. Giles, like almost every large 
fabric of the kind, was a work continued for many generations, and enlarged 
by public as well as private contributions. At a somewhat later period than 
the five chapels commenced in 1387, a similar range of small chapels on the 
north side were erected, two on each side of the old Norman porch. The two

western chapels still remain with a light and elegant clustered pillar, from the 
capital of which spring the ribs of the groined roof, and the arches that 
divide it from the adjoining aisle. The accompanying woodcut gives a view 
of this part of the church, being one of the few portions which were allowed 
to remain almost untouched ; but forming part of the north gallery of the 
church now called West St. Giles, it was not thought necessary to encumber 
the sketch with the gallery and under-pews, or to represent the barbarous 
manner in which the bases of the pillars have been hewn away. 




In the ground-plan of the church, the above centre pillar, marked q, is 
called the Albany pillar, from having on its capital two shields of arms. 
The shield on the south side of the pillar, contains the armorial bearing of

An incident related by Bovver in his Scotichronicon, under the year 
1416, seems to indicate that the building of the church was completed, so far 
as the design of that time extended. " Hoc etiam anno par avium ciconi- 
arum venerunt in Scotiam, et super ecclesiam S. ^^gidii de Edinburgh 
nidificabant, et per unam ratam anni ibi morabantur ;"- but with some sim- 
plicity it is added, " sed quo postea avolaverunt nescitur." It needs scarcely 
be remarked, that storks were not likely to build their nests on a church 
where masons were still at work. It is highly probable that a small Lady 
Chapel may have existed at the east end of the church, but been removed 
when the building was enlarged. 

The third period of the history of the church may be dated from the 
middle of the fifteenth century, when the choir had been enlarged and com- 
pleted, by extending the building eastward in its present form. At the same 
time the roof was raised, and the clere-story windows added. That it was 
thus enlarged appears not only from the more ornate style of the building, 
but from the appearance of the walls, marking distinctly the older portions, 
and also from the heraldic devices and armorial bearings still existing. Thus 
it is evident that while the pillars nearest to the centre are plain octatfons, 
with arches corresponding in simplicity, those at the east end have decorated 
capitals supporting moulded arches. There is a change also in the groining 
of the aisles, and the spaces between the pier-arches are enlarged.^ The

King's pillar, as it is called, is the first from the window on the north side, 
and near the spot where stood the High Altar. On the foliated capital are 
four coats of arms, two of which, the second and third, are here represented. 





Of these armorial bearings, the first has the lion within the double tres- 
sure, and is usually supposed to be those of King James the Second (1436- 
1460); the second, impaled, of his Queen, Mary of Gueldres (1449-14(33). 
In both these shields a blank space occurs, the upper part being apparently 
left unfinished, but as this form elsewhere occurs, it may perhaps have some 
heraldic signification. The third, as above, has also the lion within the 
double tressure, but having a label of three points, which is held to denote 
a prince or heir, if not a younger son. The fourth shield has three fleurs- 
de-lys, for France.

On the opposite pillar, on the south side of the High Altar, are also 
four coats of arms, viz., those of the town of Edinburgh, and of the families 
of Kennedv, Otterburn, and Preston.

To commemorate other benefactors, on the demi-pillar, on the north 
side of the eastern window, we have the arms, three cranes gorged, of Thomas 
Cranstoun, a burgess, and chief magistrate of Edinburgh in 1439, and again 
in 1454 ; and on the south side, those of Napier of Merchiston, also Provost 
of tfie City in 1457, on the Lennox shield, a saltire engrailed, cantoned with 
four rosettes, which the Napier family assumed before the middle of the 





fifteenth century.^ But a circumstance occurred which led to the proposed 
erection of the Preston Aisle, on the south side of the church, in the year 
1454. 

In noticing this erection, we may briefly advert to the Saint who, from 
some unexplained cause, was chosen by the burgesses of Edinburgh as 
their tutelar Saint. St. Egidius, or Giles, an Abbot who flourished towards 
the end of the seventh century, according to the recognised authorities in 
such matters, was an Athenian by birth, and of noble extraction. His 
extraordinary piety and learning drew the admiration of the world upon 
him in such a manner, that it was impossible for him to enjoy in his own 
country that obscurity and retirement which were the chief object of his 
desires on earth.^ Having sailed for France, he spent many years in the 
wild deserts near the mouth of the Ehone, and afterwards in a forest in the

diocese of Nismes. The Bollandists^ have shown that this district belonged 
to the French towards the beginning of the eighth century, when St. Giles 
died, and that his body remained there till the thirteenth century, " when, 
the Albigenses being very troublesome in that country, it was thought pro- 
per to remove it to Toulouse, where it is still kept in St. Saturnius' Church. 
. His name occurs on the 1st of September in the Calendars of the 
Jlnglish Church, before the Reformation ; that, and two ancient churches 
in London, are a suflScient proof of his being known and honoured by our 
devout ancestors."" The parish church of Elgin was also dedicated to St. 
Giles.' One of the few existing Seals of our Collegiate Church (see the 
accurate engraving at the end of these Notices) represents, under a canopy 
supported by spiral columns, a full length figure of St. Giles with the nimbus, 
holding the crozier in his right hand, and in his left a book and branch. A 
hound, his usual attendant, is playfully leaping up to his hand. But the cir- 
cumstance to which we referred, as having led to the further enlargement of 
the church was connected with a relique of the Patron Saint. 

In the Charter dated 11th of January 1454-5 (printed as No. 77, p. 106), 
it is narrated, that William Preston of Gourtoun, then deceased, and in- 
terred in the Lady Aisle, had, with diligent labour and great expense, and, 
aided by a high and mighty prince the King of France, and many other 
Lords of France, succeeded in obtaining possession of the arm-bone of St. 
Giles ; and that this inestimable relique had been freely bequeathed by him 
" to cure mothir Kirk of Sant Gele of Edynburgh withoutyn ony condicion."

with the importance of such an acquisition, voluntarily undertook to com-

mence within one year, and to complete in the space of six or seven years,

specifying his having brought that relique to Scotland ; his arms also to be

endow a chaplain to sing for him from that time forth, and granting to his 
nearest relations the privilege of carrying the relique in all public processions. 
The monument with its brass tablet has long since disappeared ; but the 
original charter was deposited several years ago in the General Register 
House, by Alexander Maconochie Welwood, Esq., one of the contribu- 
tors of this volume, and one of the nearest relations of the Preston family 
now alive ; his uncle, the late Sir Robert Preston, of Valleyfield, Baronet, 
beino- the lineal descendant from Preston of Gorton mentioned in the charter. 
An accurate facsimile of this curious deed is here inserted. The fate of the 
Relique itself will be afterwards 
noticed. The Preston Aisle, 
subsequently known as the As- 
sembly Aisle, is marked E on 
the ground-plan ; and it will be 
observed that the groined roof 
corresponds with that of the 
chancel, marked A, which, as 
already stated, was raised at the 
time when the building was ex- 
tended eastward. The annexed 
cut of the Preston arms is copied 
from one of the central bosses of 
the ribs of the groined ceiling. 

On the other central bosses are the City arms, and a shield, 1st and 4th a

burn, Earl of Bothwell, quartered with the arms of Vaux, Lords of Dirle- 
ton, by the marriage of Sir Patrick Hepburn of Halis, with the co-heiress 
of that ancient family. Patrick Lord Halis was Lord Provost in 1487.

It may have been to aid in discharging this obligation, that the Pro- 
vost and Council, in the year 1462, when they passed a Statute regarding 
the mode of selling victual and timber, brought by strangers to the port 
of Leith, enacted, that " any person who brekis this Statute sail, pay to the 
Kirk Wark of St. Geill, ilk persoun singularlie be himself, ane chalder of 
quheit, but remissioun." In like manner, a previous enactment in 1438 
mav have had some reference to the enlargement of the church. But in the 
present remodelled state of the building, we have no sure means of assigning 
the several divisions to their respective dates. Such work proceeded slowly, 
the number of persons employed was limited, and the ornamental parts and 
mouldings were usually executed by the Master Mason himself. We can 
therefore only offer as a probable conjecture, that the same workmen who 
extended the chancel, and added the clere-story the whole length from the 
pillars of the central tower to the east end of the choir, were employed in 
completing the Preston Aisle. All this was accomplished, we may suppose, 
prior to the year 1475, when the parish church had been converted into a 
collegiate foundation. 

To the same period also may be assigned the Steeple or Airy Lantern, 
formed by cross ribs, in the shape of a crown (although this in part was pro- 
bably of a later date), which, from its elevated position, rising in bold relief 
against the sky, near the centre of the long line of buildings of the old town, 
covering the ridge from the Castle to the Netherbow Port, was always a con- 
spicuous and picturesque feature in any view of the town.^ An admirable 
representation of the Tower and Lantern Is given in Billings's Baronial and 
Ecclesiastical Antiquities of Scotland, vol. il. His technical or professional 
description may be quoted : — • 

" The general plan of the church is a cross, the lantern-tower spring- 
ing from the meeting of the arms. Continuous with the extremity of the 
nave is an additional transept with a flat roof. The main transept has 
aisles, and the southern branch has projecting edifices on either side, which 
give It in Itself the form of a cross. . . . This species of lantern, formed

by cross ribs, as in groined arching, seems to be peculiar to the north of 
Britain. It does not occur further south than Newcastle, while in Scotland, 
we find it still remaining in King's College, Aberdeen, and the Tron Steeple 
in Glasgow ; until lately it existed in Linlithgow, and formerly terminated 
the Tower of Haddington. Of all the Scottish instances, St. Giles is at once 
the richest and lightest. The others had merely been formed by crossed 
arches springing from the corbels of the tower. That of St. Giles has an 
octagonal character, from two arches springing from the centres of the wall- 
plates. Along the intermediate spaces there is a parapet, pierced with 
quatrefoils, having a flowered moulding at the projection, and cusps on the 
upper edge. The outer edges of the arches are adorned with crocketed 
pinnacles, and supported by the general keystone, there springs from the 
centre of a clustre of small pinnacles, rising tier over tier, a graceful spire. 
The whole plau exhibits those capricious irregularities so frequently to be 
found in the finest specimens of Gothic work." 

