PREFATORY NOTE 

The Editorial Committee have pleasure in issuing the Fourth Volume 
of the Fasti. More than half of their work has now been completed. 
But for unforeseen circumstances, progress would have been speedier. 
As it is, the unavoidable delay has borne good fruit otherwise, in 
enabling the Committee to cover a wider field of enquiry, and to 
expiscate a considerable number of points of biographical difficulty 
and obscurity. 

In the first of the Synods contained in Volume Four — that of 
Argyll — the difficulties have been unusually great. Few of the 
Separate Registers have been kept with regularity, the blanks in 
some of the Records extending over a long period of years. In 
order to supply information not found in these sources, access has 
been obtained to the Registers and Documents within H.M. General 
Register House, and to a variety of papers in the possession of 
private individuals. Many published volumes of Local and Family 
History have also yielded their quota, and the literature of the 
tombstones has again served its own useful purpose. Pains have 
been taken to verify the information given, but, as was said in 
a former Note, the Volumes — dealing with so vast a mass of names 
and dates — do not claim to be immaculate. The present Volume, 
it is hoped, is as free from errors as is possible. 

The Committee desire to express their thanks to the Clerks 
of the various Presbyteries, and to the Revs. James King Hewison, 
D.D., Rothesay; Alexander Matthew Wyllie, Auchtergaven ; William 
Alexander Macfarlane, Dull; Peter Robert Landreth, Perth; and 
William Wilson, Trossachs; and to Captain Herbert Campbell, for much 
assistance in the preparation of the work. 

The Volume has been brought down to the eve of publication. 

Uth July 1922.

SYNOD OF ARGYLL 

The Synod of Argyll was erected by the General Assembly on 18th Dec 
1638. To it were then assigned the five Presbyteries of Dunoon, Kinloch, 
Inveraray, Kilmore, and Skye. Kinloch is now styled Campbeltown, and 
Kilmore we call Lorn. Skye was transferred to the Synod of Glenelg in 
1724. The Synod Kegister of Argyll begins at 24th April 1639. There 
is a blank in the Eecord from May 1661 to 29th Sept. 1687. 



PRESBYTERY OF INVERARAY 

[This Court first appears on Record as the Presbytery of Argyll. It is so styled in 
1604. In 1638, when the Synod of Argyll was set up, this Court is named the Presbytery 
of Inveraray. The Presbytery Register begins at 13th Oct. 1691. There are gaps in the 
Record from 14th April 1702 to 17th May 1715, from 27th Sept. 1725 to 7th Aug. 1731, 
and from 17th May 1763 to 27th April 1779. The Separate Register is very incomplete.]

GLASSARY. 

[The church of Glassary was dedicated to 
St Michael. Beside it a Michaelmas fair 
used to be held. There were three chapels 
in the parish. One of them was on the 
west side at Kilbride. It bore the name 
of St Bride. Another stood at Killevin, 
near Crarae, on Lochfyne. It was dedi- 
cated to St Stebhan, Abbot of Iona. The 
ruins of St Columba's Church can still be 
seen at Cill an Iubhair (the chapel of the 
Yew-tree) on Loch Awe. At Cill an Iubhair, 
which was once a village of some size, there 
was held a yearly tryst called Am Margadh 
Dubh (the Black Fair).]

to Campbeltown, but continued in this 
charge. He was app. in 1650 to assist in 
the translation into Gaelic of the "Shorter 
Catechism" and the "Brief Sum of Christian 
Doctrine " ; and in 1659, when the Psalms 
were being issued in Gaelic verse, he was 
app. to versify those from L. to LX. He 
was also assigned the Second Book of 
Chronicles in Nov. 1660 when the Old Tes- 
tament was being turned into Gaelic. He 
succeeded his cousin Donald in the lands 
of Poltalloch 14th July 1642 ; is mentioned

have completed his studies. In a contest 
with the notorious Colchiotach, the parties 
are said to have been equally matched, and 
Zachary to have been highly complimented 
by his adversary for courage and skill as a 
swordsman. Zachary was served heir to 
his grand-uncle, 17th Jan. 1654, and to his

the first manses in the county, and well 
known for its "nineteen windows." He 
died "greatly lamented" 28th March 1722, 
after years of intense physical suffering. 
In 1719 he wrote: "I walked only with 
the help of two stilts, and since 14th Oct. 
1716 I was so universally taken with gout 
in hands and feet that I never stood on 
my own legs since that day, nor moved a 
step, but as I was carried each Sabbath 
to preach, which I was forced to do sitting 
on a chair on the floor of the church, not 
being able to ascend the pulpit, and yet 
I was helped to preach each Sabbath : 
my hand also was unable to write. I 
was obliged to sit from morning to even- 
ing on my bedside, being unable to stir 
or walk one step." He marr. June 1692,

GLENARAY AND INVERARAY. 

[These two parishes were united on 27th 
March 1745. About that time the church of 
Glenaray was rebuilt at Inveraray. Each 
parish has still its own minister and its own 
church, both churches being at Inveraray. 

Glenaray. — The old church of Glenaray 
was at Kilmalew. It was dedicated to 
St Malew (Maldhuibh). Within the bounds 
there were six chapels, St Fintan's at 
Kilmun, St Blaan's at Kilblaan, St Bride's 
at Kilbride, St John's at Killiain, and the 
chapels of Glen Shira and Achantiobaiot. 
On Loch Gair there is now a mission chapel. 

Inveraray. — The parish of Inveraray was 
disjoined from Glenaray on 26th Dec. 
1651, but was again united to it in 1745. 
At Inveraray there was of old a chapel of 
St Beaandan.]

charging his pastoral duties with prudence, 
charity, and wisdom." He preached under 
a rock long known as the " parson's pulpit," 
until a church was built. He was believed 
to have had the gift of prophecy and to 
have foretold his death by drowning. This 
happened at Stirling, where, at an alarm 
of fire, he fell from an outside stair "head

SOUTH KNAPDALE. 

[This parish was disjoined from North 
Knapdale on 20th Feb. 1734. At Cill mo 
Charmaig, in Eilean M6r, an island on the 
west coast of the parish, stand the remark- 
able ruins of two ancient churches, both 
dedicated to St Cormac. The older building, 
evidently of very early date, is of dry stone 
without mortar, nearly square, and about 
eleven feet long. Behind it, enclosed by it 
and entering from it, is a cave in the rock. 
This edifice appears to have been the early 
parish church of all Knapdale. The later 
church near it was in use for parochial 
worship until 1734. It has a chancel, and 
is nearly forty feet long. Besides these 
two churches of St Cormac, there are two 
other fine ruined chapels in South Knapdale, 
St Mary's at Kilmorie, and St Columba's 
at Keils. At Keils there are a fine stand- 
ing stone cross and also St Columba's 
Cave. A chapel of St Constantine, which 
stood at Kilchuslan on Loch Gilp, no longer 
exists. South Knapdale has two parish 
churches, the one at Achahoish, where the 
manse is, and the other at Inverneil.]

KILMUN (Q.S.). 

[From a very early time there was on 
Loch Seant (the Holy Loch) a church of 
St Fintan Munna. In due time it became 
the parish church of Kilmun. In 1442 
Sir Duncan Campbell of Loch Awe, after- 
wards first Lord Campbell, granted it a 
collegiate foundation with the ancient 
dedication to St Fintan. The parishes of 
Dunoon and Kilmun were often held by 
the same incumbent even as late as the 
seventeenth century. From 1629 onwards 
efforts were made to have the two parishes 
sufficiently endowed as separate charges, 
but without success. Towards the end of 
the seventeenth century, however, a union 
was carried through. It lasted till the 16th 
of March 1894, when Kilmun was disjoined 
quoad sacra from Dunoon. Kilmun had a 
yearly fair of St Fintan, and another fair 
on Roodmas Day.] 

DUNCAN CAMPBELL, had a grant of 
the Provostry from James VI. in

to Archibald Campbell of Kilmun.— [Orig.

KINGARTH. 

[The church of Kingarth belonged to the 
Abbey of Paisley. For a time this parish 
was in the Presbytery of Irvine, but in 
August 1639 it was transferred to that of 
Dunoon. The first church here was most 
likely built by St Catan towards the end of 
the sixth century. His name survives in 
Kilchatan and Suidhe Chatain (Catan's 
Seat), both in this parish. St Blaan, a 
nephew of St Catan, founded the Celtic 
Abbey of Cill Bhlaain, whose extensive 
ruins are to be seen between Suidh Chatain 
and Suidhe Bhlaain (Blaan's Seat). In the 
old churchyard of Kingarth, which is still

church. Beside it is Tobar Bhlaain (Blaan's

Margadh na h-Eaglais (the Tryst of the 
Church), St Blaan's Fair used to be held. 
In 1680 a new parish church was built on a 
more central site. In 1826 this latter was 
replaced by another new church.]

