Newington
   NEWINGTON, lately a quoad sacra district, in the parish of St. Cuthbert, suburbs of the city of Edinburgh; containing 3310 inhabitants. This is an elegant modern suburban part of the metropolis, on the south side, consisting chiefly of villas and handsome streets, and finely sheltered on the east by Salisbury Crags and Arthur's Seat. The district was divided from St. Cuthbert's by authority of the presbytery, in April, 1835; its greatest length was about three-quarters of a mile, and its greatest breadth about one-quarter, nearly the whole of which extent is covered with buildings. The ecclesiastical affairs were placed under the presbytery of Edinburgh and synod of Lothian and Tweeddale; and the patronage was vested in St. Cuthbert's Kirk Session: the stipend of the minister was £350, derived from seat-rents and two-thirds of the ordinary collections, with a site for a manse and garden. The church, erected by the Kirk Session in 1823, at an expense of £6372, contains 1623 sittings, of which seventy-four are free. The members of the Free Church have a place of worship. At a school, considered as parochial, from 160 to 200 children are instructed; but no salary is attached to it, nor are there any other emoluments than the fees, which amount to about £55 per annum. Seven other schools are all taught by females.
