Craig Of Madderty
- CRAIG OF MADDERTY, a burgh of barony, in the parish of Madderty, county of Perth; containing, with the village of St. David's, 181 inhabitants. The estate of Craig, on which the village is built, was erected in 1626 into a free burgh of barony, through the instrumentality of Lord John Madderty, by charter conferring power to hold a market every Friday, with four fairs yearly. Courts have been held occasionally within the barony, for settling disputes; but the village has latterly very much declined, and in its place has risen that of St. David's, in which is a school.
