Haddington High Street In the 1100s David I made it a Royal Burgh and the county town of Haddingtonshire.
Haddington High Street. Haddington lies on the Great North Road, twenty miles to the east of Edinburgh. Though long bypassed by the A1, its position has through history meant it has served as a gateway to Edinburgh and to central Scotland. Haddington's origins lie very early in history and there was certainly a sizable settlement here by 1000. In the 1100s David I made it a Royal Burgh and the county town of Haddingtonshire. From 1139 there was a Franciscan church here, and Ada of Northumberland established a nunnery a little to the east in abut 1155. A remnant of the nunnery property survives in the shape of the ruin of St Martin' Kirk.
THE Haddington Burgh Schools were established at a very ancient date. The long-continued celebrity arid glory of the Haddington Burgh Schools departed after the unfortunate appointment of Rector Whyte in 1843. We find from history that they were in existence prior to the Reformation from Popery, that in 1559 the establishment of the Presbyterian form of church government was nearly perfected, and that schools were generally established throughout East Lothian. The schoolmasters of Dunbar, Spott, Haddington, and Prestonpans particularly distinguished themselves. He published a book called the Beauties of Arithmetic, which had a fair reputation at the time.
