Clatt, Aberdeenshire

Clatt established a parochial poorhouse or lodging house in about 1856, with funds provided by the parish council. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The premises, which in 1904 comprised two rooms plus a sick room, are believed to have been located at the south-east of the Kirktown of Clatt, perhaps at Ford, although no indication is given on the first edition (1869) or second edition (1900) Ordnance Survey maps.



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.
