We have so many East Lothian stories to tell – and not enough time! We will put up a page about the parish of Saltoun, so please bear with us.

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.
