Parish notes

Erected into a prebend of the cathedral church of Moray by Bp. Brice 1208x15, the parsonage, with the addition of the church of Kintray, remained so annexed, while the cure was a vicarage perpetual (Mor. Reg. no.46 etc.). Cowan 1967, 187. In Mor. Reg. no.46 (1208x15) church of Spyny referred to several times as 'ecclesia Sancte Trinitatis' (when still the cathedral church of the bishops of Moray). Now includes this parish of Kintray KJX. No change mentioned in Shennan 1892.
