Parish notes

An account of 1527 credits Henry Le Chen, bp. of Aberdeen with the foundation of this prebend in 1314 (Abdn. Reg. ii 252). It was certainly one by 1437, both parsonage and vicarage being thus annexed, as they were at the Reformation (ibid. ii, 107, 254; Reg. of Pres. i, 108; Ass. 380 [= Ass. 427 - ‘parsonage of Lunmey 1562]; RSS v no.289). Cowan 1967, 139.
