Re: COMRIE parish or MUTHILL?

Ken Harrison

Thank you to all who have offered help so far.  I see now why I was puzzled.

I have viewed a film showing the Muthill parish registers (Spine of book clearly says “Muthill – B1704-1819; M1676-1761”) and page 242 appears to be headed Comrie in 1795.

Perhaps I have misread this word, but nothing else comes to mind.

I will try to attach part of the page, showing the heading and also 2 entries on the page which refer to Gualnacarrie.

Can any of you interpret this page differently?

Can you send more information on Archibald Sinclair date of birth, parents, wife we might be able to find the family. If you look for the family you might be able to find the place.

Is he connected to Sir John Sinclair the politician?

I’m looking at a page in a book which is named parochial registers of MUTHILL, Perth but the writing at the top of the register page says “COMRIE January 1795”.

Was COMRIE part of MUTHILL?  What other locales were also in MUTHILL?

The entry I am interested in is for an Archibald SINCLAIR “in GUALNACARRIE”.

Does anyone know what/where was Gualnacarrie?  And how it relates to CLATHICK, MONZIEVAIRD or TRINITY GASK?  [The family seems to have moved a lot]
