Rev John Keith

Rev John Keith MA

John Keith graduated from Marischal College, Aberdeen, in 1673. We was to become Minister at Stevenston High Kirk (possibly inducted on 1st Sept. 1688). The following year, 1689, it is possible that he was outed but then applied to the Presbytery of Aberdeen to be received into communion, but was refused. On a vacancy at Old Deer in 1710, he intruded and was deposed by the Synod of Aberdeen on 3rd April 1711. He died in August 1735 at Chancery Lane, London, aged 86. — [Aberdeen Synod ; Inq. Ret. de Tut., iv.]
