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

  Plague

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.
