Tullibody  Clackmannanshire

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Tullibody like this:

Tullibody, a village in Alloa parish, Clackmannanshire, 23/8 miles NW of the town. It claims to have been founded by Kenneth MacAlpine about the year 844; and its church was built by David I. in 1149, Tullibody being a separate parish till 1600, when it was united to Alloa. ...


In 1559 the French troops under D'Oysel employed the roof of this church to replace a demolished bridge across the Devon; and the building remained dismantled till the middle of the 18th century, when it was converted into the mausoleum of the Abercromby family. A neat Free church dates from Disruption times; and Tullibody has also a post office under Stirling and a public school. Tullibody House is a plain old mansion, near the left bank of the winding Forth, and 1¼ mile W by N of Alloa. (See Airthrey, Ailoa, and Menstrie.) Pop. of village (1861) 602, (1871) 694, (1881) 694.—Ord. Sur., sh. 39, 1869.
