Abercorn is a historic hamlet on the Hopetoun Estate in West Lothian, the parish kirk is part Norman and part post-Reformation. The parish is mentioned by Bede in 696 AD because it was at that time the site of a monastery (Gazetteer for Scotland, http://www.scottish-places.info/towns/townfirst5200.html). Christian was baptised on 6 July 1820 in the Abercorn Parish Kirk.
