North Berwick is a coastal town in East Lothian, Scotland. At some time in its dim and distant past North Berwick must have been arable land where barley grew, judging by its name. Berwick comes from two Old English words, ‘bere’ meaning ‘barley’ and ‘wic’ meaning ‘farmstead.’ In the late 16th century the North Berwick witch trials were held at the harbour in the Auld Kirk Green area. It was said that Satan had made an appearance at a gathering of a coven of witches, although it is generally believed that this is a reference to Francis Stewart Hepburn the 5th Earl of Boswell. The people on trial were accused of witchcraft and treason against the King of Scotland, James VI who was later to become King James I of England too.
