Parish Key



If you need to use the M'Kerlie page references,
it will be up to you to find a source for these elderly books.



The parishes for the barony, estate or property names can be located in the parish and property list by use of the keys given. For example, Cutreoch (q) [the reference being just a letter, with no number] is a property in Whithorn, while Polwhilly (m6) [the reference is a letter plus a number] is a tenanted farm on the property of Clary or Clachary in Penninghame.

Example - to locate the info for Aird

In this case, you will find h2 218 ii, which means that it is in parish h, property 2, and more information can be found on page 218 of volume ii of the 1880 edition.
