Burntisland Residents in the Year 1633

Site navigation - please use menu on left (click here to display it if not visible). If problems, use site map.



The following is an alphabetical list of people living in Burntisland in 1633, taken from the stent list (taxation roll) of October 1633, which was recorded in the minutes of Burntisland Town Council for that year. It includes additional information about some of the people, but not the sums due from them. The information was extracted from the original records in the National Records of Scotland by Gill Paterson and Andrea Morrison. It is not a comprehensive list of all inhabitants, as poorer people did not pay taxes and as some names were too difficult to transcribe. Images of two of the original pages (with transcriptions) can be seen here.
