Scotland - Gazetteer Topic Page


  • Gazetteer of British Place Names - Notes for Historians and Genealogists. The Gazetteer of British Place Names, whilst intended primarily as a contemporary gazetteer, is also a valuable resource to historians and genealogists.
  • Places in Scotland which lay in a registration county of a different name to their historic county in the 1861 Census.
    At the time of the 1861 Census of Scotland, some parishes lay in more than one county. For the purposes of the Census of 1861 each parish was considered to be wholly a part of a single registration county. A table lists the parishes concerned, their relationships and their assigned registration county.
