 The general aim of these documents is to provide others - teachers, family and localhistory researchers and anyone with an interest in the history of Kintyre and its immediatesurrounding area - with as much material as possible for them to understand what Kintyrewas and is about.It is inevitable in such an exercise that, from time to time, interests stray outside Kintyreitself, not least into the waters surrounding it and, that there is a 'historic relationship'with Kilberry and Knapdale, on the far side of West Loch Tarbert, the documents here,generally, rather than referring simply to Kintyre, consider the whole area 'south of TheCrinan Canal'. Tarbert itself, at the northern end of Kintyre, derives its name from the Gaeliccompounding of 
tarruing
, to draw and
bata
, meaning boat. The variations of spelling areas numerous as the writers are ingenious ! In the oldest records it is Tarbart, then Tarbard. Later it is spelt discriminately as Terbert, Tarbert, Tarbett, Tarbet, Tarbatt, Tarbat, Torban, Tarbot, Tarbitt, Terbat, Turbet and too Terbart. Take your pick or phone afriend ? There was, though no date of its foundation can be traced, a shire of Tarbert whichincluded Kintyre, Gigha, Islay, Jura, Scarba, Colonsay and Mull plus the various andadjacent smaller islands. Rathlin Island also then reckoned to be within The Sheriffdom of  Tarbert. On February 26, 1481, Knapdale too was made part of Tarbert-shire. Previously itwas part of Perth-shire !1
 
Eventually, on Friday, June 28, 1633, Tarbert-shire was amalgamated with the shire of Argyll - The last Tarbert-shire M.P., elected in September 1628, was Sir Lachlan M’Lean of Morvern. Tarbert’s famous fair appears in records at least as early as 1705. The first documents in these pages were uploaded at the end of January 2008 and in thefirst eight months of these various papers, lists and indexes going online, nearly 80,000"hits" were recorded on the document archives here and on various 'sub-listings' onscribd.com and, though there are no 'hit-counters' on the other related websites linkedhere, a 'proportionately similar number' of people may too have accessed their pages.
