Parish notes

Cowan (1967, 54) says that the church, aka St Skeoch or Skeochy, was annexed to Restennet at an early date [RRS i no.195] and that it was in origin a chapel of Restennet, it first appearing as such in the 15th c. - but that it attained parochial status before the Reformation when both parsonage and vicarage fruits continued to be held by the priory as a dependency of Jedburgh, the cure then being served by a chaplain (CPL xii, 360-1; RS, 662, 47; RMS iii no.2074; Assumptions 220v). However, it is clear from the various taxation lists (+ Bagimond) that it was a church already by the mid 13th c.
