1. Parish of Edinburgh, 1595-1800

Burgess, unless stated otherwise, means Burgess of Edinburgh on this page. Similarly, indweller means indweller (i.e. inhabitant) in Edinburgh.

The parish of Edinburgh was originally the area within the burgh wall of Edinburgh; it covered the High Street, the Cowgate, the Grassmarket and the closes off these. The limits of the burgh were extended in the later 18th century to include the New Town, which became St Andrew parish. The (sub-)parishes of the parish of Edinburgh within the Old Town in the later 18th century were: High Kirk (St Giles), Lady Yester's, Tolbooth, Tron, New Greyfriars, Old Greyfriars, New North Kirk, New Kirk, Old Kirk and (Trinity) College Kirk.
