Urquhart, Ross and Cromarty

[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

In the 1881 census, the parish of Urquhart (also known as Logie Wester) had two parochial poorhouses or almshouses. Such establishments were administered by the Parochial Board rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The first of these poorhouses was recorded as being at Balvaird. The second, noted as in the process of being built, was identified as being at 44 Conon Bridge.

A survey in 1904 recorded that Urquhart's parish almshouse was could house 2 men and 7 women under the care of a matron.



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.
