9781332278497: Scottish Record Society, Vol. 73: Register of Births and Marriages for the Episcopal Congregation at St. Andrews, 1722-1787 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Scottish Record Society, Vol. 73: Register of Births and Marriages for the Episcopal Congregation at St. Andrews, 1722-1787

These fragments of Registers and list of subscriptions belonging to the Episcopal Church (St. Andrew's) at St. Andrews, Fife, are here kindly printed at the instance of the Scottish Record Society.

They only embrace a comparatively short period of years, 1722-1787, and, as Mr. Oliphant tells us in his Historical Notes relating to this congregation, "it was by a mere accident that even these scanty records were preserved. When or how they were lost or thrown away there is nothing to show, but they were found by Mr. George Cruickshank, postmaster of St. Andrews, and a member of the Vestry of the Congregation from 1821 until shortly before his death in 1874, in a tobacconists shop, where parts of them had been already used for wrapping up snuff! This must have been prior to 1843, as passing mention of these registers made in Lyon's History of St. Andrews, which was published in that year.

Apparently these fragments disappeared again during a change of incumbents. 1869-70, together with an old minute book, which. however, was recovered in November 1872. and the registers probably with it. though one portion of them between 1740 and 1748 scenic to have then been irrevocably lost.

Small as these fragments are. they are of real interest, and contain the names of most families belonging to the congregation during the years to which they refer.

The Registers consist of two parts, the first with no cover, and from which apparently sheets have been turn off at the beginning and end, and now embracing the period from 8th July 1722 to 5th July 1757. the second, which seems to be entire, and having a wrapper of coarse brown paper containing entries 191 baptisms and 14 marriages 1748-1787.

The list of subscriptions looks magnificent, but the pound there recorded are "Scots," not English!
