PITTENWEEM is a seaport, a royal
pari iamentary and police burgh, and a
ema'.l parish on the north shore of the
Firth of Forth, extending from east to west;
it has a small harbour for vessels drawing
under 12 feet, and a station on the Thorn-
ton Junction, Leven and East of Fife
^section of the North British railway, 5
miles south-west from Crail, 11 south-east
from St. Andrews, 21 north-east from Kirk-
caldy and 16 south-east from Cupar ; to-
gether with the two Ansfcruthers, Crail,
Cupar, Kilrenny and St. Andrews it forms
the St. Andrew's parliamentary district,
â– constituted under the " Reform Act of
1832," and returning one member. It is
governed by a provost, 2 bailies and 9
councillors, who are also the police com-
tnissioners. The parish, which is in the
small debt court of Anstruther, is bounded
north by Carnbee and Anstruther Wester,
â– east by the Anstruthers, south by the Firth
and west by St. Monance. The burgh,
was originally attached to a priory, some
remains of which stand on a hill above
the harbour ; it was created a royal burgh
in 1537 by James Y. whose charter was
confirmed by Charles I. The town consists
-of three good streets, with a few bye
thoroughfares, the houses generally bearing
.an ancient aspect. From the time of
its being erected into a royal burgh
until 1639, it appear® that Pittenweem was
a place of considerable note and trade ; but
from that period to the year 1645 it
suffered severely, no fewer than thirteen
Bail of large vessels belonging to this port
having been either taken by the enemy or
wrecked. It was here that the robbery
â– was committed upon the collector of the
â– excise by Wilson and Robertson, which led
to the outrages- of the Porteous mob and the
consequent catastrophe ; the house in which
'this transaction took place is still standing
on the north side of the street, north of the
church. It is now a fishing station of some
importance and fish curing is carried on
rather extensively, in addition to which the
trade in grain and potatoes is of some con-
sequence ; there are also two largo cooper-
ages, with sail making. Adjacent to the
monastic ruins stands the parish church,
.an ancient edifice with a turreted spire.
There are branches here of the National
Bank of Scotland Limited (branch), High
street, and the Clydesdale Bank Limited,
'in James street. Mrs. Irvine, of Grange-
muir, Sir Ralph William Anstruther bart.
.J.P., D.L. of Balcaskie, and Col. William
Baird J.P. of Elie, are the principal land-
owners. The area of the parish comprises
^66 acres; rateable value, landward, £700;
hurghal, £5,000; the population in 1891
was 1,991, and m 1901, 1,911. The popu-
lation in 1901 was, of the royal and parlia-
mentary burgh, 1,859, and police burgh,
The number of electors on the parliamen-
tarv register in 1903 was 298.
