in its full and una
It will of course be borne in mind by the tion of 1306 reader, that the preceding is but a synopsis, or abridged summary, of the
original taxation from bridged which it has been compiled. It may be inte
resting, however, to give a specimen in the form of a continuous extract from the taxation itself, by which the nature of that document may be better understood. The following is, in its unabridged form, the portion of it which belongs to the rural deanry of Moylinny, in the diocese of Connor.

• The error which obviously exists either in the Valuation or Tenth of this Church, is shewn by the sum to be in the latter, which has 6s. instead of ?s.
+ The Hospitallers having been exempted from this taxation, the churches held by members of their body have no charge placed opposite to their names in the above cited record.
