1832 Perthshire Electoral Roll

Colin Mayall of Caledonian Connections has transcribed the 1832 electoral roll for Perthshire, for the following parishes: Crieff, Comrie, Muthill, Balquhidder, Fowlis Wester, Monzie, Auchterarder, Monzievaird & Strowan, Blackford, Madderty, Dunning and Killin. It's free to access and available at http://caledonianconnections.com

The entries list the heads of household who qualify for the vote, as well as their occupation and place of residence. Well worth a look, as this predates the first useful decennial census by some nine years.
