Aberdeenshire -- Ph [Parish] of Tough

[Note beside 'North Tillykerrie'] - I have given this spelling on the authority of the minister, Revd [Reverend] Alexander Milne, & of the Val [Valuation] Roll. There is no doubt it is now the recognised spelling but I think it is a corruption. We have Tuly Kery in 1444 & 1468, Tulliekeirie 1638 & Tillikirie. These last two indicate the penult. [penultimate] long, which it is not now. I think Tillykerrie must be adopted as representing the CS. [Common Speech] & spelling. [Initialled] JMcD
