Included is information on the one synod, eight presbyteries (Kincardine, Garioch, Alford, Deer, Ellon, Turriff, Strathbogie, Aberdeen, and Church Lands), and ninety-seven parishes that make up the county.Biographical details are given in the case of every individual mentioned, as far as possible, with his or her progenitors and immediate descendants; besides any interesting historical or personal events in which they took part, and occasional longer accounts, especially where these can be drawn from unpublished or not easily available sources.”A few historical notes are added dealing with the state of the country at the period covered by this document, which was a time of great political and religious ferment in Scotland.Four portraits, a map of the Shires of Aberdeen and Banff (1826), Notes on the Contra of the Account, Notes on the Cess Roll, a bibliography and an index to full-names, places and subjects add to the value of this work.
