Read Highland Council Archive Guide text version

INTRODUCTION This guide to the Highland Council Archive provides an inventory of the records, both official and private, preserved in the Archive. It was compiled during the last 6 months of the life of the Highland Region (which ended 31 March 1996) as a record of the holdings of the Highland Regional Archive at that date. The Archive was formally established in 1990, under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, and was responsible for making "proper arrangements" for the records of not only the Region, but also those it inherited from the 5 County Councils which made up the new Region in 1975. The records of the 8 District Councils within the Highlands, established in 1975, and those Burgh records which they inherited, were outwith the responsibility of the Regional Archive. However, in the absence of official archival care in the Districts, certain Burgh records were deposited with the Regional Archive, notably those of Fortrose and Inverness. The records of Inverness Burgh, which represent the single most important archive collection in the Guide, are at present being recatalogued. Reference to these records in the Guide, therefore, is of a summary and incomplete nature. All archive guides soon become out of date as new records are received. This is particularly the case with this Guide, since the reorganisation of local government in April 1996, and the creation of the new single-tier Highland Council, has led to a major influx of local authority records into the new Highland Council Archive. These records, including those belonging to the defunct District Councils and the pre 1975 Burghs have had to be omitted from this Guide. Notwithstanding these omissions, it was believed important to have a guide available so that Council officials and members of the public could be made aware of the variety of local authority records which the Highland Council Archive already holds. It is intended that supplements to the Guide will be produced, updating the information it contains. In addition to the official records of local government, the Highland Council Archive is a place of deposit for private records which have been produced by Highland families, estates, businesses, societies and organisations over the centuries, and are deemed of archival interest worthy of permanent preservation. Before the establishment of the Highland Regional Archive in 1990, private deposits of records have been received by the Highland Region. Unfortunately in the absence of an archive service, certain collections had been broken up and artificial classifications imposed, resulting in loss of provenance and archival integrity. As a result, a major exercise of accessioning and recataloguing had to be undertaken before the private deposits could be properly identified. Unfortunately the provenance of many collections remains unknown. A number of accessions are photocopies of originals, these are identified by (P) beside an entry. The work of cataloguing the private archive collections and official records in on-going, therefore, not all records will have been listed in detail. Where the * is given beside an entry, this will indicate a list is available. The Highland Council Archive based in Inverness, and the North Highland Archive Area office, based in Wick, Caithness (whose records are listed separately in the Guide), both operate a public service whereby the records they hold are available for consultation. However, in both cases, appointments are preferred, especially in the case of the Highland Council Archive whose records are kept in separate stores. In addition, it should be noted that depositors may impose

their own conditions on public access to their records and in the case of official records, certain categories providing sensitive information on people may be closed for periods ranging from 30 to 100 years. The compilation of this Guide has been undertaken by Dr Sandra Bardwell without whose enthusiasm and professional commitment this, the first, Highland Council Archive Guide would not have been produced. The Highland Council Archivist, however takes full responsibility for errors and omissions. The Highland Council Archive wishes to acknowledge Mrs Lucille Campey of the Highland Family History Society for providing the incentive and encouragement for the compilation of this Guide and Mr Alan Lawson who did so much to preserve the Highland's archives prior to the establishment of a full-time archive service in 1990. Finally, recognition should be made of the clerical and administrative contribution made by Fiona MacLeod, over and above her normal duties, which has been of major assistance in the successful production of the Guide. The example of the Guide to the Cheshire Record Office has been used as a model for this Guide. The physical production of the Guide has been kindly undertaken by the Graphics Unit of Cultural and Leisure Services. The Highland Council Archive . Inverness Library . Farraline Park . Inverness .

HIGHLAND REGIONAL COUNCIL Highland Region was constituted under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 and existed from May 1975 until March 1996. It replaced five former County Councils (Caithness, Sutherland, Ross and Cromarty, Inverness and Nairn) and its boundaries took in part of Moray (Grantown on Spey Burgh and Cromdale district) and Argyll (Ardnamurchan district and Ballachulish and Kinlochleven electoral divisions). Altogether it became the largest local government unit in western Europe with an area of 2,513,000 ha. (9,700 square miles). The Western Isles, administration of which had previously been divided between Inverness and Ross and Cromarty County Councils, became a separate, all-purpose authority in 1975. The Regional Council was given responsibility for education, roads and transport, social work, water and sewerage, planning, economic and industrial development, the European Community, consumer protection and trading standards, libraries and leisure services. The functions of police, fire service, valuation and electoral registration were exercised through Joint Committees with the adjoining island authorities. It should be noted that the records of previous authorities are, in some cases, subsumed within some of the series of records listed below.

BADENOCH AND STRATHSPEY DISTRICT COUNCIL INVERNESS DISTRICT COUNCIL LOCHABER DISTRICT COUNCIL NAIRN DISTRICT COUNCIL ROSS AND CROMARTY DISTRICT COUNCIL SKYE AND LOCHALSH DISTRICT COUNCIL SUTHERLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 created a two-tier system of local government regional and district. Within Highland Region, eight district authorities were created to provide more local services, in contrast to the large scale strategic services provided by Highland Regional Council. The main responsibilities exercised by the District Councils were housing, environmental services, local licensing; they shared with the Region powers over recreational and leisure provision and industrial development. It should be noted that Caithness District Council has not been included in the following listing, its records being held in North Highland Archives, Wick.

Valuation rolls are held for each District Council for the period 1975 - 1986, and to 1989 for Inverness. Electoral registers are held for each District for 1992, and for some earlier and later years in most cases. The 1992 register for the Western Isles is also available.

