Rev James Walker

Rev James Walker

We believe that James Walcer (Walker) was a pre-Reformation Vicar who had conformed at the time of the Reformation. His name is listed in the "Register of Ministers, as vicar and minister of Stivenstoune in 1567." While at Stivenstoune, he received a stipend of L.40 Scots, or L.3, 6s. 8d. Sterling, with "the thryd of his vicarage," but the amount of this is not mentioned. He was a member of the Assembly on the 29th June 1562 and died before 28th July 1569 (Booke of the Kirk; Keith’s Hist; Reg. Min).
