The map above is based on a sketch found in GENUKI's Banff pages which again was based on an 1845 map in the New Statistical Account of Scotland. As the GENUKI editor explains, the boundaries of Banffshire varied greatly over time. He lists another nine parishes that were part of Banffshire although not in this map: Cairnie, Enzie, Gartly, Glass, King Edward, New Machar, Old Deer, Rothes and St Fergus.
The Genuki article quotes from various 19th-century Scottish Gazetteers. Similar descriptions of the various parishes can be accessed from the Banffshire page.
The article from Wikipedia, quoted below, discusses Banffshire as surveyed after 1996.
