Parish notes

The parish of Kettins KET had a detached part which was also a detached part of ANG - situated at Bandirran. In 1891 it was transferred to the parish of Collace CCE and PER. See Shennan 1892, 202-3. In 1891 there was uncertainty as to whether West Kinnochtry was a detached part of Scone SCE or a part of Kettins KET in Perthshire. Without settling this claim, the Commissioners annexed the district at West Kinnochtry to Cargill CRL. The following subjects were affected: Boreland (part of farm + pendicle), Burnbrae, Burngrange, Greenmyre, Kinnochtry, East Kinnochtry [sic; surely a mistake for West Kinnochtry], Woodside and Stormontfield (part of farm). Shennan 1892, 240.
