Annals of an Angus Parish

by Rev. W. Mason Inglis
(published 1888)

"Some years ago (1881) the writer of the following notes upon an old Angus Parish delivered several lectures upon the past history of the parish of Auchterhouse - copious extracts from which appeared at the time in the Dundee press. At the request of many of the parishioners and others to whom they proved somewhat interesting, the writer has consented to their publication 'in entenso'. They are the result of careful and laborious reading and research into many quaint and interesting departments of historical and ecclesiastical literature."

An Angus Parish in the Eighteenth Century

by Rev. W. Mason Inglis
(published 1904) pp. 200. index.

"This volume is practically a sequel of an earlier work, "The Annals of an Angus Parish" which dealt chiefly with the 17th century, and is written mainly with the view of describing and illustrating the many quaint and curious phases of old parochial and ecclesiastical life in Angus as are to be gleaned from the Parish Records of the 18th century."
