Parish notes

Logie-Mar and Coldstone parishes were united in 1618 (Fasti 103). In 1891 there were several changes made to the united parish of Logie-Coldstone: 1. The core of the medieval parish of Migvie, then part of Tarland and Migvie, was annexed to LOC; for details see LOC MVX. 2. the following were transferred from LOC to the parish of Tarland - these seem all to have belonged to the medieval parish of Coldstone, since they lie on the east side of LOC. They are TLD LOC: Bo(i)g TLD LOC; Easter Davoch TLD LOC (but Wester Davoch LOC), Glassel TLD LOC; Hill of Bo(i)g TLD LOC; Longfold TLD LOC; Melgum TLD LOC; Millhead TLD LOC & Winds' ee TLD LOC. Note: A.B. Coll. ii, 10-12: lands of 'Huchtirerne in Cromarre' etc. - can't find it in Alexander 1952 under Auchter; and doesn't seem to be Auchnerran GTG; the fact that in A.B. Ill. ii it is under Logie-Coldstone (LOC) would argue against it being to do with Glen Ernan, which was part of Migvie at this time (see STD MVX). So where was it? Black, Surnames no help, though mentions Auchterarne as a surname, and the place being in Mar.
