Parish notes

The parsonage teinds were assigned for erection of prebend of Moray in 1224, and this was subsequently effected by conjunction with the parsonage of Aberlour before 1226, the prebend itself being known by this latter name. The vicarage perpetual of Botriphnie appears at some period before the Reformation to have been linked with that of Botarie to form a single cure (Moray Reg. nos. 31, 61, 67, 69; Assumptions, 30v, 410 [= Ass. 478]; RSS, xlii. 67v. Cowan 1967, 21. For Botarie (now in Cairnie CIE ABD) see Botarie BTX ABD.
