        For Margaret Hector :

        Hi Margaret,
        No, the Episcopal Records are the records of the Scottish Episcopal Church. The Church of Scotland (the "official" state religion of Scotland) is Presbyterian.
        The Aberdeen & N.E.Scotland FHS has some Episcopal Birth and Marriage records transcribed but only for a limited period (I think from about 1820 to 1850). Most Episcopalians still registered their births & marriages in the Parish Records which were the preserve of the Church of Scotland. But, in my experience, I have found the Episcopal Records to have more detail than the Parish Records. Unfortunately, the Episcopal Records are not as readily accessible being held in the Scottish Records Office (or National Archives as it is now known). I don't know if, for example, St.Peters Church in Peterhead would still hold all their own original records......maybe other subscribers to the Forum might know ??

        The North East of Scotland was always of stronghold of the Episcopalian Church and many of the wealthier families of Peterhead were of that persuasion (largely a product of the North East's previous Jacobite sympathies).

        Best Regards................................Alex Ritchie

          I am hoping that somebody may know if there are burial records for William Boyd who died in Peterhead in 1860.
          Kind regards

            Hi Margaret,

            Can't tell you if the Church still holds the records, but an index created by Archibald Maxwell as been filmed.

            Register of Baptisms, "Episcopalian" Peterhead 1738 - 1788, complied by Archibald Strath Maxwell, LDS film number 874218 item 4.

            The burial record will not be in the Episcopal records, but the Peterhead Registrar will have the burial record, knowing the date of death you will be able to get the lair record.

            Regards, Wade.
