Object detail

Name/title notes
Larbert Parish was first recorded as a chapel of St Ninian's Church in a charter of 1160, where Robert, Bishop of St Andrews granted St Ninian's Church and its chapels to the Abbey Church of St Mary, Cambuskenneth. Larbert was erected as a separate quoad omnia parish around 1581 following the Reformation, but was then linked with Bothkennar until 1616 and in 1617 was united with Dunipace by Act of Parliament, confirmed by a further Act of Parliament in 1624, although both parishes retained separate parish churches. In 1929 the name Larbert and Dunipace Old was adopted. In 1904 part of the parish was disjoined quoad sacra as Stenhouse. The union of Larbert and Dunipace was dissolved in 1962 and the name Larbert Old adopted.

The Church of Scotland kirk session for Larbert and Dunipace sat within the presbytery of Stirling until 1929. It then sat within the presbytery of Linlithgow and Falkirk and from 1976 in the presbytery of Falkirk.
