Parish notes

Both parsonage and vicarage were annexed to the collegiate church of Bothwell, on its erection in 1307/8, on petition by Archibald earl of Douglas. The teinds were utilised for the support of 3 prebends within the college, while the cure became, as it remained at the Reformation, a vicarage pensionary (GRH Vat. Trans. ii, 30 ff; Glas. Reg. lxviii; Thirds 18, 19, 270; RSS lvii 172). Cowan 1967, 188-9. The part of the parish lying on the left bank of the Avon seems not to have been anciently portion of the barony which constituted the parish. It belonged to the parish, however, before the Reformation..... The church was dedicated to St Ninian [footnote: Commiss. Records of Glasgow] OPS i, 108. 3/2000: note that John Young, 16 Spinningdale, Stonehouse ML9 3QS has been doing a lot of collecting and some analysing of names of the parish, especially from Pont MS 34.