To the same period we may refer the great bell of St. Giles, which 
must have been heard far and near on special occasions ; as when, after 
news arriving of the disastrous field of Floddon, the inhabitants were ordered, 
at the tolling of the common bell, to assemble in military array for the 
defence of the city. This bell was cast in Flanders, and is described 
having the arms of Guelderland upon diff'erent parts, together with 
figures of the Virgin and child, and other devices, and had the following 
inscription : — " Honokabiles viri burgenses Vill.e de Edinburgh in 
Scotia hanc Campanam fieri fecerunt Anno Dni. m.cccc.lvv. [1460?]

From the Council Records towards the close of the fifteenth century, 
and the early part of the sixteenth, we learn that various fines were still 
directed to be appropriated to the Kirk wark of St. Giles, including the 
reparation of altars. Thus in the Seal of Cause granted to the Incorpora- 
tion of Fleschers, 11th of April 1488, certain penalties were to be exacted, 
two parts to be raised by the town's officers " to the kirk wark," and the 
third part by the deacon of their craft, to the reparation of their own altar 
within the church. But there is one contract of the Provost and Council 
in the year 1491, which is worthy of special notice. This curious document, 
which contains regulations for the hours of attendance of the Master Mason, 
and his colleagues and servants, hitherto unnoticed, is as follows : —

These regulations do not furnish us with the name of the Master Mason, 
but a previous entry, supposed to belong to the year 1484, may perhaps 
supply the omission ; as Alexander Gray " was then chosen and sworne 
Maister of the werk to the towne for this yeir to cum, for quhilk he sail haif 
xx"^ mark of fie." That some extensive operations were in progress when 
these regulations were enacted, seems beyond doubt. So far as can now be 
ascertained, the latest additions to the church may have included an exten- 
sion of the south transept, and the erection of the two aisles or chapels on 
each side, marked g and d on the ground-plan. The latter was connected 
with the south wall of the chapels of 1387 marked h 1 and b 2, and had a 
groined roof, which was fully as rich as any portion of the choir. This was 
the chapel referred to in the Charter of Confirmation of a mortification by 
Sir Alexander Lauder of Blyth, Provost of Edinburgh, to an altarage of 
St. Giles's Kirk, dated l7tb of August 1513, by which he founded "a chap- 
lainry in the New Chapel, near the south-western corner of the church, in 
honour of God, the Virgin Mary, and Gabriel the Archangel." It consisted 
of two arches, extending between the south porch of 1387, and the south 
transept ; and in the interior of the wall, between the two windows, an 
altar-tomb was constructed under a deep recess, on which a recumbent figure 
had no doubt been originally placed.^ On each side of the centre ornament, 
at the top, but placed against the wall, there appears like heraldic support- 
ers, the lion rampant and the dragon. 

The Church of St. Giles stood in the centre of the town, having the 
Via Regia or High Street on the north, and an open space towards the 
south, beyond the churchyard, which was afterwards converted to the same 
purpose. But the church, from an early period, was blocked up by succes- 
sive erections, originating in the circumscribed limits of the town within 
its walls. The " buith raw" was a range of houses running parallel on 
the north side of the church; and the magistrates derived an annual 
revenue from the booths and shops erected against the walls of the

streets to be so crowded and 61thy, says, —

The covered passage which so long retained its appropriate name of 
the "Stinking Style," in the "Booth Row," or Luckenbooths, ^ served as 
a communication between the north side of the church, and the part of the 
principal street called the Lawnmarket. At the north-east corner there 
were steps leading to the entrance of the church, called " Our Lady's Steps," 
from the image of the Virgin, placed in a niche of the outer wall.^ Near 
the same spot stood the City Cross. It was removed and rebuilt somewhat 
lower down the High Street in the year I6l7.* In a letter to Cardinal 
Wolsey from Dr. Magnus, 26th of November 1524, an account is given of 
the Earl of Angus, with a numerous retinue, forcing his way into Edin- 
burgh, and " at thair cummying to the Crosse, beside Sanct Giles Church, 
they did proclamations to be made," &c.^ 

The place which is now called the Parliament Close was anciently the 
churchyard of St. Giles, being the common cemetery of the town, as usual 
attached to the parish church. The Provost's house, with its garden or 
glebe, was on the east side ; the houses of the prebendaries and ministers 
were on the west side ; and the declivity on the south side, afterwards fami- 
liarly known as " the Back Stairs," became the lower churchyard, at the foot

burgi."^ This cemetery, as we have stated, was afterwards enlarged. On 
the 14th of January 1477-8, William Forbes, Provost of St. Giles, with 
consent of the Chapter, considering the necessity of providing for the inter- 
ment of his parishioners, granted to the said church that portion of his 
garden which was contiguous to his manse, to the south of the church.^ On 
the penult of July 1496, the same dignitary made a further grant of the north 
part of his manse and glebe, for extending the cemetery of the said church." 
We have unfortunately no trustworthy views of St. Giles's Church, or 
of Edinburgh, of an early date. Some of these are 
either bird's-eye views hastily sketched, or ideal re- »<fi^ 
presentations to correspond with printed descrip- 
tions. Of the first class, is the sketch apparently 
made in the year 1.547,* in which, as here copied, the church is merely indi- 
cated, without any attempt at correctness of detail. Of the latter, is the 
slight woodcut which appeared in 1550, to illustrate the description of Edin- 
burgh, by Alexander Alesius, in Sebastian Munster's 
work, Cosmographia Universalis, repeatedly pub- 
lished in German and French, as well as Latin ; and 
we may add the more imposing view, as if taken from 
an actual survey, in Braun's Civitates Orbis Terra- 
rum, a work which also passed through many edi- t^^;?>i1f^i^,jlaii'Li!lii 
tions in the same languages, between 1572 and 1618. 
In the curious woodcut representing the siege of the 
Castle in the year 1573, which illustrates the first edition of Holinshed's 
Chronicle, we have a nearer approach to an actual glimpse of the church,

with its open space sloping down towards the Cowgate. The object intended 
in the view itself was evidently to point out the position where pieces of 
artillery were placed during this memorable siege ; and the High Street, in 
particular, is most incorrectly drawn. 

The survey of Edinburgh, drawn by James Gordon, minister of Rothie- 
may, in 1647, and engraved in Holland, is of great importance as the earli- 
est correct plan of the city ; and that portion of it showing St. Giles, and 

the projecting tops of the Parliament House, 
then erected, is here added. A considerable 
part of the ground to the south of the church 
was then occupied by these new buildings ; 
and the steeple and roof of the church had 
recently been restored. We could have 
wished that Gordon had devoted more of his 
time to delineations of the ecclesiastical build- 
ings as they existed in his time, with the same 
fidelity that characterizes the four views of 
public buildings in Edinburgh, which were 
also engraved in Holland, from his drawings.^ Views of a later date are 
too common or well known to require any notice in this place. 




Having thus attempted, in this general description, to trace the pro- 
gress of the building as it existed prior to the Reformation, our attention 
may now be turned to the internal affairs of the church, by presenting some 
notices of its Dignitaries and chief Benefactors, interspersed with occasional 
references to such public events as in some measure were connected with 
its history. 

Previously to its erection into a Collegiate establishment, the Church 
of St. Giles was under the parochial charge of a Perpetual Vicar. Mention 
has already been made of the grant by David the First of St. Giles's Grange

to the Monks of Holm Cultrarn, or Holm, an Abbey of Cistercians in Cum- 
berland, about twelve miles distant from Carlisle, which is said to have been 
founded by Henry, Earl of Huntingdon, eldest son of King David, 3d kalends 
of January 1150.' The first official of the church whose name is to be found 
in public records, was Johannes Ecclesi^e Sancti Egidii de Edinburgh 
PERPETUUS VicARius. He appears with Baldred, Dean of Lothian, as a 
witness to a Papal deed, in the reign of Alexander the Second, and the first 
year of the Pontificate of Innocent IV. ; which fixes the date to the year 
1243.^ We also find, in charters under the year 1247, Magister Alexander 
DE Edinburgh,^ and in 1268, Eobertus de Edinburgh, Canon of Glasgow,^ 
one or other of whom may perhaps have been his successor as Vicar. This 
designation of Vicar, and the donation of the grange or place in which the 
great tithes were usually stored, clearly denote that the church itself must 
for a time have been attached to some religious house or monastery. 

The Parish Church of Edinburgh was occasionally used for holding 
national Councils, and other solemn meetings. In the year 1293, a General 
Council was held in full consistory, in pleno consistorio, within the Church 
of St. Giles.' Four years later, on Sunday before the feast of St. Thomas 
in 1297, Doneca, daughter of John, son of Herveus, resigned certain lands to 
the Convent of Holyrood, in full consistory, held in the Church of St. Giles." 

In a charter granted by Sir David de Grahame to the Hospital of Soltra, 
Master Alexander of Reclynetoun, Perpetual Vicar of Edinburgh, ap- 
pears as a witness.^ This was probably in the reign of Robert the First 
(1306-1329), as the charter was granted when Symon de Wedale was Abbot 
of Holyrood, and Symon occurs as Abbot on the vigil of St. Barnabas the 
Apostle in 1326.'

church, the earliest benefactors recorded belong to the middle of the four- 
teenth century. Among these were Mathias, son of Juliana, burgess, in the 
year 1345 ; Henry Multerer, of his lands of Grothill, in 1350, confirmed 
in 1362 by his son, Robert Multerer ; John of Allyncrum, William Hare, 
Roger Hog, and other burgesses of Edinburgh. Some earlier grants may be 
included in the rental of the several altars ;' but as the charters have not 
been preserved, the dates cannot be ascertained. In 1362, David the Second 
confirms the grants of the lands of Over Merchiston, of Railtoun or Ravels- 
toun, and of Craigcruik, granted by William More, Lord of Abyrcorn,^ Sir 
Patrick de Grahame of Kynpunt, and Sir David de Graham of Doundaff, and 
others. In one of these charters, dated in 1362-3, we find the name of 
DoMiNus Bricius, Perpetual Vicar of Edinburgh. 