ROTHESAY. 

[The rectory of Rothesay belonged to the 
Abbey of Kilwinning. In early times its 
church was dedicated to St Brioch. A 
later church, built probably as early as 
the thirteenth century, bore the name of St 
Mary. Under episcopal rule in the seven- 
teenth century, this church of St Mary at 
Rothesay was the cathedral of the diocese 
of the Isles. In 1692 Rothesay Church was 
rebuilt mainly on its old site. The chancel 
was retained, but the rest of the building 
was taken down and rebuilt. In 1795 the 
church was again rebuilt. This time the 
plan of the edifice was so altered that the 
old chancel was left standing close to the 
new church. There its ruins still remain. 
This chapel is thirty-three feet long and 
twenty-two feet broad externally, and con- 
tains several finely sculptured effigies of 
early date. The parish church was reno- 
vated in 1906. 

Besides the parish church, Rothesay had 
a chapel of St Mary. On St Bride's Hill 
also, within the burgh, there was a chapel 
of St Bride. In Rothesay Castle there 
was a chapel of St Michael, whose ruins 



survive. There were also in pre-Reforma- 
tion times chapels dedicated to Saints 
Ciaran, Finan, Colman, Columba, Con- 
stantine, Machan, and Mary, and the re- 
mains of several of these are visible with 
holy wells close by their sites. 

Until recent times Rothesay continued 
to hold a fair in honour of its patron, 
St Brioch. 

There is in the town a mission chapel for 
Gaelic services. It was built in 1836.]

CAMPBELTOWN or KIL- 
CHIARAN, KILCHUSLAN, 
KILMICHAEL, AND KIL- 
CHIEVAN. 

[The three parishes of Kilchiaran, Kil- 
chuslan, and Kilmichael in Kintyre were 
united in 1617. To this union Kilchievan 
was added in 1671. 

Kilchiaran. — In the. sixth century, St 
Kiaran came from Ireland as a Christian 
missionary to the people of Kintyre. A 
cavern on the sea-shore of this parish, 
called Uamh Chiarain (Kiaran's Cave), 
is pointed out as having served him for 
a temporary dwelling. In after times it 



48 



CAMPBELTOWN 



[PRESB. OF 



was in use as a hermitage. The adjoining 
bay was termed Loch Chiarain, and several 
other places within the bounds, including a 
holy well, bear the saint's name. A church, 
standing of old on the side of the loch, 
was dedicated to St Kiaran. Of it but 
scanty traces are now left in the ancient 
churchyard. Kilchiaran was a prebend 
of Lismore, and belonged to the Abbey 
of Paisley. In 1662, a new church for the 
parish was built at Dalruadhan, further 
up the loch. From its site, this place 
came to be styled Ceann Loch Chiarain 
(the End of Loch Chiarain), and often 
merely Kinloch. At times Ave find both 
church and parish called Loch Head. The 
name Dalruadhan (Ruadhan's Field) seems 
to imply a commemoration of St Ruadhan 
of Lorrha in Ormonde, an early friend 
and comrade of St Kiaran. The township 
appears to have been first named Campbel- 
town in 1672, but the parish continued to 
be styled Kilchiaran until 1700. In that 
year King William granted a charter, 
making the place a royal burgh, and 
calling it Campbeltown. A building in 
the town, which was once the parish 
church, and is now used for mission 
services, is styled Kinloch Chapel. Fairs 
used to be held in Campbeltown, at 
Lammas and Michaelmas. 

During the troubled times of the seven- 
teenth century, many refugees from the 
western Lowlands found shelter in this 
part of Kintyre, under the protection of 
the Marquess of Argyll. Not knowing 
Gaelic, they could not join in the worship 
of the parish churches. Therefore, in 
1638, a chapel was built for them at 
Kilchiaran, and a Lowland congregation 
was formed there. In 1655 the Presb. 
made this Lowland chapel a separate 
Charge. On 23rd Nov. 1757, the Lowland 
Charge was merged in the parish of 
Campbeltown. Hence it comes that the 
burgh has two parish churches under one 
kirk-session. The Gaelic services are con- 
ducted by the minister of the First Charge 
in the large church. The smaller church 
belongs to the Lowland Charge, and in it 
only English services are held. Both build- 
ings are kept up by the heritors. 



Kilchuslan. — The ancient church of Kil- 
chuslan, a building about sixty feet long 
with a chancel, now stands ruined in its old 
churchyard near the shore. It was dedicated 
to St Constantine the Martyr. 

Kilmichael in Kintyre.— The church of 
Kilmichael was a prebend of Lismore. It 
was dedicated to St Michael. 

Kilchievan.— The ruins of the ancient 
church of Kilchievan, a building over fifty 
feet in length, are still standing. It was 
dedicated to St Caomhghan (Kevin) of 
Glendalough. In 1617 the parish of Kil- 
chievan was united to Kilcholumkill and 
Kilblaan. In 1671 that union was dis- 
solved, and Kilchievan was then joined to 
Kilchiaran, Kilchuslan, and Kilmichael.]

GIGHA AND CARA. 

[The ancient church of Gigha was dedi- 
cated to St Catan. It now stands in the 
old churchyard, roofless and weatherworn, 
overlooking from its high ground the Bay 
of Ardminish on the east side of the island. 
The parish of Gigha was united to Jura 
in the sixteenth century. In 1641 it was 
severed from Jura and joined to Saddell. 
In 1659 it was disjoined from Saddell and 
united to Killean. On 22nd Jan. 1726 the 
Commissioners of Teinds severed Gigha 
from Killean, making it, as of old, a separate 
parish. The island of Cara is in this parish. 
On it there is an old ruined chapel of rude 
masonry, some thirty feet long, with its 
gables nearly whole.]

KILLEAN, KILCHENZIE, AND

[The parishes of Kilchenzie and Kilmal- 
rubh were united before 1560. To this 
union Killean was added in 1636. There 
are still parish churches in both Killean 
and Kilchenzie. 

Killean. — The ancient ruined church of 
Killean is one of the finest examples of an 
early Highland church with a chancel. It 
was dedicated to St John the Evangelist, 
and belonged to the Abbey of Paisley. 
There were chapels in the parish at Kilmorie 
and Tayanloan. 

Kilchenzie. — The church of Kilchenzie 
was dedicated to St Kenneth. It belonged 
to the Abbey of Iona. A good deal of 
tradition has come down regarding a small 
early Celtic monastery at Glenbarr in this 
parish. There are not now any remains of 
buildings to mark its site. Within the 
bounds there is a mission chapel at 
Beallachantuie. 

Kilmalrubh. — The church of this parish 
was dedicated to St Malrubh.]

SADDELL. 

[On 11th March 1753 the Court of Teinds 
disjoined from the parish of Killean the 
district of Saddell, and from the adjoining 
parish of Kilcalmonell that of Skipness. 
The Court then erected the two districts 
thus disjoined into the new parish of Saddell. 
Each of these districts had its own church, 
and the parish was therefore commonly 
styled Saddell and Skipness. In 1870 Skip- 
ness was taken from Saddell, and made 
a separate parish. The parish of Saddell 
contains the ruins of St Mary's Cistercian 
Abbey of Saddell, founded about 1150 by 
Ranald of the Isles, second son of the great 
Somerled. There was of old, within the 
bounds, a well of St Andrew, and at Kil- 
michael in Carradale there stood a chapel 
of St Michael. There are now mission 
chapels at Carradale and Grogport.]

SOUTHEND, or KILCHOLUM- 
KILL AND KILBLAAN. 

[In 1617 a Commission of Parliament 
united the three parishes of Kilcholumkill, 
Kilblaan, and Kilchievan, which together 
make up the south end of Kintyre. In 
1671 Kilchievan was severed from this 
union, and was joined to Kilchiaran, Kil- 
chuslan, and Kilmichael. Since then the 



two united parishes of Kilcholumkill and 
Kilblaan have been commonly known as 
Southend. 

Kilcholumkill. — The ancient church of 
Kilcholumkill, of which the ruins still 
stand, was dedicated to St Columba. It 
belonged to the priory of Whitern. At 
Glenadal within the bounds there was a 
chapel of St Katherine, with St Katherine's 
Well near it. 

