Linda Marie Drysdale,

 In 1672, Culross was separated   and was added to the parish of Tulliallan. according to the passage below from  A Topographical Dictionary of Scotland .

Your relative was caught up in the changes . the only changes made by me was removal of  non Drysdale  listings 

  CULROSS, a royal burgh and a parish, in the county of Perth, 7 miles (W.) from Dunfermline, and 21 (W. N. W.) from Edinburgh; containing the villages of Blairburn and Lowvalley-field. This place, which is of remote antiquity, derives its name from its situation in a detached portion of the county, forming part of the peninsula of Fifeshire. The town, which is situated on the north shore of the Frith of Forth. The [Culross] parish formerly included the barony of Kincardine, which was separated from it in 1672, and added to the parish of Tulliallan. The church is a portion of the ancient abbey, originally a venerable cruciform structure, with a lofty tower rising from the centre, which, with the choir now appropriated as the parish church, and containing 700 sittings.
