Abernethy and Kincardine
Abernethy and Kincardine is a civil parish, former registration district and ecclesiastical parish, in the Highland council area of Scotland. The name is not in use for any modern administrative entity, but remains as the usual description for historical purposes, in the case of the registration district being only a name change; the name "Abernethy" is derived from the local River Nethy. The name Kincardine is of mixed Gaelic and Pictish origin, "ceann" being Scots Gaelic for head and "cardden" the Brythonic/Pictish for a wooded area; the current main village, Bridge of Nethy, now more well known as Nethy Bridge was located around the confluence of the River Nethy and the Duack Burn, at grid reference NJ001206. The Church of Scotland parish was created in the 16th century by the combination of the parishes of Kincardine and Abernethy, both of which have ancient origins and past or associations with other churches. Both parish churches remain in use; the baptism registers have poor coverage around the 1820s, apart from those events not recorded if the parishioners were members of other churches.
The pre-1855 marriage registers are in a similar condition but contain some "extra" entries concerning parishioners who married in other parishes or denominations, including some Roman Catholic marriages. Changes in modern church-going habits have led to Church of Scotland ministers covering more than one of the original parishes, in this case resulting in the once "United Parish" of Abernethy and Kincardine becoming separated again and the parts joined to neighbouring parishes; this church is on the West side of the Nethy Bridge to Grantown-on-Spey road, beside the ruins of Castle Roy. The burial ground is in current use for new lairs. Most pre-1855 inscriptions have been recorded and published A rough-surfaced roadside parking area with space for a number of vehicles gives level access to the church and serves Castle Roy; this church is on a small knoll set back from the road between West Croftmore. It is somewhat smaller than Abernethy Kirk and few new lairs have been created in recent years but burials still take place in existing lairs.
Most pre-1855 grave inscriptions have been published. The churchyard contains a old Yew tree as found where such a site has pre-Christian associations. There is room for two or three vehicles to park on a grassed area beside the churchyard gate; the civil parish straddled parts of Inverness-shire and Morayshire. The parish council has since been abolished, it remained as a registration district until 2001 matching the 19th century census district. Due to a combination of registration district boundaries not being tied to local authority boundaries and changes of the county boundary, events will be found described as happening in Invernessshire or Morayshire but the same address within this parish is being referred to if only the county varies; the Glenmore area was moved to the Rothiemurchus registration district on 1 October 1956 thus transferring some places which would have been recorded as being within Kincardine in this parish and still might be so described in some more recent registrations.

Kincardine, Ontario (community)
Kincardine is a community and former town, located in the municipality of Kincardine on the shores of Lake Huron in Bruce County in the province of Ontario, Canada. The namesake town is located at the mouth of the Penetangore River, was founded in 1848 by the name of Penetangore; the current municipality was created in 1999 by the amalgamation of the Town of Kincardine, the Township of Kincardine, the Township of Bruce. The former town is Ward 1 within the current municipal boundaries; the locals of the area still use the former town's motto: "Where You're A Stranger Only Once". Kincardine is known for its sandy beaches including Station Beach, located at the mouth of the Penatangore River. Adjacent to the beach is Kincardine Harbour which boasts Kincardine's iconic lighthouse where the "Phantom Piper" pipes down the sun every evening in the summer through to Labour Day. On summer Saturday evenings Kincardine hosts a Pipe Band Parade where the Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band parades from Victoria Park down Queen Street.
Once the band has passed, onlookers join in the parade and continue to march down Queen Street behind the band. Kincardine is home to the Bluewater Summer Playhouse, the only professional live theatre in Bruce County. Kincardine is a municipality located on the shores of Lake Huron in Bruce County in the province of Ontario, Canada; the current municipality was created in 1999 by the amalgamation of the Town of Kincardine, the Township of Kincardine, the Township of Bruce. The full municipality had a population of 11,389 in the Canada 2016 Census. In the Canada 2011 Census, the community of Kincardine was counted as a population centre, with its own census data aggregated separately from that for the municipality as a whole; the population centre had a population of 6,725, representing 60 per cent of the population of the entire municipality of Kincardine. On March 5, 1848, Captain Alexander M. MacGregor sailed his little schooner "THE FLY" into the mouth of the Penetangore River. In Ojibwa, Penetangore means "river with sand on one side".
