Gleanings from an Old Register

The Rev Wm McMillan, Ph D, DD, St Leonard’s Parish Church, Dunfermline

This article will reward careful reading. The Register in question is that of the Cameronian Societies from 1706 to 1751 and was kept by the Rev John McMillan, one time minister of Balmaghie in the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright. McMillan has not only recorded the details of the baptisms administered by him, but has also included some notes of relating to the children and their families. The author of the article has also drawn on his own knowledge of similar documents in order to compare and contrast entries, rendering the whole of interest not only to the serious student engaged in research, but also to those with an interest in the customs of the first half of the 18th century.
