Notes

NGR is for the parish kirk of Kilmallie parish. In 1630 a strange story is recounted of the supernatural conception of a male child, by a 'wench' sitting close to a fire to warm herself, when some ashes from human bones in the fire impregnate her. The child so conceived was 'Gille dow Maghre-vollich, that is to say the black child, son to the bones so coalled', and it was he who built the church of Kilmallie (Geog. Coll. ii, 162).