Kilblaan. — The church of Kilblaan 
belonged to the priory of Whitern. It was 
dedicated to St Blaan.]

Lunga, the Garvelach Isles, Colonsay, 
Oronsay, Gigha, and Cara. To get over

architecture of our early Christian times. 
Near them is shown Tobar Cholumcille

St Eithne's Grave, held in honour as the 
burial-place of St Columba's mother. At 
Kilmorie, in Scarba, there was a chapel 
of St Mary. In Lunga were St Columba's 
Chapel and Holy Well. In Jura itself there 
were chapels of St Catan and St Mary.]

KILCHOMAN. 

[The church of this parish was dedicated 
to St Comman of Tyrconnel. In 1618 
Kilchoman was united to Kilarrow, but 
their union was dissolved in 1769. In the 
old ruined church at Kilchoman lie fine 
monuments and other ancient carved work. 
At the west end, outside the church, there 
is a stately standing cross, carved on both 
sides and bearing an inscription. Within 
the church are fragments of other monu- 
mental crosses. At the north end of the 
parish are Eilean Naomh (the Holy Isle) 
and Aird Naomh (the Holy Headland). 
On Eilean Naomh there was from a very 
early time a small monastery. A ruined 
chapel still survives. Near that, on the 
mainland of Islay, is the ruined chapel of 
Cill Naomh. At its west end there stands

KILDALTON. 

[The church of Kildalton was dedicated 
to St John the Evangelist, called in the 
early Gaelic Church "Ian Daltan" (John 
the Foster-brother). The parishes of Kil- 
dalton and Kilnachtan or Oa were united 
before the sixteenth century. On 30th 
May 1849 their union was dissolved by the 
erection of the Oa again as a parish quoad 
sacra. About the same time the church of 
this parish was removed from Kildalton 
to Lagamhuilin. In the churchyard at Kil- 
dalton the very interesting ancient church, 
a building about sixty feet long, now stands 
roofless. Before its west end, there stands 
among the tombstones a stone cross about 
nine feet high very richly carved. A little 
way off, outside the churchyard, is another 
standing cross about twelve feet high. 
Within the church are fine monumental 
figures and other carved stone-work. 

At Kilchuban, in the north of this parish, 
is the ruined chapel of St Caomhan of 
Glendalough. It is about thirty-five feet 
long, rudely built of dry stone without 
mortar. Near it is Tobar Chubain (St 
Caomhan's Well). At Kilcholumkill there 
is a Well of St Columba. There was once 
a chapel of the saint there, but his Well 
alone remains now. At Kilbride there is 
still a ruined chapel of St Bride. There 
used to be a standing cross beside it, but 
that was in danger of falling, and was 
therefore removed to another site some 



years ago. At Kill Lasrach is St Lasrach's 
ruined chapel, with St Lasrach's Well hard 
by. On the island of Texa there is an 
interesting ruin of a chapel about thirty 
feet long. A good many finely sculptured 
stones have been found there. 
At Port-Ellen there is a mission chapel.]

KILMENY (Q.S.). 

[The parish of Kilmeny was united to 
Kilarrow before 1550. Early in the nine- 
teenth century a parliamentary church was 
built to take the place of the ancient ruined 
church of Kilmeny. On 13th May 1849 
Kilmeny was disjoined quoad sacra from 
Kilarrow. In the old ruined church are 
still to be seen a number of carved stones, 
some of them monumental. There are also 
fine mural remains in the ruined chapel 
of St Columba at Kilcholumkill. Not far 
from that, at Gill Sleibhin, are the remains 
of a chapel dedicated to St Sleavan, Abbot 
of Iona. At Gill Ghilleagan, too, there was 
a chapel, and at Gill Bhreanan there was 
one dedicated to St Breandan. On Loch 
Finlagan, an inland sheet of water, are the 
interesting ruins of a chapel of St Finlagan 
of Tallaght, with fine stone monuments. 

In this parish there are mission chapels 
at Bunnahavain and Caol Ila.]

THE OA, of old KILNACHTAN 
(Q.S.). 

[Islay was long a stronghold of the Norse 
dominion in the West, and many places 
there still bear Norse names. But the 
churches and chapels were almost all called 
by Gaelic names. The modern name of 
this parish is a notable exception. The 
rocky, wind-swept, half-insular headland 
which forms nearly the whole parish, is 
always styled by Islay people in Gaelic 
An O, or in English the Oa. In this 
name we have a survival of the old Norse 
term 0, meaning an island. The ancient 
ecclesiastical name of the parish is Kil- 
nachtan, so called from its patron, St 
Neachtan, the Pictish king. 

Somewhere about 1830, a parliamentary 
church was built in the southern part of 
the Oa, to take the place of Kilnachtan 
Church, which had become ruinous. On 
30th May 1849 the parish of the Oa was 
disjoined quoad sacra from Kildalton. 
At the head of Kilnachtan Bay, half-buried 
by the drifted sand of the shore, the old 
church now stands roofless. It is some 
forty feet long, and evidently of early 
date. There are fine old monumental 
figures within it and ancient stone carvings. 
At Cill Chatain in this parish there is a 
chapel of St Catan, and at Cill Chomhain 
is one dedicated to St Coan. Both are 



now much ruined. There was formerly 
another chapel at Tocmal.]

PRESBYTERY OF LORN, called of old KILMORE 

[The General Assembly erected the Presbytery of Kilmore on 8th Dec. 1638. In 
1689 the Presbyteries of Inveraray and Kilmore were united. In May 1704, however, they 
were severed again. The Presbytery Register begins at 14th May 1651. There are gaps 
in the record from 11th April 1661 to 31st Oct. 1666, from 30th Nov. 1681 to 5th July 
1704, from 3rd Aug. to 14th Nov. 1711, from 8th Dec. 1714 to 7th July 1729, and from 
12th Feb. 1800 to 24th Nov. 1829. The gap between 1681 and 1704 is due, at least in the 
main, to this Court being at that time merged in the Presbytery of Inveraray. From 6th 
May 1806 to 6th Aug. 1829 the minutes are written in scroll merely, and are defective. 
The ordinary meetings of Presbytery are now held at Oban. The Separate Register is 
incomplete.] 



APPIN (Q.S.). 

[The parish of Appin was first disjoined 
from Lismore in or about the year 1650. 
Like a good many other parochial erections 
made by the Commissioners of Teinds, this 
one fell under the sweeping revocation of 
the Act of Parliament of 9th Feb. 1661, 
known as the Act Rescissory. The effect 
was to join Appin again to Lismore. On 
15th May 1868 the parish of Appin was 
disjoined a second time, and was of new 
erected as a parish quoad sacra. The 
present church was built in 1889. There 
was of old a chapel of St Patrick within 
the bounds, on Loch Creran. There is now 
a mission chapel in Glencreran.]

ARDCHATTAN, on BAILE 
MHAODAIN. 

[The ancient church of this parish was 
dedicated to St Modan. Hence comes its 
name of Baile Mhaodain (St Modan 's town- 
ship). In 1231 Duncan MacDougall of 
Lorn founded, near the parish church of 
St Modan, a priory of the order of Val 
de Choux, dedicated to St Catan. This 
monastery gave to the parish its modern 
name of Ardchattan (St Catan's Height). 
Near the church was St Modan's Well, and 
hard by St Modan's Fair was held. In 
1618 the parishes of Ardchattan and 
Muckairn were united. They were severed 
again in 1649. The Act Rescissory of 1661 
repealed their disjunction, and Muckairn 
was thus annexed a second time to Ard- 
chattan. It was, however, disjoined again 
quoad sacra on 9th December 1846. At 
Kilcholumkill in this parish, on the north 
shore of Loch Etive, there was a chapel of 
St Columba. At Benderloch there is now 
a mission chapel of St Modan.]

from Lismore, and erected the new parish 
of Duror. In 1661, by passing the Act 
Rescissory, Parliament annulled this and 
other proceedings of the Commissioners. 
Thus the erection of the new parish was 
set aside, and Duror was united again to 
Lismore, as were at the same time Eilean 
Munda and Appin. This state of things 
lasted for nearly 200 years. Early in the 
nineteenth century a parliamentary chapel 
was built here. On 9th Dec. 1846, the 
parish of Duror was again disjoined quoad 
sacra from Lismore.]

GLENCOE, or EILEAN 
MUNDA (Q.S.). 

