Rev. David 
King
, "On 15th October, 1833, Dr. King was settled as the minister and pastor of Greyfriars church, having been ordained four years before in Dalkeith, from whence his name and fame went over the land.... A new cause having been opened by the synod in London, Dr. King, whose work in Kilcreggan was limited to the summer months, accepted an invitation to go to the metropolis. In October, 1860, he and his family removed there, where he was most assiduous in his work. While in London Dr. King accepted a call to a young cause begun in Morningside, Edinburgh. For some time everything went on most favourably, but the labours attached to this new enterprise overtaxed the powers of both mind and body, and his health broke down. His people suggested a temporary release from ministerial labours; but Dr. King, however grateful for this kindness, felt it was his duty to resign his charge, which he did in February, 1873. In the midst of this time of trial he had most sympathetic and cheering letters from old and new friends. Shortly after this his well-wishers in Glasgow presented him with a gift of three thousand guineas as an expression of their esteem for him, and as a recognition of his distinguished services to the church and the world during a ministry of upwards of forty years. He died in London on 20th December, 1883, nearly ten years after he had resigned his Morningside charge."