In the year 1384, the Scottish Barons met in St. Giles's Church. This 
circumstance is stated byFroissart, who says that "the Earl of Douglas, the 
Earl Muref, and other knightes and squyers of Scotland, helde a secret con 
sayle togyther in the chiirche of Edinhorowe ; when the said knights and 
barons of Scotland, and they of France, made an appointment to invade the 
realme of England, without the knowledge of the King of Scottes, who was 
at Edenborowe."' In prosecution of this enterprise, they overran North- 
umberland, and committed great devastations, which in the following year 
were amply repaid when, as already stated, St. Giles's Church suffered in 
the conflagration by which a great part of the town was destroyed. 

In the year 1393 Mr. James Lyoun was Vicar of St. Giles. After 
the Scottish Church had renounced the pretended jurisdiction of the Arch- 
bishops of York, the patronage of various churches in the district of Lothian 
probably remained vested in the King; and Robert the Third, on the 15th 
of December in that year, in consideration of the expenses incurred by the 
Monastery of Scone, from its being close to the seat of Government, and thus 
exposed to great charges in entertaining assemblages of nobles at the time of

his coronation, and on other occasions, when met for the transaction of urgent 
business, conferred the right of patronage of the Church of St. Giles, and 
every other right which he or his predecessors had in the said church, on 
that monastery. This grant was confirmed by Walter Traill, Bishop, and 
the Chapter of St. Andrews, on the 3d of May 1395 ; by which union it was 
appointed that when Mr. James Lyoun the Vicar of St. Giles shall have 
ceased, by death or otherwise, to hold the benefice, the canons of the monas- 
tery should enter on possession of the church, keep it in repair, and supply 
it with ecclesiastical services. In the same year two Papal Bulls of Bene- 
dict XIII. confirmed the arrangement by which the Church of St. Giles 
became a dependency on Scone. Although we do not meet with the name 
of any Vicar of the church for nearly half a century, the Canons of Scone 
no doubt fulfilled their obligations. 

Among other important transactions of which the Church of St. Giles 
was the scene, it is recorded that in the year 1440, the Lord Chancellor 
Crichton, and Sir Thomas Livingstone, Eegent during the minority of 
James the Second, met there to deliberate as to the custody of the King's 
person. It also continued during the fifteenth century to receive many valu- 
able endowments from ecclesiastics of distinction as well as burgesses ; in 
particular, the names may be specified of John Cameron, Bishop of Glasgow, 
and Chancellor of Scotland ; Thomas of Cranstoun, burgess of Edinburgh, 
his wife Mariot, and his son "William of Cranstoun ; the Forresters of Cor- 
storphine ; John Gray, Eector of Kirkliston ; John Laing, King's Treasurer, 
Bishop of Glasgow, and Chancellor ; Thomas of Lauder, Master of the Hos- 
pital of Soltra and Bishop of Dunkeld ; James Livingstone, Bishop of Dun- 
keld and Chancellor ; Robert Logan of Restalrig ; Archibald Napier of 
Merchiston ; and John Otterburn, Official of Lothian and Archdeacon of 
Galloway. Had all the charters and deeds of foundation been recorded, we 
should no doubt have met with the names of other distinguished benefactors, 
and ascertained the precise dates or the occasion on which some of the 
chapels or aisles were erected. 

John Methven, Doctor of the Canon Law, is the next Vicar of Edin- 



xxviii HISTOEICAL NOTICES OF 

burgh of whom we find any record. Like many of the beneficed clergy of 
that period, he filled successively several important offices. He was educated 
at St. Andrews, and from the records of the University it appears that 
Dominus Johannes de Methven became a Bachelor of Arts in 1430, and a 
Master of Arts in 1431. In 1437, his name occurs as Provost of the Col- 
legiate Church of Lynclouden. In 1449, he is styled Doctor of Decrees, 
and was Master of the Rolls and Clerk Register. In the Parliament held 
29th January 1449-50, the Vicar of Edinburgh, without having his name 
specified, was appointed one of twelve persons of distinction who were chosen 
to examine and report on all Acts of Parliament and of General Council.' 
In the following year, on the 5th of July, Dr. Methven is expressly called 
Vicar of Edinburgh ;^ and on the 21st of May 1454, a safe-conduct was 
granted to John Methven, Doctor of Decrees, and Vicar of Edinburgh, 
with twelve persons, to pass through England and proceed to Calais.' 
Whether a new nomination was occasioned by his death or resignation is 
uncertain, but we find 

Nicholas de Ottirburn styled Vicar of Edinburgh, on the 8th of 
June 1455,* in the safe-conduct granted to George Bishop of Brechin, Wil- 
liam Earl of Orkney, and others. He also was a person much employed in 
public affairs, and had completed his studies at St. Andrews, being one of 
the Determinants in 1419, and a Licentiate either in 1420 or 1421. In an 
indenture of Archibald of Douglas, who assumed the title of Earl of Mur- 
rave or Murray in virtue of his marriage, he pronounces a judgment 
in his official capacity on the 26th of August 1447, in which he is designated 
" Nicholaus de Ottirburn, Magister in Artibus, Licentiatus in Decretis, 
Canonicus Ecclesioe Glasguensis, ac Officialis Curiae Sancti Andreae."' In 
letters of safe-conduct, 13th July 1459, he is again styled Vicar of 
Edinburgh, and also Clerk Register and Clerk of the Rolls.* He died on 
the last day of January 1461-2, as we learn from the obituary preserved in

the Glasgow Chartulary.^ His nephew, John de Otterburn, Provost of the 
Collegiate Church of Methven, Canon of Glasgow, and Official of St. An- 
drews within the Archdeaconry of Lothian, founded commemorative ser- 
vices or praj'ers for his soul, at Glasgow in 14G8,^ and at Edinburgh in St. 
Giles's Church in 1478.' 

William Forbes, Canon of Aberdeen, was the next incumbent as 
Vicar of St. Giles, and his name appears in a deed of the year 14G4. 
During his time the parish church, in its decorated style of architecture, 
had assumed its enlarged and completed form. A large number of altars, 
more or less richly endowed, had been founded within distinct chapels, 
by the piety and munificence of persons of various ranks; not less than 
thirty separate altars being indicated in the following charters ; and the 
enlargement of the fabric affords a satisfactory proof of a desire to adapt the 
church to the religious wants of the increasing population. Kinf James 
the Third, at the request of the magistrates and community of Edin- 
burgh, in a charter under the Great Seal, dated the 28th of October 
1466, granted his consent for the erection of St. Giles's Church into a Col- 
legiate institution ; * but a delay of some years would seem to have occurred 
in carrying this intention into effect. The death, a few months previously, 
of James Kennedy, Bishop of St. Andrews, who had held the Commenda- 
tory of Scone, and is supposed to have been a benefactor to the Church of 
St. Giles, may have contributed to this delay. The charters of erection and 
confirmation are not preserved ; but Patrick Graham, his successor, who, 
during his visit to Rome, had obtained the erection of the See of St. Andrews 
into an Archbishopric, must have confirmed the Royal charter and procured 
the Papal consent to the erection of St. Giles into a Collegiate Church, before 
he fell under the King's displeasure, and ended his days in captivity. In char- 
ters dated the 25th of February 1467-8, 20th of September 1470, and 6th of 
July 1471, the church still continued to be designated Ecclesia parochialis 
Beati ^gidii. But in a charter which was discovered after the printino- of

the text, and which is subjoined, with some other additions, in the Appendix 
to these Notices, it is under the date of October 1475, called The College 
Kirk of St. Geill of Edinburgh, and by this name it is invariably desig- 
nated in deeds of a subsequent date. The Chapter consisted of a Provost, 
Curate, sixteen Prebendaries, a minister of the Choir, four Choristers, a 
Sacristan, and a Beadle. The revenues of the altars and chaplainries in 
this church were appropriated for the support of the several oflBcers in the 
new establishment. To the King was reserved the nomination of the Dean 
or Provost, who was to enjoy the tithes and other revenues of St. Giles's 
Church, with the adjacent manse ; and the Provost had the right of choosing 
a Curate, who was to have a yearly allowance of 25 marks, with a house 
adjoining. 

It might be supposed from the distinct and explicit statements given 
by Maitland,^ that he must have had the original deed of erection before him. 
It has not, however, been discovered in the Archives of the City, nor is it 
recorded in the Register of the Great Seal. He may, indeed, have obtained 
his information from some later document in which the particular revenues 
assigned to each of the priests were recapitulated ; but his statement is so 
minute and apparently accurate, that it may be transferred to these pages. 

" St. Giles's Chukch, from its first settlement, till the year 1466, appears to have 
been only a common Parish Church. But the Edinburghers at this time, by virtue of a 
grant from King James III., converted the same into a Collegiate Church, and established 
their new erection on tlie old foundation of altarages or chaplainries, which shows them 
to have been pretty numerous, as will appear by their several names, which were as fol-

altai-s had a plurality of foundations and chaplains belonging to them ; whereat were 
performed the numerous anniversary Obits, &c. for the repose of the souls of the found- 
ers, their relations and friends. 

" This Collegiate foundation consisted of a provost, curate, sixteen prebendaries, a 
sacristane, bedall, minister of the choir, and four choiristers. 

" The Provost, for his maintenance and support of his dignity, was to receive the 
fruits, rents, and profits, together with the adjacent manse, or parsonage-house, and 
glebe belonging to the church, with the right of chusing a Curate, to whom he was to 
allow the sum of twenty-five marks yearly, with a house near the church, to dwell in. 
The Curate, in the provost's absence, was to ofBciate in his stead, to preside in the choir 
in the absence of the two senior prebendaries, and not to be removed but by an act of 
the Provost and Chapter. 

" The second prebendary had a stipend of forty marks yearly, arising from his prebend 
of Eay\l'\stoun. 