[The island of Eilean Munda lies in Loch 
Leven near the place where the River Coe 
falls into the loch. On the island are the 
ruins of the ancient church of this parish. 
It was dedicated to St Fintan Munu, 
after whom the place is named. Early 
in the sixteenth century the parishes of 
Lismore and Eilean Munda were already 
united. In or about 1650 the Commis- 
sioners of Teinds disjoined Eilean Munda 
from Lismore, making it again a separate 
parish. About that time, too, the church 
on the island was restored and enlarged. 
It is now a ruin, about fifty feet long. By 
the Act Rescissory, passed in 1661, Parlia- 
ment rendered void the erection of Eilean 
Munda, along with those of the neighbour- 
ing parishes of Duror and Appin. Thus 
all three were again attached to Lismore.

Sometime early in the nineteenth century 
a new church for the district was built on 
the mainland near the mouth of Glencoe. 
To it also was given the name of St Fintan 
Munu. Thenceforth services were again 
held regularly, and, on 14th July 1890, the 
parish of Glencoe or Eilean Munda was 
once more disjoined quoad sacra from 
Lismore. There is now a mission chapel 
within the bounds at Kinlochleven.]

GLENORCHY AND INISHAIL 



[PRESB. OF 



GLENORCHY AND INISHAIL. 

[These two parishes were united in 1618, 
but were severed again in 1650. This new 
erection of Inishail, however, fell under the 
general revocation of Church procedure 
contained in the Act Rescissory passed by 
Parliament in 1661. Thus the two parishes 
were joined again. Until 1668 they formed 
part of the Presb. of Inveraray, but in that 
year the united parishes were transferred 
to the Presb. of Cowal, now called Dunoon. 
On 12th May 1729 the united parishes 
of Glenorchy and Inishail were annexed to 
the Presb. of Lorn. Each of the parishes 
continues to have its own church. 

Glenorchy or Clachan an Diseairt. — St 
Conan's Mission to the Picts had its seat 
at Dalmally in Glenorchy. When the saint 
died, they buried him on the island of Inis 
Chonain in the River Orchy. There the 
remains of the ancient church of St Conan 
are still to be seen. To view his relics 
shown in it, and to visit St Conan's Well 
at Dalmally, pilgrims were wont to come 
from far and near. The Diseairt, or Her- 
mitage, to which St Conan retired, gave the 
place the name of Clachan an Diseairt (the 
Village of the Hermitage). The parish 
church has been rebuilt at Dalmally on the 
mainland. Glenorchy had two fairs, St 
Conan's and St Andrew's. There is now a 
mission chapel of St Conan on Loch Awe. 

Inishail. — The church of Inishail was 
dedicated to St Findoch. This seems 
to be St Findeach of Ath Duiru in 
Ossory, but there was also a female saint 
called Findocha. The church belonged to 
the Abbey of Inchaffrey. The ancient 
building, now ruined, stands on an island 
in Loch Awe. The island contained also 
a Cistercian Nunnery of St Findoch, but of 
it there are now but scanty remains. The 
church of Inishail has been rebuilt upon 
the mainland.]

KILCHRENAN AND DALAVICH. 

[The passing of the Act Rescissory in 1661 
caused the union of these two parishes. 
Each of them still retains its own church. 
Until 1729 the united parishes were in the 
Presb. of Inveraray, but, on the 12th of 
May in that year, they were transferred to 
the Presb. of Lorn. 

Kilchrenan or Kildachanan. — The church 
of Kilchrenan belonged to the Abbey of 
Paisley. Of old it was dedicated to the 
Irish Saint Chreathanan. This, however, 
was superseded by a late dedication to 
St Peter the Deacon, a martyr of Antioch. 
When Kilchrenan had come under the rule 
of the Abbot of Paisley, it acquired the 
additional name of Kildachanan (the 
Church of the Canons). This, indeed, was 



not an accurate style, for the monks of 
Paisley were not Canons Regular but 
Cluniacs. In the chapter of the Diocese of 
Argyll, Kilchrenan formed the prebend of 
the Dean. There was a chapel within the 
bounds at Annat. 

Dalavich. — The parish of Dalavich gets 
its name (Bail an Amhaich = the Field of 
the Neck) from the site of its old church 
upon the narrow neck of land between 
Loch Awe and Loch Avich. So far as can 
be made out, it was in 1649 or 1650 that 
Dalavich was disjoined from Kilchrenan. 
The Act Rescissory annulled its erection in 
1661, and then these two parishes were 
united again.]

during the whole period of his life he was 
never a day confined by sickness. A Manu- 
script Diary of his father gives some curious 
particulars as to M.'s settlement here. The 
living is spoken of as one of the " best in 
the county," though the stipend was barely 
above £70. "This was competed for by 
several ministers of figure, standing, and 
with strong connections in that county, but 
the application in favour of my poor lad 
prevailed, and much of his success under 
God was owing to the regard for his sister 
Flora." He was a well-informed writer on 
Scottish Music and a player on various 
instruments. He marr. 28th Dec. 1757,

LISMORE, or KILMALUAG. 

[This parish is made up of the island 
of Lismore and the smaller islands adjoin- 
ing it. When the Act Rescissory was passed 
in 1661 it united the parishes of Appin, 
Duror, and Glencoe or Eilean Munda, to 
Lismore, from which they had at first been 
taken. At various times they have all now 
been severed again. St Luag, often called 
Mo Luag, had the seat of his mission at 
Lismore. He died in the year 592. To 
him the ancient church of this parish 
at Kilmaluag was dedicated. In Lismore 
stood also the cathedral of the diocese of 
Argyll, which still exists, though ruined in 
part. It too was dedicated to St Luag. 
The see of Argyll was founded in 1200 at 
the instance of John Scott, Bishop of 
Dunkeld, known as St John of Dunkeld. 
The good bishop, finding himself unequal to 
the oversight of his huge, unwieldy diocese, 
obtained from the Pope the separation of 
its more distant, western parts. The build- 
ing of the cathedral at Lismore does not 
appear to have been begun until 1236. It 
was 137 feet in length. Like other churches 
of large size, it fell much into decay during 
the troubled times of the seventeenth 
century. In 1749 its choir was restored to 
form the church of the parish instead of 
the small ancient building at Kilmaluag. 
It is still in parochial use, and is fifty feet 



long without aisles. The other parts of 
the cathedral are now much ruined. The 
Dean of Argyll was in old times rector of 
Lismore. The Bishop of Argyll resided on 
the island, at the Castle of Achanduin, of 
which there are still considerable remains. 
There were three chapels on Lismore, 
St Kiaran's at Cill Chiarain, St John's at 
Cill Iain, and St Andrews at Cill Anriais. 
Another place of devout resort still keeps 
the name of Ach net Croise (the Field of 
the Cross). On the adjacent island of 
Bernera stand the remains of another 
chapel.]

MUCKAIRN, oit CILLEASBUIG 
EARAILD (Q.S.). 

[A church was first built at Muckairn 
early in the thirteenth century, by 
Harald, first Bishop of Argyll. Hence it 
was called Cilleasbuig's Earaild (Bishop 
Harald's Church). It became a mensal 
church of the Bishop of Argyll. In 1618 
the parishes of Ardchattan and Muckairn 
were united. They were severed again in 
1649, but in 1661 the Act Rescissory re- 
pealed their disjunction, and Muckairn 
was again joined to Ardchattan. In 1829 
a parliamentary church was built for this 
district, and on 9th Dec. 1846 the parish 
of Muckairn was again disjoined quoad 
sacra from Ardchattan. There were of 
old two chapels within the bounds, St 
Ronan's at Kilmaronaig and St Mary's 
at Kilvorie.]

PKESBYTEEY OF MULL 

[Donald Munro, Dean of Lismore, writing in 1549, tells us that there were then seven 
parishes in Mull. Among the seven he counts the two island parishes of Iona and Ulva, 
along with the five parochial charges of Kilninian, Kilmore, Torosay, Kilfinichen, and 
Kilvicheoan on the mainland of Mull. In 1626, however, Thomas Knox, Bishop of the 
Isles, reported that the whole of Mull, with the lesser islands about it, was at that time 
administered as if one parish under the care of three ministers. The three were Ewan 
MacLean, parson of Killean or Torosay, John Campbell, and Ninian MacMiilan. Until 
1726 all these parishes formed part of the Presbytery of Lorn. On the 12th of May in 
that year the General Assembly erected the Presbytery of Mull, and fixed its seat at Aros. 
The Presbytery Eegister begins 9th Aug. 1729. There is a gap in the record from 
Sept. 1735 to 19th April 1737. This is due to an outbreak of fire at Strontian, where the 
Presbytery Clerk resided. This part of the Eegister was burned along with the house. 
Another gap reaches from 28th April 1741 to 7th March 1744. The ordinary meetings of 
Presbytery are now held at Salen during the winter months, and at Tobermory 
in summer.]

