If you are looking for earlier burials at Boyndie, search for "Transcripts of all the Monumental Inscriptions in the Churchyard of Boyndie" and you will find a list produced by a local schoolmaster in 1885.
I'm afraid I have completely failed to find this online, or the similar one that used to be online with the Banff Old Kirkyard MIs.

I have just looked and a transcript of the volumes is to be found for Rathven, Deskford, Cullen, Boyndie and Enzie Braes here:

Sorry for my late reply.

That's correct in that I am looking for names/dates.

GR2 thank you for the link, will check it out.

As GR2 said, a transcription of Boyndie MIs is here - http://charlesflett.co.uk/BoyndieMI.htm
This website deserves much much wider recognition.
Margaret Shand also transcribed them - I have her version too.
I haven't compared the two transcriptions.

Years ago Douglas Taylor in Canada did the same for Banff - I have his version. I think it could still be deep in Rootswebs Archive for Banffshire way back in 1999 or 2000 (if they're still available).
But this is a link to Cramond's book, a free eBook - http://tinyurl.com/kfwr2vb - the MIs start on page 295.
