Parish notes

Cowan 1967, 58 (under Ogston MRY Elgn) says ‘possibly the chapel of Hogeston’ in Mor. Reg. no.94. He goes on ‘the church had soon attained parochial status and was served by a vicar. It was evidently from an early period, as it remained at the Reformation, a mensal church of the bishop of Moray to whom both parsonage and vicarage revenues accrued, while the cure was a vicarage pensionary. Cowan 1967, 158-9. United with Kinneddar before about 1666, when the united parish kirk was built at Drainie, whence the modern parish takes its name. The manse and glebe, however, remained at Kinneddar, about a mile eastward of the church.
