Parish notes

The abbey of Cambuskenneth evidently possessed parochial status, reference being made in 1436 to ‘ecclesie parrochialis monasterii de Cambuskynneth’, the entire revenues of which would pertain to the abbey (Camb. Reg. no.209). Cowan 1967, 25. It seems to have been divided after the Reformation, but remained in CLA till 1891 (see Stirling STG STL). Reports on the State, 201: that pairt of the Abbay kirk of Cambuskenneth quho in respect of the vicinitie thairof to the kirk of Logie ar thairto annexit.’ Ibid p.206 states that said kirk of Cambuskenneth divided amongst 3 kirks: ‘the toun of the Abbay gois to Stirling kirk, the landis of Cambus gois to Alloway and the rest following cumis to Logie, howbeit thei be not annexit be any parliament.’ The lands are Eistgrange, Vestgrange, Craigtoun, Vnder the Craig, Powhous.
