Parish notes

Also known as Kilcolmonell, the church was confirmed to the bishopric of Glasgow in 1179 & 1216, becoming a common church of the chapter to whom the parsonage pertained at the Reformation (Glasg. Reg. nos.51, 111; etc.). See Cowan 1967 for more details and refs.. The upper (eastern) part of this parish seems now to be represented by Barr parish BAR.
