Carfrae, Patrick, D.D.
a Scotch clergyman of Carniehaugh, was licensed to preach in 1765, presented to the living at Morham in 1766, and transferred to Dunbar in 1795. He resigned in 1820, retired to Bowerhouses, and died there, March 4, 1822, aged eighty Rears. He was known as one of the most eloquent and accomplished preachers of his day, and in his later years, because he took to reading his sermons, he was designated "Paper Pate." His publications were, A Letter to Scotia's Bard, which elicited a reply (Burns, Works, vol. 2): — Account of Morham. See Fasti Eccles. Scoticanae 1, 341, 369-70.
