Applecross, Ross and Cromarty
In around 1899, the parish of Applecross took out a 20-year lease on a property for use as a parochial 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 unknown, was recorded as being able to house 4 men, 4 women, and 4 children.
Note: many repositories impose a closure period of up to 100 years for records identifying individuals. Before travelling a long distance, always check that the records you want to consult will be available.
