At it are a branch of the Union Bank, a public school, and Cruden Free church (1844), which last was the nucleus of the village, and after which it at first was called the Free Kirkton of Cruden.Ord. Sur., sh. 87, 1876.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Hatton has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Aberdeenshire.
