Overview

The period covered by these records was one of great social and economic change in lowland Scotland.

Lasswade was chosen as a particularly well-documented parish which, owing to its proximity to Edinburgh, highlights these changes. A significant coal producer, its records are also an important primary research source for early labour history.

The records consist of the Poll Tax giving information on population distribution and wealth, parish registers detailing baptisms, marriages and deaths and testimonials of good behaviour reflecting status and movements of people between parishes.
