It has been found impossible to trace the remaining Lands in this parish, from the date of the original valuation roll in 1683, to the date of the oldest Cess Book 1748. The valuation, as it stood in 1748, is therefore given in the second column, and the subsequent divisions, are traced from it; and not as in other cases, from the original roll in 1683.
