Note: This volume is very hard to read - much of it is quite faded, in various archaic handwriting styles, and, in places, largely disintegrated.  So, even more so than usual, please take these transcriptions with a grain of salt and plan to check out the original yourself.  Particularly doubtful or illegible text appears in brackets.  Frame numbers appear at the top of each page to help place the records.

N.B. There is a blank in this record of baptisms from 1712-1731 - the entries from the latter date will be found among the proclamations for the same period.

For three entries of Baptisms 1711-12, see after Marriages for April 1710


Records from 1731 forward appear to be part of the kirk session records; see the marriages page for these records
