URRIFF its a free burgh of barony (of which the Earl of Fife is
the feudal superior), the seat of a presbytery, and the capital of the
parish of that name, S43^ miles n.n.w. of Aberdeen, 17 n.n.w. of Old
Meldrum, and 11 s.s.e. of Banff, situate on a tributary stream of
the Deveron.near that river. Its charter, dated the lOch of March,
1511, was granted by James IV. in favour of Thomas Dickson, pre-
bend of Turriff; by this the inhabitants were entitled to hold a
weekly market on the Sabbath day, and three fairs anuuaUy, each
to continue eight days. A sheriff s smaU debt court is held quar-
terly in the Town HaU, and justice of peace courts when required.
Police courts are held on Thursday^:. In 1858 the householders
adopted certain provisions of the Police Improvement (Scotland)
Act of 1850, and latterly almost the i^ntire provisions of the more
recent act of 1862, in virtue of which the affairs of the burgh are
regulated and administered by nine commissioners of police, three
of whom are elected anuuaUv; these commissioners elect from their
own number one senior and two junior magistrates, who in their
turn appoint a procurator fiscal and clerk of court, and within
their jurisdiction exercise in aU cases of petty offences the
fuuctions of sheriff and magistrates of poHce. Turriff is one of
the most flourishing little towns in the north of Aberdeenshire.
The place is clean and neat, and gas-Ughted by a joint, stock com-
pany, formed in lb37. In the same year a branch of the Commercial
Bank of Scotland was estabUshed here, and subsequently three
other banks, aU of tiiem doing a prosperous business. One of these,
the North of Scotland Bank, has erected, at a cost of about £2,000,
a handsome building', situated at the junction of Main street with
High street, the st\i-_' of architecture being the old Scotch baronial
stj-Ie; the stone usf.il is the red sandstone from the quarries in the
neighbourhood; the tower contains a clock having dials facing
north, south and wl ;. which is fitted up with self-Ughting apparatus,
and serves as a towu' clock. There are several inns and posting
houses. The places i-i worship area church of the Establishment,
a Free chmxh, and an EpiscopaUan chapel, and the schools comprise
several public ones and a private academy in whicii boarders are
received. The vicinage of Turriff is of an agreeable character, and
the neighbourhood is very respectable, and several famiUes of

distinction are among the residents. Forglen House, the seat of
Sir Robert John Abercrombie, Bart., ft few miles distant, is one of
the most elegant and imposing mansions in the north of Scotland.
Among the industries may be named milling and woollen manufac-
turing. For a long time past Turriff had to a considerable extent
cultivated a pickled pork trade, but since the extension of railway
communication to it and the surrounding district, that business has
assumed formidable cUmensious, and Turriff, in this respect, may
now be regarded as tbo Chicago of Scotland. Fairs :re held on the
second and fourth Wednesday in each month, also S itarday before
the 27th of May and Saturday before the 23rd of November. The
population of the parish of Turriff in 1371 was 4,8'i8, of which the
town contained 2,277.
King Edward, a parish in the northern part of the county, is
12 miles in length from west to east, by from 2 to 5 in breadth, its
western extremity being washed by the Deveron; on the north it
is bounded by Gararie, on the east by Tyrie, and on the south by
Montquhitter and Tuiuiff. The general surface is undulating ; there
are extensive plantations, and the district is advanced in agricul-
ture. A streamlet, tributary to the Deveron, pursues a west^irly
direction through the parish, and on its right bank stands the ruins
of the ancient castle of King Edward, once the seat of the potent
Coniyns, Earl of Buchan. In 1S71 the parish had a population of
1,U5S persons.
New Byth, formed into a Quoad Sacra parish in 1868, is
bounded by Gamrie on the north, King Edward on the west, Turriff'
and Montquhitter on the south, and New Deer and Aberdour on tho
east. It is composed of part of King Edward, New Deer and
Alierdour, and was provided with a chapel in 1793. The village of
New Byth is situated al)out a mile from the public road, the inhabi-
tants being engaged chiefly in agriculture. Excepting towards the
the north and \\est, the general aspect of tho parish is bleak and
barren. Byth House, one of the seats of B. C. Urquhart, Esq., of
Old Meldriim, is situated ahout a mile north of the village, and is
sui'rounded with wood, the only relieving feature of the district.
Population, 2,216. Fishrie aud Crudie are viUagea in this parish.
Population of the viUage in 1871, 60y.
