Burgess, unless stated otherwise, means Burgess of Edinburgh on this page. Similarly, indweller means indweller in Edinburgh. (An indweller is an inhabitant; more specifically, an inhabitant who has not been admitted as a burgess.)

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 18th century were: New, Old, Tolbooth (earlier period) or High, Old, New North (later period) (these three being housed within the building of St Giles); Lady Yester's; Tron; New Greyfriars, Old Greyfriars; and (Trinity) College Kirk.

The date given is most likely the date of booking, prior to proclamation
d. = daughter; s. = son; p. = par. = parish; ser. = servitor / servitrix (i.e. servant)
N. E. p. = North-East (sub-)parish of Edinburgh
N. K. p. = North Kirk (sub-)parish of Edinburgh
N. N. K. p. = New North Kirk (sub-)parish of Edinburgh
N. W. p. = North-West (sub-)parish of Edinburgh
O. = Old
S. E. p. = South-East (sub-)parish of Edinburgh
S. K. p. = South Kirk (sub-)parish of Edinburgh
S. S. E. p. = South-south-east (sub-)parish of Edinburgh
S. W. p. = South-West (sub-)parish of Edinburgh

Note that there is just one register of marriages for the parish of Edinburgh, not separate registers for the individual sub-parishes. (The parishes of St Cuthberts and Canongate have their own registers. The 'West Kirk' of Edinburgh is St Cuthberts Kirk, and its parish was what was once open countryside outside the walls of the burgh. The Canongate parish was the area of the Burgh of Canongate, immediately east of the royal burgh of Edinburgh; Canongate parish included Holyrood Abbey.)

Ainslie's map of Edinburgh of 1780 may be found helpful, and there is a list of further maps of Edinburgh available here.

Some clarification of the division of Edinburgh into parishes is needed, but it is not straightforward and was subject to change:

First, with regard to the church buildings: St Giles Kirk was divided internally into three separate churches - eastern, middle and western sections. In the 1670s, the divisions were: eastern - New Kirk; middle - Mid or Old Kirk; western - Tolbooth Kirk. This division continued until at least 1877, at which time the divisions were: eastern - High Church; middle - Old Church; western - New North Church. Also, Greyfriars Kirk comprised Old Greyfriars Kirk - the eastern part - and New Greyfriars Kirk - the western part.

On 24 Dec 1641, the Town Council decided that the town should be divided into six parishes, as follows:

  1. North-west parish: From the West Port, on the north side of the street, up the Over Bow to the Castlehill, upon the south side, and down the north side of the High Street to William Reid's Close inclusive. Their church, the west part of St Giles and their minister Mr Robert Douglas.
  2. North parish: North side of the High Street from William Reid's Close, exclusive, to the Laird of Haltoun's house called the Black Turnpike. Their church the east part of St Giles, formerly called the choir and their ministers Mr Harry Rollok and Mr Alexander Henderson.
  3. North-east parish: From Haltoun's house to the Netherbow, with the town's lands on the south side of the Canongate and the Correction House. Their church the College Kirk and their minister Mr William Bennet.
  4. South-east parish: From the Netherbow to Peebles Wynd on the south side of the High Street, from the Cowgate Port on the north side of the Cowgate to Peebles Wynd and the south side of that street to Raplay's Close, excluding the College. Their church to be the new one, in course of building at the Tron and, till that be finished, the middle church of St Giles and their minister Mr William Colvin.
  5. South parish: The High Street, from Peebles Wynd, exclusive, to Forrester's Wynd and the north side of the Cowgate from the foot of Peebles Wynd to the foot of Forrester's Wynd, as also the bounds from the foot of Raplay's Close to the Potterrow Port and down the east side of the Horse Wynd, and including the Luckenbooths. Their church the middle part of St Giles, but, till the south-east parish vacates it, to worship in the Parliament House or College Hall, as shall be most convenient; minister, Mr Andrew Ramsay.
  6. South-west parish: South side of the High Street from Forrester's Wynd, exclusive, down the east side of the Over Bow to the Cowgate, thence in the Cowgate to the foot of Forrester's Wynd; the south side of the Cowgate from Potterrow Port, down the west side of the Horse Wynd to the West Port and including the College. Their church the Grayfriars Church and their minister Mr George Gillespie.

On 24 Aug 1655: the Town Council order that Lady Yester's Church shall be a separate parish and that the inhabitants of the most easterly part of the south-east parish shall be its parishioners and appoint Mr John Stirling minister.

Later, there was discussion of division into ten parishes.
