Pathfinder Pack on The Society of Free Fishermen of Newhaven
In approximately 1504, Newhaven was founded to build warships for the embryonic Scottish Navy. It passed to the control of Edinburgh in 1510. The Society of Free Fishermen of Newhaven can be dated to at least 1572 and it survived until 1989, one of the oldest friendly societies in Scotland. For much of that time it was the most important institution in the village.
