Parish notes

Confirmed to Scone by Richard bp. of St A. 1165x78, who quitclaimed all rights which the bishop might possess in that church, this was confirmed by William I and once again by Richard, with the provision that a chaplain might serve the cure (Scone Lib. 40-2, 48, 103). Both parsonage and vicarage were thus annexed, Liff LIB q.v. and Invergowrie LIB q.v. being treated as pendicles from the 15th c. onwards, the cure then being served by one of the canons but normally by a vicar pensioner or curate (Ass. 399; CPL x, 504; RS 447; Prot. Bk. Gray, 6). Cowan 1967, 137.
