Parish of Pittenweem

PITTENWEEM, a small sea-port, royal burgh, and parish, in the district of St. Andrew’s, county of Fife, 10 miles (S. by E.) from St. Andrew’s, and 24 (N. E.) from Edinburgh. This place, of which the name is of doubtful etymology, appears to have derived its earliest importance from the foundation of a monastery for canons regular of the order of St. Augustine. The church is an ancient structure, originally forming part of the buildings of the priory. There are a place of worship for members of the Relief, and an episcopal chapel.
