OS 6" map, Perthshire, 2nd ed., (1900)

St Adamnan's Episcopal Church, Kilmaveonaig, was built in 1794. It replaced a Kirk of 1591 which itself had replaced an earlier structure.

G Hay 1957.

Cill Mo-Bheonaig, Kilmaveonaig, is Kilmevenoc, Kylemevenet, 1275, Kilmawewinok, 1595; the saint is probably Beoghna, second abbot of Bangor, who died in 606. The dedication to Adamnan is incorrect.

W J Watson 1926.

'Kilmaveonaig is one of the few old parish churches still in possession of the Scottish Episcopal Church. Here St Adamnan preached in the 7th century. Before 1275 it was a parish church and in 1591 it was rebuilt by Roberton of Lude. For some years after 1688, the four parish churches of Blair Atholl, Stroan, Lude and Kilmaeveonaig continued to be used, the Episcopal service being held in the latter two, then about 1700 the four parishes were combined into Blair Atholl and Stroan, and Kilmaveonaig came into the possession of the Espiscopalian Laird of Lude.

It was rebuilt in 1794, restored between 1866-71 and again with an enlargement in 1899. Its old bell is dated 1629 and came from Little Dunkeld' (information from transcript on notice board inside the church).

It is known as Kilmaveonaig. Scottish Episcopal Church.
