Hello all, I have in my possession a bible printed in 1792 and containing a number of entries relating to the Allan family and other families of Kilbirnie. Some of he pages are loose, all are badly stained and difficult to decipher but I have transcribed what I can as faithfully as possible with original spelling and grammar. The dates do not seem to be in chronological order and most are in one hand and so may have been compiled at a later date. Hope you find something relevant.
