Online Index to the Statistics of the Annexed Estates 1755-56

Gordon Johnson has just uploaded an index to the people listed in "Statistics of the Annexed Estates, 1755/1756". As as result of the 1745 rebellion, some major landowners had their estates confiscated by the crown, with agents sent in to establish the facts, and this ended up (in part) in a collection of data relating to each estate, the baronies within, and the farms, etc. Much of the area was in Perthshire, so is worth perusing for relatives.

Gordon's index, along with others of genealogical interest, can be accessed at http://www.kinhelp.co.uk/KinHelp/genealogical-indices .
