Town Records

Tayport was created a burgh of barony by King James VI (1567-1625) in favour of Robert Durie in 1599, when its name was Ferryport-on-Craig. It was erected as a burgh of regality in 1725 for Robert Douglas, second son of Sir Robert Douglas of Glenbervie, Bt. The town's name became Tayport after the opening of the railway connection to Cupar and Dundee. In 1888 Tayport became a police burgh after the adoption of the General Police and Improvement (Scotland) Act. The police commissioners were replaced by Tayport Town Council in January 1901. Tayport Town Council was abolished in 1975 and its powers were assumed by Fife Regional Council and North East Fife District Council. These in turn were replaced by Fife Council in 1996.
