  • Notes 
    • Baptisms in Beach, Parish of Kilfinichen, Ross of Mull, Isle of Mull.

      Neil, son of Donald McGilvrae and Effie was Baptised Dec. 16, 1816.

      Archibald, son of Donald McGilvrae and Effie, was Baptised Dex. 21, 1819.

      Beach is pronounced “Bayock”. It may be derived from the Gaelic "Beith" meaning birch. It was spelled "Baech" on a map dated 1647. It is about 4 miles southwest of Pennyghael.

      There are references to Beach farm in the Argyll Estate instructions, 1771-1805, on page 105. It was mentioned as one of a number of places where ores were found in 1775. On page 140, the name of the tacksman was given as John Mclean. Tack was the word used for lease. That was in 1786. On the same page is as account of a march or boundary which was said to have been given by "William McGilvra in Sheiba and Malcolm McGilvra in Beach."
