Kinross, Kinross

[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

From about 1879, the parish of Kinross operated a parish poorhouse or almshouse. It was administered by the Parochial Board rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

In 1904, the establishment, location undetermined, could accommodate four men and four women under the care of a resident matron.
