Notes: "Abercherder was the old name of this country and parish, which is now called Marnoch, the church being dedicated to St. Marnoch. This parish lies in the county of Banff, presbytery of Strathbogie, and synod of Moray. It is from nine to ten measures miles in length, and from four to five in breadth. In general it is rather flat, low-lying land, being mostly surrounded with hills upon the west, north, and east, which are covered with heath. The river Doveron, which is not navigable, runs from five to six miles along the south side of the parish. The soil near the banks of the river, is a rich loam, and produces good crops. Toward the upper part of the country, it is wet, stoney, and stiff. The crop consists of barley, oats, pease, potatoes, and turnips. A very large quantity is annually exported from Banff, Portsoy, or McDuff. The best arable and meadow ground rents per acre from 15 s. to 20 s.; the rent of inferior from 6 s. 8d. to 2 s. 6 d. The parish is fully provided with good peats. Considerable numbers of cattle are reared yearly and sold, and likewise a large quantity of butter and cheese." From The Statistical Account for Scotland, 1791-1799 Volume XVI, Banffshire, Moray & Nairnshire.
