• Breanish Tenants 1807

    This list from the Seaforth Estate papers shows the tenants in Breanish in possession of crofts in 1807, and their (perfectly uniform) annual rents. The bare rent for each is in fact £ 3.12.6, with supplementary charges for the school salary (6d), keeping hens (5d) and the doctor’s salary (6d), giving a total per year of £ 3.13.11 per family.

    The number in the first column does not correspond to later croft numbers, which (as far as we know) were only assigned in 1849.
