Parish notes

Known also as Tullywhull, the church, which in origin was a chapel of Fordyce, remained a pendicle at the Reformation. Both parsonage and vicarage thus passed with the mother church to the common fund of the canons of Aberdeen cathedral at some date before 1272, while the church itself was served by a curate. (Abdn. Reg. i, 29-30, 74-5, 82; ii, 384; Ass. 385, 385v). Cowan 1967, 159.