COUNTY COUNCILS County Councils were established under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889. They assumed the powers of the Commissioners of Supply, and of Parochial Boards, excluding those in Burghs, under the Public Health Acts. The County Councils also assumed the powers of the County Road Trusts, and as a consequence were obliged to appoint County Road Boards. Powers of the former Police Committees of the Commissioners were transferred to Standing Joint Committees, composed of County Councillors, Commissioners and the Sheriff of the county. They acted as the police committee of the counties - the executive bodies for the administration of police. The Act thus entrusted to the new County Councils most existing local government functions outwith the burghs except the poor law, education, mental health and licensing. Each county was divided into districts administered by a District Committee of County Councillors. Funded directly by the County Councils, the District Committees were responsible for roads, housing, water supply and public health. Provision was also made for the creation of Special Districts to be responsible for the provision of services including water supply, drainage, lighting and scavenging. The Local Government Act (Scotland) 1930 abolished the District Committees and Parish Councils and transferred their powers and duties to the County Councils. It should be noted that the County of Inverness-shire included Harris, North and South Uist and Barra in the Western Isles, while Lewis (also in the Western Isles) was part of the County of Ross and Cromarty. The Education (Scotland) Act 1872 transferred the powers and duties of the heritors and ministers of each parish relating to education to School Boards, elected by ratepayers, for every Parish and Burgh. The Education (Scotland) Act 1918 abolished School Boards and replaced them with elected Education Authorities, on a county basis, vesting in them the management of education, as bodies corporate. In addition, the Act provided for the appointment of School Management Committees, representative of the Authority, parents and teachers. Necessary funds were channelled from rating income to the Committees via the Parish Councils. Their responsibilities were largely confined to the enforcement of attendance. The Education Authorities were abolished by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1929 and replaced by Education Committees, appointed by County or Town Councils and comprising at least a majority of Council members, together with a specified number of people experienced in education. In 1947 the School Management Committees were replaced by Sub-committees of the Education Committee. The records of the School Boards, Education Authorities, Education Committees, and any subsidiary committees, and of officers of those bodies, together with School Log Books, have all been included in the following section under their respective Counties and Burghs. While this arrangement may not fit precisely with the overall administrative structure of this Guide, it does acknowledge the fact that the same records commonly continued in use by successive bodies with the same or similar duties and responsibilities.

MORAY AND NAIRN JOINT COUNTY COUNCIL Moray and Nairn Joint County Council was established under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1929 and existed from 1930 to 1975. It exercised the full range of functions provided by County Councils, with joint officers appointed to oversee services. A separate Education Committee of the Joint County Council, which created its own series of minutes, was similarly established in 1930 and continued to 1975. Nairnshire County Council (see below) continued until 1975 as a separate body with much reduced powers. County Council Minute books, 1930-1975 R82

BURGHS The 13 Burghs in the Highlands were variously created over the centuries, either by privileges granted directly by the Crown, known as royal burghs (of which there were 7 in the Highlands in 1975), or created by subject superiors with permission of the Crown, known as burghs of barony or regality. In the 19th century, additional 'parliamentary' burghs or 'police' burghs were set up by Acts of Parliament. Burghs became responsible for most aspects of local administration and between 1833 and 1890 certain statutory functions were carried out by police commissioners including street cleaning, water supply and conventional policing. Burgh dean of guild courts controlled building operations and approved building plans. Most of the responsibilities of Burghs were transferred to the new District Councils under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973.

PAROCHIAL BOARDS PARISH COUNCILS The Poor Law Act 1845 established Parochial Boards to administer poor relief in each parish; between 1867 and 1890 the Boards were also responsible for some public health matters. Combination Poorhouses could be established by several parishes acting together. In terms of an Act of 1894, the Boards were replaced by Parish Councils elected by parishioners. Their main responsibility was administration of the Poor Law. The Councils in turn were abolished in 1930. The records have been grouped by local government area, for ease of reference (and reflecting the arrangement imposed when many were accessioned during the 1970s and early 1980s). It was common for Parish Councils to continue using the records created by the Parochial Boards (eg. minute books). The following abbreviations have been used where appropriate: MB - Minute book; GRP - General register of poor; A - Applications for relief; C - correspondence; FR - Financial records; CR - Children's register.

THE SHERIFFDOMS Since the 12th century, sheriffs have represented the Crown as judicial officers and administrators and were important units of government. From the mid 18th century, the powers and responsibilities of sheriffdoms were changed and extended, with sheriff deputes and their assistants, sheriff substitutes, and sheriff clerks becoming responsible for a wide range of administrative duties. These included accounting for Crown duties and rogue money funds, calling jurors, organising parliamentary elections, managing court houses and toll booths. The records of the Sheriff Courts and held by the Scottish Record Office.

COMMISSIONERS OF SUPPLY Commissioners of Supply were first appointed in 1667, as a Committee of the prominent landowners of each county, to collect the national land tax (the cess). In the 18th century they aquired responsibility for the maintenance of roads. The Police Acts 1839 and 1857 placed upon them additional statutory duties as the executive body for the administration of the police force in the county, as did the Contagious Diseases Animals Act, 1878. The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889 transferred most of the Commissioners' powers to the new County Councils; the Commissioners were finally abolished in 1930.

They had powers to raise and spend taxation for the purpose of road repairs, and replaced the earlier statute labour system of enforced work on roads by tenants and others. County Road Trusts were established by the Roads and Bridges (Scotland) Act, 1878 and assumed the responsibilities of the Statute Labour Trusts and the Turnpike Trusts (see over).