ARDNAMURCHAN AND 
EILEAN FINAIN. 

[These two parishes were united in or 
about 1614. At the same time Arisaig was 
joined with them, but it was severed again 
in 1919. There are still two churches, the 
one at Kilchoan and the other at Kilmorie. 

Ardnamurchan. — The church of Ardna- 
murchan was dedicated to St Coan. There 
was a chapel of St Mary at Kilmorie. At 
Tobar Fhinain there was a Well of St 
Finain, and at Tobar Cholmcill there was 
one dedicated to St Columba. There is 
now a mission chapel at Achosnich. 

Eilean Finain. — This parish is named 
from the island of St Finan in Loch Shiel. 
Upon it the ancient parish church still 
stands in ruin. It is about seventy-six feet 
long, and was dedicated to St Finan.] 



DONALD OMEY, was min. at 12th Feb. 
1624. Andrew Boyd, Bishop of 
Argyll, " having special care to have 
kirks plantit with learned and godlie men 



1624 



of good lyffe and conversation, for this effect 
plantit and placed the said Mr Donald, who 
is ane learned, modest, and good teacher." 
The Bishop hoped that the adjacent 
chief would have respected him, but on 
a Sunday while O. was preaching, "thair 
cam a young man into the kirk in the 
middle of the preatching, armed with a 
sword, a targe, and a hagbuit, and verie 
rudlie, with an awful and fierce counten- 
ance, addreist himself to the minister, 
handing a letter from the chieftain of 
Clanranald intimating that the minister 
sould with all convenient diligence reteirr 
himself from those boundes, and have him 
hame, utherwayes it sould coast him his 
lyffe. " O. therefore "was constraynd for 
the sauftie of his lyffe instantlie to go 
away." — [Beg. Sec. Sig., xiii., 427 ; Craven's 
Records of Argyll and the Isles, 79.] 



DUNCAN M'CALMAN, was min. of 
Kilchoan and Eilean Finain when 

1623 

the teinds were valued 16th and 17th 
Aug. 1629. It is said that when he came 
to the parish his congregation consisted 
entirely of his own household and the 
beadle, and this too when at the end of 
the church there was congregated a crowd 
to "putt the stane." Suiting himself to 
the circumstances, he took the opportunity 
of joining in their favourite pastime, and 
being a strongly built powerful man, 
he soon matched the best of them. By 
this expedient he secured their interest, 
gained their affection, and in course of 
time rilled his church. He was dep. in 
1644 for complicity with the notorious 
Alasdair Macdonald, young Collciotach, 
and was excommunicated 1st May 1650, 
but this sentence was removed by the 
Presb. after 10th July 1672, and he was 
restored to his parish. He probably died 
shortly afterwards. — [Teinds Valuation

of old two chapels in Coll, St Bride's at

born 28th July 1752 (marr. Alexander 
Maclean of Mingary). Describing his visit 
to Coll in 1773, Dr Samuel Johnson wrote : 
" We called on Mr Hector Maclean, the 
minister of Coll, whom we found in a hut, 
that is, a house of only one floor, but with 
windows and chimney, and not inelegantly 
furnished. Mr M. has the reputation for 
great learning ; he is seventy-seven years 
old, but not infirm, with a look of venerable 
dignity excelling what I remember in any 
other man. His conversation was not un- 
suitable to his appearance. I lost some of 
his goodwill by treating a heretical writer 
with more regard than, in his opinion, a 
heretic could deserve. I honoured his 
orthodoxy, and did not much censure his 
asperity. A man who has settled his 
opinions does not love to have the tran- 
quillity of his conviction disturbed ; and 
at seventy-seven it is time to be in earnest. 
. . . He has no public edifice for the 
exercise of his ministry, and can officiate 
to no greater number than a room can 
contain, and the room of a hut is not 
very large. This is all the opportunity 
of worship that is now granted to the 
inhabitants of the islands, some of whom 
must travel thither perhaps ten miles. Two 
chapels were erected by their ancestors, of 
which I saw the skeletons, which now stand 
faithful witnesses of the triumph of the 
Preformation." — [Clan Gillean, 334 ; A 
Journey to the Western Isles.]

HEYLIPOL, or SOROBIE (Q.S.). 

[Tiree was divided of old between two 
parishes. Of these, Kirkapol included all 
the north-eastern part of the island, while 
the south-west formed the parish of Sorobie. 
On 31st July 1618 the three parishes of 
Kirkapol, Sorobie, and Coll were united. 
During the nineteenth century a chapel for 
the southern part of Tiree was built at 
Heylipol, a more accessible site than 
Sorobie. On 15th Feb. 1875 the parish of 
Heylipol, or Sorobie, was severed again from 
Kirkapol. There were within the bounds 
of Sorobie two chapels, St Kenneth's at 
Cill Choinnich, and St Luag's at Cill Mo 
Luaig. Ruins of both still exist. There 
are now mission chapels at Cornaig and 
Balevullin.]

ICHOLUMKILL, or IONA (Q.S.). 

[In the year 563 St Columba came to this 
island, then called I or Hi, and here he 
founded his monastery. In later times 
Icholumkill formed a parish, with its 
church dedicated to St Ronan. Of that 
building the traces are now but scanty. 
Early in the seventeenth century the three 
parishes of Kilfinichen, Kilvicheoan, and 
Icholumkill were united. In 1828 a parlia- 



mull] 



ICHOLUMKILL 



111 



mentary chapel was built in Iona. On 
11th June 1845 the parish of Iona or 
Icholumkill was again disjoined from Kil- 
finichen and Kilvicheoan. In the parish 
thus erected of new is included, along with 
the island of Icholumkill, the Eoss of Mull, 
a considerable part of the mainland of that 
large island. 

Besides the ancient parish church, still 
known as Teampull Ronain, there were in 
Iona various other church buildings, most 
of which are now ruined. Oldest of these 
is the very early Norman church of Team- 
pull Odhrain, a roofless structure about 40 
feet long. In its old-world churchyard, the 
Relig Odhrain, lie unnumbered generations 
of the great and the faithful. A space by 
itself contains the tombs of the kings, in 
which are buried forty-eight kings, Pictish 
and Scottish, who reigned in ancient Alban. 
Beside them are laid four Irish kings and 
eight of those Norse princes, all more or 
less vassals of the kings of Norway, who, 
ruling in our western shires, laid claim to 
the royal title. Here, too, were laid to rest 
the Fathers of the Scottish Church, and the 
martyred monks who, like St Blathmac, 
fell time after time beneath the axes of 
Scandinavian pirates. Near St Oran's 
stands the noble church of St Mary, given 
back to the Church of Scotland by the 
statesman George, Duke of Argyll, and now 
finely restored. It was originally the 
church of the Tironensian Abbey of 
Icholumkill, founded near the end of the 
twelfth century by Ranald, Lord of the 
Isles. About 1506 this church came into 
the hands of the bishops of the Isles, and 
became the cathedral of their diocese. 
Close to it are the ruins of the nunnery of 
St Mary, founded about 1200 by the same 
Lord Ranald of the Isles. It was built for 
Benedictine nuns, but, after a time, passed 
into the possession of the Cistercian Order. 
The modern parish church of Iona occupies 
the site of an ancient chapel of St Kenneth. 
There is now within the bounds, in the 
Ross of Mull, a mission chapel of St Ernan.]

two parishes. Of these, Kirkapol contains 
all the north-eastern portion of the island, 
and the south - western part forms the 
parish of Sorobie. On 31st July 1618 the 
three parishes of Kirkapol, Sorobie, and 
Coll were united. On 11th March 1865 
Coll was severed from the two parishes in 
Tiree. On 15th February 1875 Heylipol or 
Sorobie was disjoined from Kirkapol, the 



only remaining portion of the former 
united parishes of Tiree. "Within the 
bounds of Kirkapol there were three chapels. 
The ruins of that of St Oran at Cladh 
Odhrain near Kirkapol still stand. The 
other chapels were St Bride's at Cill Bhride, 
and St Finain's at Cill Fhinain.]

