Parish notes

In 1617 a parliamentary commission united the parishes of Kilkerran, Kilmichael and Kilchousland, and in 1621 another commission was empowered to erect a church for serving the united parish (APS iv, 605, 607). The church appears to have been opened only in 1638. At a subsequent period Kilkevan was added to the united parish, afterwards named Lochead, and at a later period Campbeltown, but still known locally as Cean-loch-chille-Chiaran. OPS ii (1), 12.
