Mr Stephen Wilkinson

Although very little is known about Mr Stephen Wilkynsoune, we can be certain that he was the Curate of Steynstoune in 1547. An extract from the records of the Commissary Court of Glasgow at this time reveals the name of a curate who had signed as witness to the will of an Archibald Weyr, whose will is dated 7th October 1547, which stipulates, “Do et lego, &c… corpusque mum sepeliendum Ecclesia Sancti Monachi de Steynstoune… Testis Dominus Stephanus Wilkynsoune, Curatus de Steynstoune.” It is believed that he held office in the Reformed Church in 1560.
