Parish notes

The church of the medieval parish stood at Kilchrist (from Kilchrist). Also known as Cill Chriosd or Tarradale, the teinds were in dispute between the then rector and Beauly in 1274, the latter being granted certain teinds for 8 years (Beauly Chrs. cited OPS II ii, 522-3). But the church does not seem to have been appropriated. In 1372 William e. of Ross is reputed to have granted it to Fearn, but also no sign that this was effective. At Reformation the parsonage is shown to have been a prebend of Ross from some unknown date (see OPS II, ii, 523; RSS, li 90) - Cowan 1967, 98 (Kilchrist).
