The Communicants List of 1749.
The Communicants list is a list of persons attending the Parish Church of Dunrossness in 1749. This list was compiled by the minister, Rev John Mill .
The names of the Communicants were entered into a very small notebook. Since paper was valuable at the time Rev. Mills would have wasted no space on the pages. The names are entered under Parish and Place name. Under these headings the names of the persons are entered in up to 3 columns. Sometimes it is not clear which place a person in Columns 2 or 3 belongs to. In these cases a guess has had to be made.
