Nonconformist Church Records
Kinclaven United Presbyterian Church
This congregation originated in 1733 in the secession from the Established Church of its minister, one of the founders of the Secession Church. He was joined in his secession not only by the whole parish but by a number of persons residing in neighboring parishes, particularly that of Cargill, where a portion of that congregation withdrew from the Established Church and placed themselves under the Kinclaven minister. They continued to worship in the parish church until forcibly ejected from it by virtue of a Sheriff's warrant. They worshiped in the open air in summer, as they could not get ground to build a church, and in the winter they met in a barn. This arrangement continued until 1744 when they took possession of a place to worship which they erected for themselves in “The Muir” of Kinclaven.
