There are no CWGC stones within this churchyard, but there are several War graves and other military graves. The War Memorial can be seen infront of the church gates. It is an old water fountain. (See photo below)

Bolton is a hamlet and the third smallest parish in East Lothian, Scotland. It lies approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Haddington and 20 miles (32 km) east of Edinburgh, and is an entirely agricultural parish, 6 miles (9.7 km) long by about 1.25 miles (2.01 km) wide. Chalmers' Caledonia states that "the most prominent objects which attract the antiquarian eye are the hills forts above Bolton of the earliest people. On Bolton Muir there had been an ancient camp in the field called "Chesters".

In 1389 the feudal barony of Bolton was possessed by Sir John Haliburton of Dirleton. By the time of the Scottish Reformation the lands of Bolton had passed to John Hepburn of Bolton, a cadet of James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. John Hepburn was involved in the plot to murder Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley and was executed for his complicity in 1568. The estate was forfeited and regranted to William Maitland of Lethington, in whose family it remained until 1696. Richard, Earl of Lauderdale, sold the barony of Bolton to Sir Thomas Livingston, who was created Viscount Teviot in 1696. In 1702 he passed it to Lord Blantyre. The principal proprietors in 1890 were Lord Blantyre, the Marquess of Tweeddale, Lady Connemara, Lord Sinclair, John Fletcher of Saltoun, Mr Baird of Pilmore & Kirkland; and Alexander Charles Stuart of Eaglescairnie, whose father had been commander of the army in Scotland, and Governor of Maltain 1841. Eaglescairnie was for centuries a residence of the Haliburtons.

Bolton Parish Church is a church in Bolton, East Lothian, Scotland. It is part of the Church of Scotland and (along with Saltoun Parish Church) serves the parish of Bolton and Saltoun. The earliest church at Bolton was erected in around 1240. It was placed under the superiority of the Canons of Holyrood Abbey in Edinburgh, and remained so for the next three hundred years. By 1804 the church had fallen into disrepair and the heritors agreed that something must be done.

In January 1805 the heritors met and decided that a new church should be built instead of repairing the old one, and that the new church should be capable of containing 250 people. By the end of 1809 the new church was built. In 1930 the pulpit was moved to its present position at the side of the East window, the choir was removed and other changes were made. In 1957 a central aisle was introduced and this further reduced the seating.

In the church porch is a Victorian "graveguard", a contrivance designed to thwart body-snatchers who sought to steal from the graveyard newly buried corpses for sale to the medical schools in Edinburgh. The graveguard and its accessories are on display in the church porch.

Buried under the church's aisles are the Lords Blantyre and the Stuarts of Eaglescairnie. Robert Burns mother is also buried here.

A notable possession of Bolton Church is the Bolton Hearse, a horse-drawn vehicle believed to be the earliest surviving piece of Scottish coachwork still in existence. The hearse is kept in the Museum of Antiquities in Edinburgh.

Robert Burns mothers grave can be seen, surrounded by metal railings in the middle of this photo.

The square building with domed roof is the "Stuart Mausoleum"

This stone is placed by his wife and 2 daughters.


He is the son of William Baird of Gartsherrie, and his wife Janet Johnston and was born at Rosemount, Ayrshire, 31st May, 1854. He was educated at Eton and Christ Church and in 1877 he joined the 6th Dragoon Guards, and six months later transferred to the 16th Lancers; and though he left the army in 1882, he still took an interest in military matters as commandant of the Ayrshire Imperial Yeomanry.

In 1885 he made his first appeal to a constituency by contesting the Central Division of Glasgow against Mr. Gilbert Beith, and though he was unsuccessful, the split created in the Liberal party by Mr. Gladstone's Home Rule Bill gave him another opportunity in the following year, when he was returned by a majority of 1356. Afterwards, without other interruption than an occasional contest, he continued to hold the seat until the General Election of 1906. Among the causes which he has championed have been those of Private Bill legislation for Scotland and improvement in the conditions of workmen. He takes a strong interest also in the public and charitable movements in Glasgow. He is a J.P. and D.L. for the counties of Glasgow and Ayr.
