   2) MARYBURGH, a hamlet, in the parish of Cleish, county of Kinross, 3 miles (N. N. W.) from Kinross; containing 39 inhabitants. It is situated in the south-eastern part of the parish, and on the high road from North Queensferry to Kinross. The Kelty water flows at a short distance south of the hamlet; and in the neigbourhood is a bridge which crosses that stream, called Kelty bridge. A school is supported by Sir Charles Adam, who supplies the master with a house and garden rent free, and pays him a salary of £15, in addition to the fees, which average about £30. A school for teaching female children to sew is also kept, by the wife of the schoolmaster, to whom Miss Adam pays £5 per annum.
   3) MARYBURGH, a village, in the parish of Fodderty, county of Ross and Cromarty; containing 403 inhabitants. This is a modern village, of very recent formation, and improving in population and extent. To its erection, and to that of the village of Keithtown, may be ascribed the late increase in the inhabitants of the parish. There is a place of worship here for members of the Free Church.
