Bradag or Braclay
« on: Thursday 14 November 19 03:29 GMT (UK) »
Good day all,

Need some help with the entry for Helen Bean:

Sept 21 George Bean in Braclay (or Bradag) had a daughter baptized named Helen. Alexander Bean and John Strath witnesses.

I don''t know where Braclay or Bradag is? I did find a minor reference for a Baron of Braclay but not sure where that would be in Scotland? Parish register is from Tarves - I"m assuming that it's the name of a village, farm, or???

Help please.

It is "Braclay". On a modern map it will appear as Braiklay. There is a place of that name in the parish of Tarves and also one in the neighbouring parish of Methlick.
