Alness, Ross and Cromarty

[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

From around 1884, the parish of Alness paid £2 a year for the rental of a property used 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 new poorhouse, exact location unknown, was recorded as being able to house 2 men, 2 women, and 2 children.
