Parish notes

In Cowan 1967 under Bertramshotts (p. 17). In spite of an attempt to erect the chapel into a parish kirk in 1476, it appears to have remained a pendicle of the parish kirk of Bothwell. The cure was served by a vicar maintained by the provost of the Collegiate Church to whom both parsonage and vicarage revenues pertained (CPL xiii, 489; RMS ii nos. 1784, 3635; Edin. Test., ii 108). Cowan 1967, 17.
