NOTE: I have photographed all the pages of the Lieutenancy Minutes, plus made (very rough) notes associating each photo number with the information. All the mid Argyll parishes are included in those minutes, but I limited my own lists to those of North and South Knapdale. I have kept these photos, and would send of the file (which is large). Let me know! email: heathermc at northwestel dot net.
