Brechin Diocesan Library: Sermons of Thomas J. Holland, Rector of Laurencekirk

Sermons of Thomas Holland. The sermons were apparently written into the notebooks 1933-1941 while Holland was at Laurencekirk and most appear to be transcripts or altered versions of sermons delivered at Grangemouth, Falkirk and Dundee, 1913-1920. Others were delivered in 1943 and some have additional notes dated 1940. The number of hymns used in the service are also occasionally given.

Brechin Diocesan Library: Miscellaneous Sermons

A collection of hand-written sermons written singly or in groups of up to seven in one volume. Dates, locations and sometimes the religious occasions on which the sermons were delivered are usually noted on the front page. However, It has not been possible toiestablish the authorship of all the sermons in this collection; the names of Bishop Alexander, Bishop Petrie, Bishop Gerhard and John Leith of Huntly appear on some of the sermons. On others there is the occasional reference to authors from whose work part or whole sermons have been borrowed or abridged; these original authors include Joseph Mede, [George] Stanhope, [Daniel] Waterland, [Rodger] Altham and others. From what appear to be references to dates and places where the sermons were delivered it is possible to assume that a large number of the sermons were written or used by Alexander Jamieson at Luthermuir and Glasgow 1770-1823 and William Murray at Muchalls, Kearn and Duffus 1810-1830. It is also possible that some of the sermons, apparently preached at Teggerton, Balzordie and Brechin, are the work of James Sommerville (or Sommervail).
