SCOTLAND’S CHURCHES AFTER 1700

This diagram is taken from the Collins Encyclopaedia of Scotland with some fairly minor changes. Although not specifically aimed at genealogists this is an excellent resource with small articles on places and people as well as other aspects of Scotland.

The top of the diagram starts about 1700 and shows only the Church of Scotland and the Cameronians as having had a prior existence. There are also the Episcopal Church of Scotland and the Roman Catholic Church which would be represented as two straight vertical lines going from top to bottom of the diagram. The churches shown could be classed as presbyterian but the Baptists and some others are omitted. I should also say that some texts I have read do not fully agree with the diagram
