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

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.
