Blair Atholl Proclamations (1730 - 1739)

Proclamations and Marriages in the Parish of Blair Atholl

Although the Blair Atholl Old Parish Record of marriages contains a few proclamations between October 1733 and December 1734, it was not until November 1743 that marriages were properly recorded, and even then the record was not kept very well.

Some Blair Atholl marriages only appear in the OPRs of the adjacent parishes of Dull, Fortingall and Moulin, and are given here in bold type.

Where only a proclamation exists, the date is prefixed by 'P'. Some proclaimed marriages did not take place and are shown as (retracted). Entries which are not in strict chronological order but are recorded in the same year are marked with an asterisk * after the date. When an entry appears in a different year, the year of entry appears as a superscript after the asterisk * e.g. *07

The spelling of some surnames may appear erratic, but in some cases the exact spelling is crucial. If the IGI on-line database facility is being searched for the name McGregor, one might have expected the resulting list to include the names MacGregor, MacGrigor and McGrigore, but this is not always the case. Likewise, abbreviated names are a problem, and editorial brackets have been used. For example, Pat(rick) Stew(art) indicates that the IGI database will only recognise Pat Stew as the correct name. Editorial brackets have also been used to provide additional information, or to make educated guesses.

In most cases, the names of homesteads have been entered using a standardised spelling derived from the 1st edition of the Ordnance Survey (1867), rather than the anglecised version of the spoken Gaelic which can be extremely variable and confusing. For example "Balinteapail" and "Chapelton" both refer to Balchapel. It also allows the Gazetteer to be more easily used. Some places, such as Struan, Calvine, Trinafour and Blairfettie, are given in their present form, to help those less famliar with the parish to find locations on current maps.
