Tulliallan Parish Records


Church History

The parish of Tulliallan was of old a small parish consisting only of the barony of Tulliallan. The parish boundaries were however extended in 1673 when the barony of Kincardine-on-forth and the lands of Lurg, Sands and Kellywood were disjoined from Culross and added to Tulliallan. A new parish church was erected in 1675, replacing an earlier construction, and this was in turn replaced in 1833. In 1974 Tulliallan was united with Kincardine to form the session of Tulliallan and Kincardine. The kirk session sat within the jurisdiction of the Presbytery of Dunblane, later of Dunfermline and Kinross and, following the restructuring of the presbyteries in 1976, it became part of the Presbytery of Dunfermline.

Kincardine (Burgher) Church began in 1775 with a group who petitioned the Burgher Presbytery of Dunfermline and Perth. A congregation was formed which included members of the older congregation of Alloa West. The first minister was ordained in 1777, by which time a meeting-house seems to have been already built. A new church followed in 1819. It passed successively to the United Presbyterian and United Free Churches, and united with Tulliallan in 1914 as Kincardine and Tulliallan UF. This transferred to the Church of Scotland as Kincardine, which in 1974 united with Tulliallan as Tulliallan and Kincardine. The Church of Scotland charge was in the presbytery of Dunfermline and Kinross and the synod of Fife.

Tulliallan Free Church was organised as a congregation at the Disruption, with a new church opened in 1844, and was joined by an older group of Old Light Burghers in Kincardine village. Originally in Dunblane presbytery, it later transferred to Dunfermline. It passed to the United Free Church and united with Kincardine in 1914 as Kincardine and Tulliallan UF. The UFC charge was in the presbytery of Dunfermline and Kinross and the synod of Perth and Stirling.