William, Duke of Argyll, Sept. 1814 ; ord. 
27th April 1815. Being in feeble health 
he left the island without leave being given 
by the Presb., and went to reside at 
Ayr. On 6th June 1815 he was ordered 
back to his parish. A letter from him, 
dated 11th July, explained that the state 
of his health forbade such a step, and 
that under the circumstances the patron 
had appointed an assistant and successor. 
On 7th Nov. he was again enjoined to 
return, but again declined, stating, however, 
that he had arranged for the pastoral 
duties to be carried on until his successor 
was admitted. On revising the proceedings 
of the Presb., the Synod, on 7th Aug. 
1816, recorded their high disapprobation of 
the conduct of the Presb., particularly 
for proceeding in such ordination and 
admission without requiring a certificate 
from the Presb. in whose bounds M. had 
resided, which was the more necessary in 
his case as it was publicly reported and 
generally believed that he had for many 
years before been in orders of the Church 
of England. The Presb. was rebuked. M. 
had never been present as a member of 
the Court. He died at Ayr 21st March 
1816, four months before the meeting of 
Synod. [See Hew Scott, vol. iii., 90, for

SYNOD OF PERTH AND STIRLING 

The Synod Register begins at the 10th of April 1639. There are gaps in the 
Eecord from 12th April 1661 to 4th March 1691, from 18th April 1753 
to 15th April 1755, and from 16th April 1804 to 19th April 1808. 



PRESBYTERY OF DUNKELD 

[The setting up of a Presbytery of Dunkeld was under consideration of the General 
Assembly in 1581. The Presbytery Register, however, does not begin till 2nd Nov. 1681. 
From 3rd July 1689 to 29th Oct. 1706 this Court was united to the Presbytery of Perth. 
There is, therefore, during that time no separate Record of the Presbytery of Dunkeld. In 
1651 those members of this Court who belonged to the party of the Protesters formed 
themselves into a separate Protester Presbytery of Dunkeld. That Protester Presbytery 
lasted for some years, but no Record of its proceedings is known to exist.] 



AUCHTERGAVEN AND LOGIE- 
BR1DE. 

[These parishes were first united in 1618. 
They were severed again in 1632, but were 
united a second time in 1647. 

Auchtergaven. — On the lands of Tully- 
beagles, within the bounds, there are the 
scanty remains of an ancient church build- 
ing. Near it is a holy well. The name 
Tullybeagles may, perhaps, be Tidach na 
h-eaglais = The hill of the Church. There 
is a mission chapel within the parish at 
Waterloo. 

Logie-Bride. — The church of this parish 
was dedicated to St Bride. It still stands 
roofless in the old churchyard. Near it 
was St Bride's Well.]

DUNKELD AND DOWALLIE. 

[These parishes were united before the 
middle of the seventeenth century. 

Dunkeld. — From a very early time 
Dunkeld was the seat of a richly en- 
dowed Celtic Abbey. Like other well- 
known monasteries of that period, the 
Abbey of Dunkeld fell ultimately under 
the sway of a powerful landed family, 
whose chiefs succeeded one another as 
hereditary abbots. Notable among these 
lay abbots of Dunkeld was Creathanan 
Mac Dhonochaidh, who married Beathag, 
the elder daughter of King Malcolm II. 
Their son Duncan came to the throne 
upon the death of his grandfather Malcolm, 
and his son Malcolm III. made good his 
title to the royal inheritance in 1057. 
Since then all the Kings of Scotland have 
sprung from the line of Creathanan the 
Abbot. Alexander I., the eighth son of 
Malcolm III., succeeded to the Crown in 
1107, and in that year he converted the 
Abbey of Dunkeld into a bishopric, making 
Cormac, the then ruling Abbot, its first 
bishop. The vicarage of Dunkeld was, 
until the time of the Reformation, a very 
small parish. Its parochial bounds reached 
but a short way beyond the limits of the 



154 



DUNKELD 



[presb. or 



little cathedral town. There was, more- 
over, no parish church. In the cathedral 
were held all the church services of the 
parish. This may possibly have been, at 
least in part, a surviving usage of those 
early times when Dunkeld was under the 
rule of a great abbot, and the government 
of the Scottish Church was still in some 
degree monastic. The cathedral stands on 
a beautiful site, on the left bank of the 
Tay, close to the river. In 1560 it was 
made the church of the parish. It is 
224 feet in length ; but the nave has long 
been roofless. The choir, tower, and 
chapter-house are complete. At the be- 
ginning of the twentieth century the 
choir was finely restored by Sir Donald 
Currie of Garth, Bart., K.C.M.G. In the 
square chapter-house on the north side of 
the church the Duke of Atholl has a burial- 
place. There are a number of monuments 
in various parts of the building, some of 
them very fine. St Columba is the patron, 
as he was of old of the Celtic Abbey ; and 
St Columba's Well was hard by, close to the 
river bank. Besides the high altar of St 
Columba, there were, in the cathedral, 
shrines of the Holy Rood, St Mary, the 
Holy Innocents, St John the Baptist, All 
Saints, St Michael, St Andrew, St Ninian, 
St Martin, St Nicholas, St Stephen, and 
St Katherine. In the town of Dunkeld, 
Robert of Cardney, one of the bishops, 
built a chapel of St Ninian in 1420. In 
1510 Bishop George Broun also founded 
there a hospital of St George. Besides 
these, Dunkeld had a chapel of the Holy 
Trinity. On St Columba's day the town 
kept a yearly fair in honour of the 
patron saint. 

Doioallie. — In early times St Muireach 
made Dowallie the seat of his mission 
work among the Picts. The country 
tradition has not ceased to tell of the 
many pilgrims who used to visit his holy 
well near the church. In 1500 Bishop 
Broun rebuilt the ancient chapel of St 
Muireach, and gave the new building the 
name of St Anne. In that year, too, the 
bishop disjoined the parish of Dowallie 
from Caputh. It was then also that the 
well beside the churchyard was dedicated 



to St Anne, so that Dowallie had two 
holy wells. At Guay, within the bounds, 
a hospital was founded in 1340. Farther 
north, at Dalcapon, there was a chapel 
with its sacred well. At the Crues Hill, 
near Dunkeld, but in this parish, a well 
of the Holy Rood was much frequented on 
the first Sunday in May. The church of 
Dowallie was restored in 1818, and is now 
in use as a mission chapel.]

DULL. 

[The parish church was dedicated to St 
Ninian, and prior to the Reformation 
belonged to the Priory of St Andrews. 
From a very early time there was at Dull 
a great Celtic monastery. Like other 
foundations of that kind, it fell under the 
sway of a powerful landed family, and its 
government was more or less hereditary. 
The wide estate which its abbots thus held 
is still called the Appin (Abbot's Lands) of 
Dull. Part of the old monastic property 
also bears the name of Dalmonach (The 
Monk's Field). In the twelfth century 
this ancient abbey, like others, was con- 
verted by the Crown into a Tironensian 
Priory. Its patron was always St Adam- 
nan, and St Adamnan's Well was at the 
Priory. The parish church had, beside it, 
a Well of St Ninian. An important yearly 
market held at Dull was called Feill Eonain 
(Adamnan's Fair). The parish of Fincastle, 
now named Tenandry, was united to Dull 
in the seventeenth century, but was dis- 
joined again in 1851.]

KENMORE, of old INISADAIN. 

[The ancient church of this parish was 
dedicated to St Aidan. Its site at Inis- 
adain (Aidan's Meadow), on the north bank 
of the Tay, is now within the grounds of 
Taymouth Castle. At Kenmore, to which 
place the church has been moved, there 
was long held a Fair of St Peter. A 
parish church was built at Kenmore in 
1579, but the old church was used 
occasionally until 1760, when the manse 
was removed from Inisadain. On the 
island of Ealean Adain (Aidan's Isle), near 
the east end of Loch Tay and not far 
from Kenmore, there was an early Celtic 
monastic foundation. At this place, on 
the 12th of July 1122, Queen Sibyl, wife 
of Alexander I., died suddenly. At Ealean 
Adain she was buried, and forthwith King 



is:

[PKESB. OF 



Alexander renewed the ancient foundation, 
making it, however, an Augustinian Priory. 
He then, for the good of his own soul and 
that of his departed queen, bestowed Ealean 
Adain on the Abbey of Scone, of which it 
became a cell. At Carwhyn, in this parish, 
there is a mission chapel.]

