Publication Account (1981)

Although one pre-Reformation churchman, Sir William Myreton, intended to found both a grammar school and song school in the burgh in 1825, his plan was never carried out (Millar, 1825, i, 377). However, by 1560, there was a flourishing grammar school in Crail founded by another churchman, David Bowman (Millar, 1895, i, 380). School until the 1890s was convened in the churchyard.

Information from ‘Historic Crail: The Archaeological Implications of Development’ (1981).
