Kintore operated a parochial poorhouse or almshouse from the 1890s. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.
The poorhouse was located about a mile to the west of Kintore village and is identified as a poorhouse on the second edition Ordnance Survey map of 1901, but not on the first edition of 1869.
A much larger building now occupies the site.
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.
