      Hello Lynley,
                              Ref. your question about the Church of Scotland in Peterhead.
                              The "Parish" Church is the one called (surprisingly !) the OLD PARISH CHURCH or the "Muckle Kirk" to those of us from Peterhead. This is a Church of Scotland Presbyterian Church.
                              There are other Church of Scotland Churches in the town :
       
      1) St.Andrews Church (On the corner of Queen Street & King Street)
      2) West Associate Church (not sure if it has still retained that title) on St.Peter's Street.
       
                               But, as I said above, the OLD PARISH CHURCH would be the one you are interested in.
       
                               Best Regards......................Alex Ritchie
      DEAR ALEX
      Thankyou very much for your E-Mail about the Peterhead Parish.., It was most helpful.
      Where are the Records for the Old Parish Church held ? And can you get them.
      If so can you please look to see if there is any of my KEAN FAMILY ON THEM PLEASE?
      Ann Kean married James Benzie at Peterhead on the 25/4/1875. and the Latter Day Saints Family History Records
      say Church of Scotland Peterhead Parish.
      Ann Kean was the only living daughter of Robert Kean and Helen Scott Kean . and Sister of my great grandfather.
      Others of this family born in Peterhead were
      Jane Thom kean born 1843[ died 11/12/1849
      Gordon [c] 10 july 1848[ peterhead aberdeen
      Duncan[c] 4 july 1850[ peterhead aberdeen
      Andrew[c] 26 april 1852 peterhead aberdeen
      Ann [c] 2 august 1854 peterhead aberdeen
      NOW BACK TO THE CHURCHS
      Looking threw notes I see
      Robert Kean [junior] died 19/2/1912 - [ AT 47 QUEEN STREET PETERHEAD[ AGED 75]
      And Joseph Kean died 20/4/1931-  [  AT 348 HOLBURN STREET ABERDEEN [ AGED 67
      BOTH BURIED IN THE CONSTITUTION STREET CEMETERY
      And so may be they went to St Andrews being close to where some of them lived . others lived in Erroll Stret
      IT WHOULD BE GREAT IF SOMEONE CHOULD LOOK THE PAPERS FOR DEATH NOTICE AT SOME STAGE
       
      [WELL ALEX A RATHER LONG ONE FOR YOU BUT THIS MIGHT HELP YOU FIND SOME FOR ME
