Established Church—Old Parochial Registers
|Record Type||Years Covered||FHL Film Number|
Condition of Original Registers—
Indexed: For an index to these records, see the Scottish Church Records Index available on computers at the Family History Library and family history centers. The records may be indexed in the International Genealogical Index.
Births: The record is of baptisms. There is a duplicate of the record for October 1649–June 1664. Two pages at 1776–1781 are incomplete. Mothers' names are not recorded until November 1727 and are seldom entered 1738–1777.
Marriages: There are only eight transcribed entries of marriage contracts for 1639–1644 prior to November 1645. There are no entries for 1648. There are double records for December 1649–1664. From 1736 to 1802 except 1752–1758 and 1762–1777, the record is mixed with births for same period. There are no entries for 1802–1844, but the defect is partly supplied by a separate record of proclamation fees, or "pawns," which begins in 1684 and is continued up to 1834.
Deaths: Burials are recorded until April 1662. For April 1637–March 1647 there is only one entry, for 1640. There is no record for April 1662–1709 after which date there are only Mortcloth Dues, mixed with proclamation fees, etc.
