"MADDERTY, a parish in the Strathearn district of county Perth, Scotland, 9 miles W.S.W. of Perth. It contains the barony burgh of Craig, and the villages of St. David and Bellyclone. The size of the parish is 6½ miles by 5. The surface is level, and the soil, which is chiefly arable, is very fertile-there are about 450 acres under plantation. The average rent of arable land is about £1 12s. per acre. The river Pow, or Powaffray, runs along the northern border of the parish. It is in the presbytery of Auchterarder and synod of Perth and Stirling. The minister's stipend is £234. Here also is a Free church. On the banks of the Pow, in this parish, stand the ruins of Inchaffray Abbey, founded in 1200 by Gilbert Earl of Strathearn and his Countess Matilda. Maderty was given in 1607 by James I. to the Drummonds, together with the title of Baron Maderty. Remains of a Roman way to Ardoch are traceable."
