Interesting to note that the Session meeting date is Aug 1822 when it was decided to buy session books to record Kilchoman Parish Marriages and Baptisms but the first recorded bapt and marriage were in 1821, almost 1 1/2 years earlier.  Was someone documenting earlier – or was it from memory?  As such, those dates prior to Aug 1822 cannot be considered “primary” sources.
 
Thanks for sharing Kilchoman BM facts Iain and Elaine.
