CUPAR FIFE
LS atown in Fifeshire, 22 miles N. E. of Kinghorn,
10 W. of St. Andrews, and 10 E. of Falkland, situa-
ted oh the banks of the river Eden at its junction
with the Marybnrn. The view of the town from al-
most any quarter is much concealed and circumscri-
- ped. The principal streets are the Crossgate, the
Slillgate, the Bonnygate, and St. Catherine-street;,
•which last is built on the plan of the houses in the
New-town of Edinburgh, and particularly thos<; on
the north side of that town. In this street are the
County-rooms and a Tontine of very superior ap-
pearance and accommodation. The principal trade
of the town is the manufacture of linen. There are
also nianufactures of leather, candles, ropes, bricks
and tilet, besides several breweries, corn and wank
mills. Here are two branches of Edinburgh banks,
the British Linen Company, and the Commer-
cial Bank of Scotland,' together with the Fife
Bank.: There is a parish church in Cupar, which is
■a collegiate charge; a Relief, United Secession,
Original Burgher, Baptist, and Episcopalian
Chapel; the latter, which is in St. Catherine's-street, ,
adds greatly to the beautv of the street. Here is \
also a new prison erected on the south side of the
river, which in appearance very much resembles the
prison in Glasgow, and in fact is more like a gen-
tleman's seat, than a house of confinement. There
are no remains of antiquity about Cupar of the
Castle, of which frequent mention is made in Scot-
tish history. The Castle-hill, where it stood, and
where the plays of Sir David Lindsay and the " Sa-
tj/re o/theThreeEttaiea" were acted iu 1535, is now
346
occupied with schools and a theatre ; and the spot,
which once resounded with the din of arms, has now
given way to learning and education. To the east
of the town there was a convent of Dominican or
Black Friars ; the steeple which is a very great oi-
nament to the town, was in part built by the prior
of St. Andrews in 1415, and tinished by Mr.William
Scott, who was tor many years minister of Cupar,
and who died in 1642. The schools here are sup-
plied with excellent teachers in all the useful
branches of education, and there is a public libiary
well stocked with books in the various branches of
literature and science. A Mr. Robert Tullis has
printed many excellent editions of the classics,under
the revision of Dr. John Hunter, of St. Andrews,
which, for correctness and accmacy. may challenge
a comparison with many in the metropolis. Cupar is
a royal burgh governed by a provost, three bailies, a
dean of guild, 13 guild councillors, who choose one
another, and eight trades' councillors or deacons,
elected by the eight corporations. There is a mar-
ket held in Cupar every Thursday, which is well
attended. As^Cupiy is the county town, and head
burgh of Fifeshire, the public business of the county
and burgh are transacted here, and the court.s oV
law and taxation are held at stated times. There
are eight annual fairs, 1st Thursday in January, 1st
Wednesday in February, O. S., 1st Wednesday in
April, last Wednesday in May, O. S., 2oth of June,
O. S., 25th of July, 0. S., 1st Thursday in October,
O. S., and llth of November, 0. S.
