We have so many East Lothian stories to tell – and not enough time! We will put up a page about Dirleton Parish, so please bear with us. The parish also comprises the villages of Dirleton and Gullane and the hamlets of Kingston and Fenton.

In the meantime – you could help: contact us if you have stories about the parish and its people and we could help you tell them on this website.

In the 19th century, the inhabitants of the parish looked to their community for support and entertainment. The period saw a flourishing of specialist societies – many people served as committee members or were otherwise involved. This list has been compiled from almanacs, guides and the pages of the Haddingtonshire Courier – more detail might be found by consulting our records.
