Minute of Assembly, 29th May 1806

The General Assembly proceeded to consider the overture anent non-residing Elders. After reasoning, agreed without a vote to dismiss the overture as unnecessary, in respect that when a change of residence renders it impossible for an Elder to discharge the duties of a member of the Kirk-Session of that parish in which he formerly resided, it is competent for the Kirk-Session, and is in many parts of Scotland the usual practice, to find that if he does not, within the space of twelve months, return to reside, he can no longer continue one of their number, and to intimate to him by letter that they have come to this resolution.