[DUGALD BUCHANAN, Royal Bounty 
catechist, born Ardoch, Balquhidder, 
1716, son of John B., farmer and 
miller, and Janet Ferguson (a relative of 
Rob Roy) ; educated at the S.P.C.K. School, 
Balquhidder, and at Stirling. He began 
life as a carpenter at Kippen. In 1742 he 
came under the influence of the preaching 
of George Whitefield, and spent much of 
his time in religious meditation and the 
writing of sacred verse. In 1751 he taught 
a side school at Drumcastle, in the parish, 
and in 1755 became schoolmaster at Kin- 
loch-Rannoch, being appointed also to the 
post of catechist. He had remarkable in- 
fluence as an evangelist. It is said that 
two clans who were at deadly feud assem- 
bled to hear him preach : he spoke from a 
rock in the middle of the river Gaur, which 
separated the rival parties, and pled so 
earnestly with his audience that the people, 
overcome with emotion, rushed into the 
stream and embraced one another, and 
from that day forward a " truce of God " 
existed between the two clans. In the 
General Assembly of 1761 it was reported 
that " the country of Rannoch from being 
possessed by the most lawless and thievish 
people, is now becoming greatly civilised, 
and no thefts or robberies are heard of 
among the inhabitants, 2000 in number." 
He assisted James Stuart, min. of Killin, 
in publishing the first edition of the Gaelic 
New Testament. For this purpose he went 
to Edinburgh — to supervise the printing — 
and while there he took classes in the 
University and founded the first Gaelic 
congregation in the city. A movement was 
set on foot for his ordination, but the 
Presb. refused consent. While attending 
to his wife and family, who had been 
stricken with an epidemic fever at Ran- 
noch, he caught the infection and died 
2nd June 1768. He was buried at Little 
Leny, Balquhidder. On 17th Nov. 1875 a 
handsome monument was erected to his 
memory at Kinloch-Rannoch. Known as 
the "Cowper of the Highlands," B.'s 
poetical genius was of the first order, and 
some of his poems — "The Day of Judg- 
ment," " The Dream," " The Skull," " The 
Sufferings of Christ," and "Winter,"

were frequented by pilgrims. The yearly 
tryst of Weem was called in his honour, 
Feill Dhaidh (David's Fair). On 5th July 
1921 a decree transporting the church to 
a building formerly used as an Episcopal 
Chapel was pronounced by Court of Teinds.]

PRESBYTERY OF PERTH 

[The erection of a Presbytery of Perth was under the consideration of the General 
Assembly as early as April 1581. The Presbytery Register, however, does not now 
begin till 22nd April 1618. There are gaps in the Record from 27th March 1661 to 
29th Oct. 1662, and from 21st Sept. 1681 to 30th July 1690. An earlier volume than any 
of those extant began in 1595. It was in the hands of the Presbytery Clerk on 
15th March 1626, but no trace of it can now be found.]

impossible to hold Protestant services. 

Dupplin. — In 1564 it was reported to the 
Secret Council that the kirk of the Rectory 
of Dupplin was kept closed, so that the 
Reformed worship could not be held there.]

[PRESB. OF 



ABERNETHY, of old OBAIR 
NEACHTAIN. 

[The church of Abernethy was dedicated 
to St Bride. It belonged to the Abbey 
of Arbroath. In 1460 George, Earl of 
Angus, granted to this church a collegiate 
endowment. From early Pictish times 
Abernethy was the seat of a great Celtic 
Abbey. The high, round tower of this 
monastery, standing by itself in the church- 
yard, and looking over the church, is one 
of our most interesting early buildings. 
In 1273 the abbey was converted into an 
Augustinian Priory, and was made a Cell 
of Inchaffray, retaining, however, its ancient 
dedication to St Bride. There is in this 
parish a Well of St Breandan.]

PERTH, ST JOHN'S. 

[St John's, Perth, called for a time the 
parish of St Johnstoun. — The church of 
Perth was dedicated to St John the Baptist, 
and the town itself was long known as St 
Johnstoun. Its ancient Celtic name of 
Perth was then seldom heard except among 
those who spoke Gaelic. The church 
belonged to the Abbey of Dunfermline. 
Prior to 1603, Perth was a favourite place 
of royal residence. Its name is often seen 
on the pages of Scottish history. In this 
prominence St John's Church has a share. 
In 1296 the English king, Edward I., 
stayed for some time at Perth. On St 
John's Day in Harvest, he was one of the 
worshippers in the church. 

In medieval times, Perth was long the 
chief seat of monastic life and influence in 
Scotland. The friars in especial had 
much power there. In Perth, as elsewhere 
during the sixteenth century, popular 
feeling came to be keenly hostile to the 
friars. Thus Perth was made a battle- 
ground of the Reformation struggle. In 
1407, James Resby, an English priest, and 
probably a refugee from the rising Lollard 
persecution in England, was tried for 
heresy and burned at Perth. On one day 
in 1544, five of the citizens of St Johnstoun, 
and the wife of one of them, were executed 
there as heretics, the men being hanged 
and the woman drowned. So the strife 
was kept up. On the 10th of May 1559 it 
came to a head. In St John's Church that

morning, a sermon on image worship and 
other prevalent religious practices was 
preached by John Knox. His hearers 
were moved indeed, but the service came 
quietly to an end, and the preacher went 
his way. Later in the day, during a service 
before one of the altars of the church, 
some brawling took place. Quickly a riot 
arose, and the church furnishings were 
badly damaged. Forthwith the outbreak 
spread throughout the town, and was 
turned with great violence against the 
friars. Thus, as from a chance spark, 
there was kindled in Perth a flame that 
soon set the whole land ablaze. 

In 1618 the General Assembly met at 
Perth. Some of its meetings, probably 
all of them, were held in St John's 
Church. 

Here, as in other Scottish towns, the 
population has grown greatly, and more 
or less steadily, since the middle of the 
sixteenth century. In 1595 this growth 
led to the erection of a Second Charge in 
the ministry of Perth. But the burden of 
a prosperous community went on growing. 
Therefore it was proposed to erect the land- 
ward district of Perth into a separate 
parish. In 1651, however, when this 
scheme had been fully matured, the Town 
Council found itself compelled to delay 
further action in the matter "because of 
the troubles of the times." The subject 
was taken up again in 1693, and at later 
dates, but without reaching a practical 
result. On 14th February 1715 action of 
another kind was taken. The Town 
Council, " because of the growing numbers 
of the inhabitants of the town and parish," 
resolved that a Third Charge should be 
erected. This was carried out, and William 
Wilson was appointed minister. No endow- 
ment was raised for the purpose, but 
the stipend was provided by a yearly 
payment from the city funds. In 1740 
Mr Wilson ceased to be a minister of the 
Church of Scotland, and in 1741 the Town 
Council, alleging that a third minister of 
Perth was no longer needed, withdrew its 
grant for payment of the stipend. In lieu 
of the minister of the Third Charge, an 
ordained assistant to the incumbents of 



the First and Second Charges was main- 
tained by the Kirk-session, and so the work 
of the parish was carried on. 

During the eighteenth century the need 
of accommodation for the worshipping 
parishioners grew more and more urgent. 
As a sort of stop-gap, in 1715 St John's 
Church was partitioned off into two places 
of worship, termed the Old and the New 
Churches. When these failed to hold the 
people, the ancient church was further 
divided into three parts, called the East, 
the Middle, and the West Churches. The 
method adopted for public worship was 
curious. Each of the three ministers, in 
turn, conducted service successively in each 
of the three churches. Thus a constant 
rotation of ministry was kept up. This 
system lasted till 1806. Then, because of 
the growing number of those for whom no 
room could be found in St John's, the 
Town Council resolved to suppress the 
Second Charge, to build a new church, and 
to call a fourth minister. Accordingly, St 
Paul's Church was built in 1807. The Second 
Charge having come to an end, three new 
parochial districts were taken off St John's 
Parish. These were the Middle Parish, the 
West Parish, and St Paul's. The eastern 
part of the ancient church was left in 
the possession of the remaining portion of 
St John's Parish. This included a great 
part of the city, with all the large landward 
district. It has come to be commonly 
called the East Parish of Perth. 

St John's Church is a building worthy of 
its historic parish. It is rather less than 
200 feet long, but of old it was somewhat 
larger. There were many altars in it, 
including shrines of the Holy Trinity, the 
Holy Name, St Mary, St Joseph, St 
Gabriel, St Michael, St Peter, St Bartholo- 
mew, St Nicholas, St Eloi, St Ninian, St 
Duthac, St Tridwal, St Erasmus, St Crispin,

Magdalene, St Barbara, St Denys, and 
St Christopher. 