" The revenue of the third was twenty-nine marks per annum, out of his prebend of 
Craigcruch. 

" The profits of the fourth, from his prebend of Marchiston, amounted to twenty 
marks yearly. 

" The fifth, from his prebend of Grotall, fifteen marks, and an annuity of seven 
marks in Edinburgh. 

" The sixth, from his prebend of >S'^ Andrews, and the profits belonging to the 
chaplainry o{ St. Andreivs in the Church of St. Giles. 

" Tiie seventh received the revenue of his prebend of St. Michael, in the said Church 
of St. Giles. 

" The eighth, the produce of his prebend of St. Michael de Monte Tomba in the 
Church of St. Giles. 

" The ninth received that part of the income of his prebend of the Holy Cross, aris- 
ing from the benefactions of John White and Stephen Kobertoun, amounting to thirty 
marks yearly. 

" The tenth had that part of the profits of his prebend of St. Salvator, of thirty 
marks per annum, founded by John Stury and Stephen Robertoun, at the Altar of the 
Holy Cross in this church. 

" The eleventh, from his prebend of St. John the Baptist, the foundation of John 
Peblis, and Sir William Preston, the sum of twenty-seven marks yearly. 

" The twelfth had the profits of his prebend of St. Nicholas, amounting to sixteen 
marks yearly, together with four maiks from the foundation of Thomas Ker, at the Altar 
of St. Duthac, in this church. 

" The thirteenth received the produce of the prebend of Sancte Crucis de Lucano, 
amounting to sixteen marks yearly, and four marks annually out of the chaplainry of 
St. Duthac.

" The fourteenth had the profits of the prebend of St. Sebastian, with the surplus- 
age of the income of the chaplainry at St. Duthac's Altar. 

" The fifteenth received the revenue of his prebend of the Sacristan, which were the 
profits of the parish clerk's office, anciently due to the sacristan. 

" The sixteenth had the produce of his prebend of Minister Chori, amounting to 
six marks per annum, with the small oblations at the lights at St. Mamoch's, and to have 
a beddal under him. 

" The four choiristers or singing boys, who were allowed by the Common Council, 
and admitted by the chapter, had an allowance of five commons each. 

" The curate, prebendaries, sacristan, and minister, besides the stipends above men- 
tioned were allowed the profits of the chaplainries of Our Lord, founded by John Cook- 
son, at the Altar of Nostre Domine, and that at the High Altar, by John Cliddisdale, 
which were divided amongst them. 

" The sacristan, minister, and choiristers were presented by the Common Council ; 
the prebendaries of Le Foure's foundation were collated by the Bishop ; and the rest in 
the Town's Gift, and admission to the Chapter, by virtue of a grant from the King as 
aforesaid." 

Mr. William Forbes, Perpetual Vicar, was advanced to the Provostship 
of the newly erected Collegiate Church. He was educated at St. Andrews, 
his name occurring among the Determinants in 1448, and of the Licen- 
tiates In 1451 iu that University. In the year 1464, he was elected Rector.^ 
After his appointment as Provost of St. Giles, Forbes obtained a charter 
under the Great Seal, dated 2d of October 1478," confirming to him for life 
an annual pension or stipend of 220 marks, which had been granted by the 
Provost, Bailies, and Community of Edinburgh ; and in an old inventory of 
the town's charters, &c., there is entered, — " Item, ane discharge granted 
be Mr. William Forbess, Provost of the Colledge Kirk of St. Geill, wherby 
he dischairges Thomas Yair, Thesaurer of Edinburgh, and Johne Quhythed, 
fermorer of the Kirk of Dunbarnie, the soume of ane hundreth and ten 
merkis for the Witsunday termes maill of the fermes of Dunbarnie." This 
discharge is dated the penult of September i" iiij' four scoir yeiris. " 

But we find that two years later he was obliged to institute a suit in 
Parliament against the Magistrates for recovery of his stipend, amounting to

xj" (eleven score or 220) marks. The Lords Auditors, on seeing the obli- 
gation of the Magistrates, with the King's confirmation, ordained them to pay 
the Provost's stipend on pain of imprisonment in Blackness Castle.^ The name 
of Forbes, as Provost of St. Giles, appears so late as the year 149G, in the 
grant of part of his glebe for the enlargement of the cemetery ; and he may 
have survived till the commencement of the sixteenth century, as there 
appears no intermediate person as Provost between himself and his suc- 
cessor, who afterwards became Bishop of Dunkeld, and holds a distinguished 
place in early Scottish literature. The following is a fac-simile of his signa- 
ture in 1477-8. 

Gawin Douglas, third son of Archibald, fifth Earl of Angus, by 
Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Lord Boyd, Lord High Chamberlain of Scot- 
land, was the next Provost of St. Giles. He was born about the year 1474, 
and was educated for the Church. In the registers of the University of St. 
Andrews, his name occurs in the lists of Incorporati in 1489, of the Determi- 
nantes in 1492, and of the Licentiati, or Masters of Arts, in 1494.^ ^Vith his 
high family connexions, it was not likely that Douglas would fail in securing 
preferment. We accordingly find that in 149(3, he had a grant of the teinds 
of Monj-musk in Aberdeenshire.' Two years later he obtained from the 
Bang a presentation to the parsonage of Glenquhom when it should become 
vacant by the resignation of Sir Alexander Symson.* He also became Par- 
son of Lyntoun, and Eector of Hawch now known as Prestonkirk, in East 
Lothian ; but the dates are uncertain. As the latter preferment has fre- 
quently been mistaken, a few explanatory words may be added. Sir John 
Ireland was parson of Halch in June 1493, when a suit was heard in Parlia- 
ment regarding his right of pasturage on the moor of Preston.^ In his

dedication of the Vitce Episcoporum Dunkeldensium to Bishop Douglas, 
Alexander Myln styles him Rector de Hauche. By mistaking the name, 
Bishops Sage and Keith call him Hector of Heriot, a parish about sixteen 
miles to the south of Edinburgh ; while later writers supposed it signified 
Hawick in Teviotdale. But the true reading of the original MS. is Hawche ; 
and in the earliest manuscript of his Virgil, he is expressly styled " Pro- 
vost of Sanct Gylys Kyrk in Edinburgh, and Person of Lyntoun in 
Lothian.'" 

In his allegorical poem, T]ie Palice of Honour, written in the year 
1501, Douglas concludes with a poetical address to King James the Fourth, 
in which, with what may be called false modesty, he refers to his own " vul- 
gair ignorance," and says, 

Ressave this roustie rurall reljaldrie, 
Laikand cunning, fra thy pure leige unlaird. 

It may at least be conjectured that when the Provostship of the church be- 
came vacant, this' performance had some effect in inducing the King to bring 
the author from his rural occupations, and to advance him to a place of con- 
siderable dignity and emolument. The precise date of his appointment is 
uncertain, but we find from the Treasurer's Accounts, that the sum of nine

which his name occurs as a witness with this designation." In the minutes 
of the Lords of Council, Gawin, Provost of St. Giles's Church, is recorded as 
present in February and March 1504-5, and again in 1509. That his name 
does not occur in the minutes of the intermediate years may have been oc- 
casioned by his absence from the kingdom. In some proceedings before the

Lords of Council, connected with his own advancement when nominated to 
the vacant See of St. Andrews, there appeared on the 6th of July 1515,-

translation of the iEneid of Virgil into Scottish verse, the work which has 
conferred so much lustre on his name, was the labour of eighteen months, 
and was completed, he informs us, on the 22d of July 1513, or seven weeks 
before the fatal battle of Floddon. He further states that it was undertaken 
at the request of his cousin, Henry Lord Sinclair,^ whom he characterizes as 
"Father of books, protector of sciences and lare (or learning) ;" and his 
epistle, directed to this noble patron, begins, 

My Lord, to your nobilite in effect,

Archibald, Earl of Angus, at this time was Provost of Edinburgh. 
Hume of Godscroft relates his attempt to dissuade the Scottish monarch from 
that rash undertaking which entailed such calamitous eflFects upon the coun- 
try. Among other friends and relations at Floddon, Douglas lost his two 
eldest brothers. On the last day of September 1513, we find from the 
Council Records of Edinburgh, that he was admitted a freeman of the city.

During the reign of James the Fourth, various burgesses of Edinburgh 
became liberal benefactors to the Church of St. Giles, chiefly for the endow- 
ment of altars. Among these may be mentioned, besides William Forbes 
first Provost of the Collegiate Church, Walter Bertram, Provost of Edin- 
burgh in 1481, and again in 1494 ; Walter Chepman of Ewerland, our 
Scottish Caxton ; Elchard Hopper ; Sir Alexander Lauder, also Provost of 
the city for several years from 1501 to 1511 ; Eichard Lawson of Hieriggs, 
and Janet Elphinstone, his spouse ; Andrew Mowbray, apparently connected 
with the Mowbrays of Barnbougle ; Archibald Napier of Edinkellie and 
Merchiston ; Alexander Rynde, and Robert Vaus ; while the incorporated 
trades seem to have vied with each other for the support and decoration of 
the altars of their patron saints. Among the persons we have named, 
Chepman is particularly worthy of notice. He had been employed at the 
Court of Holyrood as clerk (clericus), and also as a merchant, from the 
early part of the King's reign. In the year 1507 he obtained letters of 
exclusive privilege for the establishment of a printing preas.^ He had

endowing a secular priest to officiate continually at the Altar of St. John 
the Evangelist, in the chapel which he had recently founded (in capella 
ipsius per me noviter fundata) in the south part of the Church of St. Giles, 
for the welfare of the souls of the King, the Queen, and their offspring, as 
well as for himself and his relations. Within four weeks of the date of this 
charter, James the Fourth met his untimely fate at the field of Floddon. 
After the lapse of nearly fifteen years, Chepman gave a fresh proof of his 
attachment to the memory of his royal master, having in 1528, when far ad- 
vanced in years, endowed another chaplainry at the Altar of Jesus Crucified, 
within the mortuary chapel of the Holy Cross situated in the lower part of 
the cemetery of St. Giles.^ By this foundation, prayers were appointed spe- 
cially to be offered for the souls of the King, the Nobles, and others slain at 
Ftoddon ; for the souls of his present as well as former spouse ; and for the 
souls of all the faithful of both sexes, buried or to be buried within the col- 
legiate church or in the adjoining cemetery. The religious services thus 
prescribed ceased during the second generation, and the mortuary chapel 
was demolished ;' but the charter itself has been preserved, with Chepman's 
signature and seal as follows : —

