007.09 A superior dwelling house occupied by the incumbent of the Est. [Established] Church of Shettleston. This house was purchased by the
Managers, or Kirk Session, of the Est. [Established] Church of Shettleston. The money invested in the purchase was a charitable bequest of 500£ [£500] left in the hands of the managers as trustees. The Minister pays a nominal rent for the use of it. Since he has occupied it the name of "Earlybraes, or manse" have always been coupled. The proper name is "Earlybraes" which it always bore until it became the property of the managers of the Ch. [Church]. It cannot be said that the name is changing from the original one, or that any greater change may take place in it while occupied by the Minister of the Parish. If it were otherwise occupied, which is very unlikely to happen, the original & proper name would no doubt be resumed.

Transcriber's notes

The Description is unusual in elaborating on what is a common occurrence in 19th Century Scotland. Also unusual to refer to "Managers" rather than "Elders" of the Kirk Session.
