Free Church of Scotland Ministers (1843-1900): Publications N-Y

Publications of Free Church Ministers:

N – Y

 

Publications either by or about a minister are generally included under his name in Ewing’s Annals, in the case of Free Church ministers, or, in the case of others, in the General Index of Scottish Presbyterian Ministers. However, in some cases the list is so extensive that it is not convenient to burden a relatively short biographical article with a long list of publications. In these cases, his publications are found here.
