Bartholemew's Gazetteer, the Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland and the New Statistical Account all give different numbers of parishes belonging to Banffshire. The following list includes every parish which, perhaps in part only, or for a limited time, could be reckoned as belonging to Banffshire.
Those parishes marked "*" have undergone boundary changes which may be significant for genealogical purposes. Detailed comments will be found in the appropriate Parish entry, under Historical Geography. For a more general discussion of why Banffshire should have so many anomalous parishes, see the article on County versus Parish.
If you are interested in a Banffshire location, but are uncertain which parish it might come under, you can use the GENUKI Gazetteer to find out.