Medieval Perth was in great measure a 
town of priests and monks. The oldest 
and most famous of its convents was the 
House of the Black Friars, founded in 
1231 by King Alexander II. It was built 
a short way outside the walls, and was 
dedicated to St John and St James. It 
was much favoured as a royal residence. 
There were times too when the king's 
enemies occupied it. It was in the House 
of the Black Friars, on the 24th of July 
1291, that Edward I. of England received 
the homage of the city of Perth, and of the 
chief men of the country round. In this 
religious house, on the 21st of February 
1437, King James I. was murdered. There 
were notable monuments in its church over 
those who lay buried there, among them the 
tomb of Elizabeth Mure, the first wife of 
Robert II. In that church, too, there were 
chapels of St John the Evangelist and St 
Nicholas. Some way off, but also close 
to the city walls, stood the Priory of the 
Charterhouse, founded in 1429 by James I. 
and his Queen Joanna Beaufort. They 
both were buried in its church. There too, 
in 1541, were laid the remains of Queen 
Margaret Tudor, widow of James IV. 
With the exception of the small Priory of 
Mackerston, this great monastery was the 
only convent of the Carthusians in Scotland. 
After the quaint manner of their Order, 
they termed it the House of the Valley of 
Virtue. On the other side of Perth, but 
just outside of the town, and by the side 
of the Tay, stood the House of the Grey 
Friars, founded in 1460 by Laurence, first 
Lord Oliphant. In accordance with the 
strict rules of the Observantine Branch of 
the Order, to which it belonged, it was 
quite a plain building, and was of but 
moderate size. A larger and more ornate 
edifice was the House of the White Friars, 
built by Alexander III. in 1262. It was 
placed at Tullilum in the landward part of 
the parish, and was less than a mile from 
Perth. 

There were also in this parish, partly in 
the town and partly outside of it, various 
religious houses of a smaller kind. At the 



end of the Bridge of Perth, on the town 
side of the Tay, was the chapel of St Mary. 
It was already there in 1210. Outside the 
town, and about a mile to the south of it, 
stood the Hospital of St Magdalene, 
worked by a little community of nuns. 
Nearer Perth was St Leonard's Hospital 
and Priory, a Cistercian House. Not far 
from it stood the chapel of St Laurence. 
Between it and St John's Church there 
was the Hospital of St Anne. In the 
heart of the city stood the chapel of the 
Holy Rood. There too was St Paul's 
Hospital, built in 1434. On the north side 
of Perth, at the place called the Claypots, 
stood the Hospital of St Katherine and 
the chapel of Our Lady of Loretto, in 
which were altars of St Nicholas and St 
Katherine. 

To keep in mind the birth of its patron 
saint, Perth held the fair of St John in 
Harvest. By the fair of Midsummer Day 
it commemorated his martyrdom. So far 
back as 1442, the Midsummer Tryst was a 
leading event of the year. Four other 
fairs were annually observed — Our Lady 
Day in Lentron, being the Feast of the 
Annunciation, Palm Sunday, Andrew mas 
Fair, and the Tryst of St Denys. 

On 27th Oct. 1921, a summons was pre- 
sented to the Court of Teinds by the Lord. 
Provost, Magistrates, and Councillors of 
Perth as heritors of the parish, in which 
they stated that it is highly expedient that 
the Church of St John should be restored, 
and they outlined a scheme whereby the 
existing parishes, East, Middle, and West, 
should be disjoined and erected into two 
parishes — namely, the parish of St John 
and the parish of St Mark. The former 
is to embrace the building known as the 
Church of St John the Baptist, and the 
latter the existing Chapel of Ease, St 
Mark's Church. 

The existing East, Middle, and West 
Churches will be combined into one church 
in the present building as restored, and the 
present ministers of the East and Middle 
parishes will become the ministers of St 
John's Parish, while the present minister of 
the West Church will become the first 
minister of St Mark's Parish.]

probably have led to his promotion ; but 
owing to ill-health he was compelled to 
return to Scotland, when he was appointed 
nuncio to investigate the causes of the 
Reformation and to devise means for check- 
ing its progress. He reached Eyemouth on 
29th Sept. 1558, but finding himself unable 
to fulfil his injunctions, returned to Rome 
before 11th May 1559. After a short resi- 
dence there, he came back by persuasion of 
James, Prior of St Andrews, afterwards 
Earl of Moray, and having seen the false- 
hood and imposition of a pretended miracle 
at St Allaret's Chapel, Musselburgh, he 
joined the Reformers. He was adm. to 
Kennoway in April 1560, before the Re- 
formation was fully established ; was one

Parliament at Perth, 9th July 1606, he 
entertained a large number of ministers 
in his house, and there the Protestation 
signed by him and forty-one others against 
the introduction of Episcopacy was revised 
previous to being laid before the Lords of 
the Articles. He was summoned before 
the Court of High Commission, 8th Aug. 
1615, for presuming, in the dedication of 
his Commentary, to solicit His Majesty 
to mitigate the sentence pronounced on 
those brethren who had been banished for 
holding an Assembly at Aberdeen contrary 
to the royal pleasure. During a great flood 
of the Tay from 13th to 15th Oct. 1621, 
which inundated the city and demolished 
the bridge, he met with his parishioners on 
Sunday, 14th, at 7 A.M., and several days 
after, and by "his powerful exhortation 
moved the people to cry to God with tears, 
clamours, and cries, to hold up their hearts 
to God to amend their lives." He died 3rd

SCONE. 



[The church of this parish was dedicated 
to St Monenna. It belonged to the ancient 
and famous Abbey of Scone which stood 
in this parish. Originally an early Celtic 
monastery, it was founded anew as an 
Augustinian Abbey by Alexander I. in 
1114. It was then re-dedicated of new 
to the Holy Trinity, St Mary, St 
Michael, St John, St Laurence, and St 
Augustine. In early times Scone was a 
Pictish stronghold. In its Abbey Pictish 
Kings and their Scottish successors of the 
race of Kenneth MacAlpin were proclaimed, 
and invested with sovereign power. At a 
later date, when Macbeth and Lulach 
had both been overthrown, Malcolm III. 



was crowned at Scone on 25th April 
1058. The following among his successors 
were likewise crowned at Scone— Malcolm 
IV., William the Lion, Alexander II., 
Alexander III., John Baliol, Robert the 
Bruce, Edward Baliol, Robert II., Robert 
III., James I., James IV., and Charles II. 
Many meetings of Parliament and other 
royal functions were held at Scone Abbey. 
Here long reposed the famous stone Lia 
Fail, now at Westminster. In the Abbey 
Church King Robert II. was buried on 
13th Aug. 1390. A new church was built 
at New Scone in 1804-5. It is constructed 
almost entirely from the material of a 
church erected only twenty years before, 
the stones marked and numbered as they 
were taken down, being put up in the same 
order. The oak pew of the Scone family, 
bearing the date 1616, was brought from 
Holland, and upon it Charles II. was 
crowned in 1651. 

There is now in the parish of Scone a 
mission chapel of St David.]

PRESBYTERY OF AUCHTERARDER 



[In April 1581 the General Assembly had under consideration a proposal to erect at 
Crieff a Presbytery for this district. In 1593, however, we find the court seated at 
Dunblane. In that year the Assembly caused it to be removed to Auchterarder. In the 
seventeenth century the place of meeting was changed to Muthill ; but, after a few years, 
the court was brought back to Auchterarder. The Register of Presbytery begins at 
29th April 1668. There is a gap in the Record from 7th Sept. 1687 to 9th Nov. 1703. 
It is believed that some of the earlier Records of the Presbytery may yet exist in private 
hands.]

[These parishes were united about the 
beginning of the seventeenth century. 

Auchterarder. — The church of Auchter- 
arder, founded in 1200, was dedicated to 
St Kessog. It belonged to the Abbey of 
Inchaffray. The old parish church, now 
ruined, is a building over 80 feet in length. 
Beside it is St Kessog's Well. There was 
of old, in the town of Auchterarder, a 
chapel of St Mary. It has been rebuilt, 
and is now the parish church. Beside the 
old church a fair of St Kessog was long 
held on 10th March. 

Aberuthven. — The church of Aberuthven 
was dedicated to St Catan, whose festival 
was held on 17th May. It belonged to the 
Abbey of Inchaffray, but later to the Abbey 
of Arbroath. The old church, now roofless, 
and partly ruined, is over 65 feet long.]
