Those parishes marked "*" have undergone boundary changes which may be significant for genealogical purposes. Detailed comments will be found in the appropriate Parish entry, under Historical Geography. For a more general discussion of why Banffshire should have so many anomalous parishes, see the article on County versus Parish.

If you are interested in a Banffshire location, but are uncertain which parish it might come under, you can use the GENUKI Gazetteer to find out.