Walter Chepman died in the year 1532 or

RoBERT Crichton, who appears to have been the immediate successor 
of Bishop Douglas as Provost of St. Giles, must have been born towards 
the close of the fifteenth century. He was a younger son of Sir Patrick 
Crichton of Cranstoun Riddell, and nephew of George Crichton of Nauch- 
ton, who was Abbot of Holyrood (1516-1526) and Bishop of Dunkeld 
(1527-1544), and through whom he evidently obtained, at an early period 
of life, his preferment in the Church. He was educated at St. Andrews, 
where he was incorporated in the year 1512. To his name, Eobertus 
Crichton, there is added, " Propositus Edinburgi," by some later hand. 
In the list of Determinants or Bachelors of Arts, in Pcedagogio, primus 
actus, in the year 1514, Robertus Crichton is marked dives, a distinc- 
tion from the paitperes or poor students who paid no fees ; and on the 
23d May 1516, he was admitted a Licentiate. Before he had taken his 
Masters' degree, he was elected Parish Clerk of the Aisle and Altar of 
Holyrood, vacant by the decease of Patrick Bellenden.' The date of his 
actual preferment to St. Giles's Church is uncertain. In the Provost's 
absence, the Curate or first Prebendary acted as President, " for the guid 
rewle to be had in their College of Sanct Gele."^ On the institution of 
a Prebend, 12th of June 1521, Magister Robertus Crichton is styled " Pre- 
positus Ecclesia? coUegiatse Beati Egidii de Edinburgh," but it is added, 
he was at that time absent, " nunc causa studii in remotis agentis."'

His resort abroad, at a later period at least, was rather to insure his own 
preferment, than to prosecute his studies. His uncle, George Crichton, 
Bishop of Dunkeld, died in 1543-4, and is said to have made a resignation 
of the See in Robert's favour, who proceeded to Rome for the purpose of 
urging his suit. But the interest of the Governor secured the appointment 
for his natural brother, John Hamilton, Abbot of Paisley, early in 1545; 
and proceedings by the Scottish Parliament were instituted in August 154(3, 
against Mr. Robert Crichton, Provost of Sanct Gells Kirk, for opposing the 
presentation of John Abbot of Paisley to the vacant See of Dunkeld, " as 
prejudicial to our Soverane Ladyis interest;"^ and in a letter from Patrick 
Liddale, dated at Rome, 17th October 1546, it is stated that " Bonar 
(Bishop of London) laborit to got command fra the Pape to cause the buUes 
of Dunkeld be sped in favour of the Provost of St. Gelis Kyrk ; because he 
could nocht cum speed thereof, he stopit [David Panter, Bishop of] Ross, 
be sinisteris informationis."' A vacancy having occurred at St. Andrews, 
in May 1546, Hamilton after a protracted interval of three years, was pro- 
moted to that See, and Crichton became his successor as Bishop of Dun- 
keld.^ On the 17th March 1549-50, the Chapter of Dunkeld held a meeting 
sede vacante, but in the course of that year he was consecrated Bishop. He 
however seems still to have retained the Provostry of St. Giles, as he is so 
designated in charters dated in 1551, and the two following years.* But on 
these occasions, Lawrence Tod, as deputy, acted in his place, being styled 
Vicar, and President of the Church of St. Giles.' 

James Chisholme was the last person who held the office of Provost 
of St. Giles, but the date of his appointment is uncertain. From some law 
proceedings in January 1566-7, instituted by James Chisholme,* Provost,

certain teinds of kirklands assigned to their use, it is stated that a lease for 
nineteen years had been granted by them to Laurence Lord Oliphant in 
June 1551. Notwithstanding the odium attached to the Reformers, there 
can be no doubt that great indulgence was shown to the Popish incum- 
bents of Church livings in allowing them a certain proportion of the 
revenues during their lives, except in cases of such as had incurred the 
penalties of forfeiture for civil crimes. In the suit referred to, it was ad- 
judged that the right to the annualrents belonged to the said Provost and 
Prebendaries, as the lawful superiors for the time being. Chisholme 
also continued in possession of the Provost's house and glebe, and the Pre- 
bendaries theirs in like manner ; so that when John Knox became mini- 
ster of Edinburgh, in 15(j0, the Magistrates and Council were under the 
necessity of providing him accommodation, in the dwelUng-house at the 
Netherbow which still retains his name, and which has recently undergone 
the process of restoration. Chisholme probably belonged to the Cromlix 
family, but no certain information regarding his history has been discovered. 
A fac-simile of his signature may be added, as it occurs in the lease of his 
dwelling-house, which he granted to David Lord Drummond, and Lilias 
Ruthven, his second wife, at Stobhall, 2d of July 1566, for the annualrent 
of five marks, reserving to himself or the provost and curate of the church 
a bed-chamber within the said dwelling-house, when he should happen to 
be resident.^ 






Before alluding to the changes which took place at the period of the 
Reformation, a few notices of a miscellaneous nature, in connexion with St. 
Giles's Church, may be selected. In the first volume of the Council Regh-

fer, among " Certane auld Statutis collcctit furth of tlie revin (torn) auld 
bukis of the Toun of Edinburgh," several entries occur, imposing fines for 
breaking the Statutes, one-half or two-thirds of such fines being appro- 
priated to " the Kirk wark of St. Giles." Some of these statutes were ap- 
plicable to the freighting of vessels to Flanders, others to the grinding of meal 
at the common mills, and the buying and selling wines at fixed prices. The 
freemen of the various crafts, upon their admission, were liable to a tax, which 
was appropriated to the same purpose. It is not less worthy of notice that 
when King James the Third, in 1482, granted the office of sheriffs of the 
borough of Edinburgh to the Provost, Bailies, Council, and Community, he 
bound them to apply a portion of the profits accruing from the otfice to the 
celebration of the services in St. Giles.^ Other penalties applied to " the 
Kirk wark" are more singular. On the 7th of November 1485, it was 
enacted that none of the common rents be set to " ony man of Leith ; " and 
that no one shall have " in his service ony persoun dwelland in Leith," under 
the penalty of £10 to the Kirk wark, and the loss of his freedom for a 
year and a day." In 1520, William Forsyth was fined £5 •' for sellino- of 
his wyne opinlie in the tavernis of Leith." In 1522, two persons were to 
have their effects distrained by the town's officers for " selling of their wj'ne 
for xiid. the pynt," the half of the sum to be applied to Sanct Gelis wark, the 
other half to St. Anthon's altar. In August 1498, as a security for prevent- 
ing the frequent disturbances in the streets of Edinburgh, which usually ended 
in bloodshed and murder, both merchants and craftsmen were enjoined to 
have in their booths "defensabill geir, sikas jak, sellet, burgandynis, o-luifis 
of plait, and ane hand-ax or sword ; " and to be in readiness, when the alarm 
was given, to meet the provost, bailies, and quartermasters, for repressing 
such tumults, under the penalty of £20 " to the Kirk wark ; " and the person 
who was not of substance to pay this fine, was " to be set on the goif, and thair

harsh penalty incurred by poverty. On the 4th of January 1511-12, John 
Rynde, prebendary of Railston, with the consent of the provost, bailies, &c., 
gave a lease of the quarry of Railston, or Ravelston, for the yearly sum of 
three pounds and a cow's grass, the tenant binding himself to furnish stones 
for the Kirk wark, and to the neighbours of the town, at the old prices. This 
quarry, about a mile to the north-west of Edinburgh, is supposed to have 
formed part of the extensive freestone quarries of Ravelston on Corstorphine 
hill, and to have furnished the stones with which the public buildings in the 
city continued to be erected, including the Parliament House and Heriot's 
Hospital.' In March 1541-2, Sir Richard Lawsoun, prebendary, set in feu to 
Alexander Scott, son of Walter Scott, the lands of Grottell, also in the vici- 
nity of Edinburgh, for three marks yearly. In July 1540, James Prestoun 
conveyed to the town his house and land at the east entry of their College 
kirk of St. Geill ; and at the same time the occupiers of the booths pertain- 
ing to the town were made liable for the feu-duties of their booths for the 
period of five years, " to the eflFect that with the samyn James Person's 
[Prestoun's] land at the east end of the kirk may be bought, and make an 
entres to the kirk for the honour of God and policie of the gude town." 
In October 1543, John AVatsoun, "glassinwricht," for the annual sum of six 
marks, undertook, during his lifetime, to uphold the whole glass and win- 
dows of the kirk, and to furnish glass, lead, and tin ; the Dean of Guild 
engaging to provide iron, scaffolding, and ladders, when such were required. 
In January 1552-3, James Lauder, prebendary of their choir, obtained a 
licence " to pas furth of the realme to the partes of England and France, thair 
to remane for the space of ane yeir nixt efter the dait heirof, to the effect 
that he may have and get better erudition in Musik and Playing nor he hes ;

In July 1554, Andro Mansioun " wrycht to the bigging of the stallis of the

manner of completing his task, that they awarded him an annual pension of 
ten marks for a period of ten years. On the 12th of April 1559, Mansioun 
of his own free will resigned this pension which he had " in reward of 
his labours upon the stallis of thequeir." Three months later, it was found 
necessary for the safe custody of the stalls to have them removed to the 
Tolbooth. But without dwelling on such matters, however curious the 
detail may be, it is of more importance to allude to the changes in which 
St. Giles's Church was involved by the great movement known as The 
Reformation. 

