Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae, H Scott (1915)

The Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae,  is a record of the succession of Ministers in the Church of Scotland from the Reformation (1560). Not all the Registers have survived the years. The ministers often covered more than one parish kirk and during their early years moved around the country, covering vacancies, and  gaining experience before eventually settling. There is an  entry for the sometimes short stay at each kirk with a more detailed resume , including  family details, for the parish in which they eventually settled. The following are selected extracts from the updated version (1917, 1920, 1926  ) of this seminal work.
