Parish notes

Granted with all its teinds to the newly founded hospital of Kincardine O’Neil KCO by its founder Alan Durward, before 1231, this grant was confirmed in 1250 (Abdn. Reg. ii, 268, 274). While in origin the church may have been independent, it was thenceforward regarded as a pendicle of Kincardine O’Neil, its fruits, both parsonage and vicarage, being erected into a prebend of Aberdeen cathedral by Bp. Alexander de Kyninmund (Abdn. Reg. i, 51, 64-5, 83; ii, 252). See Kincardine O’Neil for more details. Cowan 1967, 140. Is the chapel of Forthery now Fordie KCO? Alexander 1952, 279 has earliest form of this name: Fordie ‘cum the Banzeauchhauch 1601 Alexander 1952, 279