The people of Scotland had, for nearly thirty years, been gradually 
preparing for such a momentous event, and for extirpating from the land all 
objects of idolatry. The frequent spectacle of persons committed to the 
flames on the Castle Hill of Edinburgh, and in other places, on the charge 
of heresy, instead of repressing, only excited the sympathy and prompted 
the inquiries of the spectators. In regard to Edinburgh, it had long been 
customary on the 1st of September to celebrate the anniversary of the tute- 
lar saint, by a public procession through the streets ; and a figure of St. 
Giles carved in wood, the size of life, and mounted on priests' shoulders, 
had hitherto formed a conspicuous object. In the year 1558, notwithstand- 
ing the prevalence of the Reformed opinions among the citizens, it was 
resolved to celebrate this festival with more than ordinary solemnity, but 
which. In less troublous times, might have assumed the character of an auto 
da fe ; and several heretics, it is said, were reserved for this occasion, to 
bear faggots and perform public penance, while the Queen-Regent was to 
countenance the procession with her presence. But before the anniversary 
arrived, Knox states that " the images were stollen away in all parts of the 
country ; and in Edinburgh was tliat great idolle called Sajict Gile, first 
drowned in the North Loch, and after burnt, which," he adds, "raised no 
small trouble at the time." This trouble refers to an injunction of the 
Archbishop of St. Andrews either to recover the old Sanct Geill, or to 
replace this "great idoll" with another, under the penalty of his great 
cursing. The magistrates of the city thought such a charge to be unjust.

and desired that prelate to find a warrant in Scripture for setting up images ; 
and " because they obeyed him not, he caused his curate, Tod,^ to curse 
them as black as coal ; from the which they appealed to his unholy father 
the Pope."" It would occupy too much space to refer further to this Appel- 
lation ; but matters of greater importance intervening, "this afi'air passed in 
oblivion."' Knox has given a detailed account of the tumult on the day of 
the procession. 

It may here be noticed, that the earliest existing accounts of the Dean 
of Guild show that some emoluments were derived from the Church of St. 
Giles. The following table exhibits the sums received during six years 
prior to the Reformation ; and shows what trifling offerings were then 
brought to the shrine of the patron saint : —

A few days later, "the Congregation of Edinburgh elected and chose 
John Knox, publicly in the Tolbooth of Edinburgh, for their Minister 
the 7th of July 1559." In the previous month, the Council had given direc- 
tions for the safe custody of the Jewells, vestments, ornaments, and silver 
work of the High Altar. On the 12th of July, the stalls of the queir or 
choir, were directed to be removed to the Nether Tolbooth for their pre- 
servation ; and on the 29th, a meeting took place between the Queen's Com- 
missioners and a deputation from the Lords of the Congregation, at which 
the latter asserted their rights to " the Hie Kirk of this Town, callit Sanct 
Geillis Kirk." ' 

In November 1559, the affairs of the Congregation were so changed, 
that they departed hastily from Edinburgh, and the French auxiliary troops 
having taken possession of the city, the Romish worship was restored, 
and St. Giles's Church was consecrated anew by the Bishop of Amiens.^ 
But this state of things was not of long continuance. In the month of 
March following, Archibald Douglas of Kilspindie, Provost, and the Council 
ordained the Dean of Guild " to reparrel the Kirk, to lay the throuchis 
(grave-stones) thairof of new, and sparge (whitewash) the same, and to mend 
the windows, and to make convenient seats in the church.'"^ In the pre- 
vious month, the annual rents due to certain prebendaries were ordered to 
be paid ; but discharged any future payments to others of their number 
"because they have not awaited upon the divine service."" In the Dean 
of Guild's disbursements, in May or June 1560, we have this entry : " Item,

be served with three bells, the Council ordered the fourth, called the Mary 
bell, to be taken down ; and on the 2Gth, this bell and the brazen pillars were 
appointed to be converted into artillery for the town's use, and, if need be, 
licence given to send them for this purpose to Flanders.' This intention 
had not, however, been carried into effect, as in October following, the bell 
called the Mary bell, with the whole brazen pillars, and other brass work that 
pertained to the kirk were sold to Adam Fullarton, in respect he had been 
the highest bidder after they had several times been put to "roup" through 
the town." The sum received for these articles was twelve score pounds.^ 

The silver work, jewels, and other ornaments belonging to the church 
had previously been disposed of, in conformity to the following minutes of 
the Town Council : —

It might have heen interesting to ascertain the fate of this precious 
relic, when removed from its silver shrine, and despoiled of its gold ring set 
with a diamond ; but "the Arm-bane of Sanct Geill" had apparently lost 
all value in the eyes of the Reformed Council, and produced no sum to be 
entered in the Town's Accounts. At a later period, on the 24th of June 
1562, " the prouest, baillies, and counsale ordanis tJie idole Sanct Geyll to

The great religious question having been determined in August 1560, 
when the Scottish Parliament sanctioned the Presbyterian forms of disci- 
pline and church government, " all claim and title to altars and revenues in 
the kirk " were discharged, and regulations prescribed for the accommoda- 
tion of the inhabitants. St. Giles's Church having thus been stripped of its 
sculptured images and decorations, and the numerous altars removed, a por- 
tion of it continued to be used for public worship by the community, John 
Knox being sole minister of Edinburgh, with the assistance of a reader. 

In February 1560-1, the Council ordered the Dean of Guild, with all 
diligence, to complete the stone gable at the west end of Sanct Gelis Kirk, 
and other necessary work within the said kirk. This may probably account 
for the disappearance of any traces of the great western door. In March 
1568, he was directed " to belt and mend the great window of the east gable 
of the kirk, and the window in Sanct Thomas Aisle;" " the great wyndois 
of Sanct Gelis Kirk, having been blawin down, and the maist part of the 
rufe tyrvit (uncovered) be the last greit wynd, swa that the pepill sail 
nocht convene thairintill at preching and prayer." 

But the Church of St. Giles suffered not only from such accidents, as 
well as from the over-zeal of the early reformers, but also from the effects 
of civil contention, when Sir William Kirkaldy of Grange and Queen Marj^'s 
adherents retained possession of the Castle. On the 28th of March 15?!, 
Kirkaldy took forcible possession of St. Giles's Church, and placed some of 
his men in the steeple to keep the citizens in awe. On the 4th of June, " the 
men of weir in the steipill slappit all the pendis of the kirk for keeping thairof 
aganis my Lord Regent ;" and on the 20th, " there was placed in the steiple 
of Edinburgh thre peices of brasin ordinance, with victuallis and uthers ne- 
cessaris for defending of the samyne." Calderwood repeats the same state- 
ment, that the rebels of the Castle began, on the 2d of May 1571, to fortify 
the town, and, on the same day, " to make holes in the vaute of the Great 



1 HISTORICAL NOTICES OF 

Kirk of Edinburgh, which they made like a riddell, to shoot thorough at 
suche as they pleased within the kirk, or at such as would prease to breake 
doun the pillers." ^ This state of affairs was partly terminated on the 27th 
of July 1572, when "the haill artillery in Edinburgh, about the walls, on 
the steipill-head of Sanct Geill, and Kirk of Field, war tane to the Castle of 
Edinburgh." " 

Towards the closing period of the Reformer's life, on returning to Edin- 
burgh on the last day of August 1572, he preached " in the Great Kirk : but 
because his voice was become weaker, he desired another place to teache in, 
if it were but to an hundreth persons ; which was granted." ^ For this pur- 
pose a portion of the church was enclosed as a separate place of worship. He 
died on the 24th of the ensuing November, and was interred in the common 
burying-ground at the south side of St. Giles's Church, in the presence of 
the Regent Earl of Morton, the rest of the nobilit}', and a great concourse of 
people. Like his great coadjutor Calvin, at Geneva, no stone or memorial 
appears to have been erected to mark the place of his interment ; but there 
is reason to believe it was nearly in a line with the entrance to the south 
transept, a little to the west of the base of Charles the Second's equestrian 
statue, in the Parliament Close. In such a site a statue of the great Refor- 
mer would have been much more appropriate. Three years previously, the 
Regent Earl of Murray, amidst general lamentations at his untimely fate, 
was buried within the church, and a monument was erected to his memory 
at the public expense. In restoring the church, it might have been thought 
that such a monument would have escaped any sacrilegious hand ; but to 
the disgrace of our civic authorities, it was allowed to be demolished, and 
the brass tablet, containing engraved figures of Justice and Faith, with an 
inscription written by Buchanan, was removed.* The monument itself can- 
not now be replaced, but it may be hoped that this monumental brass, one 
of the few existing specimens in Scotland, will yet, as it unquestionably 
ought, be replaced in the wall of the south transept.

The mortuary chapel connected with the cemetery already alluded to, 
was demolished in the year 1561/ In the following year" Queen Mary 
had conveyed, by a grant, the grounds of the Greyfriars to the Town of 
Edinburgh, for the purpose of a burial-place ; the Magistrates, in their 
supplication, having solicited that " Youre Hieness will gif to ws the yairdis 
of the Grayfrieris and situatioun thairof, being sumquhat distant from oure 
Toune, to mak ane buriale place of, to burie and eird the personis deceis- 
sand theirin, sua that thairthrow the air within oure said toune may be the 
mair pure and clene." On the same day, the Council ordained " Edward 
alias Sir Edward Hendersoun to tak cure and charge over the warkis of the 
toune at St. Geillis kirkyaird, the Blak, and Gray Frieris ; and ordainis 
to gyve him 2 shillings on the day for his labouris, induring thair willis." 
The erection of the Parliament House in 1631 was obviously the means of 
obliterating the public burying-ground round the church ; but the mass of 
human bones found in its immediate proximity during the process of reno- 
vation bore ample testimony of its previous existence. " By ray own obser- 
vation," says John Weever, in his Ancient Funeral Monuments, first pub- 
lished in 1631, "m the famous maiden city of Edinburgh, and in the parish 
churches of other towns, the sepidchres of the dead are shamefully abused, 
or QUiTE TAKEN AWAY ; yea, and the churches themselves, with religious 
houses and other holy places, violated, demolished, or defaced." ^ 

Near the north-east corner of the outer wall of the church there has 
been replaced a stone with the combined shields of Napier of Merchiston 
and Napier of Wright's Houses. This stone apparently belongs to the early 
part of the sixteenth century, and has the following insci'iption^ : —

bable, that should the pews and flooring of the High Church ever be 
removed, there might be discovered some unexplored vaults or a crypt 
which escaped desecration during the course of the successive changes which 
were made in transforming if not disfiguring this portion of the church. 

