011 ; 012 ; 019 ; 020 A parish in the eastern division of Aberdeenshire, it is bounded on the North by King Edward parish, on the East by New Deer & Methlick, on the South by Fyvie, and on the West by Turriff parishes respectively.
"The name Monquhitter Signifies the place for ensnaring the deer, and was derived from the farm on which the Church was originally built. From east to west the parish extends about 8 Miles and from South to North about 10½ miles. The Surface is generally of an undulating and monotonous character. The parish Church is conveniently placed for the greater part of the population, being close to the village of Cuminestown, and not more than a mile from the village Garmond, it is Situated upwards of Seven miles from the most distant part of the parish, but since the erection of the Chapel of ease of Millbrix in the parish of Fyvie, which was built in 1833 for the accommodation of remote districts of Monquhitter & Fyvie, there are few houses more than three miles distant from one or other of these places of worship, The parish Church was built in 1764 but in a very insufficient manner, and is now in considerable disrepair."
