My thanks to Matthew J. Slick, B.A., M. Div. for allowing the use of information from his website he had related to George Wishart and John Knox, two historically important people in the history of religion in Scotland.
Some of the information used on this site is derived from previous works, with thanks to the authors (some who may now be deceased) namely the Rev. James Bannerman, Minister and the Rev. W. Y. Whitehead, B.D., PH.D. and any existing copyright is therefore adorned where applicable.
Historical accounts are important sources of reference, and it is hoped by using some of this information that we can understand more about our local area and its past.
Some artistic license is involved in the creation of this site and supplying information for the use of those that view this site.
General information is provided in places but there are no guarantee as to the accuracy of details contained within any of the pages and they are written based on the best information available at the time.