It had long been the practice to stipulate the repayment of certain sums 
for the redemption of lands, upon the high altar of the principal church of 
the parish, between the rising and setting of the sun. Many instances 
of this practice might be quoted from old deeds ; but it may be suflicient 
to refer to two, in which the Church of St. Giles is specially mentioned in 
the years 1452^ and 1543.^ After the altars had been destroyed, the same 
custom of discharging any mutual contracts within the walls of the church 
still continued. Even so late as the year 1715, Sir Walter Scott mentions 
a deed by Lord Sinclair, "setting forth, that although the fee of the 
estate of Ravenscraig was settled upon his son John, Master of Sinclair, 
yet that the said fee was redeemable upon the grantor making pay- 
ment of a rose noble, or four pounds Scots money, within St. Geill's 
Church in Edinburgh, at the Earl of Murray's tomb" ^ This part of 
the church, being the transept, must have remained open during the 
day, as appears from the various allusions to the Regent's tomb as a place 
of resort. A Popish writer. Father Alexander Baillie, of the order of St. 
Benedict, in 1628, has two chapters, " Of the Fruits of Knox his Evangel, 
the Douncasting of Churches," and " Of the Lamentable Profanation of 
St. Giles, &c.," in which he says, that this " our politician apostle and apos- 
tate Knox, . . . provoked the furious people by his own sacrilegious 
example to the spoiling and douncasting of churches, overthrowing of 
altars and organs, breaking of images, chalices, chandlers, basines, lauers, 
and whatsomever was made of gold or silver, apperteaning to the use of the 
Altare and sacrifice of the Masse ; which he and his comrads turned al to 
profane and unhallowed uses ; . . . They at the first made stables in Haly-

therin; bot also for that it was the Burial-place of our Kings and their ro^al 
children." This author seems not to have been aware of the state in which 
the Abbey of Holyrood had been left by the English army in 1547. He 
also asserts that sheep-houses were made of St. Antone and St. Leonard's 
Chapels ; and after expatiating " upon the deplorable state of the defaced 
and staggering steeples, the battered wals, broken doune pillars, and the floorc 
al overgrowne with grasse and defiled with filth," of the once royal, brave, 
and gorgeous church of Aberbrothoc, he says, " Bot leaving it thus wasted 
and deplored, / wil turn me, and take a vieio of St. Giles." Comparing it 
to the desolation of the Temple, he remarks, " If our Saviour Christ, when he 
came into the Temple of Jerusalem, did cast out al these who were buying and 
selling in it, and so heavily complained against them, that He sayd : ' It is 
written, my house sal be called a house of prayer, but yee have made it a den 
of theeves ;' how, I pray you, wold he say, if he were now entring in at S. 
Giles, and looking to bare wals and pillars al cled with dust, sweepings, and 
cobwebs, instead of painting and tapestrie ; and on every side beholding the 
restless resorting of people treating of their worldly effaires ; some writing 
and making obligations, contracts, and discharges ; others laying countes or 
telling over soumes of money ; and two and two walking and talking to and 
fro, some about merchandice or the lawes, and too many, alias, about drink- 
ing and courting of women, 3'ea, and perhaps about worse nor I can ima- 
gine, as is wont to be done al the day long in the common E.xchanges of 
London and Amsterdam, and other great cities ; And turning him farther 
towards the west end of the church, which is devided in a high house for 
the CoUedge of Justice, called tlie Session or Senathouse and a low house, 
called the Low Tolbooth, where the Bailiues of the Toune use to sit, and 
judge common actions and pleas in the one end thereof, and a number of 
harlots and scolds for flyting and whoredome inclosed in the other ; And 
there, I meane, if our Saviour were present to behold such abominable deso- 
lation, that where alters were erected, and sacrifices with continual praises 
and praiers were wont to be oflTered up to the Lord, in remembrance of that 
bloody sacrifice of Christ on the crosse, there now ar holes for whores, and

cages for scolds, . . . how heavily wold He complaine, that they have 
made his house not only a denne of theeves, bot a dungeon of devils ; and 
wold weep upon Edinburgh, as he did on Jerusalem, saying," &c.^ 

There was much truth in this statement, as might be shown from the 
Council Registers. It would, however, be in vain to aim at pointing out 
all the internal changes made in this church during the two following cen- 
turies. In 1580, the city had three ministers, and some years later a fourth 
was added. But the Presbytery, or ministers of Edinburgh, deemed it ad- 
visable that the town should be subdivided into Parishes ; and in April 1595, 
the Synod of Lothian and Tweeddale appointed some of their brethren " to 
travel with the said Kirk and Council of Edinburgh, that the congregation 
thereof may be divided in several flocks, that every pastor may know 
their own flock." This scheme was at last successful, and the town was 
divided into four quarters or parishes. A subsequent proposal to increase 
this division to eight parishes^ was not sanctioned; but on the 18th of 
April 1598, four additional ministers were chosen, two for each quarter, 
and the following arrangements made, by which the parishioners of the 
north-east quarter resorted to the (Trinity) College Kirk ; of the south- 
east, to the Great Kirk of St. Giles ; of the south-west, to the Upper 
Tolbooth ; and of the north-east quarter, to the East or Little Kirk.' 
Some disputes arose regarding the latter Kirk ; but on the 1st of 
August 1599, the King and Privy Council gave permission to the Pro- 
vost, Bailies and Counsell of Edinburgh " to demolishe the wall biggit 
betwixt the East kirk and the Mid kirk of Sanct Geillis, and to take in a 
piller of the same Mid kirk and adjoyne the same to the East kirk, that it 
may be the mair able to hald the haill parochynaris of that quarter; "* the 
former arrangements of the two churches to be restored when it shall please 
his Majesty, upon ten days' intimation. Calderwood states, that the East 
Kirk was thus enlarged about the beginning of April 1600.^ According to

THE CHURCH OF ST. GILES. Iv 

Eow/ Edinburgh, in 1630, had four churches, with eight ministers: those 
churches were the South- West or Grayfriars' kirk, the Great Kii'k or St. 
GeiUis kirk, the Little Kirk of St. Geilis or the Easter kirk, and the North- 
East or College kirk. Charles the First, in his zeal for Episcopacy, erected 
Edinburgh into a See on the 29th of September 1633, and by a royal letter, 
dated the 11th of October, directed the Council to have St. Giles con- 
verted into a Cathedral Church, " according to the first intention of the 
erectors and founders thairof," by the removal of various walls and parti- 
tions." In the further prosecution of this design, on the 10th of February 
1636, James Hanna, Dean of St. Giles, was ordered to repair to Durham, 
" to take a draught (or plan) of the Choir of the Cathedral Church in that 
city, in order to fit up and beautify the inside of St. Giles's Church after the 
same manner."^ The tumult which took place within its walls upon the first 
reading of the English service, and subsequent events, restored the church 
for Presbyterian worship. Dr. William Forbes was the first Bishop of 
Edinburgh, but, unlike his namesake, the first Provost of this Collegiate 
Church, he did not long enjoy his Episcopal preferment. His patent is 
dated on the 2d of January 1634, and he died on the 1st of April following. 
His successor, David Lindesay, was translated from Brechin in 1(J34, but 
was deposed by the General Assembly at Glasgow in 1638. In December 
1656, the East Kirk of St. Giles, according to Nicoll, being again divided, 
the eastmost kirk of the two was first completed, and then occupied. But 
within four years further changes were made, for the same contemporary 
authority says,^ "This yeir 1660, the twa eistmest kirkes of Edinburgh 
nerrest the great old kirk of St. Geill, were alterit ; the stane werk and 
devisioun betwixt thame wer alterit and takin doun, with thair loftis and haill

the Restoration, Episcopacy being again introduced, George Wishart, the 
historian of Montrose's Wars, was appointed Bishop of Edinburgh in 
1662. He died in 1671, and was succeeded by Alexander Young, who was 
translated to Ross in 1679, to make room for John Paterson, who became 
Archbishop of Glasgow in 1687. Alexander Rose, the last of this race of 
Prelates, was ejected at the Revolution in 1688. Father Augustine Haj- 
says, " Whilst I was young, St Giles was divided into three, viz., the New 
Church, whereof the first minister was named Dean, the Old Church, and 
the Tolbooth Church. Since the Prince of Orange mastered Scotland, 
there is a new division ; the fourth part is called the North Church."' This 
fourth church was commonly known as the Little Kirk, or Haddo's Hole, 
and formed the north-west division of the building. 

The remarks which have incidentally been made, might suggest the 
conclusion that the internal changes had destroyed the original design and 
proportions of St. Giles's Church. The building of parapet walls, and the 
removal of others, with the numerous subdivisions, no doubt prevented the 
form of the building from being easily recognised ; still its mediaeval charac- 
ter was not destroyed, and it only remained for an architect skilled in Gothic 
architectui-e, and embued with true taste and feeling, to render such a build- 
ing worthy of the metropolis of Scotland. Mr. Rickman, who was at least free 
from all local prejudices or feelings, and was familiar with the finest remains 
of English ecclesiastical architecture, in his notice of St. Giles, says, " The 
exterior appearance of the church is much deteriorated by its windows 
being despoiled of tracerj", the destruction of battlements, parapets, and 
pinnacles, and various modern alterations, but it is in contemplation to re- 
store it, and of this it is very capable, as the substantial part of the building 
is not much injured, and if the interior divisions were cleared, it would make 
one or even two very fine churches."- On the ground-plan, it would not be

difficult to point out that in its arrangements tlie proper rules of geometri- 
cal construction had been rigidly followed,* thus admitting the successive 
enlargements of the transept and chancel, and the addition of side aisles 
and chapels in conformity with such rules.^ In connexion with the ground- 
plan inserted at the close of these Notices, the following description given 
by Arnot in the year 1779,' may be quoted, as it shows the several purposes 
to which the building was appropriated. 

