Statistical Accounts

The original Statistical Account of Scotland (dating from circa 1790) was the result of local ministers of the established church answering a range of up to 160 questions about their parishes.  It is a wonderful source for knowledge of local Scottish affairs. The exercise was repeated for Durris in 1838.
