Parish notes

Annexed to Tongland Abbey by 1471, when the church was recorded as being governed by a canon of that house, the original appropriation would appear to precede 1274, as the church does not appear in Bag. (CPL xiii, 295). The parsonage remained annexed to the abbey, by then annexed to the bishopric of Galloway, at the Reformation, while the cure, although an independent vicarage, was still held in the 16th c. by canons regular (see APS iv, 308). See Cowan 1967, 148 for more references.