" The Church of St. Giles is a beautiful Gothick building, in length from 
east to west, on the outside of the waO, two hundred and six feet. Its breadth, a( 
the west end, is one hundred and ten feet, in the middle, a hundred and twenty-nine 
feet, but at the east end, only seventy-six. It is adorned with a lofty square tower, the 
top of which is encircled with open figured stone work, resembling the ornaments that 
enrich the circlet of an imperial crown. From each side and each corner of the tower, 
rises a slip of stone-work, which, meeting in the top with that which springs from 
the opposite side forms four arches intersecting each other, and compleating the figure of 
an imperial crown, the top of which terminates in a pointed spire. The church is built 
on a very elevated situation, and the height of the spire is a hundred and sixty-one feet. 

" At the Reformation, this Church was, for the greater commodiousness, divided by 
partition-walls. The four principal apartments are allotted for divine worship ; the 
lesser ones to other purposes. The chief of these divisions is called the New Church. 
It is formed out of the choir of St. Giles's. In it are the King's seat, those of the Lord 
Provost and Magistrates, and of the Judges of the Court of Session, this being the prin- 
cipal church in the city. 

The Old Chuech. 

" The central part of St. Giles is fitted up as a place of worship, for the accommo- 
dation of the citizens, and called the Old Church. 

The Tolbooth Church. 
" Upon the Reformation, tbe Presbyterians conceived an immoderate aversion at 
bestowing the names of any of the saints upon their churches ; but distinguished them 
by some circumstance respecting the time or manner of erection, of vicinity, &c. This 
church accordingly, which occupies the south-west quarter of St. Giles's, from its vicinity 
to the prison-house, was termed the Tolbooth Church.

Iviii HISTORICAL NOTICES OF 

HaddoVs-Hole Church. 

" This occupies the north-west part of St. Giles's. It was not fitted up as a place 
of worship till a.d. 1699. It takes the name of Haddoiv's-hole, from its having been 
made a prison, in which a gentleman of the name of Haddow was long confined. 

" Besides these churches, the smaller apartments in this cathedral are appropriated 
to several purposes. The chief of them is fitted up for the General Assembly. A throne 
is erected in it for his Majesty's Commissioner. The Convention of Eoyal Burghs is also 
held in this apartment. In other parts of this church, the City Clerks of Edinburgh, 
and the Kirk-Session Clerks, have their offices ; and one of the rooms is used as the city- 
cartulary [charter room] of Edinburgh." 

Several external chanf^es or repairs had been made on the walls, doors, 
and windows, prior to the close of the last century. The most important 
change was probably that which took place in the year 1560, by converting 
the western portion of the church, with some additions, into a Tolbooth or 
Court of Justice, and the eastern portion into a School.' But want of 
space prevents any further notice being taken of subsequent repairs and 
alterations, except to state that in the year 1648, the steeple required also to 
be in part rebuilt." In all the changes, however, which the building underwent 
during a period of more than six centuries, the old Norman doorway on the 
north remained entire. From the Council Records, 30th July 1760, we find 
it was represented " that the walls of the church commonly called Haddo's 
Hole were very himgrie, and ought to be pointed ; " and this was authorized 
to be done without loss of time, in " the most frugal manner." In the fol- 
lowing year some other necessary improvements were in progress, according 
to a plan exhibited to the Council, and these were directed to be done, still in 
" the most frugal manner." But it seems to have been in the year 1798, when 
some alterations were made upon the vestry of Haddo's Hole or New North 
Church, that the original Norman doorway fell a sacrifice to that indifiference 
to what was venerable for its antiquity, which then unhappily prevailed. 

It might be out of place to describe the various buildings which sur- 
rounded St. Giles's Church as they appeared in the earlier part of the present 
century, before the demon-spirit of improvement had taken possession of

the inhabitants of Edinburgh.* There is not perhaps a city in Europe, that 
has been so singularly unfortunate in having its most venerable public 
buildings ruined or destroyed, and its picturesque old houses swept away, 
in the course of modern improvements. The first false step consisted in 
changing the external character of the Parliament House, erected in the 
reign of Charles the First. This building was commenced in 1631, and 
completed in 1640, at an expense of £11, 600 sterling. "No one," says 
Lord Cockburn, " who remembers the old exterior, can see the new one 
without sorrow and indignation."' But while the High Street was improved 
by the gradual removal of the Luckenbooths, or pile of buildings to the 
north of the church, and of the Old Tolbooth or Jail, immortalized as the 
" Heart of Mid-Lothian," and by the demolition of the houses in Forrester's 
Wynd, and other tenements on the west, including the Council Chambers 
and the Goldsmiths Hall, as well as the numerous booths or shops erected 
between the buttresses, both on the south and north sides of the church, 
the building itself, having escaped the great fires of 1824, remained, it is 
true, a somewhat unsightly object, but capable, in competent hands, of any 
improvement. 

In the year 1817 or 1818, when plans for the restoration of this Church 
by Mr. Archibald Elliot, architect, were prepared, and exhibited by the 
Town Council, it was objected, that this was " an original building in the 
school of Mr. Elliot, not a renovation of the ancient building, and that the 
regularity of the plan gave it too much the character of an enlarged modern 
chapel." From the notices given of these plans, it is evident that all the 
most objectionable parts are slavishly copied in the actual i-enovation which 
took place ten or twelve years later. His plans,' although they bore no

resemblance to the ancient edifice, consisted at least of the most simple and 
appropriate mode of division of the building into an East and West Church, 
with the transept as a great hall for the meetings of the General Assembly. 
When the church was remodelled, the Preston Aisle was assigned for this 
purpose, but it proved so unsuitable, that it had to be abandoned, and con- 
verted into a church, for which it was not much better adapted. It cannot 
therefore cease to be a matter of deep and unavailing regret, that when in 
1829 it was resolved to improve St. Giles, the architect had not been expressly 
restricted to lopping off all modern excrescences, and to such restorations 
as might be required, in conformity to the original style of the building. 
But the genius of the architect was not to be trammelled with preserving 
what remained of the stone traceries of old windows, or carved niches and 
canopies, or antique turrets ; while aisles or chapels with lofty vaulted 
ceilings, ornamented bosses, and groined ribs, however imposing, were bv 
no means so convenient as they would be when separated into an upper 
and under apartment, for holding heating apparatus and for other purposes ; 
and deep, recessed porches, with rich groinings, although highly pictur- 
esque, were not to be compared with the three doorways, or principal 
entrances, all of one pattern, on which large windows might be supported. 
It might otherwise, at a comparatively moderate expense, have been con- 
verted into one principal church, and an Assembly Hall, and have preserved 
our venerable Collegiate Church to the delight of many generations as one 
of the finest objects in Edinburgh. Instead however of directing its 
restoration, as formerly, in "the most frugal manner," in addition to what 
the city funds could advance. Government was, unluckily, induced to con- 
tribute the sum of £12,600 in order to have the building renovated in 
the most approved and fashionable style of modern Gothic architecture ;' 
and OUR ancient venerable church was renovated with a ven- 
geance. Not a single ancient monument now exists within the walls; 
all the beautiful details and decorations were disregarded ; and, externally, 
with the exception of the steeple, it may be said that not one stone, or

THE CHURCH OF ST GILES. Ixi 

window, of the old edifice was allowed to remain. When Rickman there- 
fore says, "There are several ancient monuments in this church,"' it may be 
asked, What became of them ? In short, although a parish or collegiate 
church can never be compared with a great cathedral erected during the 
best times of Gothic architecture, it is no improbable supposition, that had 
St. Mungo's Cathedral in the west been renovated on the same principle, 
Glasgow might now have had plaster and whitewash instead of stone, the 
floor reduced to one level, the Lady Chapel removed as an incumbrance, 
the glorious Crypt, as, strange to say, it was in our own days, again filled 
with earth, and the Nave disfigured with pews and galleries. In some other 
locality, the Church of St. Giles, as it now exists, might have been orna- 
mental ; but it is no longer the historical church where Knox preached, 
where the General Assemblies from the period of the Reformation had 
usually held their meetings, in which so many stirring events were trans- 
acted, and in and around which the mortal remains of our most distin- 
guished citizens, and of many generations, had been deposited. An eloquent 
modern writer, in allusion to such restorations, says, " By the exertion 
of great national powers, and under the guidance of enlightened monarchs, 
we may raise magnificent temples and gorgeous cities ; we may furnish 
labour for the idle, and interest for the ignorant. But the power neither 
of emperors, nor qiieens, nor kingdoms, can ever print again upon the sands 
of time the effaced footsteps of departed generations, or gather together from 
tlie dust the stones which had been stamped with the spirit of our ancestors." - 

Previously to this remodelling of the church, begun in 1829 and ended 
in 1833, careful plans and elevations had been executed by direction of the 
Barons of Exchequer. These plans, drawn by the late Mr. John Chalmers 
are deposited in the Office of H.M. Board of Works ; and by the kindness 
of Robert Matheson, Esq., accurate copies on a reduced scale have been 
made for the present volume, in order to preserve some record of the original

edifice. The church had latterly been subdivided into four places of public 
worship, besides the City Clerk's chambers, and the old Police OflSce. The 
references on the ground-plan are added to point out these several divisions. 
We could have wished that some pains had been taken to preserve accu- 
rate views of the southern porch, the monuments, and other interesting 
objects which do not now exist ; with the exception of the round arch of this 
porch, which is now rebuilt between the south pillars of the centre tower, as 
the entrance to the Old Church. South St. Giles's Church, so inappropriately 
called Tlie Old Churcli, is formed of the south transept connected with 
parts of the Preston Aisle and of the chapels of 1387 which were not 
demolished. The proper Old Kirk of St. Giles must have been the nave 
and side aisles to the west of the centre tower, running parallel with the 
High or New Kirk until it was subdivided, and portions of it appropriated 
to the three churches marked in the ground-plan with the letters B, C, 
and D.
