Valuation Rolls 1895
The Valuation Rolls in Scotland for 1895 offer a colourful picture of life in Scotland during the late Victorian era.
The new records, comprising 2,095,707 indexed names and 75,565 digital images, cover every kind of building, structure or property in Scotland which was assessed in 1895 as having a rateable value. The records reach right across the social classes, since the Valuation Rolls contain the names of property owners, tenants and occupiers, and, in many cases, occupations are also listed.
As such, the new records will let family historians find out more about their ancestors, and discover the value of the property they rented or owned. The Valuation Rolls will also help genealogists to find out who their neighbours and landlords/tenants were. These new records will also complement the 1915 and 1905 Valuation Rolls, which were released on the ScotlandsPeople website in March 2012 and January 2013. Since the 1895 Rolls occur between the 1891 and 1901 censuses, they should also help to fill in gaps between the two censuses and help family history researchers to find 'missing' ancestors.
