LIBERTON is a parish in the small debt
court district of Dalkeith, including three
villages of its name — Upper (or Over)
Liberton, Liberton Kirk and Nether Liber-
ton, with Gilmerton (which see), and Green-
end. The kirk town is about 3 miles south
from Edinburgh, 3 north-west from Dal-
keith and Lasswade. Duddingston andCraig-
millar station on the North British Subur-
ban railway, which encircles the outskirts
of Edinburgh, is near the northern border
of the parish, and Gilmerton, on the Roslin
and Glencorse line, is close to the south-
eastern boundary. Water is supplied by
the Edinburgh and District Water Trust.
The old church of Liberton was removed in
1815 on the erection of the present struc-
ture, a building in the Gothic style, with
turrets and pinnacles ; the manse adjoins.
The inhabitants are engaged in agriculture
and the adjacent collieries. Greenend vil-
lage is about 4 miles north from Lasswade,
on the road to Edinburgh. Large quarries
of limestone are worked at Burdiehouse
and Straiton, and the freestone and whin-
stone quarries also employ many persons.
There are seven breweries, a malting, a
creamery and a margarine factory. Lieut.
Col. Robert Gordon Gordon-Gilmour, of
The Inch, Maj.-Gen. Sir Henrv Trotter
G.C.V.O., D.L. of Morton Hall, Mrs. Wau-
chope, of Niddrie Marischal, John Welsh,
of Moredun, and John L. More Nisbet. of
Drum, are the principal landowners. The
celebrated cave here, dug by George Pater-
son, a blacksmith, out of the solid rock, and
finished in 172-4, after five years' toil, con-
tains several apartments with bedsteads,
and a table with a large punch bowl, all
hewn out of the same material, and also
includes a smith's forge, a well and a
washing house. Here Paterson lived for
several years, and here he died about 1737.
Craigmillar Castle, sometime a favourite
residence of Queen Mary, stands on rising
ground of moderate elevation, and com
mands a beautiful and extensive prospect
over the surrounding country. The area
comprises 6,326 acres ; rateable value,
£54,323; the population in 1901 was 7,233
of which 74 in Edinburgh Royal burgh.
The population of the ecclesiastical parish
in 1901 was 4.016, and of the village, 546.
Jewel cottages form a village; the popula-
tion in 1901 was 390. Liberton Dams and
Braeside form a village in the parish; the
population in 1901 was 320. Greenend is
a village; the population in 1901 was 313.
Craigmillar is also a village; the popula-
tion in 1901 was 281. Straiton is a vil-
lage; the population in 1901 was 327.
