Parish numbers

Hope someone can clarify this. Re parish numbers that say start 644/1, 644/3 etc. Does the number after the/ designate a time period eg say 1850-1860 for that parish or something else altogether? I thought it meant a district within that parish.
Thanks

Problems With SP pages

Good Morning everyone, haven't posted in a while but now need some techie help. My pages on SP (well over 15) don't seem to want to move from Page 1, when I click on any of the other pages, they aren't opening. Have contacted SP but just wondered if anyone else had similar problems.
Thanks

Re: Farquhar Family research

Sorry can't help with finding out more about Katherine Kinloch but the Farquhar name is a Northern Scotland name, I have loads of Farqhars from there and the Braemar area. Maybe they had been up in Aberdeen visiting family
Good luck with your search.
