Parish notes

Both parsonage and vicarage were erected by Pope Sixtus IV into a prebend of the newly erected collegiate church of Guthrie in 1479, so continuing thereafter, while the cure was evidently pensionary (CPL xiii, 137-9; Ass. 355). Cowan 1967, 118. In 18th c. Kirkbuddo XKB was a detached part of Guthrie parish GUT, and remained so until 1891, when it was made part of Inverarity (Shennan 1892, 195 q.v. for definition of Kirkbuddo).
