The Blair Atholl Kirk Session Minutes are now available from 1718 to May 1751 and indexed which should make it easier for searching.

The Session Minutes have been extended to April 1753 and the index has been up-dated.

These are very hard times.  Lots of testificates for people leaving the parish, one of them a merchant, and the Session had to pay for the burial of two women who were destitute.  So it is good to see that the Duchess of Atholl gave substantial sums to help the poor of the parish.

At the same time a loft (balcony) was added to the church at Struan, the Struan bridge was repaired yet again, and the loft seating at St Brides was replaced.

In terms of naughtiness, James Cook was involved in a 'riot', while Charles Stewart in Glaicneid
discovered that it was cheaper to have naughtiness in another parish!

(The error with the 1750 index has been rectified - remember to refresh your web-page)
