Poorhouses in Scotland

Ayr Cunningham Kyle Maybole

  After 1845, parishes in Scotland could choose to set up workhouses or, as happened in a large proportion of cases, just to give out-relief. The parishes or Combinations (Unions) of parishes that did operate workhouses more usually called poorhouses or poor's houses are listed at this website. Note that where a Combination includes parishes in more than one county, its placement is based on the location of the poorhouse.

Other Bits and Bobs of interest to the Genealogist


Modern medicine is a high-tech, well-informed science today, yet even a severe outbreak of flu can be burdensome to a community. Imagine what it was like when an epidemic of any kind swept through a population, the doctors not understanding what caused it, no-one sure of any cure for it, and a high death rate which accompanied all these epidemics. What it was like, in Scotland.