This refers to the sand bar at the mouth of the river. Settlers Allan Cameron and William Withers landed their ship at the site of the modern-day town, in that part of Canada West known only as the Queen's Bush, founded a community called Penetangore. Near where they landed they built a log cabin. Withers built a dam and a sawmill, opened the following year. By the winter of 1848/49 seven families inhabited the settlement. On January 1, 1850 the Queen's Bush was divided into counties, the counties were divided into townships. Penetangore now found. Both the township and the county were named after James Bruce, 8th Earl of Elgin and 12th Earl of Kincardine. Francis'Paddy' Walker arrived in Kincardine driving from Goderich on the ice along the Lake Shore, in a horse drawn cutter in the spring of 1850, he brought with him his wife and their seven sons. The Walker House Hotel was built that same year; the sand flats became the harbour and the center of intense commercial and industry activity. An outstanding example of the pioneer entrepreneurs who helped create strong communities, Mr. Walker operated a schooner, Mud Turtle, was a contractor on the Durham Road as it was cut eastward through the bush from Kincardine.
In the summer of 1851, the Durham Road reached its terminus at Penetangore, allowed access to the settlement by land. The road would be considered nearly impassable by today's standards, but at the time represented a significant improvement in communication and trade. A post office was established at Penetangore in the same year. In the early years of Bruce County, Kincardine was the only township with any appreciable settlement, served as the seat of local government for the entire county. Tensions rose to the point where this arrangement could no longer be maintained, on January 1, 1854 several new municipalities were formed, leaving only Kinloss Township and Bruce Township in union with Kincardine. Kinloss subsequently separated in 1855, Bruce in 1856. Over this time, the name Penetangore had fallen out of favour, was discontinued when the Village of Kincardine was incorporated on January 1, 1858. Kincardine's first school was opened in the summer of 1851; the building was situated on the flats near the mouth of the river.
This was the school until 1855. During the years 1856 to 1866, a long, convoluted political battle was fought over the location of the county seat. Kincardine and Walkerton were the main contenders, the latter emerged victorious. Kincardine would continue to dominate the county economically, but had lost much of its early political primacy. To help govern the growing town a Town Hall was erected in December 1872 at the cost of $8000. On the first floor of the building it had municipal rooms, a caretaker’s apartment and a fire hall, while the basement was a detention room and had several storage areas; the 2nd floor was an auditorium for town speeches and community plays. In 1874 James Watson and Andrew Malcolm opened Watson and Malcolm, a furniture company. After the death of its founders the company was renamed Andrew Malcolm Furniture Company. With a new town council a law passed in 1874 stated that Kincardine was to be enforced by one constable; the first constable was Mr. William Purves, his office was in his home, identified by a large sign over his front door which read "POLICE."
As the town constable he would have many respon
Kincardine O'Neil is one of the oldest villages in Deeside, in the northeast of Scotland. It is situated between Aboyne; the village is known locally as Kinker, was known as Eaglais Iarach in Gaelic. It was designated as a conservation area in 1978, it will be connected to the Deeside Way. Since ancient times there was a crossing of the Dee River at Kincardine O'Neil. Locations of the Dee crossings along with alignment of ancient trackways formed a major impetus for location of early castles and settlements. In the vicinity of Kincardine O'Neil the Middle Ages trackways to the south had a particular influence on development in and around Kincardine O'Neil and Aboyne Castle. In the 19th century, the Deeside Railway bypassed the village, impeding the expansion of the settlement, unlike towns nearby. By 1895 the population of Kincardine O'Neil exceeded 200. Most of the extant buildings were built in the 19th century; the area boasts a village store and an antiques shop. The main street possesses a plant shop that sells plants and some gardening accessories and a "mineral shop" that sells various gems and other mineral curios.

Kincardine or Kincardine-on-Forth is a small town on the north shore of the Firth of Forth, in Fife, Scotland. The town was given the status of a burgh of barony in 1663, it was at one time a reasonably prosperous minor port. The townscape retains many good examples of Scottish vernacular buildings from the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries, although it was altered during the construction of Kincardine Bridge in 1932–1936. Kincardine Bridge runs south from Kincardine, it is the main crossing-point of the Firth of Forth between Stirling. Kincardine Bridge used to be a swing bridge and opened to large ships, but this was closed in a final ceremony in 1988; the bridge had seven spans made of steel. There was a large control room at the top of the bridge, this used to be manned to allow the operators to open the bridge to large ships and river traffic. In 2005, it was given Category A listed status by Historic Scotland. In 1869, the population was 3,000 and salt mining was the primary industry. During the last several decades, the town has suffered from increased congestion due to the increase of vehicles using the bridge.
This heavy congestion was reduced in 2005 by the opening of an eastern bypass connecting the Kincardine bridge with the A985 Inverkeithing/Forth Road Bridge artery. In 2008 the western section of the town was bypassed with the opening of the Clackmannanshire Bridge. Kincardine is the location of the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan Castle on the outskirts of the town.
