Parish notes

Included the chapel of Cockburnspath CBP BWK (see Rep. on State of Certain Parishes, 102). A parsonage in Bagimond, the church remained unappropriated, lying within the patronage of the earls of Bothwell in 16th century (Dunglass Writs no.1). £5 from the parish teinds were, however, allotted to the collegiate church of Dunglass in 1451, while Abbey St Bathans held many teinds within the parish.
