Newburgh  Aberdeenshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Newburgh like this:

Newburgh, a seaport village in Foveran parish, Aberdeenshire, on the right side of the river Ythan, 7 furlongs from the sea, 5 miles SE of Ellon station, and 13¼ NNE of Aberdeen, under which it has a post and telegraph office, and with which it communicates daily by 'bus. Pleasantly situated, and greatly improved of recent years, it contains several substantial and commodious houses; possesses important facilities both for manufacture and for fishing; ranks as a subport of Aberdeen; and carries on commerce chiefly in exporting grain, and in importing coal, timber, lime, and bones. ...

Pop. (1841) 393, (1861) 541, (1871) 570, (1881) 645.—Ord. Sur., sh. 77, 1873.
