Old Photograph Glencairn Parish Church Kirkland Scotland

Old photograph of Glencairn Parish Church in Kirkland, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The Gothic style church was built in 1836 to a design by architect William MacCandlish of Dalry. James Renwick, born 15 February 1662, died 17 February 1688, was born in Moniaive, son of a weaver. He became a Scottish minister, and was the last of the Covenanter martyrs. After the covenanter John Blackadder had been expelled from his parish at Troqueer, near Dumfries, in 1662 he moved to Caitloch in Glencairn parish, where he sometimes preached to large assemblies. When the authorities heard about his activities, he was forced to move again, and began a wandering life.
