[From Brown's Directory, 1881/2]


The parish of Santon (or St. Ann) lies between Port Soderick and the Santon Burn, and extends inland for about 3½ miles. The area is about seven to eight square miles. The coastline is high and dangerous contains several small inlets, of which Port Greenaugh, Port Soderick, and the mouth of the Santon Burn, are the largest. The principal head land is St. Ann’s Head. The surface consists of several low, hilly fields, sloping to the coast, with intervening depressions, the principal of which are Glen Greenaugh and Santon Burn Glen. The soil in general is poor, and agriculture backward. The population is entirely agricultural, and is sparsely scattered over the district. The population, in 1851, was 714, and in 1871 it was 628. The parish is a vicarage, and the present incumbent is the Rev. Robert Airey.
