Notes

This is the former parish kirk of Echt. Nothing of the church is now to be seen, though its burial ground survives (NMRS). The dedication of the church to Fincana is attested in the Aberdeen Breviary on 13 October, 'de Sanctis uirginibus Fyncana et Fyndoca. ... Et notandum est quod Fyncana apud Etht Aberdonensis dyocesis et Fyndoca apud archidiaconatum Dumblanensis dyocesis uenerantur.'
